The buzz created by Samsung Galaxy S6 is no more; speculations have already hit the web-space suggesting what we can expect from Samsung’s next flagship.
Some guys are already claiming that the so-called Galaxy S7 would be released earlier than expected. They based their reason on the poor sales of the Samsung Galaxy S6.
Sales of Samsung Galaxy S6 didn’t meet company’s forecast. Samsung is said to be struggling with Apple in the U.S and Xiaomi in China. It reported its seventh consecutive quarterly loss in July 2015.
Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5 reportedly hit the 10 million sales mark faster than the Galaxy S6. Although, the S6 didn’t meet company’s expectations, it is said that the S6 Edge variant has been selling like hot-cakes and it was initially difficult for Samsung to keep up with demand.
Samsung will most likely follow its launch sequence of the Galaxy range of smartphones. Samsung will bring the so-called Galaxy S7 to the 2016 Mobile Word Congress in February. An official release date will follow during or after the event.
A source from Korea doesn’t agree with us, they claim the Galaxy S7 will launch in January 2016. Another rumor suggests a December release date. We are in December already and this doesn’t seem likely.
Evleaks, our popular leakster believes the Samsung Galaxy S7 will launch in the first quarter of 2016, he claims AT&T are already testing both variant of the mobile device, SM-G930A and -G935A.
Samsung is said to be seriously considering making the Galaxy S7 cheaper than the Galaxy S6 as it continues to get wimped by Apple and Xiaomi.
We will let this one slip for now, and update it when we have something really concrete to support such. But we expect the Galaxy S7 to slide into a price range of $800-$900.

According to a Korean report, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will look like its processor. The report claims the upcoming Samsung smartphones will retain the same metal and glass design that rocked the Galaxy S6.

Just like the rumored specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 5 screen technologywhich is said to mimic the 3D Touch of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus with Synaptics’ ClearFore technology, Samsung will likely join Xioami with the recent technology.
Speculations also suggest that the so-called Galaxy S7 is the much talked about Project Valley, the smartphone with a foldable display.

Samsung Galaxy S7 is said to feature the same 23MP camera that’s rocking the Xperia Z5 line-up.
Other things worthy of mention include the possibility of the device featuring a USB Type-C port. The Galaxy S7 line-up will feature Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and could be released in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB models.
