The cream of the Android crop: Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge
All-round technological improvements
Samsung is further cementing its position at the top of the Android world with its newest Galaxy offerings, the S7 and S7 edge. Featuring some of the most advanced technology in a smartphone including the first ever dual pixel camera, the pair marries technological functionality with a sleek stylish design.
The Galaxy S7, measuring 5.1 inches, along with the Galaxy S7 edge at 5.5 inches, are both made using the revolutionary 3D Glass Forming technology. In addition, the intuitive always-on display offers various functions including time, date and notifications to be visible even when the phone is not in use.
Elsewhere, one of the most used functions in a smartphone today, the onboard cameras on the new pair have been vastly improved with bigger pixel, wider aperture, better autofocus and a faster shutter speed all working together to create some of the best quality photos you can take on a cameraphone. The new motion panorama element also adds an even greater photo-taking-experience to the phone, allowing you to tell an immersive story.
Apart from the camera, the other highlight of the new phone is its water resistance quality, offering peace of mind for usage near the water. Storage-wise, a common concern for heavy phone users, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge features a microSD slot to increase the storage to an additional 200GB.
"The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are very bold representations of our commitment to the hundreds of millions of people around the world who love our products and inspire our work," said Tarek Sabbagh, Head of IT and Mobile Division at Samsung Gulf Electronics. "Class-leading camera technology, a longer-lasting battery, cutting edge processors and optimisation for gaming are just some features that will make these the most innovative smartphones you've ever owned."
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are priced at Dhs2,499 and Dhs2,799 respectively and are available at all major retailers in the UAE.
