The Samsung Galaxy S7 could be arriving even sooner than expected if the latest leaks ahead of Mobile World Congress are to be believed

Mobile World Congress 2016 is set to kick off on the 22nd of February and, one month out, the rumour mill is starting to rev up.

The latest news is all about the Samsung Galaxy S7 - a handset which has already seen its fair share of leaks. This time, the info is more about when we'll be able to buy one, with a rumour suggesting it could release by the 11th of March. That's a significant change for Samsung, which has released its last three 'S' phones in April and the previous three in May and June. March is early in the year for a major smartphone release and comes close on the heels of MWC, so anticipation will be high.

There likely won't be too many surprises in store for anyone who is keeping up with the latest leaks - we've already heard quite a lot about the S7. So it's very likely to sport a 5.1 inch screen, Samsung's own Exynos 8890 chip, 4 gigs of RAM, 64 gigs of storage, microSD slot and a 12 megapixel rear camera. We've also heard it will be dust and waterproof and it may have a new design ethos, with more of a black premium look.

Samsung is likely to reveal all at a preview event on the 21st of Febrauary 2016, we'll have all the news then.
