To differentiate itself from its predecessor, the S7-series smartphones are likely to feature 3D-Touch like display technology, and USB Type-C port.
In terms of photography, a 12-megapixel sensor with better low light performance is likely to be in tow. A fingerprint scanner and an iris scanner, and larger capacity batteries are expected. An earlier report stated that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge could feature 3,000mAh and 3,600mAh batteries. On the software front, all the variants are likely to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
