The new Galaxy S7 series is rumored to arrive with water resistant features. Since there are less than a couple of weeks until Samsung’s major MWC 2016 launch planned for Feb 21, it appears that fans already created a fairly clear image of what this company will show during that day: its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagship phones.
These new models are expected to achieve the same success as the current Galaxy S6 line, arriving with big improvements and changes A few weeks ago, people noticed a rumor according to which, as opposed to the Samsung Galaxy S6 line, both the next S7 and S7 Edge could be waterproof, this bringing back one of the important features found in the S5 models from 2014.
Even if we cannot be completely sure that Samsung’s S7 line will indeed have water-resistance elements, the latest news from several monitoring websites that often show information about upcoming smart phones seem to confirm this speculation.
These results display several waterproof elements, along with the SIM plate and a mic, made for Samsung’s SM-G930 (the code for Galaxy S7 models) and SM-G935 (or the S7 Edge). Probably, water-resistant here does not truly mean fully waterproof, but only a phone that can endure some splashes.
So, you still must be careful when you bring your device close to water, but you should have no problem as long as you do not drop it into a puddle for a ;longer time. A few weeks ago, these online sources also listed the display dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and its bigger sibling: 5.1” and 5.5”, respectively.
Not surprisingly, both displays will feature the company’s Super AMOLED technology, providing a Quad HD resolution of 2560 by 1440. Based on market where they will be sold, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge models should be operated by either a Snapdragon 820 chipset or Samsung’s proprietary Exynos 8890 processor.
Other rumored functions consist of 4GB of RAM, the always-on screen mode, a huge battery power and new and improved 12MP back cameras with bigger sensors for enhanced picture quality in lower light environments.
The Edge version will arrive built with 32 and 64GB of internal storage, along with the microSD card port to allow for memory expansion. The larger 3,600-mAh capacity of its battery will obviously help to get through a day of intense usage.
When it comes to design, both the S7 and S7 Edge versions appear to have taken many elements from today’s Galaxy S6 series, including the sturdy aluminum frames, even if it seems that their back covers will sport a more curved shape similar to that of a Galaxy S3.
