Samsung unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge . Now the questions is, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Galaxy S7 vs s7 Edge is worth the upgrade? Because we have an S6 Edge, we did a first comparison between the model with curved display South Korean company in 2015 and the new S7 Edge. From a hardware point of view, the differences are many: the processors are both the Exynos Octa-Core 64-bit, 8890 with 4GB of Ram LPDDR4 for S7 and Edge 4720 with 3GB of Ram LPDDR4 for S6 Edge. The front cameras are both 5MP, while the rear differ megapixel focal opening and Technology: 12.2 MP with BRITECELL technology, F1.7 and pixel aperture larger than S6 Edge that instead has a resolution of 16MP and F1.9 aperture .
Considering that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has been completely different from what we were used to seeing on smartphones, we can not lose sight of in the same sense that most rumors suggest that his successor, Galaxy S7 Edge, maintained a similar design, just with some variations, but of course, with the notable change screen size. It seems that for this new generation, Samsung has thought that there is no Edge Plus, so the Galaxy S7 Edge in itself would have a larger size than the original Galaxy S7, from the 5.1 inches that are indicated for this , the 5.5 inches that seems to have the device really stands out for its curved screen to one side.
Of course, the above modification achieved in the same way that the dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge remain small compared with those of the Galaxy S7, although it seems that not only on the outside of both will be differences, but when we think of the two, we find that the Galaxy S7 will have some developments in software, sure many users will love in no time. We refer in this regard to rumors that could reach the 3D Touch system that saw work últiamente the iPhone 6s, so that when you press with your fingers over the screen Galaxy S7, run different commands based on concrete strength we give to the screen.
On the other hand, and although it is clear that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge soon receive Android 6.0 version Marshmallow to upgrade your operating system, we have to say that the Galaxy S7 Edge will be the first terminal of the Korean specially developed to work with all Marshmallow the advantages of Android, and even some that is being said, could also be included in the next version of Android, known by experts as Android N, waiting for an official name.
The appearance of the cameras seems to be another who will be modified in this jump will soon see the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, and in this regard we refer in particular to the fact that it seems that Samsung is planning to incorporate similar to those of Apple cameras. That is, the new photo sensors Galaxy S7 may have even fewer megapixels that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, and yet take better pictures, thank you focus is on other variables in this regard.
When it comes to the battery, we know it was not exactly one of the strengths of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, although it did not receive the same criticisms as what happened with the latest generations of the iPhone. For this reason, we believe that Samsung plans to improve this aspect thinking about the Galaxy S7 Edge, although we can not lose sight of in the same sense that even expected to Android since version 6.0.1 Marshmallow, including a tool called Doze, help users save a great battery consumption, and along with it, increase the device’s battery.
