Mobile World Congress is almost upon us and in a few day’s time, Samsung will be unveiling the successor to the Galaxy S6 – the Samsung Galaxy S7. There have been a lot of rumours and leaks of the device, but this particular one which was uncovered by Android Authority includes images of the Galaxy S7 sporting a microSD card slot – complete with a video of the flagship smartphone.
Obtained through an insider, these leaked information also include partial specifications of the new smartphone. One of them being the sensor for Galaxy S7’s main camera which has much lower resolution than Galaxy S6 at 12MP. To make up for it though, the camera will have larger pixels similar to those found on the Nexus 6P and 5X.
Apart from the lower-res camera and a microSD card slot, the Galaxy S7 is also more or less confirmed to have an IP68/67 rating as well as a 2,800mAh battery which is rather small by today’s standard for flagship phones. It is still bigger than Galaxy S6’s 2,550 mAh though, so we expect some improvement on that front from Galaxy S7 which also runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. For those of you that are wondering, the device apparently doesn’t come with a USB Type-C port.
In addition to all the info above, the images that Android Authority has obtained generally showed that the Galaxy S7 physical design is identical to previous renders that were leaked by popular leaker, Evleaks. Same goes for the video which also shows the homescreen and Flipboard integration as well:
After going through such an extensive look of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S7, what do you think? Is this really the Galaxy S7? Is this yet another win for Samsung? We’ll find out once MWC 2016 starts in Barcelona next week.
