Samsung is said to be experimenting with various types and shapes of pipes to fit into the smartphone.

As mentioned above heat pipes have been used on gaming PCs for a long time, but it is still a rarity on smartphones. That said the Sony Xperia Z5 and the recently launched Microsoft Lumia 950XL come to mind that boast such a liquid cooling system.

It is also expected to feature 4GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, 20-megapixel rear camera with BRITECELL camera sensor, 5-megapixel/8-megapixel selfie camera, and the usual bevy of connectivity options like 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and USB Type-C connector. The forthcoming smartphone is also expected to boast 3D Touch-like display. Just like this year s smartphones, the Galaxy S7 is also expected to be available in two variants a premium and sub-premium variants.
Furthermore, Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang claims that Samsung is planning on pricing the Galaxy S7 up to 10 percent lower than the Galaxy S6.
