Zauba confrims screen sizes
The Zauba listing (screenshot above) was first spotted by Hungarian-speaking NapiDroid.hu. Zauba, India’s import-export database, has been the source of information on yet to be announced devices, since manufacturers send prototypes to India for testing.
The listing reveals that 2 units of the SM-G930R4 (believed to be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7) and 2 units of the SM-G935R4 (believed to be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) have been sent to India “for testing.” It also confirms the devices’ screen sizes. It reveals that the S7 will measure 5.1 inches, while the S7 Edge will measure 5.5 inches.
Aside from the model numbers and screen sizes, the listing reveals that the IMEI numbers have been withheld and that two are valued at approximately £245. It’s a dead cert, however, that the two will be more expensive when they are available in stores.
Here’s what we’ve learned so far. Samsung is said to be planning to use two different processors depending on the market. Units headed to the US and China are said to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the international version (version headed to the UK and everywhere else) will feature Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC. The S7 and S7 Edge are expected to rock 4 GB of RAM. In the photography department, the Korean tech giant’s next flagship is expected to feature a new and larger 12-megapixel rear-facing camera that is ideal for snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. Unlike the S6 and the S6 Edge, the S7 and S7 Edge are said to feature a microSD card slot for additional storage options. As for design, the two are said to look a lot like their predecessors.
So when do we get to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge? The two are expected to make their official debut on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain (a day before MWC 2016 kicks off), and launch soon after their unveiling.
