Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge: What We Know So Far

Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

Samsung is reportedly getting ready to unleash its latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, later this month, with the hope these would help it arrest the recent decline in sales.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge

Although the device specifications haven’t yet been officially revealed, it appears the South Korean tech company may have winners on its hands based on leaked information. Here is the much we know about these latest flagships at this time.

Samsung Galaxy S7

Not a lot is expected to change in the Galaxy S7 in terms of design, compared to its predecessor. This means you may have a svelte body featuring metal and glass here. It is said that Samsung is toying with the idea of using magnesium alloy for more robust construction, lightness and better heat dissipation.

The phone will be water-resistant so you will not need to fret over accidental drops in water.

Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to be fitted with a stunning 5.1-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a Quad HD resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. It promises jaw-dropping viewing with a very high pixel density of about 576 ppi.

The display will be protected by either Corning Gorilla Glass 5 or Turtle Glass and support 3D Touch technology (probably Synaptics’ ClearForce) offering similar capabilities as that on Apple’s iPhone 6S.

In terms of camera, it is said a lower-resolution 12-megapixel snapper will be fitted on the device, compared to the 16-megapixel shooter on its predecessor.

The Korean company is reportedly more interested in getting the device to produce breathtaking images in low-light conditions with an improved f/1.7 aperture. Samsung Galaxy S7 will likely rock a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies.

Under the hood, the smartphone will be equipped with an octa-core Exynos 8890 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, possibly depending on individual markets. The powerful processor will be supported by 4 GB of RAM for highly convincing performance.

The Galaxy S7 is expected to boot latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system out of the box, with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on top.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Just as Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge was to the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S7 Edge is the curvy brother of the Galaxy S7. Tipsters are saying it will come with a larger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display having the same awesome resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels as its regular brother.

The stunning touchscreen should also feature 3D Touch technology and robust protection. The handset is expected to add slightly more curve to its edges and have a Home button shaped differently. It will offer water-resistant design and share other design elements of the Galaxy S7.

No difference is expected between the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the regular variant in terms of what buyers get in the camera department. It is also expected to come with similar hardware and software configurations.

However, a key selling point of the Galaxy S7 Edge will be its more powerful 3,600mAh battery which looks ready to support long hours of use. This juicer might not be the biggest we have seen recently, but it means more when offered by a company of Samsung’s status – the tweaks made by manufacturers go a long way in determining battery runtime, more than cell capacity does.

Miscellaneous Specs and Features

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to be offered in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage versions. A cheering piece of news is that microSD card slots may be making their return on these latest flagships, giving users access to more storage space.

They will most certainly come with a fingerprint sensor for added security; there is even talk of there being an iris scanner as well.

Fast-charging, reversible USB Type-C port is expected to also be present. Talking about charging, the phone will support Qi or PMA wireless charging and offer fast charging with Quick Charge 3.0, boosting the battery up to 83% capacity in just 30 minutes.

Superb sound may also be part of the package with talk of the Galaxy S7 devices using an ESS Technology chip with 32-bit mobile audio DAC and 129dB signal-to-noise ratio.

You can also see the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core 2020, the Samsung Galaxy A21, the Samsung Galaxy M21, the Samsung Galaxy A31, and the Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G.
