When Did The Samsung S7 Come Out?

The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were unveiled on February 21, 2016, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Given the significant improvements that Samsung made to the Galaxy S6 family of smartphones the previous year, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are more of an evolution than a revolution. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge carry on the vision that Samsung presented to the world in 2015, while at the same time bringing back some of the features that had been absent and further refining the experience. Let’s take a brief look at what we can anticipate from the Galaxy S7 family. We have everything from Galaxy S7 specifications to a detailed feature list, as well as information on price and availability, and more.

Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge design

When Did The Samsung S7 Come Out?

When compared to the design of the Galaxy S6, the appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S7 doesn’t immediately scream “different,” at least not at first sight. The metal frame of the S7 and S7 Edge, which both have glass panels on the front and back, is shared by both of these smartphones. Both of these smartphones have large Super AMOLED panels, relatively thin bezels on the sides, and physical home buttons located below the displays, so it’s simple to discern that they were manufactured by Samsung from top to bottom.

On the rear of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the design is relatively similar to that of its predecessors; however, Samsung was able to reduce the prominence of the camera hump to only 0.46 millimetres this year. In addition, the backs of both feature edges that are rounded off ever so slightly, much as the Galaxy Note 5 did. Because of how much of an improvement this was in terms of handling with the Note 5, we are quite pleased to see that Samsung has included this design adjustment in the S7 and S7 Edge.

When compared to the Galaxy S6 Edge, which had a display that was the same size as the regular Galaxy S6 model, the curved display on the Galaxy S7 Edge is much larger at 5.5 inches in size. This really isn’t a terrible decision on Samsung’s side — the larger display on the S7 Edge is enough to separate it from the ordinary Galaxy S7, which means that people could have a somewhat easier time determining which device is appropriate for them. Aside from the modification to the design, the Galaxy S7 Edge sports bezels on the left and right sides that are much slimmer.

Aside from those very little alterations, there isn’t really all that much new here. On the underside of the device is a Micro USB connector located in the middle, a 3.5mm headphone jack located on the left, and a single speaker grill located on the right. The power button or the standby button is still located on the right side of each device, but the volume rockers are located on the left side of each device.

Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge Specs

The screen on the Samsung Galaxy S7 is 5.1 inches and has a Super AMOLED Quad HD display. The screen on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge measures 5.5 inches. Depending on the region, Samsung will equip the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 or a Samsung Exynos 8 Octa CPU. Both models will be available in both regular and edge versions. Regardless of the variant, each one comes with a memory capacity of 4 gigabytes.

Aside from that, they both have 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), 32 gigabytes of storage on-board, and, get this: microSD expansion! That’s right—with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung gave back the option for expandable storage. Fans of Samsung should be over the moon about the fact that the SIM 2 slot will support microSD cards with capacities of up to 200 gigabytes each.

For those power users who push their phones to the limit or are just really into heavy gaming, it is also worth mentioning that Samsung is stepping up its game (no pun intended) when it comes to maintaining the phone’s cool temperature despite intense use. These users push their phones to the limit in order to get the most out of them. How so? This time around, there is a copper pipe running next to the CPU that carries water. When the processor becomes heated from gaming or other hard operations, the water will flow down the pipe and cool it down.

The rear-facing cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge both have a resolution of 12 megapixels, an aperture of f/1.7, and a pixel size of 1.4 micrometres. As a point of reference, the rear cameras on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge both have a resolution of 16 megapixels, an aperture of f/1.9, and a pixel size of 1.12 micrometres. It is important to keep in mind that the number of megapixels a camera has is not the only factor to consider. The cameras on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be able to allow in 25 percent more light than the cameras on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.

Due to the fact that the S7 and S7 Edge are constructed almost entirely out of glass, Samsung made the decision not to include a detachable battery in either model. This decision shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. The battery in the Galaxy S7 is non-removable and has a capacity of 3000 mAh, whereas the battery in the Galaxy S7 Edge has a capacity of 3600 mAh. The fact that both are capable of Quick Charging as well as wireless charging is unquestionably a huge advantage.

Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge features

Always-on display functionality is included in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones, which is comparable to what is provided by the LG G5 smartphone. The lock screens may display a variety of helpful bits of information, like the time, a shortcut to the camera, alerts, the current weather, a percentage of the battery’s remaining charge, and more. It was just a matter of time until Samsung hopped on the bandwagon, and we are definitely pleased that the business is making excellent use of the Super AMOLED display.

Dust and water resistance is another another important characteristic that Samsung has reinstated in this year’s iteration of its flagship product line. Both the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge come with an IP68 classification, which means that each phone will be able to withstand a brief exposure to dust and a few drops of water. Additionally, in contrast to what is featured on the Galaxy S5, the two new phones do not have irritating covers that cover the ports in order to prevent dust or water from getting in.

Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge software

It should come as no surprise that both of them operate on a significantly modified version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Touchwiz overlay that has become synonymous with Samsung is still there in its entirety, despite the fact that it is quite evident that Samsung has made a concerted effort to improve the device’s overall performance.

One of the most significant updates to Touchwiz this year is one that some users may find to be a little bit strange. The application drawer may now be disabled if desired. There is an experimental option that can be located in the “Galaxy Labs” section of the settings that allows you to turn off the app drawer and instead place all of your apps on the homescreen. This is in contrast to the LG G5, which eliminates the app drawer entirely. However, the app drawer is still very much present here by default. It does not come as much of a surprise to learn that major original equipment manufacturers such as Samsung and LG are moving in this direction given the rumours that Android N would reportedly remove the application drawer entirely.

Aside from that, the user interface on the S7 seems almost same. However, in the S7 Edge, Samsung included a few unique and helpful edge features that take use of the device’s curved shape. Not only will you have fast access to the programmes you use most often, but Samsung has also included what it calls the Task Edge, which provides speedy shortcuts to a variety of activities like as sending text messages, among other things. The People Edge has also been brought back, providing you with convenient access to your most important connections. There are also additional areas for adding shortcuts to programmes that are not built into the system.
