With the Galaxy S7's predecessor, the Galaxy S6 unveiled March 1 this year, just a day before the 2015 MWC opened, a pattern has emerged over Samsung's apparent decision to launch its latest smartphone, with a big press event held on the eve of the MWC 2016 itself.

While previous rumors had pegged the launch at January 2016, with a pair of S7 models to be showcased, the February 21 speculations appear to be holding more water at the moment.

Said to be carrying Sony's IMX300 Xperia Z5 camera, following news Samsung has been in negotiations with the Japanese tech giant, the Galaxy S7 is said to be featuring some major design changes from its predecessor, including a larger 5.7-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD display, and a framework crafted from a magnesium-based alloy for a stronger but lighter body that allows heat to escape despite its processor being hard at work.

According to a report in Tech Radar, the Galaxy S7 is also reported to be a slim smartphone with a glass build, a curved screen, a non-removable battery, and Synaptics' ClearForce touch technology that's similar to the iPhone 6s' 3D Touch.

The Galaxy S7 is expected to be launched with Android Marshmallow out of the box, and with either Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 820 processor or the company's own in-house Exynos M1 SoC.

Apart from supporting a USB Type-C port, the handset will also be sporting a fingerprint scanner, and a rumored microSD card slot, rather than its usual 32GB and 64GB internal memory options.
