Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Leaks
Decided to put together an article encompassing all the various leaks about the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge that are likely to be announced very soon – including images and specs. First of all, Samsung is likely to hold their “unpacked” event before Mobile World Congress on Feb 21st. Rumors suggest that the release date of the Galaxy S7 will be on March 11th.
Now let’s move onto things about the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Yes, there will be two variants. That being said, the smaller device will be the Galaxy S7 and the larger one will be the Galaxy S7 Edge including that edge display that was found as a variant of the S6 and S6 Edge+.
Projected specs of the Galaxy S7:
- 5.1″ Galaxy S7, 5.5″ Galaxy S7 Edge
– Both with a 1440X2560 Super AMOLED Display
-Potentially an “Always On Display (AOD)” similar to Moto Display. Perfect for AMOLED screens
- It is rumored to bring back the MicroSD card! Great news.
- IP67 dust and water resistanace would be a nice addition
- Non-removable 3,000 mAh (S7) and 3,600 mAh (S7 Edge) battery
- Snapdragon 820 processor or Exynos 8 Octa 8890 Processor
-Possibly including category 9 LTE w/ up to 450mbps download speeds
- 4GB RAM
- 32/64GB Storage
- 12MP camera compared to the Galaxy S6’s 16MP camera
-rumored to have an f/1.7 lens aperture (S6 had 1.9)
Aside from these specs, there are also rumored features for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. First of all, I hope they add more and more features to include with having an “Edge” display. I didn’t find myself using them very much on the S6 Edge. There has also been talk about Samsung including a “3D Touch” pressure sensitive display similar to that found on the iPhone 6s. Now according to the leaked pictures shown below, it doesn’t seem like they will be including a USB Type-C connector, but that still isn’t confirmed. As seen below, there is also a leak that says that Samsung will release a Gear 360 VR Camera alongside the Galaxy S7.
