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!

The specs we already knew. But yea, definitely a placeholder. That ain't the S7.

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 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?

62. MrElectrifyer (Posts: 2934; Member since: 21 Oct 2014)


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.

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

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

Also not to mention the resale value of nuxes sucks arse, I have my G4 with me which is my first and last non samsung and iPhone purchase, trying to sell it on Gumtree and nobody, not even my friends are interested in buying it, all other phones' resale value are crap except for samsung and iPhone. Whatever it is, my next upgrade will only be a Samsung or iPhone.

The present iPhone with all the latest updates still does less than a 2 year old Galaxy S5.

Dude again you don't get it. You're so obsess with one phone.

I like any phone. The only lyrics phones I have never bought was Nexus. Why? I don't like Vanilla Android. .
Which has also kept me away from LG.

I've never liked Samsung devices in the beginning. The first I had was a flip and then a Droid Charge.

Today I do like the Note. There is no other phone in its class if you look beyond size. Even if the Note never sells in the numbers the iPhone and it likely wont, it doesn't mean it isn't a better phone.

I don't buy what people think is better, I buy what is best for me.

I use to love HTC and Sense. After the Incredible, HTC got sloppy and sense got heavy and laggy. Never tried Sony Becker they aren't an option at carriers.

I used Samsung because it had the features I like. No more or less. As soon as I think someone has better I will buy it. Right now I feel no one does, at least vs the Note.

If I had an S I could use an iPhone or any phone.
I like the iPhone, I just don't like the present one all that much. It is nice. I don't hate those who own or use iPhones.

I hate fans who have them because they act like you. Biased fans can only see one way.

Nexus phones are plain and boring, offer no advanced features. The oyster benefit they have is fast updates. Yet the recent Nexus does less than a S5.

Likely they'll be competing with LG fir best low light. The high MP count on the LG will win it the daylight crown...We'll have to see what wins lowlight: big pixels or dual camera

dual camera is for bokeh effect and wide angle shot. It is not going to improve any lowlight photos or any improvement in quality

I can guarantee that two cameras can take a better picture than one if setup correctly. I bet you see better in the dark with two eyes than you do with one.

52. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 857; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)


what a useless example. two eyes are used in real time for seeing the same thing and one processed image in the mind. If they will imply this technology of real time merging of a picture from both cams into one then it will be great otherwise it is not going to do your so called "you can see better with two eyes in dark" stuff. And this tech will require a lot of software programming. Only nokia was able to do a software work with pureview tech and it took nokia 5 years to develop. Eyes are eyes and cams are cams. There is still a very long road to implement eyes like capabilities in cameras.
Most important, I bet you are better of without a brain than with a brain.

Having two cameras let's you take in twice as much light in the same period of time. It's the reason we see better with two eyes than one. Instead of using HDR functions or increasing exposure time, two cameras can do just that in half the time. This will reduce potential for camera shake, thus increasing lowlight effectiveness.

Did I explain that enough for you?

55. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 857; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)


this tech is not acheived yet in mobile phones dear. You are here and I am also here, I will see how lg is going to use two camera for more light capturing. They will have some improvement but nothing significant. You are probably over expecting or optimistic, well, that is in fact a good thing. Bcoz we should always expect good things to come. But these companies are not on the level of implementing such tech at the moment. May be in one or two years more but not at the current moment. I always advocate for using two cameras and merging the pic in real time like human eyes for better result but I know it require a lot of software perfection and no company is willing to invest much in software development at the moment. They will use two cameras for, mostly silly bokeh effect and wide angle shot and least for light improvement.

What you should understand, is that the tech we use is based off what we see in the world. If you observe in the world what works, then you have a better chance at reflecting that in tech.

The way that phone cameras focus light on a little sensor through a number of lenses with a shutter is similar to how we have an iris that changes the aperture which the light is focused into the pupil onto the tiny little retina. You wouldn't believe how much tech is (un-)consciously inspired by biolgy.

The zoom will be the same as the 16mp due to the size of the pixels
I.e. It not just any 12 mp cam, it will have better zoom than the nexus 6p without even trying, the big thing will be it will make the iPhone cam look crap
And it will be 100% better than the s6 or Samsung will not have changed

I'm interested to see what Samsung did with the new camera... Everyone is speculating that the drop in megapixels means a drop in pics and zoom but I doubt Samsung will pull an htc.

20. j2001m (Posts: 2941; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)


That just crap as the size of the pixes are way bigger than the 16mp
Plus Samsung does wide screen so the cam will be bigger than 12mp if it was 4:3 out of the box, it will be the same as the 16mp cam

Also htc was only 4mp 4:3 so it was junk out of the box, way to low

Also it's not just about taking images in low light, when you limited on lens size due to size of phone, the way they doing it will make the phone take way better images in the light than the s6, you also will find it will zoom in with less mess up in image, so the zooms will also be better in the light and dark areas

Apple bumped camera to 12MP...google found 12MP lens in sony's pro camera yard...why is samsung going for 12MP?

Their existing 16MP is already very good...just improve your 16MP camera instead of reducing resolution for pixe size.

There's absolutely no issue with a 12 megapixel camera. The Sony A7S, just about the most expensive mirrorless on the market, uses a 12 megapixel sensor.

2016 will be really tough on Samsung. So far its looks like S7 will be pretty underwhelming device. No wonder LG is willing to take Samsung head on with their G5.
