Samsung Galaxy S7 would most probably be unveiled in February 2016 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Galaxy S6 didn’t prove to be as big a hit as its predecessors were. But what we’ve heard so far, it can be expected that the upcoming version Samsung Galaxy would be a major hit in the market.
First of all, it is expected that S7 would be dumping practical features like its removable batteries and expandable storage to give way to an extremely thin body and fashionable body glass backs. This means that you may no longer connect your SD card with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 or remove it’s battery.
Apart from this, there are rumors that, unlike its predecessors, the Galaxy S7 would come in, not two, but four different models. According to a highly reliable source, SamMobile, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will go by the model numbers: ‘SM-G930’ and ‘SM-G935’ respectively, but they will be split into two further distinct groups: Qualcomm Snapdragon and Samsung Exynos.
It was expected earlier that Samsung would completely ditch Qualcomm, when they had decided to road test their Exynos chips by equipping them in phones in its native South Korea. However, the release of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 most probably prompted Samsung to change its plans.
It’s also expected that Samsung would be launching its revolutionary new camera with Galaxy S7. At an investor conference in Korea, the tech giant announced that they have invented a new camera, which they call BRITECELL, that excels in taking pictures under darker conditions.
BRITECELL eliminates the use of the traditional Bayer filter layout used in most smartphone cameras. This is a filter that turns pixels into green and blocks light from hitting the sensors, making photos darker. However, the new camera trades these green pixels for white ones, which allow more light to flow through the lens making the photos more brighter.
The new camera will also be 17% thinner than other cameras, which would allow the phone to be thinner as well. Samsung has also revealed its “Smart WDR” feature, which is similar to HDR, as it takes multiple shots from the camera and the software then combines them, creating a stable, color-bright photo.
There are rumors that a “Premium Edition” of Galaxy S7 is also under way, which would initially be reserved for the Asian market. It could have a 4K display as well as a 14-core processor. Witch such major changes under way, we can be expect that Samsung Galaxy S7 would be a major hit, just like its predecessors were.
