Polish department of T-Mobile leaks slide shows with plans of the biggest mobile phone manufacturers. As it appears, four new Samsung Galaxies, four LG smartphones, two new Xperia Sony devices and two Microsoft Lumia are scheduled for release in the first half of 2016, along with new HTC phone. All this could have been seen clearly, even that two of the four Galaxy phones will be released midway through the first quarter, at least according to T-Mobile.
However, there is still no official confirmation suggesting that Samsung devices will be Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Plus phones, but there are reasons to think so. The remaining Galaxy phones will be published at the end of the first quarter. Microsoft will also launch two new Lumia phones, one mid and one at the end of the first quarter of 2016. T-Mobile leaks also mention the publication of the HTC One devices at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, we will see four new phones from LG, which will follow the two new Xperia phones from Sony.
So far, it looks like Samsung Galaxy S7 rumors are most popular. Evan Blass, better known by his internet pseudonym “evleak”, always brings us some interesting information regarding new releases. It is rumored that the Galaxy S7 phone will come in four different versions – Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Plus, Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 Edge Plus. This is not so surprising because Samsung already has three versions of their current flagship phone – Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
It is interesting to hear that the Plus version will not be more expensive than the other two, but it will be different from them in some ways. Galaxy S7 line of devices should be presented during the Mobile World Congress in February 2016, in Barcelona, Spain. It is expected that Samsung will present Exynos 8890 chipset with Samsung’s first custom CPU cores. Other new rumors point to new camera sensor of 12 megapixels and a whole new series of aluminum cases.
