We’re just under a month before the alleged Galaxy S7 unveiling and a new leak may have just confirmed the device’s hardware specs.
What appears to be a leaked slide from a slideshow just surfaced containing a spec comparison of recent flagship Galaxy models. The leak suggests that the Galaxy S7 will include a 5.1-inch 1440p display, which is good for a QHD resolution. In addition, the Galaxy S7 will have different variants, one running the Snapdragon 820 SoC, and the other running Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 processor. Judging from recent leaks, both chipsets perform about the same in terms of benchmarks.
Based on the leaked presentation slide, the Galaxy S7 will contain the rumored 12MP camera sensor with a new BRITECELL technology to take better low-light shots. The Galaxy S7 is also expected to get a boost in RAM. Instead of the 2GB that came on the Galaxy S5, and the 3GB that the Galaxy S6 had, the Galaxy S7 will have 4GB of RAM matching that on the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+.
All these specs line up perfectly with recent leaks, so you can assume these are the real deal. The leak also includes an image of what could be the Galaxy S7, but sources say that it’s just a placeholder. The Galaxy S7 should be announced on February 21, the day prior to the start of MWC 2016. The event is taking place in Barcelona as it normally does and will run from February 22 through the 25. The device could launch as early as March 11.
