The leaked roadmap from China Mobile shows the next Samsung flagship with Snapdragon 820 SoC or Exynos 8890 depending on region.

The next Samsung flagship could be coming this March for at least one territory in Asia. A leaked roadmap from China Mobile - the largest mobile operator in the world by number of customers - shows the Galaxy S7 priced at around 3000 Yuan or 470 USD, but the price is likely a placeholder based on the current Galaxy S6. If true, however, an entry-level Galaxy S7 may retail for just over 500 Euros in Europe or 500 USD in the United States.

As reported before, the Galaxy S7 is also expected to launch with the Galaxy S7 Edge. The current rumor mill shows the S7 to be a 5.2-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED smartphone with either a Snapdragon 820 SoC or in-house Exynos 8890 SoC depending on the configuration and region. Its rear 20 MP camera may utilize Samsung's proprietary BRITECELL RGBW sensor and the chassis could be a magnesium alloy version of the current Galaxy S6 design.

If the roadmap proves true, then the Galaxy S7 may be unveiled on February 21st for a launch on March 18, which would line up quite well with Mobile World Conference 2016 set to take place from February 22nd to the 25th in Barcelona, Spain.

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.
