Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Now Officially – MWC 2016
On to the ongoing MWC 2016 event in Barcelona, were presented two new flagship of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The new models have a design similar to that of the previous generation (Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge), but the similarities end there.
First, both phones are waterproof certified IP68, have improvements in camera and a microSD memory card slot. Galaxy S7 retains the 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display as its predecessor the S7 Edge comes with a larger 5.5-inch display (again QHD Super AMOLED curved and both sides).
The cameras on the back stand out less, while Galaxy S7 Edge back is slightly curved for comfortable grip. It is also remarkably smaller than other phones with 5.5-inch screens such as the iPhone 6S Plus.
Galaxy S7 Edge is a phone that most people could use with one hand, although there is a large display. Both phones have a microSD card slot and built-in 32 GB of memory (Samsung say that in some regions will be offered a model with 64 GB of internal memory), Certificate IP68 water and dust resistant, which allows for immersion in up 1.5 m of water for 30 minutes.
The bad news is that Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge does not come with USB Type-C ports the micro USB port retains for compatibility with VR glasses Gear VR. Furthermore, the new standard is not yet ready for widespread use, add the Korean manufacturer. Samsung Galaxy S7 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 820 (in North America), which is a deviation from its own Exynos chips Korean manufacturer used in S6.
Exynos processor found a place in the new smartphones for other regions of the world and comes also with 4GB RAM. Unfortunately for some users Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge does not offer an option for easy battery replacement. But Samsung has increased the size of the phone’s battery to 3000 mAh in S7 (from 2550mAh to S6) and 3600mAh for S7 Edge (against 2,600 in S6 Edge).
These batteries are significantly bigger, especially for S7 Edge, so hopefully will have a significant improvement in the autonomous operation between charges. Both phones also remain with adaptive fast charging and Samsung wireless charging. Perhaps the most significant change this year comes with new 12-megapixel camera on the S7. It has a lower resolution in comparison to last year’s model, but Samsung claims that the larger pixels capture 56% more light than before.
This certainly improve the pictures in low light conditions. Furthermore, the lens has a higher sensitivity (F / 1.7 aperture) and captures 25% more light. In combination with the new sensor and lens caught light is 95% more than last year’s model, which is impressive achievement. Moreover, Samsung has gone from 16: 9 to 4: 3 ratio. Samsung claimed that a new camera could focus to three times faster, thanks to its double pixel system that allows each of the 12 million pixels to act as a focus pixel. The camera also starts much faster.
The software that powers the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, is Android 6.0 Marshmellow with TouchWiz interfere from Samsung. Available function is always on screen that shows the sample of notifications, calendar, time, etc. But this feature is not activated by movement of your phone, as in Motorola.
Samsung says that the function consumes only half a percent of the battery per hour, and if the proximity sensor is covered when the phone is in a bag or pocket, the screen turns off.
Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be available in the US and Europe on March 11 and preorders start February 23. Galaxy S7 will come in black or gold and S7 Edge – black, gold or silver. Samsung said that people who have a pre-order will receive a gift Gear VR.
