You know you’re big in the smartphone world when there are rumors surrounding your upcoming products and they aren’t even announced yet! This is nothing new for the senior gladiators like Apple and Samsung, and while we’ve done away with the iPhone 7’s rumors recently, this time, it’s the Samsung Galaxy S7. The Samsung Galaxy S6 series caused some sensation in the smartphone world (though not as much as expected due to it’s expected price tag), we are already getting a taste of what MIGHT be there in the new Samsung Galaxy S7. Will Samsung learn and reduce it’s price tag, or will it be releasing the same kind of breath-taking technology on those money guzzlers? What to expect in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7? Well, find out in Samsung Galaxy S7: All there is to know.
We can only give you what’s out there, and these can be only rumors but then again, most of the resources claim to be genuine. As there were rumors saying that the Samsung Galaxy S7 would be releasing in this year’s CES, but as we all saw, it wasn’t true, we can’t be sure what you should expect to see in the S7. Even so, it’s interesting to speculate on the likes of such cool gadgets, and we’ll do just that in Samsung Galaxy S7: All there is to know. So, here are the things that we might be able to see and all there is to know about the Galaxy S7 in Samsung Galaxy S7: All there is to know.
Design and Display
Rumors, rumors everywhere….but based on them, we can speculate that the S7 will be similar to the S6 in design. There will be two versions of the phone, apparently, called the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with 5.1″ and 5.5″ display respectively. Theses phones will be built on the foundations set by S6, as they are the best designed phones of Samsung so far.
So, they will have the same material construction but suggest that this time around, they’ll have Magnesium alloy for better heat dispersion and it will make it lighter. There is high chance that the Corning Gorilla Glass will be replaced by Turtle Glass, something sturdier than Gorilla Glass. So, the back will have a Turtle Glass finish, making Samsung’s focus on S7 more on durability. The display on Galaxy S6 was 2560 x 1440 resolution, and it will apparently stay the same this time around too. But some sources suggests that Samsung is going to move to 4K display! And the resolution will stay the same for both Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. And there’s another that suggest it will have a water-resistant display. Well, let’s wait and find out what we’ll get for the display.
Secondly, in Samsung Galaxy S7: All there is to know, let’s talk about its camera. Samsung’s done away with it’s SUPERCELL camera, it seems, as it has unveiled a new BRITECELL camera designed to be better in low light and smaller in size than the S6’s. We’re not sure whether we’ll see the new camera for the S7 but it’s very likely.
There also have been reports that Samsung is talking to Sony to get hold of the Sony Xperia Z5-series’ IMX300 sensor for the camera. The rear camera seems to be same torn between 20 MP or 12 MP(with improved quality, of course), with autofocus, Optical Image Stabilization, and dual LED flash capable of taking 2160p videos; just as we can see in other flagships.
Software and Platform
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is sure to release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the Galaxy S7. The processor it will use will probably be the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, but since Samsung has it’s own Exynos processor, there is more chance that it will go with the Octa-core Exynos 8890. Either way, we’ll sure be able to see a powerful beast of a phone, when it combines with it’s 4 GB RAM.
Battery and Memory
This is the front that rumors seem to be very vague in. It’s definitely a non-removable battery for Samsung Galaxy S7, but there are very few sources that speculate about it’s battery power. There’s whispers claiming that the battery will be tweaked up this time. The S7 will supposedly have a 3000 mAh battery while the S7 Edge will posses 3600 mAh of battery. More juice means more fun, then! Of course, it will support Wireless charging and with it’s USB Type-C port, means more faster charging as well.
Will Samsung bow down to public pressure this time? As there have been some rumors claiming it will have a microSD card slot upto 200 GB this time, but others suggest there’s none. Instead, the phones will come out in versions of 32 / 64/ 128 GB of storage. So, this is something which we’ll have to wait and see.
There are many speculations and rumors about what we’ll get to see in the new Samsung Galaxy S7, and some of them are so far-fetched, it isn’t worth mentioning like the one which says S7 will have a foldable display! It is true that Samsung has been working on foldable displays, but it might be for something else, and we sure won’t find it in the new S7.
Other features include the fingerprint scanner, the Qi-Wireless Charging support, and such others. There’s something that has peaked my interest as well. The Galaxy S7 will supposedly have an Iris Retina scanner for even added security. Wow! Samsung is taking the S7 to somewhere new. Also, Samsung is to have it’s own version of Apple’s 3D Touch with Synaptics Clear Touch technology. The success of Apple’s iPhone 6S might have something to do with the 3D Touch, and apparently, Samsung wants that too. For other features, we cannot speculate however, and so, we’ll have to wait and see for ourselves.
Alright, to sum it up, here’s Samsung Galaxy S7: All there is to know
