Samsung Galaxy S7 specs possibly exposed in leaked presentation slide

Presentation slide possibly exposing Galaxy S7 specs

Presentation slide possibly exposing Galaxy S7 specs


Rumor has it that we're less than a month away from the Galaxy S7 announcement. Samsung's next flagship will likely make an appearance at MWC 2016, which is scheduled to take place in Barcelona between February 22 and February 25. And since Galaxy S phones are known to generate quite a lot of excitement, it comes as no surprise that Samsung Galaxy S7 rumors have been pouring over the past few weeks. In fact, here's a little something that was just slipped under our own door. 

We're sure that you've already noticed the image above. It was sent to us by an anonymous source who claims to be a Samsung employee, and while we can't call it a fake right away, we can't guarantee its authenticity either. With this disclaimer laid out, the photo appears to reveal specs for the Galaxy S7 – a 5.1-inch 1440p display, a 12MP BRITECELL camera, and 4GB of RAM. Both the Snapdragon 820 and the Exynos 8890 chips are being mentioned, which suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S7 may have one of the two SoCs inside it, depending on the market – a practice that we've seen in the past. On a related note, the specs mentioned in the slide line up with what we saw recently in that supposed Samsung Galaxy S7 benchmark

As for the "Galaxy S7" phone shown in the image, we're most likely looking at a placeholder. But we're hearing that the next great Galaxy phone will be very similar to the Galaxy S6 in terms of design. Therefore, it seems safe to say that what's shown in the slide isn't too far from the truth.  

That's about all the information we can extract out of the image we were sent, assuming that we're looking at a real internal presentation, not at a forgery. For more details about Samsung's next flagship phone, take a look at our Galaxy S7 rumor review.

Thanks for sending this in!

And don't forget to write BRITECELL in capitals, because 12 megapixel camera is DISAPPOINTING (no lossless zoom). Only photos for social media now. Other companies go for over 20

So you love waterpaintings in low light?

I for one applaud Samsung for this move to get bigger pixels, if the 1/2" inch sensor size is true this thing might just have the best camera of any flagships next year.

But what matters on any camera is just being able to see that fly, on the building that's 100m away on a perfect sunny day. Screw low light, screw overcast days, screw night, screw indoors and screw situations in low light that you need a fast shutter speed as opposed to a high megapixel count. I want to see you try take a picture of a toddler indoors in low light with those cameras you love so much, then you can show the toddler's parents how much you can zoom in on the blur.

I'm lost. Are you being sarcastic? "12mp is disappointing" and "only photos for social media now" is a bit contradicting.

Mp doesn't matter that much.

I would say it matters a lot in a good system

Note 5 left, 1020 right.

Notice how the less MP cannot capture certain details, and while this is an extreme zoom, its the lossless zoom that starts to matter or the ability to crop etc.

Are you working for the CSI? Why do you need that level of zoom?

Do you have to be working for the CSI to want better details of far away objects? For example, when you take a 41MP picture of say a clock tower from it's base, you could easily zoom in and crop out a statue on that clock tower as if that's what you were taking an up-close picture of, without any loss of quality.

Think only CSI is interested in statues on clock towers or any other far away objects?

True, but who do you know that zooms there phone that much. Smartphone cameras are best for pointing and shooting not trying to take shots like professional using a dslr.

Coastcity..the only lossless zoom is optical zoom. Digital zoom us a joke an nowhere near lossless. You take a 16mp image and "losslessly" zoom....it's now 12 or 8mp....you just lost Alot of information in the photo.

Coastcity you should read a bit about megapixels before you make a post....Your comment here is pointless

the only smartphones that matter are iphone and nexus.

if you want premium, you buy iphone
if you are on a budget, buy a nexus
if you just need a phone, then buy a sub $100 android phone

And when you're clueless and stupid, then we'll you tend to stay that way.

The Galaxy S outsells the Nexus 10 to 1

only iphone and nexus phones are running the latest software with timely updates.

only iphone and nexus phones have bands that are compatible with both CDMA and GSM carriers, which is important because many carriers now offer competitive contract-free plans

only iphone and nexus phones gives your best software experience without rooting. while rooting your phone is fun for customization, id rooted my samsung phones to get rid of samsung bloatwares, wouldn't do it again otherwise.

custom roms are buggy and created by amateurs
rooting your phone expose yourself to security risk, who knows if security backdoors are built into custom roms that record your passwords. i'd never do any mobile banking on a rooted phones

hardwares upgrades aren't that important anymore. it's all about software, with samsung phones, you'd need to root them

Same with ios. It looks so cartoonish and old.
