The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the HTC One M10 are two of the most anticipated smartphones expected to roll out in 2016. Here's how the two mobile devices compare with each other.

Note that these are all hearsays for now and the tech companies are yet to issue official statements.

Design & Display

A report that surfaced this week from SamMobile via Samsung's popularly leaky Vietnamese supply chain said that the Galaxy S7 will be released in three versions at the same time. Value Walk wrote that the models are the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, and Galaxy S7 Edge+.

In addition, Value Walk speculated that the Galaxy S7 will come with a magnesium alloy build and glass exterior. Android Origin reported that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will have 5.1-5.3 inch displays.

The HTC One M10, on the other hand, will reportedly come with the same all-metal chassis just like its predecessor, according to Christian Today.

Camera & Specs

Value Walk reported that Samsung's upcoming flagship will be equipped with a dual-camera setup, with a 20-megapixel sensor carrying 1.0 micron-sized pixels. This technology is said to utilize minimal power. There are also reports that the tech giant is making sure that their upcoming smartphone will have improved support for low light shooting.

Other rumored specs for the Galaxy S7 are 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB internal storage with memory card support, fingerprint sensor, and a 3,000 mAh removable battery, Android Origin listed.

Rumors say that the HTC One M10 will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM. It's also possible that the One M10 will have a bigger camera sensor, perhaps at 27 megapixels, Tech Times wrote. The device's battery is expected to be at 3,500 mAh, with the 64 GB and 128 GB storage models expandable via microSD.

Christian Post listed other expected features for the device, such as a USB Type-C port, Android Marshmallow as its operating system, wireless charging, and a waterproof body.

Other reports also claimed that HTC's new smartphone will not be called the One M10, and will instead bear the name HTC O2, according to Phones Review.

Release Date & Price

There are speculations that the Galaxy S7 will appear before the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February, Value Walk noted. This means that the handset will be announced in January. Android Origin estimated that the Galaxy S7 will be priced between $599 and $1000.

Christian Post is speculated to be launched in early December 2015 or around March or April 2016. The handset may have a starting price of $800 to $900, Android Pit wrote.
