Samsung Galaxy S7 Release Date,Features And Specfication
Galaxy S7 Release Date
Samsung Mobiles will be launching the same in the Indian markets on 8th of March 2016. There are two variants of S7 and S7 edge – Snapdragon 820 quad core powered or Exynos 8 octa core powered, probably the Indian markets will get the Exynos version.
According to the source, the Galaxy S7 will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, while the phone will sport IP67 or IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. The 12-megapixel shooter (larger pixels, probably BRITECELL tech) will be placed on the back of the device, according to this leak, and a 3,000mAh battery will be available on the inside. The source also claims that the phone will offer microSD card expansions, and that the Type-C uSB port won’t e present here. That is pretty much it as far as newly leaked specs go, but there’s plenty more info available here.
The source has also shared some hands-on images with the device that they’ve received from a third-party source, and same goes for the video footage you can check out below this article. If you take a look at the gallery or the video down below, you’ll get to see what seems to be the Galaxy S6, and even a part of its TouchWiz UI. This leak actually goes hand-in-hand to what we’ve seen thus far, the phone resembles its predecessor quite a bit, and the camera hump is significantly less pronounced this time around. The phone is made out of metal and glass, and the images and video down below give us probably the best look at the device thus far. You can also notice that the phone is curved on the back, much like the Galaxy Note 5, which should help with the grip, make the phone feel more comfortable in the hand.
The Galaxy S7 will be fueled by the Exynos 8890 or Snapdragon 820 SoC, both variants will be available, at least according to what we’ve seen thus far. The device will ship with 4GB of RAM on the inside, and a number of different internal storage models will be available, as always.
Galaxy S7 Features
Samsung took software in a much improved direction starting with the Galaxy S6, but recent rumors suggest that this is only the beginning. Reportedly Samsung is working with Google engineers to optimize TouchWiz to levels that will “rival iOS”. While that’s a pretty lofty claim, the idea of an even faster, smoother TouchWiz is certainly an appealing one. As for what else we can expect?
Samsung Pay and the fingerprint sensor will make a return, probably in improved forms. In terms of new stuff, one Chinese source claims that Samsung will integrate Synaptics’ ClearForce technology, a force-sensing solution. If that’s accurate, Samsung may be taking another page from Apple’s book – 3D Touch. Synaptics announced that ClearForce will be arriving in smartphones in early 2016, but for now, we are taking this report with a big grain of salt. Incidentally or not, Samsung has a patent on a force sensing implementation.
On December 14, WSJ reported that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will indeed feature a pressure sensing display. The publication did not specify whether this technology is supplied by Synaptics or other vendor. Another feature that could be made available on some versions of the phone is retina scanning. This feature analyzes the pattern of the blood vessels in the retina, which is unique to every person. The report suggests this retina scanning feature could be similar with the feature found on some ZTE devices called Eyeprint ID. This uses the front camera to scan the retina. To be clear, this feature is not set in stone, and Samsung may choose not to include it.

Galaxy S7 Price
Finalised pricing for the Samsung Galaxy S7 is still a long way from being confirmed. According to early reports, however, it could be easier on your wallet than past models. Not cheap, still, but 10% less expensive than the S6’s £599 asking price.
According to early leaks, the S7 price will be €700 on day one. That’s £541 as a straight conversion – although that’s more likely to be £549 or even £579 when UK premiums are added into the fray.
Although Galaxy S7 pricing is expected to be down slightly on last year’s efforts, if you’re keen on the phone, you might want to start saving your pennies now.
