Reports claim Samsung Galaxy S7 will come in both 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch sizes
The successor to the 5.1-inch Galaxy S6 is expected to come in two sizes sporting larger 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch displays. Perhaps more interestingly, the South Korean ETNews source is claiming that the 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 will act as the successor to the Galaxy S6 Edge, so there may be no "proper" Galaxy S7 Edge that users may have been expecting.
The same report is saying that Samsung expects to ship 3.3 million 5.2-inch Galaxy S7 units and 1.6 million 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 units for launch in February 2016. The Galaxy S smartphones have a history of being revealed at the Mobile World Conference event in Barcelona, Spain, which also happens to take place every year in late February.
The current rumor mill is suggesting high-end hardware for the Galaxy S7 including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC or Exynos 8890 SoC depending on the launch region. Unlike the Galaxy S6, the S7 may even bring back the beloved MicroSD slot for expandability. Nothing is official, of course, but it is more than likely that we will hear more about the next Samsung flagship in the coming weeks.
