Rumors have been circulating around the Internet about Samsung's Galaxy S7, saying there's more than just one build. If they hold true, we might see three variants of the Android-powered smartphone soon.
Just recently, Samsung launched its Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, making three different models for the sixth-generation Galaxy. People believe that the S7 rumors are probable because it seems that Samsung is banking on the number 3. Third time's the charm, right?
Assuming that the alleged news is true, the Samsung Galaxy S7 won't come in different designs or appearances, but rather with three different chipsets. The S7 is said to have a particular processor depending on the region where it's sold.
First, it seems that the upcoming flagship will continue to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820, which is said to be shipped to the U.S. and Chinese markets for the S7's release.
Second, it is said that the S7 that'll hit the shelves in the Japanese, Korean and European markets will be sporting Samsung's in-house processor Exynos 8890.
Lastly, the S7 is reported to be fitted with Exynos 7422 for the Indian market. This in-house chip was said to power the Note 5 before, but those rumors were put to rest when the device went official with an Exynos 7420 in August 2015.
Just like with the S6 series, some say that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will come in 5.1- and 5.7-inch variants.
Plenty of other rumors surrounding Samsung's latest flagship have been stirring up Galaxy fans as well. According to them, the S7 will be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and that it will be available in February 2016.
Take note that these are only rumors and speculations that eager fans may have made up – not to mention that the S7 won't be released anytime soon – which means that the hardware will likely be up for modification. But if all of them are true, we will get full details about the Samsung Galaxy S7 in January 2016 and get our hands on them the following month.
