On the price leak, the report comes from a Netherlands website and appears to be the same as what Sammobile had reported earlier. Sammobile had said that the 32 GB model of S7 and S7 edge will start at euro 699 and euro 799 respectively with an increase of 70-80 euros for models with higher storage space.
Samsung Galaxy S7 is likely to retain the design of Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but will come with microSD card slot and USB Type-C port. Rumours claims Samsung will also introduce Apple’s Force Touch display in the new phones with pressure-sensitive screens, although not too many details have leaked around this supposed feature.
Samsung S7 is expected to come with two different chipset variants: the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC and its own Exynos chipset.
A new report on 9to5google also claims that Samsung Galaxy S7 will come with a huge 3,600mAh battery. The website also posted a screenshot from the smartphone containing FCC certification id and battery details. The Galaxy S6 had a comparatively smaller battery of 2,550mAh.
Samsung’s ‘The Next Galaxy’ event is happening on February 21 at 1900 CET which translates to 11.30 PM IST.
