Samsung will launch the Galaxy S7 in Europe on March 11, according to yet another reliable source. The device is expected to bring Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor, a new camera with BRITECELL technology, and a pressure-sensitive display.

“The date comes from the same source who provided us with an exclusive look at the LG G5’s redesign and the Galaxy S7’s dimensions, as well as correctly detailing the size of Galaxy S6 Edge+ last year, so we are pretty confident about this,” reports Android Authority.

The same date has also been reported by the ever-reliable Evan Blass (@evleaks) for the U.S., which suggests both the U.S. and Europe will see Samsung’s latest flagship on the same day. Europeans had to wait longer the Galaxy S6 last year.

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy S7 series at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. Recent rumors have claimed it will look a lot like its predecessor, but will pack a number of significant internal improvements.

Those include the latest processors from Qualcomm and Samsung, a 12-megapixel “BRITECELL” camera with a larger aperture, expandable storage, 4GB of RAM, and a pressure-sensitive display just like the iPhone’s. The device will also run Marshmallow out of the box.
