The imminent announcement of Samsung Galaxy S7 and its bigger brother Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has seen plenty of details leaked about the two devices flooding tech websites every now and then.
The latest of this information is the revelation by 9to5Google that the two 2016 flagships have reportedly passed U.S. FCC certifications. According to the report, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge went through LTE and RF tests, but there is nothing more to uncover from these documents with respect to the handsets.
The leaked info was, however, a little bit lenient and provided a little more detail about the two phones – their model numbers. It seems Samsung Galaxy S7 will go by the model number SM-G930A whereas the larger Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will have model number SM-G935A. Once released, the model numbers will slightly vary depending on the region it is being used as well as the carrier, but this will only affect the last letter.
Samsung Galaxy S7 to come with Snapdragon 820 and 4GB RAM
As mentioned at the beginning, many have been talking about the forthcoming Galaxy S7, its possible features and specs, among other things. Well, many have pointed towards an S7 flagship with a Snapdragon 820 CPU and supported by a RAM of 4GB. This will only be for those in the U.S. Reports are that Samsung will go for its in-house Exynos 8890 as far as other regions are concerned.
Other expected specs of the Galaxy S7 are a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED QHD display screen with ClearForce technology (3D Touch-like feature), fingerprint scanner, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and a host of other current-gen features and capabilities. There are rumors that Samsung will bring back the microSD card with this device after having found a way to combine external and internal storage without creating any detrimental effects on the performance. Nonetheless, you will still have 32GB of onboard storage for the base model, but there is also room for getting a 64GB model.
Samsung Galaxy S7 release date
As far as the release date of this device is concerned, the FCC documents did not mention a thing. But the South Korean tech giant recently confirmed that it will be attending the upcoming MWC 2016 event in Barcelona. In addition to this, the company has already sent invitations to media houses regarding a special event it intends to hold on February 21, a day before the main show begins.
Samsung will announce the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge on this day, which means that company reps will be all over the show with preview versions of these devices. Don’t expect to get this device in your local shop this very day, but you can be sure to get it as from March 11, latest reports reveal.
