Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd  announced the newest additions to the Galaxy family of products,
Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Created for today’s consumer
lifestyle, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge lead the industry with a refined

“We believe in a world that is brighter,
sharper, more convenient, and more fun. We strive to deliver on that
vision with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge by marrying elegant design
with functionality and providing a seamless mobile experience,” said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics.
“We empower consumers with technology to help them get more out of life
and will continue to push the frontier of what’s possible.”
Advanced Camera: High Quality Images No Matter the Time of Day or Location
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge introduce the
first Dual Pixel camera on a smartphone, delivering brighter and
sharper images, even in low light. Thanks to the revolutionary Dual
Pixel technology, brighter lens with wider aperture, and bigger pixel,
the camera has a faster shutter speed and a more accurate autofocus even
in low-light conditions. Motion Panorama, a new camera mode, brings
movement to traditional panoramic photos, giving the user a completely
immersive visual experience.

Refined Design and Function
The 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 and 5.5-inch Galaxy
S7 edge are constructed with 3D glass and metal – all in a sleek design
with durability and ergonomic curves for a comfortable grip. From work
to play, the device’s new Always-On Display, gives users a simplified,
zero touch experience where they don’t need to worry about missing a
call or important notification.
Without compromising design, Galaxy S7 and
Galaxy S7 edge both have increased utility with IP68 water and dust
resistance. Edge UX, the advanced edge experience available on Galaxy S7
edge, provides convenience and increased efficiency by creating easy
shortcuts to users’ most loved functions such as email, selfie mode,
panorama mode or third party applications.
Enhanced Performance: From Charging to Gaming
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge deliver fast
wired and wireless charging technology. Additionally, the hybrid SIM
card tray allows users to insert a microSD card for up to 200GB of
additional storage and in some select countries, the tray can be used
with a dual SIM card.
Samsung also made significant hardware and
software updates to optimize gaming performance on Galaxy S7 and Galaxy
S7 edge. The powerful processer and bigger battery capacity ensure
longer playing time, and the internal cooling system keeps the device
from overheating. Game Launcher, a new add-on for gamers, allows users
to manage battery consumption and minimize notifications. Additionally,
users can record their gaming experience or share their screen to play
with others. Paired with Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, Vulkan API gives
users the ability to play high-performance graphic games with lower
battery consumption.

The Galaxy Experience
Samsung continues to push the boundaries
of hardware, software and services to create devices that are designed
to improve how consumers connect, share, organize and get more out of
life. The company is redefining what is possible, beyond the limits of
today’s technology, by introducing a constellation of seamless mobile
Whether it’s the seamless connection
between Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge and the new Gear S2 Classic to
monitor fitness, or connecting with Gear VR to “travel” the world –
Samsung redefines what’s possible for the mobile experience and beyond.
Beyond the phone, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7
edge users can also get the best mobile payment service with Samsung
Pay; it’s secure, easy-to-use and accepted almost anywhere. Protected by
Samsung KNOX, fingerprint scanning and advanced tokenization, Samsung
Pay works with NFC (Near Field Communication), MST (Magnetic Secure
Transmission) and Barcode technology, making mobile payments available
to more merchants and consumers than ever before.
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will be available starting mid-March 2016.
