Samsung Galaxy S7 specifications and features: From the rumors so far, the smartphone could sport a 5.1-inch QHD (1440x2560pixels) Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. On the hardware front, it could be powered by either Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and either 32GB or 64GB storage. As seen in the leaked photo yesterday, the smartphone will also come with a microSD card slot for further expansion.
In terms of camera, it is likely to pack a 12-megapixel BRITECELL sensor with better low-light capabilities, something which Samsung patented recently. An earlier leaked video had confirmed water resistance capabilities too. With 2,800mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS wrapped under TouchWiz UI, connectivity options such as Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ad, NFC are expected too.
Along with the new Galaxy S7 handsets, Samsung is also expected to unveil the Gear 360 virtual reality camera. While not enough details are available at the moment, we will have to wait until Samsung makes this official on February 21.
