Samsung Galaxy S7: USB Type-C port and pressure-sensitive display

Samsung is keen to boost its upcoming Galaxy S7 with a pressure-sensitive display and a high-speed charging port.

The fact that the Galaxy S7 will mount a pressure sensitive display isn't new though, with 9to5Mac reporting the same back in October. As per 9to5Mac, 'Samsung's new display will be based on Synaptic's recently-launched ClearPad 3700 force-sensing touchscreen controller which will enable 'variable speed scrolling, new ways to zoom and pan over pictures, new contextual menus, and other features.'

Among other rumoured features to debut with the Galaxy S7 are a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 20MP camera with RAW and Pro modes and strong Magnesium allow unibody.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Samsung is also contemplating about adding a retina scanner which will boost the phone's biometric authentication. Reportedly, LG will also introduce an Iris scanner with its upcoming G5 flagship.

Galaxy S7 may also feature a new USB Type-C port which will enable you to fully charge the phone in under 30 minutes. The port will also allow high speed data transfers to save time. The new phone may also feature an external memory card slot for additional data storage.

The rear camera in Galaxy S7 will also be optimised for low-light photography and will not budge out from the phone's frame unlike in the Galaxy S6.

Last month, Samsung announced its latest Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor, thus leapfrogging Qualcomm which is set to unveil its latest Snapdragon 820 chip. The new 64-bit Exynos 8 Octa is based on Samsung's integrated one-chip solution and holds both processor and modem in one place which improves performance and efficiency and saves much-needed space within the smartphone structure.

Exynos 8 Octa also contains Mali™-T880, ARM®’s latest GPU for enabling superior graphics, 3D gaming and VR experiences. Given that Samsung may not continue with the Exynos 7 which powered Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones, there's a big chance that the Exynos 8 will debut with the upcoming Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones. However, we are yet to receive an official confirmation from Samsung in this regard.
