Samsung is reportedly working towards its next-gen Galaxy S7 smartphone, which like its predecessor will also come in two variants.

Samsung has a curved model of the Galaxy S7, possibly the Galaxy S7 Edge, and a flat surface one in the works. The smart phones are dubbed 'Hero' and 'Hero 2' and internally codenamed 'Project Lucky'.

The model numbers of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are SM-G930 and SM-G935, respectively.

Samsung is also aiming to possibly bring back one of its much-loved features with the Galaxy S7, the microSD card support, which the company bypassed for the Galaxy S6.

"We have received information that Samsung might have found a way to make microSD card slots work in conjunction with UFS 2.0 storage," notes the publication.

The company is also exploring the possibility of including either a 20MP ISOCELL camera sensor or a dual-lens snapper.

Rumor has it that the Galaxy S7 will be released with two different processors: with Samsung's own Exynos 8890 processor and the much-touted Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. The Galaxy S7 is also anticipated to tout the UFS 2.0 storage, which is added in the current-gen Galaxy S6.

Sources have spilled the beans that Samsung is looking forward to launch both the variants of the Galaxy S7 in the U.S., South Korea, Canada, Europe and China. Conclusively, this is not a complete list of the regions where the new Samsung flagships will release in 2016.

For those wondering which carriers in the U.S. will offer the Galaxy S7 smart phones: Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Cricket and AT&T are apparently on board already.

In Canada, Bell Mobility is pitted to offer the Galaxy S7. The Korean carriers listed are LG Uplus, KT Corporation and SK telecom.

It is anticipated that the Galaxy S7 will be launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February 2017.
