For the past few weeks it has been rumored multiple times that Samsung is going to unveil the Galaxy S7 ahead of schedule, but according to a latest tweet from a tipster that has been right many times in the past, there is no truth to these reports of an early launch. According to the tipster the Galaxy S7 is going to be unveiled at Galaxy Unpacked 2016 which is said to be set for February 21, 2016.
In the past Samsung has unveiled its Galaxy S series handsets a day before Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona and this timeframe is no different. Next year Mobile World Congress takes place February 22 through February 25, so scheduling Galaxy Unpacked 2016 for February 21 makes perfect sense, it won't surprise anybody. What this means is that Samsung isn't going to unveil the Galaxy S7 ahead of schedule as some have been claiming, it's going to stick with its tradition of unveiling the device a day before MWC kicks off, it just so happens that MWC is going to take place in February next year. Take this rumor with a grain of salt for now though since there's no confirmation from the company regarding Galaxy Unpacked 2016 just yet.
