Smartphone manufacturers are creatures of habit, and Samsung is no exception, right?
Samsung could mix its release schedule up this year with an early launch for the company’s next flagship smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 has been tipped to go on sale in stores on Friday, March 11, which is earlier than usual.
Here are recent Samsung Galaxy smartphone launch dates:
- Samsung Galaxy S6 – April 10
- Samsung Galaxy S5 – April 11
- Samsung Galaxy S4 – April 27
The supposed date is being peddled by prolific leaker Evleaks – a.k.a VentureBeat’s Evan Blass – who tweeted the following:

But why would Samsung opt for an earlier launch? The answer could lie in Mobile World Congress.
This year’s MWC tradeshow is being held in February, and is a likely launch-pad for the Galaxy S7.
However, usually MWC is held in March, which could explain why the on-sale date may be pushed forward.
Of course, Samsung has yet to reveal any concrete information about the Galaxy S7, so take this report with a pinch of salt.
