Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge have less than two weeks before they are officially unveiled.
Samsung will be holding its launch event a day before the onset of this year’s MWC 2016 show in Barcelona, Spain. The show is scheduled for February 22, but the South Korean tech giant wants to grab the attention of those at the event by unveiling the new gadget earlier.
Numerous rumors have been doing rounds all over the web with respect to how these devices will look like and the specs they will come with. While many comparisons have been drawn with respect to last year’s Samsung Galaxy S6 series, it seems we’ll be in for some huge significant this year. One of the main words that have dominated the streets is that Samsung Galaxy S7 and its counterpart Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will come with a water-resistant and dust proof capability.
Well, this is something that was very popular with Samsung’s plastic-covered flagships. The last time this was seen is 2014 when Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled. Last year’s models dropped this feature thanks to the fact that the gizmos had adopted a new body design that made of all-metal.
Even though the company has not yet mentioned anything regarding this rumor, we seem to have stumbled on some real truth about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 series of smartphones. According to recent listings from the import and export tracking website Zauba, it seems this feature will for sure come along with the new devices.
Zauba is renowned for its accurate revelations about unannounced phones. The listings on the site show a number of components of the upcoming devices that are waterproof, among them a SIM tray and microphone. The website confirms that the components are meant for Samsung SM-G930 (which is the model number of the Galaxy S7) and Samsung SM-G935 (the model number for Galaxy S7 Edge).
The same website also brought to the public details about the new devices’ screens. Samsung Galaxy S7 will have a 5.1 inch screen size while the S7 Edge will come with a 5.5 inch screen. Both screens will feature Super AMOLED QHD technology and resolutions of 1440 by 2560 pixels. Further reports are that Samsung will resume its love affair with Qualcomm and use the Snapdragon 820 in U.S. models and stick to its in-house Exynos 8890 for European models.
Other features to expect on this phone include a 4GB RAM, a huge battery unit, a new 12MP snapper on the rear and many others.
