A new leak from China points to full specifications of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S7 and its curved-edge-display clad sibling Galaxy S7 Edge.
According to a Weibo update, the Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch display, whereas the Galaxy S7 Edge will come with a bigger 5.5-inch screen. It’s worth mentioning that past rumors have been split between a 5.1-inch and 5.2-inch display for the flagship. As it turns out, the exact size is 5.17-inch and this explains the screen size confusion, according to another Weibo comment.
When it comes to resolution, the devices are believed to carry a Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, following the current trend. The display technology used by Samsung is the synonymous Super AMOLED panels.
While the Galaxy S7 is reported to come housed with a solid 3,000 mAh battery cell, the S7 Edge will apparently go bigger with a phenomenal 3,600 mAh unit. Samsung has also upped the ante in the power consumption side of things and with a big battery capacity mentioned above, the handsets should offer excellent battery life theoretically.
Phone Arena, meanwhile, said that with a huge battery, the S7 lineup will come with a thicker chassis, unlike the current-generation Galaxy S6 series. Not to forget, the relatively cheaper Galaxy A9 comes bundled with a monstrous 4,000 mAh battery unit. Therefore, it is quite obvious that the South Korean tech giant would not settle for anything lesser for its coveted flagship.
Speaking of camera configuration, the S7 versions will reportedly sport a 12-megapixel rear-facing sensor with f/1.7 aperture. Under the hood, either an Exynos 8890 chipset or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 will be powering the devices, based on the region of release. A 4 GB RAM has also been listed as part of the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge specifications.
As far as the memory goes, the devices will apparently come equipped with either 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage capacity. However, this time around, unlike the S6 series Samsung will be bringing back the microSD card slot with an expansion capacity of up to 200 GB.
However, readers are advised to take the reported Galaxy S7 specifications with the proverbial pinch of salt as Samsung has not confirmed any information so far.
