Recently, we’ve been coming across a number of reports that claim to know more about the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S7’s and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge’s screen sizes. Sadly, reports are conflicting. The common consensus is that the regular Galaxy S7’s screen will measure 5.1 inches. As for the Galaxy S7 Edge, most reports claim that its screen will measure 5.5 inches, but a recent report claimed that it would measure 5.1 inches just like the regular S7. Now, a new listing may have just revealed the S7 Edge’s actual screen size.
Screen sizes revealed on Zauba
Hungarian-speaking NapiDroid.hu spotted the listing on Zauba (screenshot above). Zauba, India’s import-export database, has been the source of information that sheds light on yet to be announced devices, since manufacturers send prototypes of unannounced devices to India for testing.
Going back to the listing, it reveals that 2 units of the SM-G935R4 (believed to be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) and 2 units of the SM-G930R4 (believed to be a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7) entered India “for testing.” Aside from the revealing that test units of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have entered the country for testing purposes, the listing also reveals the devices’ screen sizes. The listing reveals that the S7’s screen will measure 5.1 inches, while the S7 Edge’s screen will measure 5.5 inches.
Lastly, the listing reveals that devices’ IMEI numbers were withheld and that they are valued at approximately £245. We’re sure, however, that the two will be priced higher once they do hit the market.
Past reports have revealed a lot of information on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Aside from their screen sizes, reports claim that units for the US and China will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the international version (version to be available in the UK) will feature the Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. Unlike the S6 and the S6 Edge, the S7 and S7 Edge are said to feature a microSD card slot for additional storage options. In the photography department, the Korean tech giant’s next flagship is expected to feature a new and larger 12-megapixel rear-facing camera that is ideal for snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. As for design, the two are said to look a lot like their predecessors.
Samsung is expected to lift the lid on the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain (a day before MWC 2016 kicks off), and launch the devices soon after their unveiling.
