Samsung always has some of the most anticipated devices every year, and is never short on rumors or leaks. There has been a new batch of them coming out lately, leading up to MWC. Our last article covered most of the rumors, and most haven’t changed.
The biggest of them being that the microSD card slot will return to the S7 and S7 Edge. As well as the IP67 dust and water resistance. Along with keeping the Quad HD AMOLED screens, dropping the camera to a 12MP shooter with an f/1.7 aperture. Plus keeping a similar design as the S6 and S6 Edge have. Except for losing the camera bump and the S7 Edge making a jump to 5.5 inches.
From the newly leaked images which come from famed Evan Blass of @evleaks. We can see the design will be very similar, if these are real. The date even hints to Samsung Unpacked event.
Which is scheduled at MWC on February 21st. Which is scheduled February 21st a day before MWC is set to begin.
Add to that the two latest rumors about the phones having 17 hours of video playback at full brightness, and them launching March 11th in the US and Europe. While the launch date sounds reasonable, I’m not too sure about the 17 hour video playback. It sounds more like something a company claims their device can do under optimal conditions, yet no one can ever reproduce. I’m certainly hoping it’s true though, and can’t wait to find out if it is. Battery life on the S6 was a huge disappointment last year.
