The Samsung Galaxy S7 will be finally launched in February 2016, going by the new report gathered from South Korea – the home market of Samsung. The report added that the two Galaxy S7 versions will arrive with support for LTE Cat. 12.
We have heard in the past few months that Samsung is planning to unveil the Samsung Galaxy S7 in early 2016. This new report confirmed that the phone will actually launch in February, even though the preceding report opined that January is the launch date. This new launch date was from sources from within Samsung.
It is noteworthy that a January launching and February unveil would make a lot of sense, particularly now that an inconsistency is actually noticed between the two rumors gathered. It was observed however that Samsung launched Galaxy Note 5 earlier than envisaged in this past summer, beating a lot of competitors to the market, including iPhone 6S. It looks as if Samsung is planning to reiterate the move with the impending Galaxy S7.
Another frequent great idea in the sea of Galaxy S7 is the fact that the new phone will arrive in two versions – One with Exynos 8890 (M1) SoC from Samsung and the other one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset being made by Samsung itself. The two Samsung Galaxy S7 versions will support LTE Cat12 speeds, according to this new report. However, this is the very first time we are hearing about the Exynos 8890 being fixed with the same radio, while it was earlier known that the Snapdragon will incorporate an LTE Cat 12 modem.
