Samsung Releases Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge Waterproof Smartphones – Available March 11
So it looks like Samsung did listen to the consumers as Galaxy S6 was a little disappointment when they announced that the Smartphone will no longer be waterproof, have SD Card and have removable battery. Well Samsung has changed that, well most of it. The new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are almost identical to S6 but now they are Waterproof and they accept microSD card to store up to 200GB of photos and videos. Unfortunately battery is still not removable but it did receive a upgrade to 3000mAh. INternal memory will stay at 32GB which should be sufficient. As we know 16GB was simply not enough to work with.
We did see drop in megapixel of the front camera but Samsung promises that it will take batter pictures. To those that take photos for a living know that Megapixels are just a number and the quality is what matters. In addition to better pictures Motion Photo was introduced. This takes photo of moving objects, it captures a few seconds of video each time you take a picture and allows you to go thru the stills of the video and choose the best one to keep as photo.
Lets also not forget that if you Pre-Order the new Galaxy S7, Samsung will give you VR Headset with Games for free. So if you are planning a upgrade you may want to do it early.
Prices vary by carrier but you you can expect to pay around $694 for Galaxy S7 and $794 for Galaxy S7 Edge. Some carriers like T-Mobile will add a Year of Netflix for free to the pre-order deal.
