With a rumored release date for the Samsung Galaxy S7 not far off, we’ve been counting the days until Samsung officially pulls back the curtain and reveals what’s in store. A new teaser clip released by the South Korean company has now confirmed that the Galaxy S7 will be unveiled February 21 at the annual Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, Spain.
Aside from the official unveiling date, Samsung’s announcement gives us no real details about a phone which we currently know very little about. The image of a man wearing a Samsung Gear VR headset however, could be a hint that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be equipped with some virtual reality features. There have also been rumors of the phone having a touchscreen that detects particularly faint touches and a Wall Street Journal report that alludes to fast-charging capabilities. Lastly, another potential upgrade that the S7 could introduce is the Britecell camera sensor.
Few would dispute that the Samsung Galaxy S6 has proven to be a standout smartphone, and one of the company’s best to date. With a potential reveal of the next iPhone happening as early as March, Samsung is looking to keep the Galaxy line on the up and up with a strong model that can give the iPhone a run for its money.
Along with the new Galaxy S7, Samsung may also have another card to play in order to stay competitive in 2017. The company is rumored to be launching a phone upgrade program that’s comparable to the one Apple debuted last year.[Android Central]
