Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is a 5.5-inch display handset which feels compact enough for one handed usage. That in itself talks about Samsung’s engineering prowess and the direction in which Samsung has taken its flagship S series forward.
The handset includes a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 QHD display with 577 PPI Super AMOLED display and the glass on top curves on both sides. Samsung has included an Always On display which displays notifications and time information, even when the handset is in standby mode.
The Galaxy S7 Edge brings back traditional samung features like IP68 water resistance, that enables it to stand in 1.5 meter deep water for 30 minutes, and MicroSD card support. The dual SIM slot used is a hybrid one, which means you can avail up to 2TB SD card storage if you can compromise on the second SIM.
Just like S7, there is a 12MP camera with wide F1.7 aperture and Smart OIS. Samsung claims the new camera can squeeze in 96 percent more light than Galaxy S6 camera for stellar low-light performance. The camera is also very quick to launch and has very fast focus speed. On the front side, there is a 5MP front-facing camera, also with wide f/1.7 aperture lens for good quality selfies.
The handset will be available with 2 different processor variants depending on the market. Choice will be between 2.2 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 820 processor and 2.3GHz Octa-Core Exynos 8 Octa 8890, each aided by 4GB LPDDR4 RAM along with 32GB/64GB storage.
Samsung Galaxy S7 edge adds curves to its glass rear, which lens it a firm grip and makes day-to-day handling easier. The scaled size also allows Samsung to fit in a larger 3600 mAh battery. Other features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS with GLONASS, USB 2.0 and NFC.
