Rumors are abound that Samsung may launch the Galaxy S7 sooner than expected, most likely in February. Though concept designers have imagined what Samsung’s upcoming phone might look like, most of them are fantasy rather than a realistic concept. Now designer SCAVidsHD has created two concept videos that are so beautiful that you would want to upgrade to Galaxy S7 Edge when it arrives next year.
Samsung expected to retain the design elements of Galaxy S6
SCAVidsHD has kept the concept conservative and realistic. Samsung is widely expected to launch two versions of Galaxy S7: one with a standard display and another with curves on both sides of the phone. The company is unlikely to move away from the current design of its Galaxy S line, given both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have been widely praised.
The concept Galaxy S7 Edge features a 21-megapixel main camera and 8MP front snapper. SCAVidsHD imagines the phone with two front-facing speakers and a USB Type-C port that can transfer data at up to 10GB per second. It features 4GB RAM and 2K display. Samsung has fast-tracked the Galaxy S7 development, and plans to complete the development phase by December 2015.
Galaxy S7 for the U.S. and China to run Snapdragon 820
There have been numerous reports that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will feature Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 820 processor. Another variant is going to be powered by the Korean company’s in-house Exynos 8890 processor, previously called Mongoose M1. The Snapdragon 820 SoC is expected to provide support for features like Quick Charge 3.0. The device will sport Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box.
Citing Korean media, Reuters reports that the Samsung will use Snapdragon 820 chip in Galaxy S7 variant intended for the U.S. and Chinese markets. Handsets sold outside China and the U.S. will run Exynos 8890 processor. The Galaxy S7 running each processor has appeared in benchmark tests, and both have impressed tech enthusiasts.
