Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones are considered to be one of the best handsets of last year, and Samsung will unveil their successors later today. The company’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices have been leaking out for months now, and we’ve seen quite a few real life image and spec info leaks thus far, so we have a pretty good idea what the company plans to announce. As it’s usually the case, not all details are available at the moment, but everything will be revealed later today.
Before that happens though, let’s take a look at yet another leaked piece of info, shall we. It seems like the Galaxy S7 Edge’s retail packaging has surfaced prior to Samsung’s event. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll not only see the phone’s alleged retail box, but its partial specs as well. The writing on the box says that the phone will sport a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM and that the 32GB internal storage variant will be the most affordable model of the device. The 64-bit octa-core processor is already listed, and according to previous leaks, the phone will be powered by either the Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 SoC, depending on the model. 4G LTE connectivity is also listed on the box, and so is the IP68 certification for water and dust resistance, which is interesting considering previous rumors claimed the device will ship with IP67 certification. The ‘Dual Pixel’ 12-megapixel camera is also listed here, and so is the 5-megapixel front-facing snapper. The Galaxy S7 Edge will also support wireless charging, though you’ll have to purchase a separate charging pad for that, we’re assuming it will be compatible with regular Qi standard wireless chargers. The KNOX security sweet is also listed on the box, and that’s pretty much it.
In addition to everything listed here, you can expect this phone to ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI available on top of it. This phone will be made out of metal and glass, and a physical home button will be placed below the display. Speaking of which, you’ll be able to find a fingerprint scanner built into that home button, as usual. THat’s pretty much it, Samsung will hold their press event at 7 PM later today, so stay tuned for that.
