China Mobile claims March 2016 reveal date for Samsung Galaxy S7
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.
