As expected, Samsung will unveil the next Galaxy device during its ‘Unpacked’ keynote on February 21st.

Samsung has released the first of what will surely end up being many teasers, announcing on several social channels that ‘The Next Galaxy’ will be revealed in three weeks. The event is set to be live streamed through its site, which takes place during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at 7:00 p.m. CET (1:00pm ET) on the February 21st.

It’s expected that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. On Friday, press images surfaced showing the possible design of the upcoming flagship smartphones, with specs tipped to include Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 processor, a microSD slot, USB-C, and water resistance.

Early rumours suggest both smartphones will release on on March 11th.

    I like that the video showed the Gear VR, does that mean that 4K screens for improved VR performance are on tap? They also need heat sinks installed to deal with the “VR needs to cool down” pop up you get when pushing the phone hard, otherwise the Gear VR is very cool !

    Can’t wait the last s6 was an awesome phone but screen size is a deal breaker for me. Maybe they should drop a S7 edge + instead of just the S7 edge

  • zanzee

    This is your last chance with me. My Note 3 is getting old and I need a replacement.

    • Nadefrenzy

      I’m in the same boat. Probably going to wait for the Note 6 though.

    When is Samsung going to unveil marshmallow for S6 is what I would like to know.

      It’s due out this month for the Note 5, GS6 and most recent edge versions. March for the Galaxy S5 , Note 4 etc.

    Rethink what a phone can do? I think we’ve already done that with the alien concept of “phone calls”, whatever those are.

    Making my S5 feel like it’s an antique already. Oddly enough, my 2013 Moto X (original) still seems like new today.

    Hopefully they upgraded the display. We run these phones 24/7 on a demo loop and the S6, S6 Edge out of all phones are the only ones to have the pixels burnt into the screen. The Note 5 hasn’t done it surprisingly. Also they are the only ones that freeze, I have to physically restart them about once per week. Could be a lemon, however it effected the Edge + and the Note 4 Edge displays as well. Every other phone is perfect still, LG, HTC, Blackberry, iPhones etc…

      OLED vs LCD. Big difference. Besides, I don’t think most people have their screens on a vibrant demo for 24 hrs. Still, improvement couldn’t hurt.

    • Longtin

      I’m aware of that , still a concern, also I tend to send out a lot more samsung devices due to technical glitches compared to the others, although I sell a lot more Samsungs.

      S devices are sh*t, but Notes are far more reliable than most other phones, both in my own and other people’s (whom I know) experience.
