Zauba, one of India’s import and export data webpages, leaked the screen sizes of the Samsung Galaxy S7, and the Galaxy S7 edge on Friday. The Zauba listing disclosed that the flagships are going to be equipped with a 5.1-inch screen for the Galaxy S7 and a 5.5-inch display for its curved sibling – the Galaxy S7 Edge.
According to Zauba, two units of each of the two variants have been shipped to India for testing without revealing their valid IMEI numbers, at a price of USD 351.57 each unit (approx. Rs. 23,800). Do note that, Samsung might not necessarily price the devices at that cost and the markup might be much higher.
Internally codenamed, ‘Project Lucky’, the Galaxy S7 has a rumoured model number of SM-G930R4. Concurrently, the Galaxy S7 edge is said to have the model number, SM-G935R4. Both the phones are expected to have a QHD 1440×2560 resolution with a Super AMOLED display that tends to save power and also provide a richer gamut of colours.
Just recently, the Samsung Galaxy S7 (Exynos variant) was spotted on Antutu, featuring a 5.1-inch QHD display. While the S7 edge is expected to have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC. Both the versions could sport a 12-megapixel (codenamed BRITECELL) rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Speculations suggest that Samsung has gone ahead to employ a 1/2-inch sensor in the rear camera that would make the pixels larger and enhance the images.
Samsung Unpacked 2016 event is expected to unveil these high-end phones in the month of February, right before the MWC in Barcelona.
