Samsung Galaxy S7 is one of the most-anticipated devices of this year, and the hype around it has gained momentum over the last few weeks with its release date drawing close. Now, it's been reported that the flagship device will hit the stores in the US in March, a couple of weeks after it is unveiled.

The South Korean electronics giant is expected to unveil its next-generation device on 21 February, a day before Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016) begins. The company is also expected to announce two other variants, Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy S7 Edge+, at the event.

Popular leakster Evan Blass ‏@evleaks has claimed the device will be released in the US on 11 March.

However, it appears Samsung Galaxy S7 will not make it to the US market that early, at least if one is to go by past trend. For instance, Samsung unveiled its current flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6, at Mobile World Congress 2015 and released it to the market on 10 April.

It is still not sure when Samsung Galaxy S7 will be released, but its announcement is imminent, as it's been spotted on Zauba, a website that tracks imports and exports in India. The device with model number SM-G930R4 has arrived India for testing along with Galaxy S7 edge (model number SM-G935R4). 

Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to sport a 5.1-inch QHD display with 2560x1440 pixels. Under the hood, it is expected to have Exynos 8890 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor depending on region, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 64GB inbuilt memory, 4GB RAM, 12MP main camera and 5MP front snapper.
