The world most certainly hasn't seen the Samsung Galaxy S6 amid countless rumors and concept designs which have already popped online. For one, the Korean tech giant has kept mum over talks surrounding the flagship device and all its alleged variants -- standard S6, S6 Edge and S6 mini -- but it looks like the company needs to show fans something soon.

Why is that?

Apparently, speculations are already pointing to the Galaxy S7. As industry speculations knit the threads of the Galaxy S6, there goes the fibers of S7 beginning to form a muscle. Hence, we've curated the loudest rumors aimed at the Samsung Galaxy S7, so check them out below.

Release Date

Before we get into specs and features, let it be known that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is rumored to arrive this year.

According to Appinessh, experts have claimed that 2015's last quarter will bring "the most amazing smartphone of the decade." This device is said to be the Galaxy S7.

If this holds truth, Samsung might be showcasing two flagships in the same year, not to mention the possibility of supplementary models.

Waterproof Technology

Citing the enviable feature of Sony's Xperia Z and Z1, samsunggalaxysvii.com reported that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will pack the same waterproof technology. In fact, the outlet claims that S7's will be better. Allegedly, the smartphone can be submerged 15 meters underwater with "no effect" on it.

5G Connectivity

The lead of the 5G Innovation Centre at the University of Surrey said: "5G will be a dramatic overhaul and harmonisation of the radio spectrum."

The source also mentioned a Samsung announcement in 2013, when the company has tested 5G at 1Gbps. That said, is the Galaxy S7 poised to pilot the delivery of such?
