The Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with only fairly moderate design changes compared to the S6 but offers a lot of new technology. The device body is now IP68 rated for environmental protection which means it is dust-proof and water-resistant down to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. North American and European models will come with Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM. Internal storage is 32GB but on the S7 the microSD slot has made its return for easy memory expansion, a move by Samsung that high-volume photographers and videographers will certainly appreciate. The S7's 5.1-inche display offers a 1440p QHD resolution.

Power is provided by a 3,000mAh battery that also supports Samsung's quick charging technology and wireless charging with an optional dock. In the camera department pixel count has been reduced to 12MP for larger 1.4um pixels which means a 56 percent increase in size compared to the Galaxy S6. Samsung has also introduced a new AF system it calls Dual-Pixels. The Dual Pixel image sensor splits every single pixel into two photodiodes for on-chip phase detection.The CMOS sensor is combined with a fast F1.7 aperture and an optical image stabilization system.
