Samsung’s Galaxy S7 handsets are refined versions of Galaxy S6

South Korean device maker Samsung unveiled its next-generation Galaxy flagship handsets -- Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge -- at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona, Spain, this past weekend.

The new Galaxy handsets are quite similar in external design to the current-generation Galaxy S6 handsets, but boast a number of subtle enhancements.

Just like the Galaxy S6 handsets, the new Galaxy S7 models have an attractively sculptured aircraft-grade aluminum frame which encases the glass on both sides. The physical dimensions of the Galaxy S7 devices are also quite similar to those of Galaxy S6 handsets, though the new handsets are comparatively thicker in size and 14 grams heavier in weight.

Some of the refinements which Samsung has made to the new Galaxy 7 handsets, vis-à-vis the Galaxy S6, include a slightly downward curve of the top-side of the display for greater convenience on the ear; a bigger non-removable battery; a more premium feel in hand; and new processors -- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 -- together with an additional gigabyte of RAM.

Furthermore, in the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge handsets, Samsung has also corrected some mistakes which it had made with Galaxy S6 devices. The company has brought back the memory expansion card on the new Galaxy models; and has also included IP68 water and dust proofing.
