Every year, we see reports, rumors, and leaks claiming that they know when Samsung will announce the newest flagship device. Like clockwork, it seems that each year before CES arrives, reports surface claiming Samsung will introduce a new Galaxy device in January at the annual tech show in Las Vegas, Nevada, but it never happens. This week, a new report has surfaced that states we will see the Galaxy S7 announced on January 19, which is about a week and a half after CES.
This is not the first report to claim the next Galaxy is coming in January, as past reports have stated that Samsung intends to launch the device in early February across the globe. If true, mid January for the announcement is quite early compared to the MWC timeframe we have seen in past years for Galaxy devices, but it would not completely shock us.
The Galaxy S6 was launched only this past April, which really was not all that long ago. It is still considered to be a top option among new Android smartphone buyers. However, if Samsung goes through with announcing and releasing the Galaxy S7 in early 2016, you may want to hold off on purchasing the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge. Reports of patent filings and trademarks state that Samsung is working on something quite special for the Galaxy S7, including what could be a display that rivals Apple’s 3D Touch found on the iPhone 6S.
Looking at the calendar, we are merely months away from January, so who knows.
