After LG released G5, it was Samsung’s turn to showcase their device. They have unveiled two new flagship devices – Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Both the devices are similar except for the unique screen of Galaxy S7 Edge.
Galaxy S6 saw a debut of the metal body for a Samsung flagship. Samsung has decided not to tamper with it and both Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will come with a metal body. The design has remained more or less the same since half a decade.
Samsung Galaxy S7 will have a 5.1″ QHD display while Galaxy S7 Edge will have a 5.5″ QHD display. In addition, Galaxy S7 Edge will have a curve around the edges which was also seen in last year’s device.
Both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be powered by either a Samsung Exynos 8 Octa or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, depending on the market. Both devices will have 4GB of RAM. Samsung has finally decided to include expandable storage in the S7 range – you can expand the memory up to 200GB!
However, the battery in Galaxy S7 and S7 will be non-removable. The S7 comes with a non-removable 3000mAh unit, while the S7 Edge has a 3600mAh cell. Both have Quick Charging and wireless charging capabilities.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will have a 12MP rear-facing cameras with an f/1.7 aperture and a 1.4µm pixel size. They will be able to let in 25% more light than on the S6 and S6 Edge. The front camera will be 5MP.
Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will have always-on displays. The lock screens will have the ability to show time, a camera shortcut, notifications, weather information, battery percentage and a few other useful pieces of information.
These flagship devices will run on Android Marshmallow out of the box. And they will also have IP68 rating meaning they will be dust and waterproof.
Samsung have not given any information on the pricing and availability of both the phones but they are expected to hit the stores sometime in March.
