The LG G5 did a number on the Samsung Galaxy S7's camera this year with its modular upgrades and in order to fight back, Samsung had declared that it would be releasing a modular lens cover for the S7 series of smartphones very soon. As promised, Samsung has now released the lens cover which will allow owners of the S7 or S7 Edge to enhance the imaging capabilities of their phones.
The lens cover comes with a tele-lens, as well as a wide-angle lens so that the user can switch them according to the need of the moment. The package including the phone cover and the two lenses are currently priced at around $120.99. Considering that a retailer in Holland had listed these covers at roughly $170 about eight weeks ago, the official price tag seems much more reasonable now.
You are probably familiar with how the lenses work already, but just in case you are not, here is some know-how. A wide-angle lens is usually used for capturing landscape shots or group photos. The telephoto lens on the other hand is ideal for shooting objects at a distance, for example, the moon. Given how much people depend on the cameras of their smartphones these days; this is an excellent move by Samsung.
