For those of you that missed it, Samsung has announced their latest flagship phone: the Galaxy S7.
On the outside, you are looking at a 5.1-inch screen which has a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440
As far as the cameras you have a 12 megapixel (F 1.7) camera on the back and a 5 megapixel (F1.7) camera on the front.
One of the more interesting features is the active panoramic photo, where you can capture movement in your panoramic photo.
In terms of software, the Galaxy S7 will be running Android Marshmallow 6.0.
On the inside you are looking at 4GB of RAM. You also get 32GB of internal storage but you will be able add more storage if you want by way of a Micro SD card. This Micro SD can be up to 200GB in size.
On the inside you will either get an 8-core CPU (2.3GHz Quad + 1.6GHz Quad) or a quad-core CPU (2.15GHz Dual + 1.6GHz Dual).
The Galaxy S7 will pack a 3000mAh battery. Whilst we don’t know how long it will last, Samsung says that you will be able to watch an entire season of Game of Thrones on a single charge. The battery will also support fast battery charging, which will be perfect for those times when you need to give your phone a quick power boost.
So, when can you get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy S7? The answer is very soon. This is because the Galaxy S7 is coming out in Mid-March 2016. However, you can pre-order yours right now.
In terms of pricing, the Galaxy S7 will cost £569 for 32GB of storage and will come in either Black or Gold.
One of the more interesting things about the Samsung Galaxy S7 is the availability. If you decide to pre-order, you will get the Samsung Gear VR (Samsung’s virtual reality headset for their smartphones) for free. This is a clear sign that Samsung is pushing vritual reality and it’s no surprise as 2016 is already shaping up to be the year of virtual reality. With that being said, it’s basically very similar technology to Google’s cardboard virtual reality standard.
To me there is not much to write home about with the Galaxy S7. Sure, having a Micro SD card is a nice thing to have but that’s something that should have been there when Samsung released the Galaxy S5.
Whilst Motion Panorama is going to be interesting I don’t see that many people using it. In any case, the only way we will find is when the Galaxy S7 comes out in a little less than a month from now.
Will you be buying a Galaxy S7? If so, why? Let me know!
