The next Galaxy smartphone is likely to be the long-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. The video also includes an image of a partially opened box with two glowing edges forming a '7'. Also shown is the company's Samsung VR headset indicating there might be some news on that front as well.

Until now, it has been tipped that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch QHD display, 12-megapixel rear camera; 5-megapixel front-facing camera; 64GB inbuilt storage; 4GB of RAM, and Snapdragon 820 processor, which are in-line with an earlier report.

The company is also expected to launch the smartphones with the Exynos 8890 SoC in some regions. Latest reports add that the handset will be able to run 17 hours of video playback at full brightness, suggesting an impressive battery life. The Galaxy S7 Edge is said to feature a larger 5.5-inch display.
