More details and video leak on upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7
We're only a few days away from the first press conference of MWC 2016 when Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, and a plethora of other mainstream and budget offerings. Nonetheless, ongoing leaks have already revealed much about the unannounced flagships.
AndroidAuthority.com has published on a handful of leaked photos and even a video showing the alleged Black Galaxy S7 in action. Accordingly, the smartphone will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, will be IP67/68 certified for dust and water protection, and be equipped with a 12 MP rear camera and MicroSD slot.
Battery capacity is expected to be 2800 mAh instead of the rumored 3000 mAh. The smartphone may not even have a USB Type-C port and could instead stick with the tried-and-true Micro-USB port for charging and data.
The Galaxy S7 should be shipping before the end of Q1 2016 with the octa-core Exynos 8890 SoC or the Snapdragon 820 SoC depending on the region. Competing manufacturers like LG, HP, Huawei, Lenovo, Xiaomi, and others are expected to make similar announcements this month regarding their respective lineups for the rest of 2016 and beyond.
