The battle for tech company supremacy continues with Samsung trying to get ahead of the competition against its toughest competitor, Apple, by releasing its Galaxy S7 just after 2015 wraps up this December.
The successor to the Galaxy S6 smartphone, which was introduced into the market this March, is rumored to be getting the early bird treatment by unveiling it in January and making it available in the market weeks after.
According to GSM Arena, Samsung has already planned this early release ahead of time, with the S7 reportedly finalized this September.
Android Authority even got word from a Korean news outlet called ETNews that the official debut of the Galaxy S7 will be on the 19th of the first month of the year.
The hype over the upcoming flagship device from Samsung began to build up ever since its predecessor in the S line was launched.
As usual, don't expect Samsung's upcoming release to be just a single device. The smartphone is expected to come in a "premium" and "sub-premium" variant.
The premium Galaxy S7 is going to be extra special because its Exynos chipset will house the processor as well as the modem on a single chip.
Additionally, consumers should expect the handsets to have 3D Touch-like features and a USB Type-C port. The dual-arrangement camera is also a big possibility for this device. SamMobile even teased that the primary camera for this device will have 20 megapixels. Other specs and features are still confusing as of the moment.
Though the news about the Galaxy S7's early release seems hard to believe, sources say that this is really possible given that Samsung already released the Galaxy Note 5 earlier than expected. Plus, the Korean tech giant previously confirmed that it has bigger plans for its future devices.
Finally, the debut of the Galaxy S7 is subject to change just like what happened to earlier reports claiming that the device is due to be introduced to the market tis December.
