Another day, another round of conflicting rumors regarding Samsung Galaxy S7 variants. We’ve heard it all by now: there will be 2 models, 3 models, and even 4 models. There will be a Plus-sized version of the regular S7 and Edge, or the Edge itself will be the lone phablet in the bunch. The regular model will be 5.1 or 5.2 inches, and the phablet will be 5.5 or 5.7 inches. We’ve even heard one of the models will stretch as big as 5.9 inches. Some models will have Snapdragon and some will sport Exynos.
See what we mean? It’s getting to be a bit much, and quite frankly we just wish it were February already so it would end. The latest info comes from import listings that hit Zauba, a database of product imports in India.
They show that two Samsung flagships have hit the country recently:
- SM-G930R — 5.1-inch display (Galaxy S7)
- SM-G935R — 5.5-inch display (Galaxy S7 Edge)
Now, compare that to a recently-leaked AT&T model of the S7 Edge with the model number SM-G935A that is only showing a 5.1-inch display. Considering Samsung tends to use similar model numbers across the board for all regions — with the only differentiating factor being extra letters or numbers at the end of the base model number — color us completely confused.
One thing we can say with confidence is that there will be multiple models at launch and that you’ll have your pick of traditional and phablet form factors, but it’s probably best to wait for Samsung’s big event before we take anything as gospel.
