It seems kind of early to see all of these Galaxy S7 rumors, right? We’ve seen quite a few rumors and reports surface this week regarding the new device. Including it appearing on benchmarks. Just yesterday, we heard that it was named Project Lucky, and would be available in two sizes. Now we’re hearing that Samsung is looking to launch the device in a 5.7-inch variant. That’s the same size as their Galaxy Note 5 (as well as the past two versions of the Galaxy Note). There’s also word that Samsung could use both their Exynos 8890 processor as well as a Qualcomm chip – likely the Snapdragon 820. Now it looks like Samsung might be doing a duo-camera setup with the Galaxy S7.
Who remembers the last flagship with two cameras on the back? Yeah the HTC One M8, which didn’t sell all that well. Some of the blame, however is on that 4MP camera. And Samsung cameras have been amazing in recent years, so this could be a great thing. As some of the effects that the Duo-Camera set up provide are pretty amazing. Seeing as the secondary camera is used to get depth information, you can make some pretty sweet pictures.
This report is coming out of South Korea this morning, and so far there’s no word on what megapixel size Samsung is looking to use for this smartphone. While we are about 6 months out from the release of the Galaxy S7, it appears that Samsung is still working on a few different prototypes right now. Or, of course, some of these rumors could indeed be false. We’d have to wait and see.
Samsung has had a tough 2014 and 2015 in terms of sales, so it appears that they could be moving up the release of the Galaxy S7 to get some more sales next year. Hopefully Samsung – who still has the majority share in Android – can get things moving and start making a healthy profit again. As no company likes to see a decline in profit. Especially one that is so big in the mobile space like Samsung.
