While MWC 2016 doesn’t officially kick off until tomorrow, all the big guns are busy preparing for announcements today. LG already unveiled the LG G5, giving the G series a massive overhaul both in software and design. While we don’t expect quite as big of a change from Samsung, we’re still plenty excited to see what Samsung has in store for us with their upcoming Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Thanks to a number of leaks, we know that the design won’t be changing a whole lot, but the rumor mill strongly suggests microSD and water resistance will be make their way back to the Galaxy S family after being dropped with the Galaxy S6’s debut last year. It’s certainly possible there could be at least a few other surprises up Samsung’s sleeves as well.
Android Authority will bring you hands-on coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge as soon as we’re allowed to, so make sure to stick around for that. In the meantime, if you want to follow along with the event from home (or work?), we have your back. The Samsung launch event stream is embedded above, and we also have a realtime live blog with all the details as they unfold.
*Event kicks off at 1PM EST and 7PM CET*
