Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge teaser video confirms February unveiling date

Samsung Galaxy S7 event confirmed

Samsung has published a video teaser for the forthcoming Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones, confirming that they will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress as usual.

The 14-second video on YouTube (below) reveals that the device will be unveiled on 21 February, and seems to suggest that the event will be available to watch via the firm’s Gear virtual reality headset.

The new Samsung devices will be central to the company’s attempts to take the smartphone fight to Apple having watched its rival eat away its market share thanks to the larger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices in 2014, and again in 2015.

Recent leaks of Antutu benchmarks suggest that the Galaxy S7’s key specs will include a Snapdragon 820, a 5.1in QHD display, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and 12MP and 5MP cameras.

This appears to be a downgrade on the 16MP sensor found on the Galaxy S6 family. More positively, a microSD slot, sorely missing from recent high-end Galaxy smartphones, has been heavily rumoured for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, as has a water-resistant unibody design.

Unusually, the Galaxy S7 and its curved-screen Galaxy S7 Edge variant are expected to launch with one of two different processors.

The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Samsung’s own Exynos M1 have been tipped to power the devices, although it isn’t clear whether this will be a straight choice for consumers or whether each chip will be region-exclusive.

The Samsung video comes at the same time that the first leaked pictures of the device hit the web after VentureBeat published what it claims are promo shots of the phones, including the one shown below.

Battery life is also expected to improve following claims that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will feature 3000mAh and 3600mAh batteries, up from 2550mAh and 2600mAh. Wireless charging support is also expected.
