AnTuTu listing reveals Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to feature 5.1-inch screen and 12-megapixel camera
Past reports have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a flat 5.2-inch screen, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a curved 5.5-inch screen. This is different from the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, which both sport 5.1-inch screens. A new listing on AnTuTu (first spotted on Chinese-speaking Weibo by French-speaking @NoWhereElseFR and renowned Samsung insider SamMobile) reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a 5.1-inch screen.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with 5.1-inch screen and 12-megapixel camera?
Shown above is a screenshot from the AnTuTu benchmark site. It shows the unannounced “SM-G935A,” which is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This version features a 5.1-inch screen (not a 5.5-inch screen) and is headed to US carrier AT&T.
Although a smaller screen that the previously rumoured 5.5-inch screen, the resolution is the same at 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The listing also reveals that the device rocks a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with an Adreno GPU under the hood, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. This isn’t surprising as the US and Chinese version is expected to feature the Snapdragon 820 CPU. The international version (version headed to the UK) is expected to feature the Samsung-made Exynos 8890 SoC.
Additionally, the listing reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge features a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera. This mirrors what we’ve been hearing in the past few months. Although this new sensor has a smaller megapixel count than the 16-megapixel sensor on board the Galaxy S6, is a 1/2″ sensor, which is a larger sensor S6’s camera. It is believed to be more ideal in low-light conditions.
Other rumours claim that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a new Samsung-made 20-megapixel RGBW-pixel Britecell camera. This new sensor is equally interesting as it is also said to come with improved light sensitivityand signal-to-noise ratio, thanks to the new RGBW pixel pattern.
Like any rumour, take this with a pinch of salt.
Only the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut in Barcelona, Spain on the 21st of February. It is yet to be determined when the larger Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus will be officially unveiled.
