By the way, this post is also helpful for those guys who are scratching their heads and trying to decide which one they should buy, Galaxy S7, S7 Edge or S6.
Tip: Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are now available for preorder on the official site, and will be released on Friday, March 11.
Samsung Galaxy S7 specs: design
While putting Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6 in front of you, you can easily notice that they look very similar. But there are still some differences. Compared with S6, S7 is more comfortable to hold, has a flatter fingerprint scanner and a less pronounced camera hump. But the major difference is that Samsung Galaxy S7 has a microSD card slot to increase memory. So does S7 Edge.
Samsung Galaxy S7 specs: display
Following Samsung Galaxy S6, S7 is also armed with a 5.1-inch QHD (2560x1440 pixels) screen. And Galaxy S7 Edge has a larger curved screen with 5.5 inches and 1440x2560 pixels. What's more, both S7 and S7 edge feature Corning Gorilla Glass and Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, and support Multitouch.
Samsung Galaxy S7 specs: camera
Both Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 cameras come with 12MP on the back and 5MP on the front. It seems a regression, since S6 has a 16MP rear camera. Despite of lower specs, the new cameras of S7 and S7 Edge get improved with dual-pixel technology which can increase image clarity despite of the lower pixel numbers. What's more, S7 also supports 4K video recording, just like Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6/6S series.
Samsung Galaxy S7 specs: memory
The new Galaxy S7 will be available in 32GB and 64GB, and most importantly its storage can be expanded to 200GB via a microSD card. Additionally, it will run 4GB of RAM. S7 Edge also runs the same memory. Thus, users can download many movies to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge for later viewing.
Samsung Galaxy S7 specs: supported video audio formats
Video formats: MP4, M4V, 3GP, 3G2, WMV, ASF, AVI, FLV, MKV, WEBM
Audio formats: MP3, M4A, 3GA, AAC, OGG, OGA, WAV, WMA, AMR, AWB, FLAC, MID, MIDI, XMF, MXMF, IMY, RTTTL, RTX, OTA
Galaxy S7 supports multiple video formats, but if you have a video that is incompatible with S7, you just need a video converter.
Samsung Galaxy S7 specs: performance
Galaxy S7 works on Android v6.0, and comes with a Snapdragon 820 processor – compared with S6's Exynos 7420 processor, and backs up with 4GB RAM – compared with S6's 3GB. So, S7 is believed to have faster performance than S6.
Samsung Galaxy S7 specs: battery
Another specification of Samsung Galaxy S7 we want to share with you is the battery. In 2015, Samsung did an unpopular move – reduce battery capacity of Galaxy S6 and Note 5. This year, Samsung fixes this and upgrades S7's battery capacity to 3000mAh and packs S7 Edge with 3600mAh. Moreover, it supports wireless charging.
