Galaxy S7 features and specs revealed by a Samsung insider

Over the weekend we saw a few photos of a partially assembled Galaxy S7, and now one alleged Samsung employee is starting to spill some beans.

Speaking to the Korean media, this inside source claims to reveal a ton of new details about the Galaxy S7. Of course it’s possible this could be a phony leak, but everything lines up with previous reports, for the most part. Still, we’d treat these rumors with a grain of salt. That said, let’s dive in.

The Galaxy S7 will allegedly pack a 5.1-inch display, while the Galaxy S7 edge comes in at 5.5 inches across. Both models are also equipped with a 12-megapixel camera. Samsung apparently opted for fewer megapixels this time around, instead focusing on sensor size and performance. The camera may feature an impressive aperture of f/1.7 along with auto focus capabilities similar to a Canon DSLR.

The phone’s design may also gets a nice upgrade. Samsung’s apparently ironed out that camera hump for the Galaxy S7, and the device reportedly comes in black, white, silver or gold. It also boasts a water-resistant rating and expandable storage thanks to a hybrid dual SIM/microSD card slot.

Finally, the Galaxy S7 allegedly packs a bigger battery compared to last year’s models. Other rumored specs include a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor and a Quad HD pressure sensitive display, though none of those details are mentioned in this new report.

Samsung’s expected to announce the Galaxy S7 just ahead of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We’ll be covering the entire show live from the ground, and we’ll definitely make some time to check out the new phone and anything else the company brings to the show.
