Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagships connected to T-Mobile have received a new update that brought a Power and Volume key fix, as well as other system improvements. The update weighs around 164MB, it includes Android’s May security update, as well, and it’s available over the air.
If until now there were bugs that affected the functionality and volume keys, they were completely removed in the new update for T-Mobile’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagships. If users haven’t received the update yet, they can manually check for its availability by heading to their devices’ Settings > About device. After installing the update, the Galaxy S7 will run software version G930TUVU2APD7, while the Galaxy S7 Edge will run on software version G935TUVU2APD7.
Regarding the FM radio support, it is good to know that this feature gives users access to their favorite local radio stations so they can listen to music for free. NextRadio has created an FM radio application which can be installed on Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and the developers said that their application uses three times less battery power than when users choose a music-streaming service. Either way, users need to plug headphones into their S7 or S7 Edge, which will act as an antenna.
Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge – Specs
The two new flagships don’t follow in the footsteps of their predecessors, because the Edge variant is now a phablet with a 5.5-inch display, while the S6 Edge had the same screen size as the S6 (5.1-inch), but, later, in August, Samsung has brought a S6 Edge+ model, which was released simultaneously with the Galaxy Note 5. So, the only difference between the S7 and the S7 Edge is related to their dimensions, as the former measures 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9 mm and the latter measures 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm, which means that the first one has a smaller battery of 3000mAh and the phablet is powered by a much later battery of 3600mAh.
The rest of the specs are identical: both phones are dust and dust resistant, have a glass back and a metal frame and they’re available in two variants of hardware configurations: Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset with a Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo CPU and dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo CPU backed by an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM; while the other model uses an Exynos 8890 chipset with a Quad-core 2.3 GHz Mongoose CPU and quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU backed by Mali-T880 MP12 graphics and 4GB of RAM. However, there are two variants of internal memories to choose from: 32GB and 64GB and they’re expandable up to 200GB. The primary camera has a resolution of 12MP, while the secondary one supports 5MP, but they share the same aperture (f/1.7).
