Samsung reportedly cancels Galaxy S7 Edge+
Although Samsung still has to confirm them, the devices from the upcoming S7 family have been in the rumor mill for a while. Unfortunately, initial rumors mentioned three or even four of them, but now it looks like only two are left, namely the Galaxy S7 and the larger Galaxy S7 Edge. According to a recent Twitter message by Evan Blass, Samsung will only launch these as they just dropped the plans of a Galaxy S7 Edge+.
While the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge had the same display size, their successors will not. If the rumors turn out to be true, the Galaxy S7 will be a 5.1-inch smartphone while the Galaxy S7 Edge+ will get near phablet territory, with a screen size of 5.5 inches. Blass, also known as @evleaks, claims its initial S7 predictions have been confirmed - the new Galaxy S7 will be IP67-certified for protection from water and dust and will feature a microSD slot, as well as a larger power pack.
South Korean journalists claim they already had a Galaxy S7 preview, although nothing is official yet. However, MWC 2016 is now less than a month away, and it is very likely to see the new Samsung flagships then, so stay tuned.
