Samsung isn’t set to reveal the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge until this Sunday, but that didn’t stop the company’s Indonesian division from posting a teaser site and a promotional video which confirms some of the rumored specs that we’ve been hearing about for the past month. Taking center stage in the promo alongside the Galaxy S7 Edge is Indonesian archer Dellie Threesyadinda.

Threesyadinda keeps her Galaxy S7 Edge close by in the video, showcasing the smartphone’s returning wireless charging support and prowess as fitness tracker. Later on in the video, we see Threesyadinda using the Galaxy S7 Edge in a downpour without a care in the world, which goes a long way towards confirming that waterproofing has returned to Samsung’s flagship smartphone family.

The actual teaser website brings even more clues, with the phrase “Bring light to the night,” which we would assume has something to do with improved low light camera performance and “Worry-less discovery” which shows an image of a phone immersed in water (yet more confirmation of waterproofing). We’re less sure about the phrase “Experience privacy at its finest,” which also graces the teaser site, although we can only assume that Samsung has taken great strides to help improve device security.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are rumored to feature 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch 2560x1440 displays respectively and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. The smartphones are also expected to sport 4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of internal storage and possibly a microSD slot for further storage expansion. Also expected at Sunday’s unveil will be Samsung’s taken on the 3D Touch technology featured on the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

We learned last week that Samsung is also expected to give away a free Gear VR headset for customers that pre-order a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge between February 21st and March 10th. The Gear VR retails for $99, so that’s a pretty sweet bonus to add into the mix if you ask us.
