At the beginning of this week, Samsung announced the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge — its flagship handsets for at least the first half of 2016. The company has vastly improved its latest handsets in some key areas compared to its predecessors, and in many ways, the Galaxy S7 is superior to its chief rival: the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
The folks over at SamMobile have discovered that Samsung has once again turned to Sony for providing the imaging sensors on its flagship handsets. Samsung also makes its own image sensors and the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge were rumored to use the company’s new BRITCELL technology sensors, but that is not the case.
Yesterday, Samsung unveiled its first flagship handsets for 2016: the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Apart from major upgrades to the internal components of the device, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge also feature IP68 water resistance capabilities. That’s not all though; the phones are packed with a lot of little things that you might have missed in Samsung’s official unveiling of the handset.
