Revealed: Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge sizes and specifications

Samsung is expected to launch its next flagship smartphone and phablet at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. But recent certifications in Taiwan and Indonesia lay bare what the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will feature.

The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones will sport dual SIM variants which is quite rare for a Galaxy S handset. They will also contain 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch displays with QHD Super AMOLED resolutions.

In fact, the Galaxy S7 Edge got certified by Taiwan’s National Communications Commission yesterday, having passed certification along with the Galaxy S7 in Indonesia earlier. As per the certification documents, both handsets will feature 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, NFC and wireless charging, stuff that are already present in Galaxy S6 handsets.

As far as new features are concerned, we are putting our money on the new Exynos 8890 processor, dual SIM variants, Quad HD displays and 3,000 mAh and 3,600 mAh batteries respectively. All these features have been subjected to recent leaks and certifications, so we're sure they'll turn up at the launch. If you've been missing the microSD slot, there are rumours that the Galaxy S7 may sport one too!

Much like the recently released Nexus 5X and 6P phones, the new Galaxy S7 phones will come with Android 6.1 Marshmallow OS and USB Type-C ports which will enable faster charging and data transfers. Earlier, courtesy 9to5Mac, we learnt that Galaxy S7 may also contain a pressure sensitive display just like the ones in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. 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.'

Tha Galaxy S7's processor also went through an AnTuTu testing which revealed that the phone may turn out to be the best performing phone of the year. “The Exynos 8890, Samsung's next high-powered chipset, set a new record score on the AnTuTu benchmark site. The tally of 103,692 easily topped the 79,000 recently scored by the Kirin 950 SoC, Huawei's new top-of-the-line chip (a more recent run through of the Mate 8 produced a score above 94K),” said Phone Arena.
