Starting to look like a Friday, March 11th Galaxy release in the U.S.

This would be almost exactly one month ahead of the release of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge last year, but would align well for an announcement of the smartphones at Mobile World Congress at the end of February. We haven’t seen anything from Samsung on an Unpacked event for MWC this year, but they often wait until early February to send out invitations.
We have covered the rumored specs on these devices a few times now, but here’s a quick refresher on the latest. The screens of course are the big point of differentiation between the two with a 5.1-inch flat screen on the S7 and a 5.5-inch curved display for the edge. Battery capacity will also differ between the two with 3000 mAh for the S7 and 3600 in the larger S7 edge.
The rest of the specs should match up for both phones:
- Samsung Exynos 8 8890 overseas and Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 in the U.S.
- 4GB RAM
- 32/64GB ROM
- 12MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture
We’ll be there at MWC next month assuming that is where Samsung decides to take the wraps off the newest Galaxy devices.
Have any of you been holding out for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge? Is there anything in particular you are hoping to see out of them before you pull the trigger?
