Samsung has confirmed it will unveil the Galaxy S7 at an Unpacked event in Barcelona on February 21. The short video below teases “the next Galaxy,” which is expected to go on sale in the U.S. and Europe on March 11 with big internal improvements.

Thanks to recent leaks, we were already expecting a Galaxy S7 announcement at Mobile World Congress later this month — but now Samsung has confirmed it. The news comes just days after official press renders of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge leaked out early.

Samsung’s short teaser video below doesn’t provide us with an early glimpse at its new devices, unfortunately, but the glowing number 7 seen on the box all but confirms what’s coming.

The Galaxy S7 series will look almost identical to the Galaxy S6 series, but recent rumors have promised significant changes internally. Samsung is expected to add Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor, a new 12-megapixel camera with BRITECELL technology, and a microSD card slot.

The Galaxy S7 is also likely to have a pressure-sensitive display just like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
