Samsung Galaxy S7 rumours are already trickling out

Samsung has only just released two new phablets, but the rumour mill is already turning out talk of what’s next.

Several reports on Samsung Galaxy S7 have emerged, providing very early details on what we can expect from the mooted flagship handset.

According to a GForGames article, which cites Korean media sources, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a sizable 5.7-inch display.

That’s up from the 5.1-inch Super AMOLED panel that currently appears on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

The next rumour is that Samsung will introduce a dual-camera set-up – similar to the arrangement used on the HTC One M8 – with the Samsung Galaxy S7.

It’s also reported that the handset will ship with Qualcomm’s upcoming top-end Snapdragon 820 chip on board.

The chip is already being tested by manufacturers, and looks set to appear on devices in early 2016, which gels with this latest rumour.

However, we should note that it’s also suggested that there will be a second variant of the handset, instead set to use Samsung’s rumoured Exynos M1 chipset.

That fits with Samsung’s 2015 smartphone strategy, which saw the firm eschew Qualcomm chips for processors built in-house.

The final titbit from this latest report is that Samsung will unveil the device in February, which is a little earlier than usual for the company.

Of course, it’s still early days and it’s likely Samsung’s plans aren’t finalised just yet. Stay tuned.

Whatever the case, the smartphone is set to face stiff competition from Apple’s newly announced handsets, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
