Samsung just took the wraps off its brand new Galaxy smartphones. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge feature improved cameras, faster performance and longer battery life, among a myriad of other features. The highlight, however, has got to be the return of a microSD card slot and IP68 water-resistant rating, both of which were favorite features that didn’t make it into the Galaxy S6.
The Galaxy S7 is equipped with a 5.1-inch display touting a 2,560×1,440-pixel resolution and a 12-megapixel camera. The phone is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and comes with either 32GB or 64GB of storage, along with a 3,000 mAh battery (a big step up from the 2,550 mAh of the Galaxy S6). The Galaxy S7 Edge adds adds a larger 5.5-inch display with curved edges and 3,600mAh battery.
This year there’s an added incentive to preorder the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Samsung will offer its Gear VR headset, which usually costs $100, for free for users who preorder either device. To sweeten the deal, Samsung will also be throwing in six virtual reality games with the headset. The offer is valid with a two-year contract, a device installment plan, a leasing plan or when you purchase the phone outright at full retail price.
