Samsung Galaxy S7 said to feature less-visible camera hump
Past reports claimed that the camera hump on board the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be non-existent in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, meaning the camera of the S7 and S7 Edge will be flush with the devices’ rear surface. A new tweet claims that there will still be a camera hump, but it won’t be as noticeable as before.
Less-visible camera hump
The diagram above was leaked by Steve Hemmerstoffer on Twitter. The image compares the camera hump of the Samsung Galaxy S7 to that on the Samsung Galaxy S6, revealing that the camera on board the Galaxy S7 will add an insignificant 0.8 mm to the thickness of the device, compared to the rather significant 1.7 mm camera hump of the Galaxy S6.
According to past reports, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). In the camera department, a new 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera that is said to be more ideal in snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat is expected to be on board. Despite the lower megapixel count, this larger 12-megapixel sensor is expected to be an upgrade of the 16-megapixel snapper of the Galaxy S6. The two are also said to feature a reversible USB Type-C port, which means faster charging, faster data charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the connector the wrong way ever again. The S7 and the S7 Edge are said to feature microSD card slots and IP67 certifications, which were not on board their predecessors. Under the hood is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC for markets such as the US and China, and a Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC for international markets (including the UK). 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will make their official debut on the 21st of February at its Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona, Spain.
