Samsung's next generation flagships, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, are teased to be released next month during the MWC 2016. The South Korean giant's next generation flagships are said to be packed with a slew of features that would make the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge some of 2016's most highly anticipated smartphones.

In a report with Indian Express, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are both expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona. There have been a handful of rumors surrounding the next generation flagships, and the latest rumors suggest that the new roster of smartphones could come with 3D Touch feature as well as an all-new "live photos" feature.

According to the website, the South Korean tech giant's next generation flagships will come equipped with a pressure-sensitive display, similar to that of Apple's 3D-Touch screens. In terms of design, the Galaxy S7 won't be drastically different from the S6.

Should rumors be believed, Samsung will also employ another Apple feature. According to Android Geeks, Samsung is working on its own version of Live Photos. However, a notable difference is that Samsung's Live Photos feature won't include sound once the picture is taken. The report added that this feature will allow users to share photos as GIFs on different social media platforms.

The report also says that the Live Photos feature is under development, and might be introduced on devices later than the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It might even become part of a software update. Samsung plans to name the Live Photos feature Vivid Photo, although this is not confirmed as of yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to come equipped with a qHD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor, packed with 4 GB RAM. It will also have a 12 MP rear cam with BRITECELL sensor, and a 5 MP selfie cam. Out of the box, the phone will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will have a triple edge curve, and will come with a 5.5-inch screen. Both phones are without a doubt going to be some of 2016's most highly anticipated phones. It will be interesting to see how Samsung will pan out these features. Rumors also said that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will be water-resistant, and will reportedly reintroduce the microSD slot, a feature that was notably absent in the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Samsung has given no official word on the upcoming flagships, so treat all rumors with a grain of salt.
