Samsung had unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S7, its flagship phone for 2016 during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The 32 GB device has been priced at INR 48,400 in India, which is about USD 720. The price for the 64GB Galaxy S7 is still kept under the wraps, but should be revealed soon. Samsung has also opened up pre bookings to the public, so make sure you book your Galaxy S7 before the 17th Mar’16 to get a free Samsung Gear VR headset with it! Yes you heard me right, a free Samsung Gear VR headset!
The new Samsung Galaxy S7 gets rid of the plastic feel its predecessor, the Galaxy S6 had and carries a more metallic and glassy feel. It seems that Samsung has also learnt from it mistakes, as the Samsung Galaxy S7 now comes with expandable storage. The device comes with a Micro SD card slot, which supports up to 200GB. I guess you can say good bye to cloud storage?
The Galaxy S7 comes with a one a kind 12 MP f/1.7 aperture primary camera, and a 5 MP f/1.7 aperture front facing camera, which takes care of low light photography, and gives you DSLR like quality images. Apart from the dope camera, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and is IP68 certified, which means that the device is waterproof up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, and is dust resistant. Samsung has also managed to extend the battery to 3000mAh, ensuring maximum screen time.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is an intensive gamers wish come true, as it comes with 4GB of RAM, an octa core processor (2.3Ghz Quad +1.6Ghz Quad), and a Vulkan Graphic API. The 5.1 inch QHD Super Amoled even make the colours feel alive. There is enough fire power to play some of the best games on android out there.
One great feature of the new Samsung Galaxy S7 is the Samsung Concierge Service. This service is provides users with four extra benefits. The first is the Haptik powered My Assistant, which lets users set reminders, order cakes, and do online check-in’s. Next is the Chat with Samsung Support feature that allows users to call up a 24/7 toll free Samsung helpline and get answers to questions related to your device. Third is the Phone Pickup and Drop facility that ensures you provides access to a standby device if your Samsung Galaxy S7 is gone for a repair. The last advantage that the Samsung Concierge Service gives to its users is Fast Track Access at Samsung Service Centres. This might not sound like a big deal, but trust me it’s much better than having to wait in a queue.
Let’s just hope Samsung can work on making the Galaxy S7 affordable for now.
