Samsung is scheduled to unveil the Samsung Galaxy S7, its latest flagship mobile in Barcelona, Spain, at the Mobile World Congress on February 21, as reported by CNET.
In this regard, there are a number of Samsung latest news that said invitations were already issued by the company to what it called an 'Unpacked' event. Launch of the Galaxy S7 is set at 7 p.m. CET which is the eve of this year's annual mobile trade conference.
Samsung did not explicitly state that it will be unveiling its Galaxy S7, but a number of industry observers such as The Verge and CNET believe that the unpacking of the current upgrade S7 will be the Samsung latest news.
But Samsung fans need not wait till the third week of February to get a peek of what the new upgrade is like. A report said that the Samsung S7 may be equipped with a micro SD slot. This feature is popular among Android users in the past but was not included in Samsung's latest models.
There are also rumors that the mobile giant will go for the Edge configuration similar to the standard GS7 models, and also a possible 5.5 inch S7 Edge model together with a 5.1 inch flat unit.
In this regard, tech experts believe that the new S7 will come in two variants, a straight-edged model and a curved one. It will have a larger screen than the Galaxy S6, will be cheaper as well and also waterproof just like the S5.
Based on the Samsung renderings that came out, Samsung fans can expect micro USB charging ports. That means all the past cords will still be used for at least one more year. However, the unit will not have a USB Type C which is found on the Nexus 5X and 6P.
Some Samsung latest news also talks about the S7 being equipped with retina-scanning technology along with a 3D Touch feature.
