Photographs capture split-second moments that are impossible to duplicate. Whether you’re an amateur or professional photographer, you’ll be very interested to know that each of your photos could now be worth sharing AND you can relive those moments, over and over.

The new advanced technology of the Samsung S7 edge and S7 will help you get crystal clear images, even under extreme low-light.


These latest flagship models in the S-series are designed to capture those special moments even under the most extreme situations.

Designed to withstand water and severe dust conditions, and equipped with high pixel quality, a brighter lens and a sensor that focuses rapidly, this smartphone will help unlock a creative talent of which you may not have been aware.

The ergonomic design of the new Galaxy S7 Edge and S7 available in Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and Black Onyx – offers more than simply good looks. Its form follows function: giving a comfortable, secure grip in your hand. Impressively, its water- and dust-resistant exterior lends a durability which gives you peace of mind to use your phone on the beach, on the water or while picnicking in the desert with friends and family. With its makers cleverly having come up with ways to seal internal components (while keeping micro USB ports and external jacks open), the S7-series can cope with being immersed to a depth of 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.

Armed with a 12 mega pixel rear camera and 5 mega pixel front camera, we've also fitted the S7-series with a Professional Grade Dual Pixel Sensor that allows the camera to focus as quickly and accurately as you would with your own eyes. This helps deliver perfectly crisp and sharp photos at the click of the shutter.

Brighter Camera

Photography is about light – and that's why we've also added a "brighter" lens capable of using an aperture of f-stop 1.7. Simply put, this helps you get the best out of night shots or other indoor low-light conditions. This aperture is also very handy for taking great shots of nature and portraits. (Just as a matter of interest, the f-number of the human eye varies from about f 8.3 in bright light to f 2.1 in the dark.)


Constant use of any mobile phone means reduced power supply from the battery. But because we at Samsung know that connectivity in our modern society is a perquisite for daily living, we've increased the battery capacity on the S7 to 3,000 milliampere hour (mAh) and to 3,600mAh on the S7 edge. We've also included multiple charging options that make powering up as easy as pie. So, you don't have to worry about battery power: you can take as many photos as you like, knowing that you will not compromise on staying connected with your friends.

The mix of a busy social life and a smartphone that boasts an impressive high-pixel image-capturing capability, as well as increased battery capacity to keep your mobile device going for longer, implies that you will soon have hundreds of photos of selfies, birthday parties, holidays and fun times with friends on your phone. These could consume a huge amount of space of your phone's memory. However, to safeguard that the S7's custom CPU and 4GB RAM constantly allow smooth and fast operation of your phone, additional storage for your photos – and other music or movie files – can be added by merely slipping in a micro SD card of up to 200GB into the phone.

What are you waiting for? Go ahead and capture life.
