Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Overview
The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge hasn't changed to much compared to the predecessor but the rounded edges are now a little more accentuated and extend to the back plate. Under the hood there is a lot of new technology as well. 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 generation 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 edge's 5.5-inche display offers a 1440p QHD resolution.
Power is provided by a 3,600mAh 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.
