For a long time now rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S7 set to arrive in two different sizes have been doing the rounds. Recent reports are confirming that this may indeed be the case where fans will witness the launch of two Galaxy S7 variants.
SamsungViet, a Vietnam-based website, had reported back in October that the Galaxy S7 lineup will feature two models with a 5.2-inch display and a 5.7-inch display. However, a current report on South Korea’s Electronic Times confirms that Samsung’s upcoming flagship will arrive in two models, with one sporting a 5.2-inch screen, while the other boasting a 5.5-inch Edge screen.
As per the report on Electronic Times, about 5 million Galaxy S7 units will be produced out of which 3.3 million will be the 5.2-inch versions, while the rest would be the 5.5-inch Edge models. The report also suggests that the flagship device will hit mass production in February. This sits perfectly well with the predictions about the handset’s launch date. As noted by TechRadar, Samsung fans may see the Galaxy S7 being unveiled between 22-25 February at the MWC 2016 to be held in Barcelona.
This won’t be the first time that the Korean tech company will be launching a flagship at the MWC. However if it does decide to pull-off the launch as it did for the Galaxy S6 series, then the upcoming lineup may be unveiled a day before MWC 2016 kicks-off.
Other predictions hint at the Galaxy S7 arriving with two different processors: Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 and Samsung’s own Exynos chip. The lineup featuring the Snapdragon 820 processor will retail in the U.S., while the variants with Exynos chip would ship in Asia. As tech aficionados may be aware, take the rumors with a slight pinch of salt.
