The Samsung Galaxy S6 device was announced during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, that was not the only device that was presented by the South Korean company, as it revealed the Galaxy S6 Edge as well. Well, almost one year has passed since then, and the Mobile World Congress event 2016 is almost here, where Samsung will most likely announce its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge devices.
However, today we’re going to talk about the differences about the Galaxy S6 Edge and the upcoming Galaxy S7 Edge.
The Galaxy S6 Edge measures 142.1×70.1x7mm and weights 132 grams. Samsung has changed its design, building the phone from scratch. The plastic back with a dotted pattern has been replaced with glass and the frame is now made of metal, which makes it less prone to scratches. According to rumors, the Galaxy S7 Edge will be a little larger than its predecessor measuring 151x73mm, but it’s not sure yet how thick it will be.
The Galaxy S6 Edge features a Super AMOLED display of 5.1-inch that supports a QHD resolution and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The Galaxy S7 Edge is expected to come with a larger 5.5-inch display that will also support a Quad HD resolution.
The Galaxy S6 Edge sports a primary camera of 16MP (found on the rear side of the device) and a secondary camera of 5MP (found on the front side of the handset). Many users were very satisfied by the capabilities of the primary camera, but according to rumors, the upcoming device might have a 12MP camera with a new sensor, and the front camera will retain the resolution from the previous phone.
Processors, Graphics Cards, RAM, Storages and Batteries
The Galaxy S6 Edge has an Exynos 7420 chipset with an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A57 processor clocked at 2.1GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, a Mali-T760MP8 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. The handset has been released in three internal storage variants of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, but it doesn’t support a card slot for storage expansion. The device is powered by a battery of 2600 mAh which can’t be removed.
The Galaxy S7 Edge is expected to feature a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 chipset and there are high chances that it will be two variants of this device: one that will feature 3GB of RAM and another one that will have 4GB of RAM. There are rumors which say that Samsung will bring back the microSD support for the Galaxy S7 Edge and if this is true, we’re pretty sure that there will make many users happy. When it comes to the battery, the Galaxy S7 Edge will most likely feature a 3600 mAh unit.
