We’re expecting the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to make their official debut soon. This said, two different authorities have certified the devices and their accessories.
FCC- and Postel-approved
The Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and their LED View Cover cases have recently been spotted getting certified by the US FCC and Indonesia’s Postel. The listings show unannounced devices with model numbers “SM-G930” and “SM-G935,” which are believed to belong to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge respectively. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge bear the model numbers “SM-G920″ and SM-G925” respectively.
According to past rumours that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen. As for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, past reports claimed that the device would feature a 5.5-inch screen, while a more recent report claimed that the device would feature a 5.1-inch curved screen. We’ve also recently learned that the two could be water proof, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. In the photography department, some reports claim that the S7 will feature Samsung’s new larger 12-megapixel sensor than the 16-megapixel sensor on board the Galaxy S6, while some reports claim that the S7 will feature Samsung’s new 20-megapixel BRITECELL sensor. The two are said to be more ideal in low-light conditions. Its front-facing camera is expected to be a 5-megapixel snapper. As far as design goes, the S7 will look a lot like its predecessor. Unlike the S6, the S7 is said to have a microSD card slot on board. Under the hood is expected to be two different processors, depending on the market. The US- and China-bound Galaxy S7 is expected to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while units of international markets such as the UK are expected to rock Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC. Both CPUs have allegedly done exceptionally well in various benchmark tests.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut at Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event, which kicks off on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain. The two are also said to be released on the same month.
