Samsung plans to release Galaxy S7 earlier than anticipated According to Korean sources, Samsung plans to move the release of its flagship model, Samsung Galaxy S7 to happen couple of weeks before the MWC event where it has traditionally released its flagship models.
The move indicates that Samsung doesn't want to compete for the media attention during the MWC expo where several vendors release their products.

More interestingly, according to SamMobile, Samsung might be changing its flagship model tactic to have "super premium", "premium" and "sub-premium" flagship models in order to be able to compete against the iPhone (super premium) and against newcomers, like OnePlus and Xiaomi (premium & sub-premium).

Perhaps it'll include a groundbreaking increase of processor clock speed from 2.5GHz to 2.6 and slap another incremented Galaxy # on it.

Samsung's products are so milled. The S6 is kinda nice but that's it.........and Android sucks!

I'd take 2.5Ghz to 2.6Ghz in a S7 as long as they put a damn micro SD card support back in it.
Samsung don't seem to realise, many people don't want to stream their music or vids from the cloud and use up bandwidth, especially people on crappy data plans.
Plus, I travel overseas often so I don't always have internet, I really need a good size SD card to carry around all my music library.

Agree 100%. Samsung should really put back micro sd support in their cell phones. That has been the primary block to my upgrading to the S6.
