After many years making mobile phones, Samsung finally built a rugged and stylish equipment to honor its brand: the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. Now that we've seen what Korean is capable of doing, the world is excited about the news that your new flagship could have: the Samsung Galaxy S7.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 will be the company's next smartphone, an update of the two previous models: the S6 and the S6 Edge. But what should we know first about this new terminal?
In the first place, the GalaxyS7 is expected to be announced during the MWC 2016 that will take place between February 22 and 25. Second, the news. Although not many differences are expected at the level of exterior design, It is rumored that we could see 4K screens, a possible return to Qualcomm processors and the incorporation of Android Marshmallow. Here are some other details.
Buy the Galaxy S7
Samsung's annual release schedule suggests we can expect your next mobile goes on sale in April 2016. It is difficult to talk about a specific date, since the shipping dates may vary a few weeks, but all accounts indicate that April is the indicated month. This means that logically we should see the mobile phone well before that date and it could be during the MWC 2016 at the end of February.
However, although Samsung has traditionally launched its Galaxy devices during the MWC, what happened with the launch of the Galaxy Note 5 raises some doubts. The Korean was in the habit of launching the Note at the IFA in early September, but unlike previous models, the fifth generation of the device was launched at a separate event in early August.
This change may indicate that the company wants to take distance from electronic fairs and launch its products under its own terms, as Apple does. If so, we will know at the end of February next year when the MWC takes place, when we will confirm if the debut of the Galaxy S7 is made at the fair or at a separate event.
Honestly, many changes in the exterior design of the Galaxy S7 are not expected and a look very similar to that of the Galaxy S6 is expected. Last year Samsung went through a deep redesign process and it makes sense that the company, having achieved an excellent result, continues to work with the same design without making many dramatic changes.
However, one of the things that could change is the computer screen, which is not yet known if they will be the same as those of the S6 and the S6 Edge. On the other hand, there has also been talk of the possible incorporation of a much stronger glass panel. The Korean KBench website claims to have discovered a Samsung request for a new type of glass cover called Turtle Glass, which is supposed to be much more robust than the Corning Gorilla Glass, which is currently used in the S6 and in many other smart phones high end
In addition to this, the inews24.com site has also reported that the S7 may incorporate a new magnesium-based alloy chassis to further strengthen the structure of the equipment, which could help to have a better heat dissipation and a lighter mobile. These features indicate that durability is one of the areas in which Samsung wants to focus on these new devices.
The S6 and the S6 Edge have a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels and the new Galaxy generation is likely to include the same size. The question in this case is whether Samsung whether or not to bet finally on the 4K screen with a resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels.
Certainly the company has the technology to do it, but it is difficult to imagine what benefits it could bring. With this screen size, the extra resolution will be not noticeable but the screen will need more power and therefore consume more battery.
Sony just launched the Xperia Z5 Premium, but it is really a bit difficult to perceive a real difference between a 4K screen and a 1440p. The Z5 Premium doesn't even show the 4K resolution all the time, so its benefits are only perceived in photos and videos. Although it is not yet known if Samsung also incorporate these types of screens in its new equipment, what we know is that the Korean has kept an eye on the popularity of the Sony terminal.
Galaxy S7 processor
Although it is still too early to know, according to some leaked documents, the new Samsung Galaxy S7 could incorporate the MSM8996 CPU, which will be the code name of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. For those who are thinking that this information does not make sense, since Samsung decided using their own Exynos chips on the Galaxy S6, they should know what JK Shin, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics, said.
We have to use the best machines to make our products competitive, which is why we have decided to use our own chips. But we could use Qualcomm products again in the next Galaxy mobile, he said.
While it is true that this is not a concrete proof of anything, the fact that Samsung has not completely ruled out using Qualcomm processors says much. The Korean is likely to try her own chips and Qualcomm's chips to finally choose the one with the best performance.
Having planned that Samsung does not make drastic changes in the design of the S7, compared to the S6, it is very likely that we will see the same battery incorporated in the previous generation, which will be 2,550mAh for the S7 and 2,600mAh for the S7 Edge. A new processor will make the equipment more efficient, so the battery will last longer than previous models.
Due to the design, it is unlikely that we will see the return of removable batteries in these equipment. It is also expected that the new Galaxy can be charged wirelessly and through the USB port with a fast charging technology.
Galaxy S7 camera
At the moment, there is very little information about the camera that these devices will incorporate, although rumors suggest that Samsung could incorporate a 16MP sensor in its new equipment.
Samsung has announced that it has developed a much smaller sensor than the Galaxy S6, which means that the company could finally end the protrusion of the lens on the back of the mobile, thus achieving a much thinner design.
This section is quite obvious. Google recently announced Android Marshmallow, so you don't have to be a genius to know that Samsung use the new operating system on the Galaxy S7. In the S6 the Korean better some aspects of the previous versions of Android, so the company is expected to follow the same pattern with Marshmallow.
Samsung is likely to incorporate the USB-C port on the Galaxy S7. This new type of port, first seen on the new 12-inch MacBook, provides greater speed and power than any USB standard that exists. But, thanks to the fact that the new terminals have a wireless charging system and the little need to connect a Galaxy smartphone via cable, the USB-C port, although interesting, is not essential.
New Galaxy equipment is expected are sold in 32/64 / 128GB models Internal storage Due to the design of the terminals, Samsung is unlikely to re-incorporate microSD card slots, although it is undoubtedly a feature that many people have mentioned.
