Out for reclamation: Samsung to flame on all barrels with Galaxy S8

On Wednesday, Samsung will uncover its most current smartphone, the Galaxy S8, at its Unpacked occasion in New York (7 PM Dubai time).

There’s no deficiency of buildup when the South Korean tech titan uncovers another leader. Be that as it may, on account of the Note 7 calamity – in addition to the adventure including Samsung supervisor Jay Y. Lee – the reckoning is certain to shoot through the rooftop this time around.

Samsung was pegged to take a $17 billion hit (Dh62.4 billion) as an aftermath from the fire-inclined Note 7.

Samsung Galaxy S8: New era of smartphone

Gartner’s current write about the smartphone business demonstrated that in the final quarter of 2016, Samsung posted an eight for every penny drop in deals – losing 2.9 rate focuses in general – and was its second in a row quarter of decay. This was, obviously, to be faulted for the Note 7. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 plus is going to be an amazing smartphone with powerful specs and features.

“Samsung’s smartphone deals began to drop in the second from last quarter of 2016, and the choice to end the Note 7 backed off offers of its smartphone portfolio in the final quarter,” Gartner inquire about chief Anshul Gupta said in the report.

Galaxy S8 plus

“The withdrawal of the Note 7 remaining a hole in its extensive screen telephone territory.”

Be that as it may, disregard the money related part of it; the harm done to its notoriety was gigantic.

“This is the first occasion when that I have seen an item review turn out badly,” money related examiner Richard Windsor said on October 12, the day after Samsung at long last chose to stop the creation of the Note 7.

With regards to the harm that it will do to Samsung’s image, we are in the unchartered region.”

In any case, Samsung is, well, still Samsung. As at Thursday, Bloomberg records its market capitalization at over $260, sufficiently billion to overwhelm the 11 most significant firms recorded in the United States.

And keeping in mind that there are cynics, in fact, examiners say don’t discount Samsung that effortlessly. Carolina Milanesi, chief investigator at Creative Strategies, contends the key for Samsung is to win back the trust that it will keep on innovating.

Customers are for the most part very sympathetic and have a generally short memory. The auto business has seen a few reviews throughout the years, yet purchasers keep on buying,” she says.

“What is significantly more critical when we are discussing a market pioneer, particularly one that has picked up that position by receiving new advancements early, is to demonstrate that its development streak won’t be restricted by dread. Samsung must show purchasers that it has set up governing rules that will permit the organization to keep on bringing new innovation, new plans and new components into the market in a sheltered and powerful way.”

Couple that with the quick pace of updates, and Samsung has each motivation to be hopeful: recall, invigorate cycles for smartphones are shorter against PCs and tablets.

The Apple figure

Samsung’s VP for versatile correspondences, Lee Kyeong-tae, has gone on record saying that the Galaxy S8 will highlight a “smooth plan and an enhanced camera, and in addition an upgraded computerized reasoning administration”.

In the interim, spills have everything except affirmed what we can anticipate from the Galaxy S8, which incorporate, among others, facial acknowledgment that can be utilized for installments; right around zero bezels; a “Samsung DeX” dock, which can be utilized to associate the gadget to a PC screen likened to Microsoft’s Continuum; and costs of ?799 (Dh3,171) for the S8 and ?899 (Dh3,568), the last one as per really popular leakster Evan Blass.

These components may not be sufficient to allure purchasers if noted KGI Securities expert – and precise indicator – Ming-Chi Kuo is to be accepted.

“We are moderate of interest for Galaxy S8, and trust its commitment to the production network will be restricted,” he composed, including that KGI sees just 40 to 45 million shipments in the financial year 2017, considerably less than the 52 million for the Galaxy S7 in a tantamount time span.

In the interim, look out for Apple’s next biggie – the “iPhone 8” – in September. There is impressive buildup encompassing Tim Cook and Co’s tenth commemoration offering, which may influence clients somewhat, given bits of gossip and releases turning out.

“Rather, we suggest concentrating on the business viewpoint and production network force of Apple’s [US] OLED iPhone show,” Kuo noted.

It will be D-Day for Samsung on Wednesday. What’s more, closure the sit tight for the Galaxy S8 is a certain something; enduring persistently to discover how it works out is a totally extraordinary thing inside and out.

Samsung Galaxy S7 versus LG G5: Specs and Features Compared

Of course, the Korean contention is back in the middle of Samsung and LG, in what capacity will the flagships of every analyze in 2016?

So this year has opened with a BANG in the versatile space – Mobile World Congress, the primary real portable occasion of the year, saw two of the greatest names in the Android space truly clashing, propelling their eagerly awaited cutting edge flagship handsets on the extremely same day.

galaxy-s7-vs-lg-g5

Samsung booked its Samsung Unpacked occasion for February 21, a day prior MWC authoritatively commenced, yet at the same time held the occasion in MWC’s normal home of Barcelona, Spain. However, a short time before that, we’d heard intense words from LG, with executives being quote as having said LG might have been “prepared” to tackle Samsung. At that point, to demonstrate it wasn’t basically harmless, LG booked its own LG G5 launch occasion for the extremely same day as Samsung.

The LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 are seemingly two of the greatest Android handsets of the year. Google’s Nexus 2016 gadgets are presumably next on the vast majority’s rundowns, then Sony’s, then HTC and after that, raising the back, any semblance of OnePlus, Huawei and BlackBerry – it is evidently making two Android telephones in 2016.

Beside these, the space will probably be ruled by Apple’s iPhone 7 – this year is a configuration change year, all things considered, and they’re generally enormous ones, deals savvy. Be that as it may, I do accept both LG and Samsung made a sufficient sprinkle at MWC 2016 with their separate flagships that A LOT of clients in 2016 could well be drawn towards them over Apple’s iPhone 7.

Be that as it may, which of these two handsets is the best? How about we discover!

Samsung Galaxy S7 versus LG G5: Design and Display

We’re getting really acquainted with this situation now: the greater part of the gossipy tidbits for both handsets were practically spot on, so outline shrewd there aren’t numerous shocks.

Beginning with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, according to the gossip process the configuration is fundamentally the same for sure to a year ago’s Galaxy S6, close indistinguishable, indeed, with only a couple of additional unobtrusive bends on the back board that you may miss on the off chance that you squint. This is all fine, obviously, you won’t hear a peep of feedback from me about the style of the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S7 as I believe they’re both stellar looking gadgets with an exceptionally intriguing shape, and additionally being positively well-produced using top of the line, premium feel materials; glass and metal. There are a few contrasts however, and they’re of the more concealed assortment, for example, the arrival of a microSD space and full IP68 waterproofing. That last is accomplished through covering the segments and ports with a defensive layer, so there’s no requirement for any of those foolish port spreads.

See: Galaxy S7 Keyboard case and accessories

The Galaxy S7 is a 5.1in handset with a Super AMOLED display highlighting a QHD (2560 x 1440 pixel) determination at 577ppi. Samsung has likewise included a “Dependably On” display highlight, permitting the telephone to make full utilization of the capacity of OLED tech to specifically control singular pixels to demonstrate a restricted arrangement of data on-screen. Essentially, notwithstanding when the telephone is snoozing it can indicate notices, a clock, or a logbook in a low-control mode.

The greater part of the above basically applies to the Galaxy S7 edge too, albeit clearly this model has the bended edge display and outline from the Galaxy S6 edge, giving it a marginally diverse look which is exceptionally refined and smooth. The Galaxy S7 edge is bigger than its forerunner and its Galaxy S7 stable-mate, be that as it may, with a greater 5.5in display at 534ppi. Samsung has likewise extended the edge display screen usefulness to take into consideration more applications, alternate ways and data to be put away and displayed on the edge board.

The LG G5 Smartphone is in a few courses well known close by more seasoned LG models like the LG G4, additionally entirely particular in the meantime. For one thing, the entire thing is manufactured from metal – magnesium, to be exact – which is a first for LG, and practically the sum of the thing is a smooth unibody plan, with some rich bends and refined points here and there to flavor things up. The main noticable break in the suspension is the place the LG G5’s super gathering trap becomes possibly the most important factor; a removable measured base portion which permits access to the battery and card spaces, however has additionally been created in view of secluded adornments. In this way, LG has exhibited some XXL battery packs, a Bang and Olafson sound unit, and a custom camera module with implicit physical keys, however this is interested in outsider designers so the potential outcomes are very tempting.

Samsung Galaxy S7:

  • Measurements: 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9 mm, 152g (Galaxy S7 edge: 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7 mm, 157g) Display: 5.1in Super AMOLED, QHD 2560×1440 pixels, 577ppi (Galaxy S7 edge: 5.5in, 534ppi)

  • Battery: Removable Li-Po 2800 mAh battery

Samsung has been somewhat pulling so as to bother this year “an Apple” on a portion of the equipment specs, that is to say; not completely unveiling them and rather specifically dropping details it needs us to listen. The pre-dispatch bits of gossip let us know for quite a while that with the Galaxy S7 arrangement, generally as with past models, there would be both Qualcomm Snapdragon-based and Samsung Exynos-based processor variations, with 4GB of RAM. Samsung hasn’t formally discussed any of that, rather liking to tell all that CPU execution is 30% quicker, while GPU execution is 64% speedier. Notwithstanding the absence of point of interest, these affirmations, if genuine, are without a doubt uplifting news. What’s additionally flawless is the option of a PC-style fluid cooled heat channel and heatsink to dissapate warm far from the processor when under substantial workloads.

See: LG G5 cases and covers

Samsung additionally didn’t say the installed storage space, albeit prior holes have suggested the base model is a 32GB setup. There’s likewise no Type-C USB port, rather you get the old sort (not precisely a major issue, mind), but rather you do get up and coming 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC, generally as you do inside the LG G5. The Galaxy S7 handsets, obviously, don’t have removable battery cells, however you do get a genuinely strong 3000mAh inside the S7 and 3600mAh inside the S7 edge.

In the interim, LG was really forthright about the utilization of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with 4GB of RAM to power things along pleasantly, putting it on a comparable balance to no less than one of Samsung’s gadget variations. The battery is littler than Samsung’s, and littler than talk suggested at just 2800mAh, however you can uproot and supplant it – so swings and roundabouts.

Samsung Galaxy S7 versus LG G5: Camera

Cameras are truly getting a makeover in numerous 2016 handsets and both Samsung and LG have gone to endeavors to think of something intriguing.

Samsung has really diminished its megapixel rating down to a 12MP sensor, yet has changed things in different territories that mean more – like a world first double pixel sensor with 100% stage location self-adjust, a wide f/1.7 opening, and a bigger light-engrossing 1.4um pixel size. Allegedly the center velocity, picture quality and low-light execution are all really extraordinary.

LG hasn’t precisely slumped either however, with a double sensor setup highlighting both 16MP 75° wide-point and 8MP 135° wide-edge cameras on the back with f/1.8 and f/2.4 openings individually, and in addition an arrival of LG’s currently recognizable laser self-adjust, optical adjustment and 4K video recording. Likewise with past usage of double cameras the thought here is catching a LOT of visual information and after that permitting a lot of shrewd post-preparing and altering after catch.

The gap has closed that it had lagged behind Apple when it comes to design quality for some time, with recent releases.

This ultra-thin camera unit relies on Samsung’s proprietary technology that is ISOCELL, and enables the apparatus to consume considerably more light.

Processor

Samsung will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor for Galaxy S7 sold in China and the United States, and Samsung’s own Exynos chip for Galaxy S7 in other marketplaces. This will be a repeat of the policy that the corporation has utilized formerly. In accordance with this particular rumour, apparatus have appeared on the Geekbench standard database that seemed to support this proposition.

Samsung also use up 20 percent less power, and has also recently announced mass production of these new models run 30 percent faster than current 8 Gbit chips and new 12Gbit LPDDR4 DRAM chips for cellular devices. Placing these two great figures together, it surely implies that the Galaxy S7 will be an exceptionally strong performer.

Samsung is reportedly moving up the start of its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7, to January to be able to ramp up competition with Apple in the high-end cellphone market.

Samsung finalized the layout for the Galaxy S7 Smartphone by the end of September and is currently procuring the components it will have to enter production, South Korea’s Electronic Times reports, citing “many people in [smartphone] parts industries.”

Samsung may release Galaxy S7 flagship soon

By pushing forward the Galaxy S7, consumers could be given the choice of a brand new main smartphone before in the year. It is a strategic move on the part of the South Korean tech titan, who probably hopes the launch window that is distinct will give its smartphone a better possibility of undercutting sales of the iPhone 6S, which established last month. Both companies make some of the planet ‘s most popular phones and have traditionally faced little competition beyond each other at the top end of the smartphone market.

Check out Galaxy S7 vs. iPhone 6S comparison

It in July reported its seventh consecutive fall in gain, though it expects to return to growth in October and faces its first drop in yearly smartphone shipping, according to a report published by researchers. The launching of the Galaxy S6 in March failed to revive its fortunes, and as such the organization will need to give the Galaxy S7 the best possible odds of success by putting it in consumers’ hands sooner instead of later — and before they grow impatient and purchase an iPhone.

Historically Samsung has timed the launch of its own top smartphones — the Galaxy Note series and the Galaxy S range — to coincide with major international tech conventions, including Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. But this year it bucked the trend by coordinating a standalone event in August to launch the Galaxy Note 5, eschewing its September spot that was customary at the IFA event show in Berlin.

A change in the program could also see a change in entire smartphone strategy from the business, as stated by the Electronic Times. Rather than establish smartphones across three price categories — high end, mid-range and low end — Samsung will add a fourth smartphone tier, which it’ll call “sub premium” to potentially cater to consumers who want a solid phone, but aren’t willing to pay top dollar for one.

Samsung did not immediately react to a request for opinion.

But as per the rumours we got to known that they are also preparing Galaxy A9, Galaxy Note 6, Galaxy Note Edge 2 and Galaxy Grand 3 smartphone in row.

Samsung is preparing another duo of Samsung Galaxy S7 flagships

Oh, mobile tech launch cycle, for all the advanced, progressive technology you produce you are such a predictable old fuddy-duddy. It more-or-less goes like this every year folks; September sees IFA happen in Berlin where Sony and Samsung launch new devices, notably including the Galaxy Note, then Apple launches the new iPhones. Google is a little later than expected this year launching new Nexus hardware, but that’s coming at the end of the month rather than during June/July as it normally does. Then we’ll get some more new iPads in October/November…then pretty much nothing will happen until January, when CES will happen quickly followed by MWC in February/early March and THAT is when, as with most years, Samsung will launch a new Galaxy S flagship. Or probably two, as seems to be its MO these days.

samsung galaxy s6 vs galaxy s7

Yes it’s that time again. We’ve had the debut of the Galaxy Note 5 just ahead of September and Apple’s new crop of iPhones inside September itself, so now apart from eagerly awaiting the next Nexus from Google it’s time to start looking forward to early 2016 – and that means a new Samsung Galaxy S flagship! Let’s do it all over again!

The rambunctious rumour mill seems to often pipe up very early these days; we’re frequently seeing rumours of next-gen devices appear before a new generation of that model is even released. We’ve been seeing murmurs of the iPhone 7 months ahead of the recent iPhone 6s launch, for example. A similar thing happened with the Galaxy S7 too.

The UK is not getting the Galaxy Note 5 for the foreseeable. But there is some good news on the horizon, as it looks like Samsung will launch its Galaxy S7 handset earlier than expected.

Galaxy S7

Samsung Galaxy S7 Concept

“Samsung could launch its new Galaxy S7 smartphone in January, bringing it forward a month compared to its usual launch date in an effort to get the jump on Apple, its competitor in the high-end smartphone market,” reports The Independent. “As reported by South Korea’s Electronic Times, insiders in mobile phone component industries have said that Samsung is planning to launch the new flagship phone in January.”

This is a move no doubt intended to counter the HUGE effect Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are wreaking on the mobile space at large. Apple has sold in excess of 15 million handsets in a very short period of time and no one looks like it can stop the company. Can Samsung do what it did a few years ago and topple Apple once again?

Samsung has had a pretty turbulent couple of years. Back in 2012/13 it looked unstoppable but in 2015, largely due to the success of the iPhone 6, Samsung’s sales and profits and market share began to tumble. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 EDGE were designed to correct this but failed to deliver the goods with respect to overall sales. Apple’s iPhone 6 dwarfed Samsung’s flagships throughout 2015 and resulted in Samsung experiencing a HUGE 38% drop in operating profit for mobile in Q2.

Despite coming to the marketplace with two very compelling handsets in the form of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 EDGE, Samsung failed once again to give Apple any real trouble. Handset sales were worse than expected, leading to yet another drop in profits for the once-great Korean handset maker.

“Samsung flagged a second-quarter drop in operating profit on Tuesday that missed analyst estimates after sales of its newest flagship smartphonefailed to meet expectations,” report The Telegraph. “The earnings forecast came as a South Korean court ruled in Samsung’s favour against a US hedge fund’s efforts to block the proposed merger of two major affiliates. The giant smartphone and memory-chip maker predicted operating profit of around 6.9 trillion won (£4 billion) for the April-June period, down more than 4 per cent from a year earlier.”

Samsung blamed the lacklustre sales on not being able to produce enough Galaxy S6 EDGE units. Analysts, however, had other ideas and pointed towards a more sinister problem: long standing Android users defecting to iPhone. Throw in China for good measure, a market Apple smashed in 2015, and you have a recipe for bad earnings calls. With all this in mind, it’s no wonder Samsung has fast-tracked development of the Galaxy S7, the handset that will do battle with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

“Today’s rumor of the moment is that the two different screen diagonals are allegedly going to happen indeed, but they are reserved for the S7 versions with a flexible screen. Again, this is not hard to believe, given that we already have the S6 edge and S6 edge+. The kicker, however, is that the source now claims that the eventual S7 edge and S7 edge+ will be launched simultaneously,” reports Phone Arena. “If we fuse all these rumors together, the Galaxy S7 would arrive with several screen versions to suit every taste – one 5.2″ with flat panel, one 5.2″ with a curved one on the sides, and another one with flexible display that would be 5.7″ in size, all announced at the same time. This would be a pretty tough proposition to believe, so we’d wait until more light is shed on the matter in the form of leaks and tips.”

Initial rumours of the Samsung Galaxy S7 emerged far too early to be all that believeable (although the idea of a new model being worked on at that time was entirely plausible and, in fact, likely), surfacing very soon after the announcement of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. Those devices have been around for a while now though, and as we head towards Christmas and the new year, Samsung’s usual flagship bracket inside Q1 is also nearing at a pace. Meaning, of course, that Galaxy S7 rumours from here on out could carry a bit more weight.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Release Date

Long-time readers may remember way back, a few years ago, Samsung showed up at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas with several flexible OLED smartphone prototypes that wowed onlookers with promises of a foldable touchscreen smartphone future. Thus far, that future has failed to materialise, but things might be set to change in early 2016 and Samsung may be leading it, according to new reports.

Samsung has made no bones about the fact that it has been working on flexible display panel technology for some considerable time, even occasionally publishing concept videos, such as the one embedded below, showcasing what a working product might look like and how it will change our relationships with our tech.

Most recently that technology has manifested in commercially released products; the Galaxy S6 edge, for example, except in these instances the application has been implemented in the only way anyone (mostly LG and Samsung) has been able to get it to work so far — a flexible display curved into the desired shape (ie: curved edges) but then fixed in place with a rigid (though also curved) glass display panel on top. In other words, it doesn’t actually flex, it just has a fixed, curved shape.

Now though it seems Samsung is finally making plans to introduce genuine flexible devices inside 2016, January, in fact. The word comes via sources on Chinese network Weibo, which claims a so-called Project V or Project Valley is being tested with an aim to release in January. Samsung has previously released concept videos for flexible devices and during the Spring of 2015 did say it intended to introduce flexible devices to market next year.

It’s indicated as with previous revelations from Samsung’s working prototypes that the handset will involve the use of flexible plastic panels over the flexible OLED rather than using glass, which of course makes sense because glass doesn’t flex!

It also seems this model sees a genuine practical application of the flexible display as it appears to follow a sort of more traditional flip-phone or clam-shell form factor but with a touch display, meaning it can have a large-ish display panel but a smaller size in the pocket when folded.

The report claims that several prototypes are being tested with both Snapdragon 620 and Snapdragon 820 processors, but that both have 3GB of RAM, microSD support, and a sealed battery compartment.

As you can see from Samsung’s internal desgin documents and some patents unearthed by Patently Mobile for a “a mesh type textile sheet is attached as a cover of a foldable display apparatus. The display sits on top of this material.” This was patented back in 2014, so it seems Samsung has carried on developing the tech since then.

How will Project V fit into Samsung’s product portfolio? Will it be a new Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship variant like the edge category? We’re optimistic that it will. This all has, after all, been a long time ambition of Samsung. Hopefully we’ll be hearing a lot more between now and January so stay tuned.

Samsung Galaxy S7 To Feature ClearForce Pressure-Sensitive Display?

Oh, it seems it might be happening. Remember the iPhone 6s? That launch which happened only very recently? If you do then chances are you also recall that a big feature of the iPhone 6s is the pressure-sensitive 3D Touch display panel, which allows users to perform different actions depending on how hard they press the glass.

Well, apparently, Samsung may have a similar trick in store for the Galaxy S7, according to sources on Chinese social network Weibo. It’s claimed that Samsung plans to use what’s called ClearForce display technology to offer similar pressure-sensitive activation, however, this tech, it’s said, may offer even more complex control input than Apple’s 3D Touch, including variable speed scrolling and specific touch input tailored for gaming.

Samsung Galaxy S7 To Pack Exynos 8890 Processor, 3GB/4GB RAM AND Dual Camera?

Rumours circulating as of October 8 indicate that there may be as many as three processor variant models for the Galaxy S7. The word comes via reputable source SamMobile, which claims that there will be Exynos 7422, Exynos 8890 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 variants of the device. The report suggest the 7422 model will retail in India, the 8890 will retail in Asia and Europe, while the Snapdragon 820 model will be in North America.

According to reports from September 14, Samsung may be prepping a new Exynos processor for use inside the Samsung Galaxy S7. However, with that said there are multiple reports of Galaxy S7’s being benchmarked with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip, so it appears it is a return to Samsung’s old model of a Qualcomm-based version for North America and Europe, while Asia gets the home-grown Exynos hardware.

“The Galaxy S7 is codenamed Project Lucky internally,” reports Sam Mobile, “but the company is referring to these devices as Hero and Hero2. It is expected to be released in two variants, one with an Exynos 8890 processor and the other with the Snapdragon 820 SoC. Qualcomm has already shipped a newer prototype of the Snapdragon 820 chipset to Samsung, and it appears that this new chipset has better performance than the previous prototype.”

Still, the Exynos hardware has shown up via new Geekbench benchmarks where previously the Snapdragon 820 was spotted in multiple testbeds, including AnTuTu. The database lists a “Project Lucky-LTE” and a plain ol’ “Project Lucky”, both using the Exynos 8890 chip, codenamed Mongoose. Curiouser and curiouser, it seems the non-LTE model packs 3GB of RAM while the LTE-enabled variant (using one of Samsung’s own LTE modems) has 4GB.

Meanhwile, a slightly earlier report from September 11, coming via Korean source MK.co.kr, claims that Samsung will begin ramping up Galaxy S7 production in January 2016 ready for a reveal in February. Lastly this rumour also claims Samsung is toying with the idea of an HTC One M8 style dual-sensor camera, although there are no further details about this at present.

Samsung Exynos 8890 Benchmarked At 2.4GHz Yields Impressive Results – DOUBLES Galaxy S6 Exynos 7420 Score!

The Exynos 8890-equipped Galaxy S7 has already been benchmarked before, but notably at some fairly low clockspeeds. Now, however, it has rocked up in Geekbench clocked at 2.4GHz, the highest speed so far. This was unearthed by a prominent Weibo-based processor-focused leakster and what’s really exciting is the result scores, which for both single-core and multi-core tests are pretty much double the scores of the impressively fast last-gen Exynos 7420 found inside the Galaxy S6 and its stable-mates.

Two Samsung Galaxy S7 Devices In The Works

As of September 9 (that’s iPhone launch day, for those who didn’t know!) a new report has emerged  claiming that Samsung is at work on two Galaxy S7 models, one with a 5.2in display, and the other with a 5.8in screen; meaning it’s more of a phablet really. The source is quoted by Korean publication Asia Times as having claimed the 5.2in model will be the “standard” Galaxy S7 version, though that’s not exactly surprising to be honest.

The other titbit of info mentions a 4K display, however, it isn’t specified if this is the 5.2in version, the 5.8in, or both. Either way it seems Samsung is trying to beat Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium at its own game, which, if taken literally, could hint at the phablet being the UltraHD monster as that’s certainly the case with Sony’s offering as the largest in the group, but even there it’s only 5.5in, which isn’t really THAT big these days.

Also of note is the claim of 4GB of onboard RAM for the Galaxy S7 (presumably both versions?), meaning Samsung’s recently revealed 6GB RAM hardware isn’t getting a look-in this time round.

A benchmark for what is claimed to be the larger variant of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 has leaked online. Originally found by Telefoonabonnement, a Dutch webiste, the leaked AnTuTu benchmark appears to detail some key elements of the upcoming Galaxy S7 flagship, as you can see below:

Obviously NONE of this can be taken as gospel, but AnTuTu has proved a pretty reliable source for decent leaks in the past, so we’re prepared to give this one the benefit of the doubt. All in all, the specs are what you’d expect: a slight bump up from the Galaxy S6, though interestingly the handset is labeled as rocking a Snapdragon 820 CPU.

Lastly, there is one snippet from this report which casts the whole thing in a suspicious light, that is the claim that Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S7 by the end of 2015 rather than waiting for its usual Q1 slot in the new year. Colour us skeptical.

Samsung Galaxy S7 With FOLDING FLEXIBLE OLED TOUCHSCREEN?!

Ok, so yes this may be a bit way out there but bear with us a second. It’s a well known fact that Samsung has been working on flexible OLED technology for years, with the ultimate goal of bringing us flexible screen smartphones and other mobile devices that fold. This is known because Samsung itself has been very vocal about it all, publishing concept videos and attending expos with working prototypes for several years now.

Samsung has been making progress with the tech. So far this has only materialised in a few specific forms, however, namely the Samsung Galaxy edge series devices with curved display edges, including the Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note edge. LG’s also been working on the same tech and produced the LG G Flex and LG G Flex 2. In all cases they use flexible OLED screens but in a fixed curved form factor layered over with rigid glass – you get a curved display, but not one that actually flexes much, if at all.

Now, however, there are rumours that Samsung may be making breakthroughs with the technology, so much so that it may, if the whispers are accurate, be aiming to produce a flexible OLED phone by early 2016, something it has publicly stated an ambition to do before. It just so happens that early 2016 is also when new Galaxy S7 models are also rumoured to arrive.

The word comes via sources on Chinese network Weibo, which claims a so-called Project V or Project Valley is being tested with an aim to release in January. The report claims that several prototypes are being tested with both Snapdragon 620 and Snapdragon 820 processors, but that both have 3GB of RAM, microSD support, and a sealed battery compartment.

Multiple patents and internal Samsung design documents have also emerged showing some of the innovative folding designs, specifically showing Samsung experimenting with flexible mesh designed to avoid deterioration of the display panel at the folding point.

None of this is conclusive evidence that the Galaxy S7 will feature a folding form-factor and flexible OLED, of course. However, what is important to note is that Samsung has got into the habit of introducing special variant models to debut its flexible OLED technology alongside more traditionl models already; again you only have to look at the Galaxy Note edge and Galaxy S6 edge launching alongside their non-edge counterparts to see this. Could this mean that in early 2016 we see a Samsung Galaxy S7 accompanied by some special folding Galaxy S7 variant with a tweaked name? We are hopeful.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Details Emerge

The last time we heard a mention of the Galaxy S7 was in relation to Samsung developing its own CPU core for use inside its next flagship. According to that information, plans are afoot at the company’s Korean HQ to develop its very own custom processor core, meaning no more stock ARM Cortex CPU cores.

But we’ll come back to that in a bit.

Another bit of info from the rumour mill came from Digitimes and Korean news source Newsis, the latter of which claimed to have heard from its insider sources that Samsung has plans to launch the Galaxy S7 during the second half of 2015, rather than waiting until early 2016 as many expected.

But according to a subsequent statement from Samsung itself, that’s all a load of complete gumpf, hokum, twaddle, or whatever you like to call it.

A Samsung marketing spokesperson explained to MobileBurn:

“The company remains committed to launching products in pre-determined launch windows, which includes the S series.”

Or in other words, it’s sticking to a 12 monthly cycle with an early year launch, probably at MWC like last time, so look out for MWC 2016 in late February/early March.

Still, as we said at the start of the article, you can rest assured there is definitely a Galaxy S7 in the works, it just won’t come until 2016.

What about that processor architecture rumour?

Apple has been doing something similar for a while developing its own Cyclone processor cores. Ditto Qualcomm with its Krait and upcoming KRYO setup. The benefits of such an approach are myriad; firms have more control over APIs, performance, functionality and efficiency.

A move such as this was always on the cards. Samsung has been investing heavily in its chip-making arm, so it stands to reason the company would want to begin developing its own, bespoke custom processor core just like its now arch-rival Qualcomm.

“Samsung is almost ready to finally release its own processing core next year,” reports Phone Arena, “perhaps in time for the Galaxy S7.

Samsung’s System LSI Division has been working on a proprietary 64-bit core for four years and will no longer be using the default ARM Cortex designs, according to a reports from Korea.

“The current Exynos 7420 in the Galaxy S6 is plenty powerful, but still, in its single-core performance, it is no match for the proprietary Apple A8 chipset, despite the latter being clocked at much slower speeds,” the report added.

Qualcomm is set to debut its new KRYO core later on this year. At the time of writing there is no solid information about the roadmap for Samsung’s solution, save for the nod to its inclusion inside 2016’s Galaxy S7.

According to a report from April 27, more details have emerged regarding Samsung’s custom “Mongoose” cores. The word comes via KitGuru, which has identified some interesting titbits in ARM’ latest developer toolset for ARM core architecture, allegedly as well as containing support for ARM A17 and A72 cores, it also supports a “Samsung Exynos M1” core, aka “Mongoose”. Not a great deal is known about the core architecture other than allegations that it is a Heterogeneous Sytem Architecture.

A new set of information circulating as of August 11 suggests that the Galaxy 7 may pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, or at the very least there may be a variant which does. The word comes via Chinese social network Weibo, where a leaked document details some goings on inside Samung. According to this, a “Hero” device (ie: a flagship) will be equipped with a MSM8996 processor – aka the Snapdragon 820. There is also mention of what’s believed to be a new Android  build, probably Android M, codenamed as “Jungrau” – a name already associated with the Galaxy 7 in earlier rumours.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Rumors

Samsung is going to launch Galaxy Smartphone at 7 pm on 21st February. We are covering everything that you must know about Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Smartphone here in our blog.

Samsung seems to be on a flagship smartphones spree that is creating, having declared the new Samsung Galaxy S7 that is expected to make an appearance in early 2016.

The Galaxy S7 goes by the codename “Project Lucky” to refer to the hopefully fortuitous seventh generation of Samsung’s Galaxy phone line and it’s already been inspiration to many devotees and technology enthusiasts who are trafficking rumours all over the internet. And of course from here rumours can only intensify as the release date comes closer.

So in order in order to follow along with the latest news, let us make a rumour roundup about Samsung’s new main smartphone that is probable.

Samsung Galaxy S7: Layout & Screen

This is a rumour we’ve mentioned before and it seems to be getting more and more actual. The Galaxy S7 is thought to feature a magnesium alloy unibody design, instead of the glass body seen on the S6. This would make the S7 a lot more invulnerable than its forerunners.

Additionally, according to some rumours coming right from the Korean outlet Kbench, Samsung may leave aside the Corning’s Gorilla Glass that it’s been using so far and go with its own screen saving technology, called Turtle Glass.

Another Korean website, VIP.MK prepares us to see a 5.7inch display on the S7, which is a big step forwards taken from the S6’s 5.1inch screen. Other speculations include Samsung by additionally updating the resolution from 2K to 4K., taking it up against its Xperia Z5 Premium and Sony Neither a fact, nor a veto.

Galaxy S7 Specs and Technical Attributes

SamMobile has leaked an extremely fascinating rumour, asserting that we could see the Galaxy S7 running with a Snapdragon 820 processor or a new Exynos 8890 chip plus a 20 -megapixel rear camera. However there are no other hints to indicate which processor we’ll see. And any attempts to guess would be 99% so it is not quite proposed, based on chance. Astonishingly enough, the speed of the apparatus is reported to be 3.5 GHz which is fairly close and in many cases more than a decent desktop computer. Perhaps Samsung is after all trying to bring the power of computer to our palm.

However, we have to say that Qualcomm has announced that its next generation chip should be obtainable in early 2016 so the time likely fits. On the other hand, Exynos makes an increasingly regular appearance on Samsung’s latest versions so one could say it is a tie.

As for the 20MP chief shooter, it is exciting but does not strike as a surprise. Come to consider it, if it doesn’t desire the S7 to fail due to the lousy time Samsung must make some noticeable progress.

Other than that, while SamMobile supports that Samsung could potentially herald the return of microSD storage to the Galaxy series, we anticipate to see the exact same RAM of 4 GB just like the S6 Edge Plus along with the Note 5. Not necessarily a bad move as some extra storage capacity is always welcomed and with such RAM and processing power the user would not even notice any difference.

Galaxy s7 Rumours will surely keep up building but finally we’ll have to wait until this February to see what is true and what is not. Furthermore, Samsung has a record for making important announcements at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, which takes places from February 22 to 25, 2016.

If authentic, the magnesium alloy design should make the Samsung Galaxy S7 lightweight and fairly long-lasting, not to mention add the method also in some heat dissipation.

There isn’t any clear word on what chip the following Galaxy apparatus would be using, although there’s supposedly a foldable device being analyzed called Project V.

Then the chip being used is 820 chipset and a Snapdragon 620, if this is actually the Galaxy S7. Furthermore, the spotted apparatus come with provisions for microSD and will come with 3 GB of RAM, significance people won’t have to worry about storage that is small. The apparatus will, nevertheless, come with a nonremovable battery.
