Samsung has fixed a big problem that was giving Galaxy S7 edge users headaches. This phone has a dual edge display and the curved sides are very sensitive to touch, meaning that when users hold their phones and they’re accidentally touching the edges of the screen, taps on the display with the thumb or a finger from the other hand are not recognized all the time.
The software update has fixed this issue and now it’s rolling out to the users from Europe. Unfortunately, it will take longer for carriers to push it to their customers, especially in the US.
The software has build number XXU1APD1, it weighs 156MB and it will be available worldwide in maximum two weeks. According to the change log, this software update improves touch and stability, but it was also added a new feature that corrects shapes that are shown distorted in skewed photos and this option has been introduced in the camera settings.
We remind you that the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have been unveiled in February, but they’ll hit the stores until the end of March. Both flagships are available in two variants of hardware configurations: Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset with a Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo CPU and a dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo CPU, an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM, or an Exynos 8890 Octa chipset with a Quad-core 2.3 GHz Mongoose CPU and a quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, a Mali-T880 MP12 GPU and 4GB of RAM; they’re both offering two variants of internal memories of 32GB and 64GB, which are expandable up to 200GB.
When it comes to cameras, the one on the back has a resolution of 12MP and an aperture of f/1.7, offering features such as OIS and LED flash, while the front shooter is 5MP and has the same optics. The Galaxy S7 has a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED QHD screen with a pixel density of 577 ppi, which is kept alive by a 3000mAh battery, while the S7 edge has a much larger display of 5.5-inch with 534ppi, and its battery has a capacity of 3600mAh. Also, both flagships benefit from IP68 certification, meaning that they’re protected against dust and water.
