Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is set to be unveiled alongside Samsung Galaxy S7 on February 21, a day before the MWC show starts in Spain.
Many things have been said and numerous renders leaked about the possible design as well as specs of the upcoming Samsung flagship. While the company has not mentioned a thing regarding the looks and specs of the phones, we have gathered some information from popular smartphone leaker Evan Blass who goes by the Twitter handler @evleaks and according to the available renders; it seems the Galaxy S7 Edge is also in the cooking alongside the S7.
One thing you can be sure of is that the new S7 Edge will be powered by Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS. As a continuation of last year’s design of the Galaxy S6 Edge, the South Korean company will be using the same curved edge design for this year’s version of the Edge smartphone. You will also come across a less rounded home button, something that has also been seen on Galaxy S7 renders. The latest images only but justify previous rumors that have been doing rounds.
Samsung has been accused for delaying to roll out Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates. However, there are some users who have reportedly started receiving this latest version on their Samsung smartphones. Besides this, Evan has confirmed that the new phone will come preinstalled with this OS. Whether it will take Samsung the same duration to push the updates of the upcoming Android N (probably N for Nougat) or things will change is something we can’t tell at the moment.
According to the latest reports, Samsung will install the latest Snapdragon 820 chipset that boasts 8 cores and the Galaxy S7 Edge will be supported by a RAM of 4GB. This device will come with a 5.5-inch QHD screen that features a curved-edge design to match with its Edge moniker. The Super AMOLED screen will reportedly come with ClearForce technology that works just like Apple’s 3D Touch.
Samsung will stock a non-removable battery unit of 3,600mAh in the Galaxy S7 Edge in addition to an IP67 rating for water protection. Also expect the housing to be sturdier than last year’s version, with rumors rife that a pretty, silver variant will tag along this device will it is officially released on March 11.
