Insiders claim this handset will launch in 5.2-inch and 5.8-inch variants before the end of the year.

While previous rumors about the next-gen Galaxy S7 flagship mentioned two different processors, a new leak reveals that Samsung's upcoming handset will also be available in two sizes. While the processors that Galaxy S7 might use do not bring anything new when it comes to the brand - Samsung Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon, the two screen sizes, and their resolution could take some by surprise.

According to an exclusive report published yesterday by Asia Today, Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S7 in two variants, one with a 5.2-inch screen, and the other with a 5.8-inch display. The same inside source that revealed this info also mentioned that Samsung Galaxy S7 might offer a 4K resolution display similar to the recently unveiled Sony Xperia Z5 Premium. Unfortunately, it is not known if both variants will offer such a display or only one of them.

While sources claim that Samsung Galaxy S7 could arrive in time for the holiday season, there is a small probability for this to happen. Since they did not confirm anything yet and did not tease anything resembling a next-gen Galaxy flagship, either, we just need to wait for more info to show up.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
