“The Galaxy S7 edge has been one of the world’s best-selling smartphones,” said Yiyin Zhao, the Vice President and Head of Information Technology and Mobile Communication Business for Samsung Electronics H.K.

It is easy to control with just one hand. The internal components of the Galaxy S7 edge are completely sealed with a IP68 water and dust resistance USB port and headphone jack. There’s no need for an additional dust plug or dust cover.

Tasks edge, the advanced edge experience, provides convenience and increased efficiency by creating easy shortcuts to functions such as email, selfie mode, panorama mode or other applications. A built-in fast charging feature can fully charge to 100% capacity in only 115 minutes.
