The devices come with a variety of upgrades and new features that we've been hearing about for quite a while and users will undoubtedly enjoy. Things seem to be moving just as fast on the other side of the planet as well, with the Korean electronics giant, Samsung, also making headway into its flagship upgrade, the Samsung Galaxy S7. The Galaxy S7 has been a feature of several news pieces already and today we've managed to learn a bit more about the device.
Samsung Galaxy S7 To Feature 5.7 Inch Display Among Other Features
This year's Galaxy flagship smartphone launch from Samsung came with its fair share of controversy. Apparently prompted by overheating issues of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810, the Korean manufacturer chose to employ its own Exynos 7420 process into both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, which soon became one of the contributing factors to their popularity after launch. The Galaxy smartphone launch also came with a curved Galaxy S6 Edge variant, that managed to generate a considerable amount of interest from people all around the globe.
But things soon went downhill, with Samsung underestimating the Galaxy S6 Edge's demand, and launching a Galaxy S6 Edge Plus a couple of months back to try to cash more on the device's popularity. Now, Korean publication MK has allegedly managed to uncover some more details about Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S7. It believes that sales of Samsung's current Galaxy handsets can reach 81 million by the end this year, and the Korean manufacturer is looking to launch the Galaxy S7 earlier than it generally upgrades its devices.
The Galaxy S7, according to this information will be coming with a much larger screen this time around, with the screen size of the device being reported as 5.7 inches. The device can be expected to come as early as February 2016, due to the fact that Samsung's component deliveries for the Galaxy S7 have been faster than usual. The device will also be featuring an alleged upgrade in the camera section, with reports of the Galaxy S7 to come with a dual camera setup on board.
As far as the processor side of things go, the Galaxy S7 will indeed be employing both the Snapdragon 820 and Samsung's much anticipated Exynos M1. But according to the source of this information, the company will still be giving its home-grown processor a greater share of the Galaxy S7 pie. We've already seen several reports that Samsung and Qualcomm ahve been collaborating for the Snapdragon 820 on the Galaxy S7, but today's news adds a bit of confusion to the mix.
Questions such as whether it'll be the Snapdragon 820 or the Exynos M1 that's made available internationally or will Samsung restrict SoCs to geographical locations still need to be answered. We're sure to learn more in the upcoming months however.
