Samsung Mobile's new president speaks out about the future

Samsung Mobile's new president speaks out about the future
Samsung has trotted out the new president of its mobile division, Dongjin Koh, so that he could discuss his vision for the future of Samsung's smartphone business. "We should try something new. Something never done before," said the executive when asked about the stagnant mobile market. He points out how it was the Samsung Galaxy Note that created the phablet craze. The executive stated that he always put people first during his more than thirty years working at Samsung. Prior to getting the gig as president of Samsung's mobile division, he was in charge of mobile R&D.

Koh steps onto the public stage just as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge are both set to be unveiled this coming Sunday, February 21st, during the Samsung Unlocked event. We've seen numerous leaked images of both models, and you should probably expect to see more in the days ahead. 

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are both expected to feature IP67 certification for dust and water resistance. You should be able to submerge either phone into water as deep as 3.2 feet for as long as 30 minutes, and have it emerge unscathed. Water resistance was a feature that Sammy offered on the Samsung Galaxy S5, but did away with on the Samsung Galaxy S6 (except for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, of course). Also returning is the microSD slot, which also disappeared with last year's model. And after a year of trying to get by with lower capacity batteries, the Galaxy S7 will be powered by a 3000mAh juicer and the Galaxy S7 edge will come to market with a 3600mAh power plant inside. That compares with the 2550mAh and 2600mAh cells inside the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, respectively.
