A week ago, Samsung has unveiled its latest Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagships at the Mobile World Congress and the phones became available for pre-order on February 23. However, Samsung has announced that the devices will be officially launched on March 11, but several Reddit users have been assured by T-Mobile representatives that their orders will be shipped on February 29, which is today.
This is a bit confusing, but not improbable to happen, because last year, T-Mobile has started shipping the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge on March 28, although the official release of these devices was set for April 10. History will repeat for sure and the fans who preordered one of the new models will be extremely happy in the next days, when they’ll get their hands on the new Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, ahead of others.
Samsung has added in the box a free Gear VR headset and a six-game bundle, which cost in total $150, but for now, we know that this offer is available only in the US. The customers who pre-ordered one of the new Galaxy S flagships from AT&T will pay $23.17 and $26.50 a month for the contract, and in the end, the total price of the Galaxy S7 will be around $700, while the S7 Edge will be one hundred dollars more expensive.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will share the same internal specs, being available in two variants of hardware configurations, depending on the region where the phones will be sold:
– Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset with a quad core Kryo processor formed from two cores clocked at 2.15 and two cores clocked at 1.6 GHz, which are backed by an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM
– Exynos 8890 Octa chipset with a quad-core 2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, coupled with Mali-T880 MP12 graphics and 4GB of RAM.
The front camera for selfies has a resolution of 5MP, while the rear camera is 12 MP with an aperture of f/1.7, and supports phase detection autofocus, OIS, LED flash, 1/2.6″ sensor size and 1.4 µm pixel size. Both devices are dust and water resistant, likewise the Galaxy S5, but they inherited the glass and metal design from the S6. The S7 has a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD resolution at 577 ppi and it’s powered by a battery with a capacity of 3000mAh, while the S7 Edge is larger than its predecessor, sporting a 5.5-inch screen with the same resolution, but which supports a lower pixel density of 534ppi, while the battery is big enough to last through the day, as it has a capacity of 3600mAh.
