An Indonesian site has leaked the images and a video of the upcoming flagship phone from Samsung, the Galaxy S7. The video starring the Indonesian archer Dellie Threesyadinda, featured a Samsung phone which is believed to be the Galaxy S7 since it does not match any other previous Samsung phones. The phone that was featured had wireless charging (which is very good), enhanced camera, and was at least a bit of waterproof as the phone was not affected by the downpour of rain. This is very good news for people who have been wanting to get Samsung’s newest flagship phone. Its ruggedness and almost all metal design will definitely bring more allure to the phone.
According to reliable sources, these phone will feature monster innards. It is rumored to have an octacore processor on either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 or Samsung’s in-house Exynos chips paired with an Adreno 530 Graphics processing unit. It will have at least 4GB RAM and at least 64GB storage. Yes, that is a whopping 64GB! Who could have thought phones would go this far. Imagine if you can overclock this phone using Android rooting methods. Good news is that Samsung has brought the expandable storage back from the dead which will support up to 200GB of data. The phone will have a competition killing camera based on the recent video leak. It is also rumored to have a fingerprint sensor as Google has finally released the fingerprint API to be integrated in Android 6.0 Lollipop.
With all the goodies that the phone comes with, some experts are really baffled why Samsung held out on the USB Type-C socket. The company is still sticking their bets on the Micro USB slot. Other flagship Android smartphones like the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, OnePlus Two and computers like the Chromebook Pixel 2 and the MacBook has already jumped to the USB Type-C port last year. Why won’t Samsung take the plunge? We all know that the USB Type-C will overtake the MicroUSB as the preferred port of the near future, so why hold back?
Will buyers still consider buying the Samsung Galaxy S7 even if it still is sticking to MicroUSB? I think so, yes. For some it does not really matter what port it uses as long as its processor and camera are good enough. Some also just prefer the looks. To them if the phone looks and feels good, then it is a good buy. Whatever reason we may have buying this phone let’s just hope did not make the Galaxy S7 to disappoint.
