The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have seen a shift in the design philosophy of Samsung. The OEM ditch few features that made it stood apart from its closest rival in the smartphone space which is Apple.
The Galaxy S6 family have brought about the halt of optional expandable memory when it was launch with no SD card slot, no waterproofing capability, and non-removable battery.
Rumors have been piling up about the coming Galaxy S7 and its partner the S7 Edge — the Korean company is expected to follow the same exterior design of its immediate predecessor while introducing some of the features that made the S5 before it stand out — which include the likes of memory expansion capability via Micro SD card slot, waterproofing, and even a bigger battery.
Apparently, an FCC report has surfaced which suggested that the S7 and S7 Edge will feature a 3600mAh battery like mentioned in previous rumors which state that the devices will come with either a 3600mAh or 3000mAh battery.
Given the fact the Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 are both based on a 14nm FinFET process, the battery size might just be able to keep up with the processing demands of the phone – provided Samsung gets optimization right – which is not always the case at launch. Whatever the case maybe, future software optimization will always have the Galaxy S7 performing better as it’s been observed on flagships before it.
As MWC draws closer, we’ll be sure to get more updates on the supposed Galaxy flagship and as usual, we’ll keep you in the loop as needed…..stay tuned!
