As mentioned earlier, the new Samsung Galaxy S7 has not yet been released to the public but initial reports of its specifications have already made many see it as a formidable foe in the Android market. The look and feel of it will still have similarities with its other predecessors but its main features will surely surpass all of them. Here are just a few of them:

The new Samsung Galaxy S7 will enable you to share battery power of another Samsung device without needing a cable or USB. All you need is to turn on this feature on your brand new S7 and you won’t have to worry about losing power.

2. 4GB Ram

If you’re a more on-the-go person, then you will definitely love this feature. With this capacity, this means you will be able to do all your office work without turning on your laptop or PC – anytime, anywhere you want!

3. 64 Bit Processor

Basically, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be the first smart phone to have this kind of processing speed – a huge improvement in smart phones since we normally experience this only in laptops and PCs.

4. 32/64 and 128Gb Memory

Samsung devices are widely known for its generosity in memory space so it will come as no surprise if the new Galaxy S7 will surpass its predecessors.

5. 30 Megapixels Camera

Even most of the digital cameras in the market today do not have this kind of feature so really, this is kind of a big deal especially to photography enthusiasts. The front camera will also have 10 Megapixel.

6. 5G Network Connection

Most of the smart phones currently available in the market only have 4G networks and they don’t even have a stable connection most of the time. This feature will boost your browsing experience and will definitely give it more edge than the other smart phones.

The new Samsung Galaxy S7 has not yet been made available but already it has managed to exceed all our expectations with regards to smart phone innovation. With all of its new and unique features, it is definitely one to watch out for (and definitely a must buy) this year.
