Samsung has announced the launch of it’s flagship smartphone for 2016, the Galaxy S7 which like its predecessor comes with a variant in the form of the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The Galaxy s7 comes with a 5.1-inch QHD Super Amoled display and the bigger Galaxy S7 Edge houses a 5.5-inch QHD Super Amoled display panel; both now come with an always-on display to let you check notifications, date and time without waking up the device. The storage capacity for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge comes in two variants, 32GB and 64GB, respectively and both can be expandable with a microSD card (up to 200GB). They are both powered by an Exynos 8890 octa-core (2.3GHz quad-core + 1.6GHz quad-core) SoC or Qualcomm Snadragon 820 quad-core (2.15GHz dual-core + 1.6GHz dual-core) SoC, depending on the regions.
Both devices house a 12mp “dual pixel” rear camera and a 5mp selfie sensor both featuring an f/1.7 aperture. Other features include the support for fast charging both on wired and wireless for the Galaxy S7’s 3000mAh battery and the Galaxy S7 Edge’s 3600mAh battery. Both the models support NFC and MST payment technologies, house a fingerprint sensor and have IP68 rating for dust and water resistance; they also run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Samsung also introduced their new Gear 360, a standalone spherical camera that can capture a 360-degree view as a high-quality image or video which can be viewed on the Gear VR headset or through the Gear 360 app. 2016 is looking futuristic thanks to Samsung, the devices will be available for order from March in some regions. We are definitely impressed with this new technology.
