The brand new Samsung S7 was released this week, Here’s a peek of what to expect.
To start with the most obvious, there will be two colors to choose from; Black Onyx and Gold Platinum. One of the biggest rumors that had been swirling around ended up being true; the new S7 really is waterproof. This means that it will survive splashes and spills, and will even survive a drop into a bucket of H20. While there were many rumors that the charging port would be a USB Type-C, Samsung surprisingly with the Micro USB 2.0 cable.
Samsung dropped a bomb regarding the new camera and it’s addition of duel pixel sensors. While the S7 camera has downgraded from 16mp to 12mp, the addition of f/1.7 aperture plus larger megapixels will allow for more light exposure, therefore resulting in a truer picture. The camera also features a quicker auto-focus, to cut down on those blurry pics. If you are a fan of selfies, there is still a front-facing camera for you to take those solo pics.
Perhaps the biggest news is that you will once again be able to expand your phone’s storage. Samsung did away with this feature with the S6, but it is back by popular demand. The S7 includes a micro SD card slot that will fit cards up to 200GB.
As for the phone’s physical design, the back has been curved, while the front of the phone stays in the same line as the S6. Samsung stayed with the 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED display that was featured on the S6; it was such a success on the previous phone, there is no reason to mess with success. Galaxy S7 edge will offer the dual edge 5.5”.
