Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are the company’s newest flagship devices. Samsung has introduced these two phones during their press conference last month, as part of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are somewhat different than its predecessors, though they’re still quite similar in many aspects. The two devices are already available for purchase in a number of different regions all over the world, though they come in two different processor variants, read on.
These two phones were announced in both Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 variants. Those of you who purchase either of these handsets in the US will get the Snapdragon 820-powered variant, at least if you go through official channels. If, for some reason, you’d like to grab the Exynos 8890-powered Galaxy S7 Edge, well, now you have that option as well. The Exynos 8890 variant of the Galaxy S7 Edge popped up on eBay, and those of you who live in the US can now purchase it for $699.99. Keep in mind that this is the unlocked international variant of the device (SM-G935F), and along with the Exynos 8890 you’ll get the ARM Mali-T880 MP14 GPU. The phone is available in Black, Gold and Silver color options, and is compatible with most LTE bands in the US, though keep in mind it won’t work with CDMA networks. The phone will be shipped your way for free (no additional charge aside from the price of the device), though the device does not have an official US warranty, which is something you should consider before spending so much cash on this handset.
As already mentioned, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are quite similar in many aspects. Both of these phones are made out of metal and glass, and both of them ship with QHD Super AMOLED displays, though those panels are different in size (5.5-inch display on the Galaxy S7 Edge). The two phones feature 4GB of RAM on the inside, and a 12-megapixel ‘Dual Pixel’ snapper can be found on their back. Android 6 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and on top of it, you’ll find Samsung’s very own TouchWiz UI.
