Samsung’s Next Big Thing is coming very soon, more specifically tomorrow February 21st at 1PM EST. The company is set to unveil the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at their event tomorrow. Like with most announcements, there have been plenty of leaks about the device and we have pretty solid idea of what is coming tomorrow.
Evan Blass, otherwise known as @Evleaks, has a very unique skill of leaking out devices and he is usually right. Over the past few days, he has posted several images of the S7 and S7 Edge. Last year the company showed off the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, it seems that they will be sticking with this tiered approach. Tomorrow, Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge; although if you are familiar with the S6 they might look pretty similar.
Samsung has apparently opted not go with a full redesign, but instead do some updates to the hardware. Along with the silver and gold options we saw for the S6, the S7 will be adding a black color option. For the S7 it will keep a 5.1-inch size display with a slightly different design. The S7 Edge will most likely have a larger 5.5-inch display with the unique curved sides. As the S7 Edge is a bigger device, Samsung will be fixing some of the ergonomic issues that arise when you have a bigger device. This is something they did not really account for on the S6 Edge.
As always, Samsung will do some hardware improvements like a better Super AMOLED display, a bigger battery, and a faster processor. The biggest and best rumors that is out there would have to be water resistance and the return of the microSD card slot.
It seems that 7 will not come with big changes, instead they will be adding in some nice speed boosts and finally giving customers expandable storage again. Most likely we will see the announcement tomorrow and a full launch for the device in March of this year. It is expected that both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be landing on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon in the United States.
