The Samsung Galaxy S7 will be present on the shelves of the shops next spring. The operator China Mobile confirmed the information during a press conference. It will therefore certainly made official on the sidelines of Mobile World Congress.
We cannot trust anyone! Samsung has again to experience: during his last press conference followed by a Weibo user, the operator China Mobile has unveiled the release date of the next flagship of the Korean group, the Galaxy S7. The smartphone will be on Chinese stalls next March, as announced various rumors also claimed that the formalization would be scheduled for the end of February, that is, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. If this makes sense, since Samsung also took the last editions of the annual meeting of Catalan mobile to unveil its Galaxy Sx, it is always good to have confirmation from an operator.
In his presentation, China Mobile puts the Galaxy S7 in the premium range, the one above the 3,000 yuan (430 euros). The same month, on the section just below (1500 to 3000 yuan), the operator laces three other smartphones: Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7, and the Huawei P9. Here, again, it’s formalization early. Like what, China Mobile makes no preference when it comes to announcing the commercial release of a phone before it was formalized by the manufacturer! Note that placing the P9 and S7 face to face is not trivial. And it shows how Huawei is positioned facing Samsung in its negotiations with operators.
The Galaxy S7 will be the next flagship of the Korean brand by early next year. According to the rumors and indiscretions, it should be equipped with a Super AMOLED Quad HD screen 5.1 or 5.2 inches (maybe ClearForce compliant), the Snapdragon 820 (it would even be the first to dispose) or an Exynos 8890 (by region), 4GB of RAM, a Britecell 20 megapixel camera sensor at the front, a Isocell webcam at the rear, a magnesium chassis, a new hi-fi audio chipset, a port USB Type-C and Android dressed Touchwiz (certainly with some small changes). Confirmation of all this, and more, in two months.
