Samsung’s flagship devices set to create waves in the real and virtual world.
Smartphone aficionados got a sneak peek of cutting edge technology ahead of the Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona, Spain from Feb. 22-25, 2016. Samsung unveiled two formidable mobile devices today that unlock new and enhanced experiences: The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.
The latest flagship models in the S series are a class apart. With stunning design, advanced technology, progressive features and a range of compatible devices that give immersive experiences a new meaning, the smartphones are set to create waves in both the real and virtual world. Discover more about them here.
Beauty lies in the palm of your hands
The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge take beauty to the next level. A sleek and stylish look powered by a metal and glass exterior is synonymous with the latest S series range.
The devices come in different elegant colours to suit your taste: Black Onyx, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium. An ergonomic design with smooth curves offers you a comfortable grip while adding to the aesthetic value. And now your phone is even more protected with a water-and- dust resistant exterior.
A visual treat
The latest S7 series is a delight whether you prefer large screens or smaller ones. The S7 features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, while the S7 edge flaunts the same high-quality 5.5-inch screen with a dual curved edge. Enjoy an immersive experience when watching your favourite action or romance movies, and witness the true beauty and colours of breathtaking landscapes that you have captured through your phone’s camera.
Whether you are an amateur or professional photographer, you can capture wonderful photos with the 12MP rear and 5MP front cameras. Photos come out gorgeously sharp and detailed even after the sun’s gone down. The cameras are equipped with better pixel quality, brighter (f1.7) lens and a Professional Grade Dual Pixel Sensor which can focus as quickly and as accurately as you would with your own eyes.
Keeps you going
If you indulge in heavy usage of your smartphone, it’s important to have a long-lasting battery that supports your usage patterns. Equipped with a battery of 3000mAh and 3600 mAh respectively, the S7 and S7 edge have enough ‘juice’ to keep going and cater to all your needs. Multiple charging options also make keeping your phone powered up convenient. The fast charger in the S7 takes your phone from zero to full in 90 minutes; the wireless charging pad allows you to top up your phone’s battery by simply placing it on the pad instead of struggling with cables; and handy accessories, such as portable chargers, make charging on the go hassle-free.
Want to make your gaming adventure more immersive? Attach your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge to the Gear VR for a unique virtual reality experience. The wearable device tracks your head movements and a touchpad on the right allows easy navigation. Aside from enjoying content on the phone’s Super AMOLED display, you can get a wider field of view to truly experience your game and manoeuver with ease thanks to the Gear VR’s precise head-tracking.
With the devices, you can also enjoy an un-interrupted gaming experience. Imagine you have finally reached the much-awaited final level of a challenging game and are about to slay the dragon to be declared victor. And just as you’re about to finish the job, you get a call. Not the grand ending you hoped? Galaxy S7 allows you to activate a ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode, which will keep distractions and interruptions away.
Do your friends not believe it when you say you have, in fact, slayed the dragon and cleared the most difficult level of the game? Prove it to them. The phone allows you to record your game, so you can share it with your friends later and relish your victory again.
As a gaming enthusiast, it’s understandable that you may download several game apps. If you love capturing moments, you are likely to take hundreds, if not thousands, of photos and videos. And if you’re a working professional, you’ll clearly save work-related notes and documents on your device. With Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, you don’t have to worry about running out of space. Along with ample internal storage, the devices feature a microSD slot which allows you additional storage to meet your needs. You can also take advantage of the Smart Manager on the phone to manage your storage, in addition to other ways to free up space on your device.
