Galaxy S7 specs and design teased in new leak
While the annual CES event is currently taking place over in Las Vegas, Nevada, many of the mobile industry’s big players focus their attention at the Mobile World Congress that is taking place in Spain towards the end of February. Samsung usually debuts its first flagship handset just before this event and now the Galaxy S7 specs and design are being teased in a new leak.
The rumor mill has obviously been busy in the last few weeks regarding the next flagship Galaxy smartphone, and now sources are claiming that Samsung will showcase a Galaxy S7 and S7 edge that will both offer microSD card expansion as well as an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance.
Furthermore it is being claimed owners will be able to use memory cards with up to 200GB storage, and this year the S7 edge will supposedly have a larger 5.5-inch display compared to the S7 5.1inch. These displays will still have a QHD resolution, 1440 x 2560, but will now have an AOD function that allows users to glance at notifications that is being claimed only uses around 1% of battery power per hour.
With this in mind it seems that Samsung has increased battery power to 3000 mAh for the S7, and 3600 mAh for the S7 edge. These will be powering some new Samsung processors going under the name of Exynos 8 Octa 8890 that have four 2.3GHz high performance gores running alongside four 1.6GHz energy efficient cores.
These should be running alongside 4GB of RAM along with either 32GB or 64GB of onboard storage. Camera wise it is being claimed that the main back shooter will only be 12-megapixels instead of the current 16MP, and with an f/1.7 lens aperture. The new camera is being claimed to be much better than what is currently available in low light conditions.
Of course all these rumors have to be taken with a pinch of salt until we see the big unveiling sometime next month.
Do you like the sound of these claims?
