We know the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will be announced in Spain on February 21st, but when will it be released and available to buy?

This year rumor has it that Samsung wants to keep things simple, yet offer their best smartphones yet. The plan is two phones. The Samsung Galaxy S7 with a 5.1-inch display and a similar design as last year, then a bigger 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge. There won’t be a smaller Edge like in 2015, nor a big 5.7-inch model like we saw late last year.

As a result buyers have the choice between a familiar size in the Galaxy S7, featuring a familiar design but improved across the board, or a bigger curved screen with some added features to be unique. Samsung will then save the bigger screen size for the Note 6 and possibly another Galaxy S7 Edge+ or a Galaxy Note 6 Edge later this year. We can’t say for sure though.
