Samsung today announced the launch of its new flagship smartphones -- Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge feature the same glass-metal design we saw in the S6 series, but what has changed is the rear camera with a new technology that the company is calling ‘Dual Pixel.’
Samsung's president of Mobile Communications business, DJ Koh, said "We believe in a world that is brighter, sharper, convenient, and more fun. We make every effort to deliver on that vision with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge by elegant design with functionality and providing a flawless mobile experience".
Both Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones sport similar hardware. While the Galaxy S7 offers a 5.1-inch QHD Super Amoled display, weighs 152 gram and is powered by a 3,000mAh battery, on the other hand, the bigger S7 edge sports a 5.5-inch QHD Super Amoled display, 3,600mAh battery and weighs 157 gram.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge come in two storage variants: 32GB and 64GB - both of which can be expanded via microSD card (up to 200GB). Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will be available in two different processor options, depending on the region -- Exynos 8890 64-bit octa-core (2.3GHz quad-core + 1.6GHz quad-core) processor or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core (2.15GHz dual-core + 1.6GHz dual-core) processor.
Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge run latest version of Google's Android operating system, Marshmallow.
The Smartphone will be made available in select regions from mid March 2016, with pre-orders beginning from Tuesday.
