SamsunG TP  phone upgrade programme to launch alongside Galaxy S7

Samsung's Galaxy S7 should launch at Mobile World Congress (MWC) next month, but it's not the only announcement the South Korean giant has up its sleeve. It's also reportedly prepping a phone upgrade scheme for Samsung phone-owners.

It would work just like Apple's iPhone Upgrade Programme. In other words, you would pay Samsung a monthly fee, and can upgrade to its latest handset at any time rather than waiting for your contract to end.

You would also get to choose your network, as long as they support your Samsung device.

It would most probably include some kind of insurance similar to Apple Care+, which Apple offers with its iPhone Upgrade Programme.

The programme will launch in Samsung's native market of South Korea first, most probably in March at the same time as the Galaxy S7 goes on sale. It could expand to other countries later.

The Galaxy S7 is expected to be unveiled in February at MWC and to go on sale on March 11th.

According to rumours, it will have a 12-megapixel camera (down from 16 megapixels on the S6), a 5.1-inch screen and 4GB of RAM.
