Meanwhile, there’s also a tweet teased by a tech journalist Anooni Monaco suggesting that the Galaxy A series might have fingerprint scanners. Whether this is true or not, Samsung has been implementing a fingerprint scanner at the home button lately anyway.
Additionally, there are also unofficial Samsung Galaxy S7 image leaks showing us how the body looks like. The normal Galaxy S7 is said to have a flat 5.2-inch screen, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a 5.7-inch display. Both will have curved glass on the top and bottom but the latter will have curved sides. The S7 and S7 Edge are expected to equip the Exynos 8 Octa or Snapdragon 820 chipsets, 4GB of RAM and a speculated 20 MP BRITECELL camera on the back, with a USD Type-C connector.
As always with such rumours, do take them with a healthy pinch of salt. No Malaysia release dates but we should know more in the next couple of months. Till then, stay tuned.
