Even though the OEMs have not confirmed their existence, it’s already common knowledge that the next big devices for Samsung and Huawei are the Galaxy S7 and the P9 respectively. This speculation has gotten a huge boost as China Mobile presented its roadmap for 2016, and they showed that these two devices will be launched sometime in March of next year. This more or less confirms that the Galaxy S7 and the Huawei P9 are an actual thing.
China Mobile is the country’s leading carrier, and they probably would not announce something that they did not confirm with the respective OEMs, unless they didn’t have the clearance from them. But either way, the cat is now out of the bag as the powerpoint used for the event has been screen capped and such. The Galaxy S7 will be released, or at least listed, by March through the carrier and the price range will be around 3,000 yuan or $465, placing it in the high-end range.
Meanwhile, another device that was “confirmed” is the P9 from Huawei, a follow-up to its current flagship, the P8. It is expected to be the same price as the latter, which is around 2888 yuan or $445 when converted. This device is 5.2-inches with a 1080p screen and will run on a unicorn 950 processor with 4GB of memory. It will have a horizontal parallel dual camera design and a laser focusing system, so this may be a good new phone for mobile photography enthusiasts.
We’ll have to wait and see though if Samsung and Huawei officially come out with the announcement of their new devices. And since CES is just a few weeks away, we can expect that sooner rather than later.
