Samsung Mobiles: Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge Now Official, Arrives On March 11

Samsung has finally took he warps off its 2016 flagships Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at its Unpacked media event in Barcelona. Two high-end smartphones with great design and premium materials, just like Apple and HTC have done for years now, had something to prove with last year’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Samsung has ditched the cheesy plastic and replaced it with all-metal and glass architecture. Both the new mobiles comes with removal batteries, expandable storage slots and of course waterproofing. You really, really doesn’t want to wait long to get your hands on a Galaxy S7 and alongside the Galaxy S7 Edge as the couple will arrive in Europe and the US on March 11th.

Pre-orders for both start February 23rd at many carriers. In the US, the biggest four carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon) will be offering the S7 starting at $23 per month on an installment plan, and the S7 Edge for $27 per month. How much you pay depends on your network. Notably, unlike the S6, there’s only one 32GB capacity available for either S7 model. For extra storage space you’ll have to spring for a microSD card if you need more memory.

There’s still a big difference between the S7 and S7 Edge, They both runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and have an octa-core Snapdragon 820 (quad-core 2.15GHz + quad-core 1.6GHz processors). Coupled with 4GB of RAM or an Exynos chipset, depending on where you’re buying them. The two mobile devices have support for expandable SD card slots – and the pair are incredibly powerful devices that easily dealt with short-term fiddling though.

The camera setup garnered very nicely too, especially considering that Samsung went with 12-megapixel rear camera sensors instead of 16MP affairs. Opened up with the aperture on those lenses to f/1.7 and bumped the pixel size on the sensors, all to improve low-light performance. Cameras usually hate the dark side, but testings showed that the S7 siblings outperformed the Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus when things got really dim. Toss in a laser autofocus module, as found in G4 and LG G5, Samsung has engineered a Dual Pixel sensor that – that really focuses on incredibly fast autofocusing.

Thankfully, both the new Galaxy S 2016 lineup have curved backs like Galaxy Note 5. In this case of the Edge, the curve wraps around the entire phone, making far beyond to feel more than a little like an iPhone. Speaking of these Galaxy bodies, Samsung indicates something about how durable they are – that’s probably why both devices are now IP68 water-resistant.

Curiously the Galaxy S7 Edge is a physically bigger device; it has a 5.5-inch curved Super AMOLED display, as compared to the normal S7, with flat 5.1-inch panel. New comers have always-on modes so you can check the time and notifications without firing the phones up for the umpteenth time.

Given the fact that the S7 Edge a bigger screened-gadget, Samsung’s trying to set the Edge apart with more than just aesthetics and crave out a more specific niche for the regular S7. With bigger body of the S7 Edge also has a bigger battery, though both have gotten hefty upgrades from the past. There’s a 3600mAh battery in the Edge, whereas the S7 was only boosted to 3000mAh. The pack can also be recharged blazing fast with wired and Wireless Fast Charging (WPC and PMA standards).

With a keenly sharp 577ppi engine, its body measures in at 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9mm and weighs in at 152g and has a 2.5D effect on all four sides of the front.  It has hybrid dual SIM support that lets you use the second slot as a expansion slot when required. The Galaxy S7 Edge adds another dimension to the mix with its impressive screen, curved on both sides and now a bit bigger than its predecessor, and body measuring 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7mm and just a tad heavier – 157g.

Other hardware features include Dual-band Wi-Fi ac, MIMO, Bluetooth v.4.2, ANT+ and support for both NFC and MST. Payment systems by far rely on them, as Samsung has stuck with USB 2.0 and the familiar connector.
