Samsung Electronics recently announced the launch of its flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, which retails in India for Rs. 48,900 and Rs. 56,900 respectively. Pegged at being Samsung’s most powerful phone yet, it boasts of a sleek new design, improved specs, a superior quality camera and software upgrades that are unparalleled.
While there are a tonne of new features, we look at 5 Features To Know About The Samsung Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge:
1. 3D Glass And Metal Design
The 5.1 inch Galaxy S7 and 5.5 inch Galaxy S7 edge are made up of 3D glass and metal. For consumers who have not experienced the S6, they will be delighted with how light the phones actually are. The S7 edge features curves on both sides with an “always-on display” that gives users the comfort of checking SMSs and missed calls without having to even touch the phone. It comes with an improved Force touch display with TouchWIZ UI which gives you a more personalized experience on the phone and a sturdy Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to brace a fall from a height.
2. Larger Memory
If you love storing a whole lot of media on your phone in the form of music, videos or images then the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will be your perfect companion! Both phones come with a 4 GB RAM and are available with 32 GB and 64 GB variants of internal storage. The phones have a hybrid nano sim and microSD card slot which means the user can either use it as a dual sim or then as a sim + micro SD, but the best part is that the phone supports a 200 GB expandable memory which means you will never have to delete anything!
3. Superior Camera
Move over DSLRs, make way for the Galaxy S7! The rear camera comes with a 12 mega-pixel Canon Dual Pixel technology that makes it extremely effective in low-light shooting, by using every pixel in the sensor for phase-detection and a wider aperture of f/1.7. Clicking selfies in the dark also won’t be a problem because of the superior 5 mega pixel front camera that also has an enhanced aperture f/1.7 lens. A slightly gimmicky camera feature in the Motion Panorama which adds motion to the traditional panorama images.
4. Water And Dust Resistant
If you’re the type who has always wanted to take an underwater selfie, then the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are just for you! Both phones are IP68 certified and use capless waterproofing technology, which means that they can survive immersed underwater for 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5 metres. Not just water, they also keep dust away!
5. Battery Life
We spend most of our time on our smartphones using applications that literally suck the life out of our phone battery. We’ve never felt the importance of carrying a charger along with you or a battery back-up as much as now. That being said, the Galaxy S7 comes with a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery while the S7 edge has a 3,600 mAh battery. This will allow you to listen to 70 hours of music, watch 18 hours of video and talk for literally the whole day i.e. 24 hours.
Not just that, both phones’ batteries have superfast charging abilities. A full-charge will take 90 minutes (wired) or 120 minutes (wireless).
