Samsung has reportedly started testing new generation models of its flagship Galaxy S series smartphones. If the new leak is to be considered, the South Korean tech giant is working on two new Samsung phones with model numbers SM-G930A and SM-G935A, which are likely to be the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Rumor last week suggested that the company is prepping to launch the Galaxy S7 family of smartphone on February 21, just ahead of MWC 2016. Now, prolific leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Twitter has posted that Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge with the model numbers SM-G930A and SM-G935A are already in testing at AT&T. This could mean that Samsung might release these smartphones soon after their announcement.
Samsung already hinted that it will come up with new smartphones. Moreover, considering that CES is scheduled for early January, it seems likely that the company this time might use CES as a platform for its upcoming devices. Earlier, Samsung used Mobile World Congress (MWC) as its launch platform for it smartphones, after months of rumors around them.
As for specifications and features of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy smartphones, there is nothing concrete that is known about the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. However, these phones are likely to be powered by Samsung's brand new Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor. Other specs might include 20MP rear camera, USB Type-C port, and leaner bodies. Considering that Apple came up with force touch screens for new iPhones, Samsung is likely to bring a similar pressure-sensitive touch display on these new phones.
It is also likely that Galaxy S7 could feature a 5.2-inch screen, and the Galaxy S7 edge might have a 5.7-inch or 5.8-inch dual-curve screen.
