Rumor has surfaced this week saying that Samsung is planning to release three variants of Samsung Galaxy 7. It can be recalled that Samsung has just launched the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. The sixth-generation smartphone has three variants also so it is not surprising that the company’s upcoming smartphone will have three models.
“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,” a report from Tech Times said.
It was also reported that Samsung Galaxy S7 will be available in various countries such as Japan, Korea and Europe and it will be powered with Samsung’s in-house processor Exynos 8890. Another variant of Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to be powered with Exynos 7422 that will be released for 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,” the report added.
Industry experts speculate that Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to be pre-installed with Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow and it will be available in February 2016. However, all these speculation should be taken with a “grain of salt” unless Samsung will confirm all of these by issuing an official statement.
