Following the leaked image of the flagship Galaxy S7, a live photo of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge is making rounds online.
Fresh photo uploaded by the credible tipster NWE (sourced from Weibo) shows the curvy front of the Galaxy S7 Edge. The live screen of the handset lists the results of the AnTuTu benchmark test performance. The model number of this Edge variant is believed to be “SM-G935.”
Spec-wise, past rumors suggested that the Galaxy S7 edge will carry a 5.5-inch AMOLED display and a QHD resolution. Similar to the flagship device, this variant will also be powered by both Exynos 8890 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, depending on the market of release.
This handset will apparently be backed by a killer 4 GB of RAM. On the software front, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS will run the phone with custom TouchWiz UI on top of it.
When it comes to camera specification, a 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing sensor with f/1.7 aperture has been tipped. The front-facing shooter is believed to be either a 5 or 8-megapixel sensor.
The S7 Edge will come equipped with 32 or 64 GB of native storage space, along with a microSD card slot to facilitate memory expansion. A bigger 3,600 mAh battery unit will apparently help keep the lights on.
Lastly, a recent report said, Samsung will feature “Always-On Display” in its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices. This has been confirmed by the USPTO filing.
GSM Arena, meanwhile, says the Always-On Display feature will work in the same way as the Nokia Windows Phone. However, Samsung’s AMOLED screens will reportedly help in not wasting a lot of power and become a burden on the battery. This is achieved by lighting up only the “pixels that are actively showing something” to the user.
