The attest teaser that has accidentally been released by Samsung indicates that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will come with waterproofing capabilities, which has been missing from the Samsung Galaxy S6. This will certainly be a major advantage and a useful change.
Force touch display
Samsung will be bringing a feature that we saw on the new generation iPhone 6S models. Yes, the company is most likely adding Force or 3D Touch onto the screen of the Galaxy S7 to take on arch rival Apple. It is rumored that the new Samsung top-end Galaxy S models will feature a display that will interpret the pressure applied on the screen to navigate accordingly.
Snapdragon 820 SPU and 4GB RAM
One of the most taked about feature on the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset that is yet to be seen on a smartphone of its caliber. The Galaxy flagship phone will boasts immense power with the latest and fastest processor. The company ensures that it offers better experience on the Galaxy S7 than the S6, which too was pretty powerful with the SND 810. The RAM size will remain unchanged from the previous generation Galaxy S6, staying at 4GB this time as well.
Better camera performance:
Samsung this year will alter its way to offer a great camera experience to its consumers. The company is believed to offer lower camera pixels on the Galaxy S7. So you will get a 12MP camera sensor, instead of the 16MP as seen on the Galaxy S6. However, the reduced pixel count won't affect the imaging experience considering that Samsung has increased sensor size of the camera that will ensure better camera performance.
Samsung goes beyond fingerprint!
Samsung is all set to ditch the fingerprint scanner as seen on the Galaxy S6, to introduce iris scanner on the Galaxy S7 in order to take the security quotient a notch higher. The company seems to have taken cue from the Microsoft's newest flagship smartphones, the Lumia 950 and 950XL, to add the Iris scanner security tool. The feature will let users set unique pass-code in the form of retina impression to lock and unlock the phone.
Rumors have it that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will retain the glass and metal design elements of the Galaxy S6, which makes sense considering that it had made major designed changes in the last gen S series model. However, the company will be adding two more new models to the family. It is expected that the Galaxy S7 will be made available in four models this time around, including the Galaxy S7, S7 Plus, S7 Edge and the S7 Edge Plus. These models are likely to vary on the basis of form factor.
Improved native UI
Another interesting change will be on the software front, where Samsung is expected to refreshing some of the features. The company will not bring noticeable changes in the overall design and feel of the OS, but will be offering better experience and eliminate bugs. You may as well see the early release of software updates on the phone considering that Samsung is working closely with Google to open windows of providing faster software updates.
