Starting with the Galaxy S6, Samsung rethought its smartphones and brought forward beautiful devices with a hugely improved software. The South Korean smartphone giant is expected to announce the Galaxy S7 during the last week of February 2016, and there have been a lot of reports regarding the features of the device. Now, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Galaxy S7 will feature a pressure-sensing display, something similar to the 3D Touch technology used in the recent iPhones.

The publication, which has an excellent track record regarding technology-related reports, states that the Galaxy S7 will also feature USB Type-C port along with fast charging technology, something we reported exclusively long back. Moreover, the report states that the Galaxy 7 will have an improved camera and a design that’s largely similar to the Galaxy S6, but there will be no camera hump on the back. Apparently, “some versions” of the device will also feature a retina scanner, and the device will be announced during MWC 2016, and it will hit the market sometime in mid-March.

Now here’s the exciting bit. The WSJ is also reporting that the variants of the Galaxy S7 with a non-curved display is likely to have expandable storage (yes, a microSD card slot). The Galaxy S7 is expected to feature a pressure-sensing Super AMOLED display, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, an Exynos 8890 processor (or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC in some variants), 4GB RAM, a fingerprint scanner, fast wireless charging, LTE Cat. 12 and USB Type-C connectivity. Are you excited about the Galaxy S7?
