Samsung Galaxy S7 Rumored to Come Out Before the End of the Year to Capitalize on the Holidays

Samsung has been doing everything it can to make the details of its upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 be the company’s best-kept secrets. And it seems like the company is doing a great job at it thus far. Although the Korean tech giant has not made its official announcement yet on the device, it is expected that the latest iteration to its Galaxy S series would continue. There are even reports going around now that the Samsung Galaxy S7 would be release before the end of this year, contrary to its usual first quarter of the year release schedule.

Rumors are rife about the market availability, specs and, of course, how much the Samsung Galaxy S7 will cost when the expected high-end smartphone comes out in the retail markets. According to Value Walk, the upcoming offering from Samsung is currently under the codename “Jungfrau” and is set to be released by December this year to allow a boost in sales in time for the Holiday season.

Considering that its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, have only been released to the markets in April this year after its official launch in March, this is a rare strategy for Samsung to deviate from its usual one-year market cycle for its flagship devices.

However, Latinos Post reports that the upcoming flagship smartphone from Samsung will probably be launched sometime in February 2016 during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. Trusted Reviews, on the other hand, predicts that the tech manufacturer will debut the device sometime in April 2016, exactly a year after the release of Samsung’s current flagship smartphones.

There are also reports that the Galaxy S7 will mirror the Galaxy S6’s sleek and sophisticated design as a lot of users have praised the current model’s classy appearance, its improved display, visuals, security features, speed, and better processing power.

According to Venture Capital Post, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is to sport a 30-megapixel rear camera and a 10-megapixel front snapper. Additionally, it is expected to boast of a 4GB of RAM with options for 32GB, 64GB and 128 GB of expandable internal storage. Samsung will reportedly retain the features on their previous Galaxy S series models such as the fingerprint scanner, heart rate monitor, and IR blaster for controlling other devices to its upcoming flagship smartphone.

Some reports claim that the upcoming gadget, just like the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, will reportedly be running on a 64-bit Exynos 3.5 processor. While some say it will come out running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor just like the company’s 2014’s flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5. Tech Times, however, believes that the team behind the Samsung Galaxy S7 is testing two processors on the device, but the exact version of the chip to be used has yet to be confirmed.

Market analysts are having a hard time figuring out why the company would even decide to go back to using Snapdragon processors especially with its overheating issues but ET News claims that Samsung is probably just testing which processor would be the best fit for its upcoming flagship smartphone. No official word yet if Samsung will follow its pattern of releasing two variants by coming up with a Galaxy S7 and a Galaxy S7 Edge.

There are also speculations that the Samung Galaxy S7 will featue a 4K Super AMOLED display. If this is true, then the budding technology of 4K resolution is bound to be a mainstream feature of future electronic devices as predicted by analysts. The smartphone is also speculated to carry a 5G mobile network for a better, if not the best, browsing experience to its users.

Known as one of the top competitors and a leading brand when it comes to mobile handsets, Samsung is really pressuring its biggest rival, Apple, to get their game on and create an exceptional follow up to their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus lines. And if persistent rumors about the latest Samsung phone does not threaten Apple yet, the Galaxy S7 is rumored to come out with a retail price range from $750 to $850 with the bump in the price apparently due to the enhanced specifications and the Edge-type display.

  1. I cant see the Samsung s7 worrying to much. The iphone 6 of 2015 still has a 750 p screen and old tech specs compared to the s6 now.
