Strap Your Seatbelts Because There Are Less Than Three Weeks Remaining For The Grand Unveiling Of Galaxy S7

According to a video posted on YouTube, Samsung will be unveiling its Galaxy S7 on February 21, with the region of the announcement being Barcelona. This means that the firm will be showcasing its premium handset during Mobile World Congress 2016, meaning that it is possible that the device will go head to head with HTC's high-end offering. The flagship smartphone is expected to be sporting both Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 and Samsung’s own developed Exynos 8890 SoC (separate chipset models). According to our previously published reports, the upcoming smartphone is going to available in two screen size variants, and they have been listed below:

  • Galaxy S7
  • Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Galaxy S7 Edge Plus
  • Galaxy S7 Plus

We have already stated the specifications present inside the 5.1 inch screen variant, as well as the handset’s dual-SIM models, which will most likely be arriving after the single-SIM versions have been brought into the spotlight. While Samsung has received significant amount of praise for its mobile hardware, it has been bombarded with the exact same opposite responses when it comes to its software. It was even reported that Google is intending on lending a helping hand to Samsung in order to further refine the interface, because it would be a huge blow to the tech giant if it loses out on the most popular Android smartphone manufacturer in the world right now.


As for the battery capacity, it is expected that Samsung is going to house a 3,000mAh battery, along with fast charging capability to allow users more battery life when they cannot invest a hefty amount of time in plugging their device. Additionally, it has also been stated that the upcoming handset will be packing a 12.3MP rear camera sensor with a wide aperture of F/1.7. This goes beyond the capabilities of Galaxy Note 5, which feature an aperture of F/1.9, showcasing that Galaxy S7 will perform very well in low-light conditions.

Despite the fact that the number of megapixels have been decreased, it will actually be advantageous in low-light environments because more light per pixel will effortlessly be able to enter the sensor, resulting in an accurate and pleasing image, even in locations where there are limited sources of light. Galaxy S7 is definitely looking to be a killer smartphone, and if Samsung is able to refine its mobile platform and add a MicroSD card slot, the company will definitely be able to get back into the smartphone game with severe ferocity.
