Exclusive: Samsung begins firmware development for the Galaxy S7


Last updated: November 11th, 2015 at 12:54 UTC+02:00

It’s no secret that Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S7 early next year but for now there’s no confirmation from the company about what we can expect from its next flagship handset. Sure enough there have been countless rumors and reports about the features and specifications of the Galaxy S7, and we’re bound to get more of those before the handset arrives. Some believe that the Galaxy S7 may arrive a bit earlier than usual next year and the information we have for you today does line up nicely with that belief.

Our insiders tell us that Samsung has started developing firmware for the Galaxy S7, work has begun a month earlier than it did for the Galaxy S6 last year, which could be a major indication that Samsung might unveil the Galaxy S7 in February 2016, perhaps at the Mobile World Congress 2016 which takes place in the same month. There have been reports about two variants of the Galaxy S7 and this confirms that there will be flat and curved models like the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Development on G930FXXU0AOK6 and G935FXXU0AOK6 has begun this month and could very well mean that the Galaxy S7 may arrive a bit early next year.
