The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will feature either Snapdragon 820 from Qualcomm or Exynos chipset from Samsung. Both will contain 4GB of RAM. Internal storage is either 32/64GB, but thankfully Samsung have brought back the MicroSD slot with up to 200GB expandable storage.

We have a 12MP rear shooter with F/1.7 aperture for a bump in low light performance over the Galaxy S6. While the pixels are larger, Samsung’s sensor is a dual-pixel, which means the each pixel is used to focus on an image for better low light focusing.

Design is where these devices change, not only to each other, but also to last years Galaxy S6. The S7 comes with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440p resolution. The S7 Edge bumps things up to 5.5-inches, with the same resolution. As before the Edge will contain a curved display on both sides of the device. It’s also a bigger device with a larger battery at 3,400mAh vs the 3,000mAh inside the S7. Both devices will sport IP68 water/dust resistance.

Both smartphones also contain built in Wireless charging, and will use MicroUSB. Both smartphones go on pre-order next week for official launch on March 11th. Anyone pre-ordering the device between now and then will get a free Gear VR. Pricing has yet to be announced.
