New details regarding the purported upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 edge+ have leaked online, suggesting that the phone will come packed with a 12-megapixel snapper. Additionally, rumor has it that the upcoming flagship could house a larger sensor.
Samsung’s Galaxy S7 lineup has been dominating headlines ahead of its introduction. Rumor suggests that the phone maker could be working on no less than four Galaxy S7 variants, which include two phones with regular, flat screens and two versions featuring dual-curved screens. Needless to say, the latter versions could be part of the lineup’s Edge series.
It was not too long ago when a report emerged saying the regular variant could come equipped with 5.2-inch display.
On Jan. 3, a photo showing off the specs of the alleged S7 edge+ variant has cropped up on Reddit, showing that the phone will feature a 5.7-inch display that is curved with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels.
What’s more, the leaked photo shows that this S7 edge+ variant could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset which incorporates Adreno 530 GPU, implying that this phone could be powerful.
In terms of its camera, it will reportedly tout a 12-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video chats.
Additionally, the photo suggests the phone will have 4 GB of RAM.
A few months ago, a rumor made rounds on the Internet saying a 12-megapixel shooter with a sensor larger than what is integrated into the 16-megapixel snappers of the Galaxy S6 lineup could be in the works. That said, it is likely that Samsung could include this more humongous sensor into its Galaxy S7 handsets.
If the rumor is true, this will mean that loyal fans could benefit from a higher image quality, in spite of having a bit lower pixel resolution. This also signifies that the 12-megapixel camera is not a downgrade from the 16-megapixel shooters included in the Galaxy S6 phones.
Rumors claim that the company is not expected to unveil the Galaxy S7 edge+ alongside its other siblings until next month. The lineup is believed to be launched during the Mobile World Congress 2016.
At this point, however, Samsung has made no actual mentions of when it intends to take the wraps off its new flagship devices and how much these phones could be priced.
As always, it is wise to take reports like these with a huge grain of salt. We will be sure to keep you updated on any new details with regard to this smartphone.
