Latest leak suggests glossy water-resistant build with no USB Type-C port.

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.

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.
