Samsung’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ come with built-in wireless charging capability. Hence, it’s safe to assume that the upcoming S6 successor will also flaunt this feature. But then, a retailer in the U.K. has listed a wireless charging pad optimized for Samsung Galaxy S7 and its Edge variant.
Both Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be launched on Feb. 21, which is a day before the MWC 2016 event, and will reportedly hit the store shelves on Mar.11. Ahead of the imminent release, Clove U.K. has listed placeholders for the next iteration of Black and White wireless charging pads, tied to the model number “SAM-MWCP.”
The description of the device said the wireless pad will be optimized for the upcoming Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Plus, this gadget will be compatible with other handsets that support the Qi standard, GSM Arena reported.
Apart from the wireless charging feature, Samsung will apparently bring back the microSD card slot and removable battery in the Galaxy S7. Both the features were missing in the Galaxy S6 series. According to Latest reports, the handset’s battery unit will be able to offer 48 hours of battery life and 17 hours of continuous video playback with full brightness.
Other rumored Galaxy S7 specifications include a 5.1-inch display, bundled with 1440p resolution. Under the hood, it will come powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 chipsets. The chipset powering the device will be decided based on the region of release. On the software front, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS will run the device, out of the box.
A 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel secondary shooter will apparently be part of the handset. Speaking of memory, the S7 will come equipped with 64 GB of native storage space and will be backed by 4 GB of RAM.
In any case, readers are advised to take Galaxy S7-related details with the proverbial pinch of salt as Samsung has not confirmed any information so far.
