Samsung to launch Galaxy S7 series
Two new Galaxy S series models are on their way into making. It is rumored that Samsung will launch two variants of Galaxy S7 sometime in March or April next year. Galaxy S7 probably might look a bit similar to its predecessor Galaxy S6, but it will be of a higher quality. Reports suggest that the Galaxy S7 will come in two sizes: 5.2 inches and 5.8 inches. However it’s unclear whether either one of these models will be an Edge model.
Samsung Galaxy S7 features (expected)
The Galaxy S series has always been known for its great display, powerful processor and high quality camera, but its sound quality has never been of a standout quality. This might change with the Galaxy S7 as a report claims that it will feature a high quality audiophile-grade Stereo D/A converter from ESS Technology. It is supposedly the world’s most powerful 32-bit converter. Also, this model might feature a 4GB RAM. Galaxy S7 series will be available with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB internal storage options but this time we can expect a micro SD card slot too.
Talking about the camera, it is rumored that the Galaxy S7 will feature a 20-megapixel ISOCELL camera and a minimum 8MP front camera. But it’s not clear whether Samsung will continue to use Sony sensors for certain models like it did with the Galaxy S6.
Reports also suggest that Samsung may return to Qualcomm power for the Galaxy S7. Not all Galaxy S7 models may use the Snapdragon 820 – only those models released in the U.S. and China. S7 phones sold elsewhere may feature Samsung’s own Exynos chips (8890 processor). Earlier too Samsung has used both sources of power for its Galaxy phone.
One of the biggest features to look for in Galaxy S7 phones would be its 3D touch feature. The latest S series models will reportedly have a special technology from Synaptics called the ClearForce. Similar to the 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and Force Touch on the Apple Watch, ClearForce technology registers a firm press differently than a light tap. This technology could be used to bring up contextual menus and other cool features.
We have always found Samsung phones to be a bit pricey and we might find the Galaxy S7 series under the same category.
It’s a long way for Samsung before the actual launch of Galaxy S7 series and may be that is why it hasn’t made any official statement regarding its features. One can only anticipate for now and hope that all these rumored specifications would be present in these latest handsets.
