Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd has announced the newest additions to the Galaxy family of products - Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. These new models feature enhanced design, higher-quality camera, refined software functionality, and connectivity to a galaxy of services, products and experiences.
“We believe in a world that is brighter, sharper, more convenient, and more fun. We strive to deliver on that vision with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge by marrying elegant design with functionality and providing a seamless mobile experience,” said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “We empower consumers with technology to help them get more out of life and will continue to push the frontier of what’s possible.”
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are built with advanced smartphone cameras. The main, rear camera sensor captures 95 percent more light through a wider aperture and larger pixels to deliver brighter and sharper images, even in low light. With the first ever Dual Pixel sensor in a smartphone camera, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge autofocus on an image quicker and more accurately than other leading smartphones, allowing you capture moments even in dim light.
With a curved-glass back and slim ergonomic body, the 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 and the 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 edge are easier to hold in one hand and fit in your pocket or purse. The Galaxy S7 edge features curved glass on all sides of the device, giving users a unique dual-edge display and bigger screen than the Galaxy S7. The larger edge panel on the Galaxy S7 edge gives users more space for apps to make it easier to select and swipe through the different screens with one-hand. The new Tasks edge screen offers one-tap access to applications, functions and news, such as contacts, selfie mode or calendar, always accessible.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge sport a Super AMOLED, Always-On Display which allows users to take short, quick peeks at basic information like the time, calendar or notifications without touching or waking the screen. Always-On Display intelligently turns off when your phone is tucked away in your pocket or purse and out of sight.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are made both water resistant and dust resistant (IP68 certification) with no compromises to the seamless design and making them life-proof to accidental spills3.
From launching apps to playing games to streaming video, everything happens faster and smoother on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, thanks to a new, improved, more powerful and more efficient CPU and GPU.
The phones will have boosted battery capacity of 3,000 mAh for the Galaxy S7 and 3,600 mAh for the Galaxy S7 edge, with both fast wireless and wired charging available.
Additionally, the hybrid SIM card tray allows users to insert a microSD card for up to 200GB of additional storage.
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge users also get the best mobile payment service with Samsung Pay. It is secure, easy-to-use and accepted almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card. Protected by Samsung KNOX7, fingerprint scanning and advanced tokenization, Samsung Pay works with NFC (Near Field Communication) and MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission), making mobile payments available to more merchants and consumers than ever before.
Samsung Smart Switch offers a simple, quick way for users to switch to the new Samsung devices. Whether upgrading an Android device or switching from another platform, Smart Switch allows you to easily transfer content to your new phone via wireless or USB connection. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will include a USB connector in the box for a seamless transfer of content from your old device.
Samsung KNOX makes the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge advanced, enterprise-ready devices with built in defense grade security, right out of the box. Unlike other mobile security platforms, KNOX is anchored in the device’s hardware, and protects the device from the moment it boots up all the way through launching an app.
