Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Get Official

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know pretty much all there is to know about the Samsung Galaxy S7 range. Today though, the devices have been officially announced, and there’s a nice little video to go along with the announcement.

The form factor of both devices remains very similar to last years models, but the internals have been beefed up, and the memory card slot is back!

Both devices will come with either a Snapdragon Qualcomm 820 SoC, or Samsung’s own Exynos 8890. Paired up with 4GB of memory, these devices promise some fantastic power. Throw in the fact that Samsung promises support for Vulkan, a new technology that will help developers to truly harness the hardware available for gaming, this years models truly could be something spectacular.

Another feature to return alongside the memory card slot is waterproofing, only this time, Samsung has gotten serious. Both models are IP68 rated, which means they are no longer just water resistant.

Camera wise, the S7’s pack a 12MP sensor, but the lower MP count isn’t something to turn away from due to an innovative technology in the f/1.7 aperture and Dual Pixel technology. The new camera promises fantastic low light shooting and super fast auto focus.

That’s just a quick overview of some of the features, mainly focusing on what’s returned or different from the previous versions. Check out Samsung’s video for more, and sound off in the comments below.
