The pair combine sleek design with powerful performance alongside three key new features; an advanced camera, water resistance, and the return of external memory.
You may have seen the poor-lighting conditions advert on TV, where a man is photographed in a dark environment and camera returns a near perfect image. This is owed to the first Dual Pixel camera on a smartphone, with a brighter f/1.7 lens courtesy of a wider aperture, and bigger pixel, the camera also has a faster shutter speed and a more accurate autofocus even in low-light conditions.
Design and Function
The 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 and 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 edge are constructed with 3D glass and metal in a handsome, durable design with ergonomic curves. The device’s new Always-On Display, gives a simplified, zero touch experience negating the need to worry about missing a call, important notifications and easy view of the time and date, all without needing to wake the phone up.
Both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have IP68 water and dust resistance. Edge UX on the Galaxy S7 edge, provides convenience and increased efficiency by creating easy shortcuts to functions such as email, selfie mode, panorama mode or third party applications.
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge posses quick wired and wireless charging technology. Additionally, the hybrid SIM card tray allows for a microSD card of up to 200GB for additional storage, alongside 32GB internal and in some select countries, the tray can be used with a dual SIM card. It’s also worth nothing, there is a more powerful processor and bigger battery capacity for heavy gamers or heavy phone users.
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will be available in mid-March 2016, in black, gold, silver and white colour-ways.
