A video and photos of the Samsung Galaxy S7, which will be unveiled this Sunday, have surfaced online showing the device like never before.
Android Authority, citing an anonymous insider, has uploaded a video presenting the front and the back of the Galaxy S7 in Black hue. The leak also confirms some of the key specifications of the handset.
For instance, the water proofing feature rumored for quite some time now is apparently true, although there’s no information available to ascertain whether the rating in question is IP 67 or IP 68.
Technically, the IP 67 certification translates to the ability of the device to withstand 30 minutes of submersion under 1 meter depth of water. The IP 68, on the other hand, comes with the capability to endure continuous submersion to a depth quoted by the OEM, GSM Arena reported.
When it comes to camera configuration, the handset will apparently sport a 12-megapixel sensor. However, the now-famous USB Type-C port will not be part of the Galaxy S7 series.
Having taken the user feedback of S6 seriously, Samsung will feature a microSD card slot to facilitate memory expansion in the Galaxy S7. But then, the removable battery cell will apparently not make a comeback this time around.
In any case, Samsung has reportedly improved the capacity of the battery to 2,800 mAh from 2,550 mAh in the predecessor Galaxy S6. On the software front, as expected, Android 6.0 Marshmallow will run the phone along with TouchWiz UI.
The video attached below shows the latest version of the TouchWiz UI. One thing is very clear from the video that the Galaxy S7 will be prone to fingerprints from the word go.
