Before Samsung could officially announce the Galaxy S7 release details, popular network carrier has jumped the gun by revealing that the 2016 flagship phone would hit stores in China in March.

China Mobile in its annual presentation on company's roadmap for the year 2016 has claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be released in mid-March with a ¥3000 ($/€/Rs.) plus price-tag.

G for Games, which has caught hold of the photo of the conference, clearly shows SGS7 (Samsung Galaxy S7) placed in the March (column) and >¥3000 price (row) slot. Just below the Galaxy S7 slot, recently unveiled 2016 series Galaxy A7 and A5 are also mentioned, thus confirming that Samsung will be rolling out numerous phones in the first quarter of 2016.

We are not sure about the accuracy of the Galaxy S7's price, but the release time-frame is in line with previous reports, which suggested Samsung would hold Galaxy Unpacked event on 21 February, a few days ahead of MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2016 (22-26 February) and release it the following month.

Even this year too, Samsung followed the same release pattern for Galaxy S6 series.

Galaxy S7 is the most anticipated phone of 2016. It is said to boast major upgrades in terms of processor, RAM capacity, camera and other internal hardware.

Expected features of Samsung Galaxy S7:

Samsung Galaxy S7, internally known as Project Lucky, is said to come in two variants -- one featuring the company's proprietary Exynos 8890 Octa-core CPU and another with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor.

The rest of the features are expected to remain same. They are said to flaunt QHD (2560x1440p) display and run on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, 4GB RAM, 64GB inbuilt memory and USC Type-C port.

Galaxy S7 series is also expected to boast an advanced version of 3D Touch feature seen in current Apple iPhone 6S series.
