Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is the curvier brother of the new Galaxy S7 flagship – just as the Galaxy S6 Edge was to last year’s S6 smartphone. But the smartphone does not merely set itself apart from the main flagship phone with its curvier appearance, it also comes with a larger display.
Design and Display
Users found the Galaxy S6 Edge quite aesthetic with the dual curve edges bordering the display.
The new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge treads similar path, but Samsung is taking things a bit further with a slightly curved rear as well. It is also thinner than its predecessor.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display which still has the same Quad HD (1,440p) resolution. While this is a huge smartphone, the design makes it a lot easier to handle than many similar-sized devices.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phablet also boasts IP68 rating, which means it is quite water-friendly.
Camera and Storage
On the camera front, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is equipped the same way as the regular S7.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge packs a fast-loading 12-megapixel rear-facing snapper with a ‘Dual Pixel’ sensor and an f/1.7 aperture lens for superb images, even under low-light conditions.
This is paired with a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. Internal storage has a capacity of either 32 GB or 64 GB, which is interestingly expandable this time by up to 200 GB using a microSD card.
Power and Performance
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will be powered by latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, but units for sale in some regions will be equipped with the in-house Exynos processors.
This CPU will be given robust backing by a more ample 4 GB of RAM for solid performance and smooth gaming.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phablet boots the feature-rich Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin on top.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a significantly bigger 3,600mAh battery, which will expectedly address the battery issues some users complained about the Galaxy S6 Edge. The juicer still supports wireless charging and fast charging.
