The release of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is getting closer and it’s time to wrap up some of the recent rumors.
According to rumors, the design of S7 will be very similar to the S6. Some rumors are suggesting a rounded back and leaked renders are supporting that. It also looks like the camera hump will be smaller as the S7 is going to use the new 12MP Britecell camera sensor.
Display size for the normal S7 is going to stay the same at 5.1″ but the S7 Edge is probably getting a 5.5″ display. We are also hearing about a possible S7 Plus model with a 5.7″ or 6″ display. All displays are still going to support QHD resolution, so no 4K here yet.
There are more news under the hood as apparently there will be two versions again, a Snapdragon version and an Exynos version. Antutu has leaked the hardware specifications of both models and the SoC seems to be the only difference. The S7 is going to have 4GB of DDR4 RAM and both models have 64GB of storage and there is no sign of 32GB model yet, so 64GB might be the standard.
It looks like Samsung is going a bit conservative this year. Last year Galaxies were very good, only problem being the battery life. As the hardware design is pretty stable, they have had the time and resources to concentrate on improving the UI and optimization so that the new flagships might improve greatly on smoothness and battery life.
