Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, Price rumours & Specs: January Release confirmed

One of the things that's generally not difficult to estimate about an upcoming smartphone is its launching date, with a yearly release program being stuck to by the majority of makers. Based on a rumour reported by ETNews is that the brand new phone's launch date wills move to January 2016, only after the CES show in Las Vegas.

The big question, of course, is why?

There are a few possible reasons. This could give some additional attention to Samsung and would put both handsets nearer together regarding performance. Second, it would expand the gap between the S7's start and also the iPhone 7's start, time that would give Samsung a bit more focus. Naturally , this is only conjecture at this point and Samsung may have a few other valid reasons for shifting its launch schedule. As I have an eye, I will keep it on the specific situation and bring you more information.

Samsung Galaxy S7: Release date


An annual launch schedule plus preceding kind would indicate that we can anticipate the phone to really go on sale in April 2016. It's difficult to place an exact date on matters, as shipment dates are able to go by a couple of weeks, but pencil in the very first number of weeks of April as the most likely. Nevertheless, we ought to see the phone before that, as Samsung announces its new Galaxy mobiles at MWC in Barcelona, which runs between 22-25th February next year.

The single drawback to this theory is how the Galaxy Note 5 launching was handled by Samsung earlier this year. In previous years, the Note was constantly found at the beginning of September at the IFA show in Berlin, but for the fifth iteration Samsung held a separate occasion and declared a month early, towards the start of August. This was partly to the Note 5 not coming to Europe (at least at first), but nevertheless, it might be a signal the company wants to distance itself from launching products on its own terms and trade shows. We'll know for sure early next year as to if Samsung will do its own thing, or whether MWC will indeed be the Samsung Galaxy S7

Galaxy S7 Design

To be honest, I am not anticipating many changes on the plan front from the Galaxy S7 and expect it to appear much like the existing Galaxy S6. Samsung's just gone through a substantial redesign phase and it makes sense for the business to work with what it is got at the minute, rather than altering things completely.

The only matter actually up in the air is whether there'll be a level Galaxy S7 and the curved-border Galaxy S7 Edge, or simply the latter model. Total sales, manufacturing costs and yields on the curved display are likely to dictate that answer, but we're too far away to possess responses at the moment.

One thing that might make the reduction, however, is a glass panel that is newer, more powerful. Korean website KBench has allegedly seen a logo request from Samsung filling for a new type of glass cover called Turtle Glass, which is supposed to be even more sturdy than Corning's Gorilla Glass, which is currently used on the S6 and many other top end smartphones. has additionally reported that the S7 might be in line to use a fresh magnesium-based alloy chassis to strengthen it further, possibly leading to better heat dissipation along with a lighter phone overall.

Either way, it seems like durability is going to be one of the key focus areas of Samsung for the S7 next year, no doubt in an effort to one-up Apple's iPhone 6S which uses the exact same form of aluminium that you will find in airplanes. Overall, though, the S6's build quality was superb, although various review samples I have had in have almost all come with cracked back panels, so there is definitely room for advancement. A stronger kind of glass would definitely be welcome, but we probably won't know until early next year for sure.

Galaxy S7 Display:

The actual question is, will Samsung go for a complete 4K (3,840x2,160) resolution for its next cellphone. It certainly has the technology to do so, but it is difficult to envision what the advantages are. At this screen size, the additional resolution will not be that noticeable, but the screen will draw more electricity and affect battery life.

Sony has just established the Xperia Z5 Premium, but based on an early hands on it's very hard to spot any real difference between 4K and 1440p in a handheld device. The Z5 Premium doesn't even render at 4K resolution most of the time anyway, so you just really get the advantage in photos and video. I believe we're going to need to wait a little longer to answer this question, but Samsung is nearly definitely keeping a close eye on the prevalence of the Sony handset. The upcoming 
Sony Xperia Z6 is also rumored to have a 4K display with 4096 X 2160 pixel resolution.

Another handset Samsung will without doubt be observing is the iPhone 6S, as it is recently been reported on Chinese social media website Weibo that it may be developing press-sensitive displays much like the 3D Touch panels of Apple. The report says it might use Synaptics' new ClearForce technology to let users bring additional choices on the monitor up.

Central Processing Unit

Although it's early days yet, it seems like Samsung will be making it doubly hard to pin down a chip for the S7, as the most recent rumours appear to indicate there will be three different editions of the cellphone when it starts next year and all of them will be using another type of chipset.

Those in the US or China will get an S7 with a 
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.
