The source reiterates on the March 11th launch window and the new 12 MP f/1.7 rear camera that is expected to be flushed with the design.

We only recently reported about the possible March 11th launch of the Galaxy S7 in the United States. Now, a separate source purportedly from a Samsung employee in South Korea has confirmed the rumors and even suggests that the March 11th launch date will be a worldwide target. The source is also claiming that the new Galaxy S7 devices will indeed be unveiled at MWC 2016 taking place on February 22nd to the 25th as most users have been suspecting.

Aside from the launch and reveal details, the new Galaxy S7 will reportedly be predominantly Black for all SKUs to convey a sense of quality. Color options will still be made available with Gold, Silver, and White as the initial three choices. One of the biggest innovations will be its 12 MP rear camera, which focuses not on the number of pixels but on the larger image sensor and set of lenses instead for improved picture quality. The camera is expected to have a wide f/1.7 aperture for even better pictures in low light conditions without necessarily having the lenses protrude from the back. The Nexus 6P, for example, is equipped with one of the better cameras available for a smartphone, but many users may find its final design to be less than sleek.

Other mentioned features are the smartphone's improved dust and water resistance as well as the return of the MicroSD slot, which was already rumored some months ago.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
