It’s been a while since the Galaxy S6 came out and its almost time for the next big thing: the Galaxy S7. While rumors and leaks come out every once in a while before the product actually gets launched, the situation usually heats up when the actual announcement is only two to three weeks away. And we get to see an image of the phone which is pretty much the one being announced, which really makes me think if Samsung actually facilitates these leaks, just to raise the hype. Now, we have already covered all the leaks that have come out in the past few weeks and if you want to learn more about them, be sure to click and check them out as we do a rumor round up right here in this article.

Release Date
The Galaxy S7 will be officially launched in MWC and will by available by 11th March

Force Sensing Technology
Apple announced the revolutionary 3D Touch last year with their iPhones and right then, I knew Samsung wouldn’t let go off the opportunity to implement a similar technology into their upcoming devices. Synapctics recently announced its ClearForce force sensing technology which is kind of similar to the 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus and according to rumors, it is likely to be implemented on the Galaxy S7 as a competitor to Apple’s 3D Touch. Be sure to check out our writeup on the ClearForce if you’re interested.

Hardware and Specs
The device is expected to come in Silver, Gold, White and an ‘All-Black’ version with similar glass and metal design as with the Galaxy S6. Unlike the S6, it is also expected to ship with IP67 certified water and dust-resistance capabilities.
About a month ago, we got yet another leak regarding some general information about the device including its Display, Camera, Battery and the internals. We’ve learned that the screen will supposedly remain the same  with  5.1 inches diagonally in size along with a 1440p display. The camera in the other hand is rumored to get a downgrade in terms of mega-pixels; but that’s not a huge deal at all, megapixels isn’t the only thing that makes for a good camera but its also the lens aperture that creates a difference. With a f/1.7 aperture and 12 MP shots, this phone would do an excellent job in low-light situations.  The S7 is also rumored to have a 3000 mAh of battery followed by a larger capacity on the S7 edge. To power up all these specs, the Exynos 8 Octa 8890 is promised to be stuffed in to the device on Korean models and the Snapdragon 820 SoC in the North American variant along with 4 GB RAM and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage on either models while a SD card slot is still unconfirmed as of now.

Software
We can all agree that the software is one of the key factors we decide to buy a phone. You may want to buy the Note 5 for its note-taking friendly software while you may prefer the Nexus 6P  for its latest stock software and updates. The Galaxy S7 is likely to be shipped with Android Marshmallow and with similar clean Touchwiz skin like in Android Lollipop.

Most interesting: Leaked Images
In the past few months, we’ve seen lots and lots of leaked images of the Galaxy S7. Here are a few of them that we found really genuine and likely to be the final version of the phone that’s getting announced soon.
We found this leaked image a few weeks ago which shows the possible design of the Galaxy S7. It looks quite similar to previous models but the upper and lower bezels look really thick and the home button seems a little bit tilted so we’re not sure how reliable this image is.

The second image from the same source shows a bunch of camera modules for the Galaxy S7. The only notable information we could get out of it is the model number of the device (SM-G930F).

Both these images doesn’t give us much information about the Samsung Galaxy S7, but just a day ago, we got some interesting images of the phone in hands of an actual person.
The first image from Reviewdao really shows off the back of the device. Aside from the curve reminiscing that of the Galaxy Note 5, you can see that the camera sensor is largely chopped off with a slimmer form factor, possibly due to the reduction in megapixels. And oh, that apple back there. Yum!

The next picture shows off the front and edged sides of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This image was posted by Weibo user JKwan who was able to download a benchmarking app, which shows some details about the phone including the Model Number (SM-G9350) which has been mentioned couple of times earlier as a model number of a variant of the Galaxy S7 Edge.

What do you think will be the best feature on the Galaxy S7? Is it the ClearForce, the new camera, or the blazing benchmark score of 134,704?
