Samsung isn't officially showing off its next flagship phone until the 21st, there's already a video of it available on a company YouTube channel. Imploring us to get ready for #TheNextGalaxy, the video shows off what we're guessing are the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. There's not much in the way of details and the design looks very close to the current S6 lineup, but a rainy segment would appear to confirm rumors of waterproofing. It also appears to have a flat back, confirming a Wall Street Journal report that it would ditch the protruding camera hump this time around.

Separately, a tipster tells Engadget that a rumored March 11th launch date is correct, that the devices will be IP68 waterproof certified, and there will be SIM card / microSD card slots on the top. Phone Probe also pointed out a Samsung Indonesia webpage that says the Galaxy S7 will "bring light to the night," which alludes to better low-light camera performance. That all lines up with the leaked images we've seen before, although we should find out for sure in about a week.
