So its that time of a year again where big companies like Samsung and LG announce their new flagships, Mobile World Congress. Today at MWC, Samsung announced their new flagships, the S7 and S7 Edge, and lets just say they are great. Samsung really set their standards really high this year and these phones are absolute killer!
The design for these devices stayed pretty much the same. They still have that glass back and aluminum sides as its older brother the Samsung Galaxy S6. One thing that has changed though, is the S7 actually got a tad slimmer, while the S7 Edge actually got a tad thicker then the S6 Edge. As for the back of the phones, they added the curvature on both sides (as seen on the note 5) that will make it much easier for you to hold and more comfortable in the hands — as opposed to the “sharp” edges on the S6. The colors for the S7 have also changed a bit. The new S7 has Black Onyx, White Pearl, and Gold Platinum as color options, while the S7 Edge comes in Black onyx, Gold Platinum, and Sliver Titanium. The screens now also have these rounded edges, which should improve the user experience when using this device. Lastly, Samsung now made their S7/S7 Edge water resistant, which was unfortunately left out on the S6. Even though this device is IP68 certified, they still did a great job design-wise by not adding that plastic back and sides that was seen on the S5 and S6 Active.
Both devices are rocking a Snapdragon 820 processor with 32Gb of internal storage, but now if you need more space you have the option to expand that with the included microSD card hiding in the Sim tray. They both also have 4gb of ram and sport a 12MP wide-angel rear facing camera paired with a 5MP front facing camera. The S7 has a 5.1 quad-HD, Super Amoled display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 (577ppi) and the S7 Edge has a 5.5 quad-HD, Super Amoled display with the resolution of 2560 by 1440 (534ppi) . As for the battery they the S7 has a 3,000mAh battery, while S7 Edge has a bigger, beefier 3,600mAh battery.
Both devices will ship out with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, of course along with Samsung’s Touchwiz interface. We have seen though, starting last year, how Touchwiz is getting lighter and more stock-y.
That’s pretty much it, definitely stay tune for more updates and please let us know your guy’s thoughts on these new devices. Were interested to hear your thoughts down below in the comment section.
