Samsung is set to reveal its all new flagship smartphone today, on the annual Mobile World Congress. Although needless to say, we already know almost everything there is to know about the smartphone days prior to its official unveiling.
Adding to the long list of leaks, it is now confirmed from the brochure for one of Germany’s largest tech retailer that the customers who are among the first to grab an S7 and S7 edge will get a free Gear VR. Although we had been hearing about such offer beforehand, but those reports pointed towards a specific region which was expected to receive such offer. Apparently, this brochure proves that the offer is somewhat global in nature. Moreover, as you can see in the picture below, previous speculations regarding the price tag of the upcoming smartphones have also been proved right. Just like S6 and S6 edge, upcoming flagships (S& and S7 edge) will be available for EUR 699 and EUR 799 respectively.
The brochure also confirms some other rumors which have been flying around since past few days. For example, a 5.5″ display for S7 edge and 5.1″ screen size for S7 have been advertised along with an IP68 certification for water-resistance. These displays will be protected by Gorilla Glass 4 while the smartphone is basically built on an aluminum alloy frame. Apart from that, a microSD slot with a capacity of 200GB expandable memory is also being featured. Last but not the least, the advertisement boasts about the 12 MP camera which will be accompanied by the novel Dual-Pixel sensor and a f/1.7 aperture to allow better camera performance in low light conditions.
As mentioned earlier, both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are all set to make their first appearance at Samsung’s Unpacked Event which is set to take place today. Galaxy S7 will likely be powered up with a Snapdragon 820 SoC accompanied by a RAM of 4 GB. Coming towards the OS powering the smartphone, reports claim that it will be running Android Marshmallow. Marshmallow was released last year with numerous new goodies including a completely new app drawer, redesigned app permissions, Doze, and Google Now on Tap.
We will be bringing all the updates as they surface, stay tuned with us to know more about these phones.
