Popular case maker Spigen has jumped the gun on the big reveal Samsung’s been plotting for the Mobile World Congress 2016. Photos of the Samsung Galaxy S7 as well as the S7 Plus, S7 Edge and S7 Edge Plus (as they’ve been named) in various protective covers have emerged on Amazon along with prices for each accessory.
Additionally, Spigen says that the cases will be in stock on Amazon by April 1. This means the Samsung Galaxy S7 series could indeed be launched as early as March. The MWC 2016 is scheduled for February 22 to 25 in Barcelona, Spain. The flagship lineup is likely to be unveiled a day or two before the event.
Samsung has stuck with the same pattern of revealing its Galaxy S handsets before the MWC each year, after all. As for the Spigen leak (seen on Phone Arena), the case manufacturer is alternately thought to be using renders of the Galaxy S6 instead of the S7. It confirms that the upcoming series hasn’t received a major redesign.
On top of that, it looks like we will be seeing four new high-end Galaxy devices soon – the Galaxy S7, S7 Plus, S7 Edge and S7 Edge Plus. The only minor difference we can spot between the current S6 and the S7 models shown by Spigen on Amazon is the slightly taller and curvier home button below the screen.
Those who’ve been expecting another mind-blowing update in terms of design, on a level similar to what the Galaxy S7 Edge offered, might be disappointed. But let’s hope Samsung has at least upped the game with regards to the specs sheet. Many are hoping for the return of the much loved microSD card slot.
As for what not to wish for on any of the Samsung Galaxy S7 handsets, a recent leak says they won’t sport a USB Type-C port or a higher resolution camera. The good news is that the rumored 12MP lens used might be better at clicking low light images.
