RAM and Storage capability:
Samsung is manufacturing Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Smartphone’s with 4GB RAM. It also have UFC 2.0 feature which will fasten your video recording experience with fast data storage. These phones are available with 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB internal storage. Earlier this year we got many rumours that Samsung can re-introduce micro SD card slot this time. And those rumors were true as Samsung re-introduced micro SD card slot for extra storage upto 200 GB. We saw that most of customers are not happy with their limited storage mobile phones and wanted this features back with S7 flagship.
Display and design:
Talking about display sizes of these smartphone, Galaxy S7 possess a 5.1 inch SUPER AMOLED display while Galaxy S7 edge have 5.5 inch display. The Edge+ variants comes with 5.7 inch display. All variants have 1440 X 2560 pixels which is QHD. The Galaxy S7 smartphone has beautiful sleek design (6.9 mm) and made of premium quality metal and Force Touch TouchWIZ.
Camera Specs & features:
Earlier it was rumored that Galaxy S7 will have a 23 MP primary camera. But as per actual specs the new Galaxy Smartphone has a 12.2 MP, f/1.7 camera sensors and 8 MP front camera. This looks like quite disappointing as 12 mega pixels is very less as many low end devices these days features comparatively 12-16 MP. But it’s not like increasing pixels will help you to capture high quality images as f/1.7 aperture lens which is one of the best camera lens for mobile phones.
12.2 MP have Samsung’s in-house camera sensors called BRITECELL which makes it quite remarkable as the phone can shoot 4K videos and can easily beat 20 MP camera of its competitors. This new technology of “BriteCell” was seen at Samsung Electronics 2015 Investors. According to reports this new camera sensors have improved picture quality even when shooting in low light. Earlier we have reported Samsung S7 with ISOCELL camera, but BRITECELL has an upper hand to ISOCELL as its an in-house made.
The Galaxy S7 have fast charging enabled batteries that can be fully chargeable in no time. The New Samsung Galaxy will be able to get 80% of charging in just 30 minutes.
The phone has Clear Force display developed by Synaptic which features 3D touch like Apple iPhone. Both devices have pressure sensitive display with improved Force TouchWiz.
Yes, new generation Galaxy S7 Smartphone have embedded SIM cards, as we are moving towards next level. E-SIM’s is the new feature to Samsung S7. With these new SIM cards, you can use multiple networks without changing your SIM’s.
The Galaxy S7 has a 3000 mAh non-removable battery while the S7 Edge variant is powered by 3600 mAh battery. Comparing this with Galaxy S6 (2550 mAh), this year we got far better Galaxy Smartphone. It is expected to offer approx. 70 hours of music play, 18 hours of video playback and a whole day (24 hours) talk time which is really impressive.
Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge will be available from March 11th with pre orders starting February 23rd this year. The price is still not confirmed as Samsung has not announced the prices of the new flagship devices. You can also get Galaxy VR for free if you pre-order it before March 10.
