There is no doubt that Samsung Galaxy S7 is currently the most anticipated Smartphone for this year’s Mobile World Congress. The world will see the live premiere within less than a week, but what to expect from the new flagship?

What to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge


Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Similar styling to its predecessor

Certainly little surprising design. All signs in the heaven and the earth indicate that the Galaxy S7 will resemble visually Galaxy S6. Samsung went for metal and rounded edges is a solution pleasing to the eye, we would therefore be met with S6 / S6 edge again in terms of look.

Galaxy S7 capacious battery?

Why Samsung would have to decide something like that? For example, for greater capacity of the battery they would characterize it in the new model capacity of 3000 mAh, and if needed, they can increase it with few extra millimeters, but it will increase the thickness of smartphone, but it should not disturb anyone.

The new smartphone will also support USB Type C, but the biggest question is that will new flagship device support replaceable battery? It’s a big puzzle.

Performance at the highest level

You can be sure that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be at launch one of the most powerful smartphones. Some time ago the manufacturer boasted Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor, and this processor will drive a new flagship. At least in some markets, because very likely there is a second version of the smartphone with almost same specification, but different processor. It is difficult for any other option rather than the Snapdragon 820. Especially when prototypes with the same processor have already been tested.

The flagship device will feature 4Gb RAM. More puzzling is the question of internal memory. There are conflicting reports because it is not clear whether the manufacturer will return to the microSD card slot. If not, there are only two possible versions – 64 and 128 GB. If there is a microSD slot, then they might also offer variant with 32 GB internal space.

Super AMOLED Display, Fingerprint Reader, and Waterproof?


The Super AMOLED screen here is the only certain element, its diagonal and resolution should be 5,1 – 5,2 “Quad HD.

Do all of the above elements are enclosed in a water-resistant design? It seemed the least likely, but the final video presented by Samsung Indonesia again gives hope that the Galaxy S7 is not scared to even rain.

Possible specifications of Galaxy S7 S7 Edge:

  • Operating System: Android 6.0 Marshmallow with TouchWiz overlay
  • Super AMOLED screen 5,1-5,2 “Quad HD resolution
  • Processor: Exynos 8890 / Snapdragon 820
