Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are very capable handsets, and brings an excellent set of specifications, but Samsung did miss out some features in the flagships such as the presence of a microSD card slot and water-resistance.
According to a new report, Samsung is expected to add the microSD card slot in the upcoming flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
Furthermore, the alleged handsets are expected to get IP67 certification which will make the devices water-resistant. The devices will also bring bigger batteries, according to a report from VentureBeat who were briefed by the company’s plan.
The report suggests the alleged Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will come with a 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch display respectively. This means the rumors we’ve heard about the bigger variant featuring 5.7-inch display may not be correct after all. As for the resolution, it will apparently feature the same 2560 by 1440 pixels Super AMOLED display.
The good news is that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will come with 3000 and 3600 mAh batteries, respectively which is a decent bump from the batteries on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.
VentureBeat’s source also confirmed that both devices will be powered by Exynos 8890 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 32/64gb of internal storage on board. Last but not the least, the camera module will be 12.2MP with a lower f/1.7 aperture to offset the lower megapixel count on the handset — we’ve already heard a rumor about the possibility of the 12MP camera on the handset.
Samsung is expected to launch the new flagships in February next month, but there’s no confirmation about it at the moment. We’ll update you as soon as we get any other information.
