Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S7 on February 21st


I’m sure we’ve all heard about Samsung’s struggles in the smartphone market by now, and it’s going to be interesting to see how the company tries to turn things around this year. Naturally, that turnaround will be centered around the Galaxy S7 and its derivatives, and from the rumors we’ve heard over the last several months, Samsung will be making some big changes with this iteration of its flagship series in order to draw people’s interest. That includes adding features that users have wanted for years and improving its notoriously weak software, but this is all based on rumors, and we won’t have anything official until Samsung unveils the device on February 21st.

Folks, it’s set in stone: the Galaxy S7 is launching on Sunday, February 21, 2016. Samsung sent out invites to members of the press for its February 21 Unpacked 2016 event and there’s no doubt that we will get to see the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The event will start at 7PM Barcelona time, on the same day LG plans to take the veils off its G5, ahead of MWC 2016. Two top Android flagships in one day, and Android Authority will be there to cover them both in detail. While the invite itself is rather cryptic, Samsung put out a short teaser clip featuring its Gear VR headset. It’s possible that virtual reality will be incorporated somehow in the launch or that Samsung is preparing an announcement on this front. No teasers yet about the Galaxy S7, but thanks to the rumor mill, we have a good idea of what to expect. Full details are available in our rumor roundup linked above, but at least in terms of design you should expect something very similar to the Galaxy S6, with an all-black version to spice it up. As for the actual Galaxy S7 release date, March 11 is when the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be available in stores in the US and Europe, and presumably more markets from around the world. That’s according to reports by @evleaks and assuming that everything goes to plan.
