While flagships smartphones didn't make the cut during CES 2016, the attention is now moved towards MWC 2015 as both Samsung and LG are expected to tank it out with their new refreshed flagships for 2016. There has been talks about the Galaxy S7 and LG G5 over the holiday season but those were just rumors and reports.

If you were hoping that Samsung will be dishing out something totally new this year, you're out of luck. Prolific phone leaker, Evan Blass is confirming that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will retain most of the design aspects of last year's Galaxy S6. The overall metal and glass build is retained but this time around, Samsung is re-introducing the microSD card slot and IP67 certification like on the Galaxy S5 (according to the source).

Expect to see the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge debut officially during MWC 2016 in Barcelona and the device will be rolling out globally in early March.
