Now, I have new update of 2016 by Samsung is, after Barcelona, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will reach India by 8 March. Samsung had already confirmed that by likely march 8, 2016 consumers will be able to preorder the phones. Also, there is a hint that Galaxy S7 comes near around INR Rs. 50,000 and for Galaxy S7 edge we have to pay approx. 5-6 thousand more.
Samsung has impressed us a lot with two great smartphones Samsung Galaxy Note5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ by making them public in 2015. Will Samsung be able to attract us by Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge in 2016?
Samsung always chooses its tradition of announcement and before releasing its phones, an official announcement for that phone is made by the company at MWC (mobile world congress). MWC 2016 will take place from 22 February to 25 February in Barcelona.
Samsung is prepping to launch its all the handsets of S7 series on the same day and time. And it is being aired that the S7 series will be released in March 2016
But this time Samsung is not going to announce the release date of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge+ at an independent event rather than MWC.
In these days many companies are trying to make themselves strong by bringing good performing as well as high features phones, so it’s the biggest challenge for Samsung to do something different and advanced from them.
Apple is also going to launch its many iPhones, but its focus is only for two, which are iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which will also emerge as high competitor for Samsung’s smartphones.
Samsung’s A series and J series is also there and are trying to compete with low price segment smartphones, which are bringing similarities with other low specs smartphones.
But the questionable thing is that, will Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge come before Apple’s iPhones (2016) or after? Lets see it.
Reports say that this handset has already been tested by AT&T, which accelerated its release date rumors.
Its Shape, Display Size and Design
Samsung wants to introduce an ultra slim design through S7 series handsets.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is expected to feature a dual-edged curved display with Quad HD resolution.
As far as display size is concerned, it is expected to possess 5.5 inches display size.
According to WSJ claimed that S7 series handsets are going to feature pressure sensitive screen similar to Apple’s 3D Touch display.
As it has become very indispensable to keep the handset away from being wet for this it is going to be featured with some extra protection, which will enable the phone to protect itself from being wet.
Yes like the Sony’s handsets this will also be water and dust resistant.
