Between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, approximately 100,000 devices were sold within two days of the official launch in South Korea.
According to the data from Strategy Analytics, Samsung devices also accounted for the top three most popular Android devices during the first half of 2016. The Galaxy S7 Edge came in on top with 13.3 million shipments, while the Galaxy J2 saw shipments of 13 million and the Galaxy S7 saw shipments of 11.8 million units.
S7 Edge measures 5.5 inches diagonally. It has Super Amoled panels, and with a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels, or Quad-HD. While the smaller of the one has a 3000mAh battery, the bigger one has enough space to accommodate 3600mAh unit.
Samsung sells the phone with its own Exynos 8890 SoC in India and some other countries, while others get Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820. The Exynos 8890 has eight CPU cores, four of which are a custom in-house design called Mongoose and run at up to 2.6GHz, while the other four use ARM’s Cortex-A53 design and run at 1.5GHz. It also features integrated ARM Mali -T880 graphics, and LTE Cat 12/13 support. These are all cutting-edge specs and performance should be equivalent to that of the Snapdragon 820 – though proprietary features such as Qualcomm’s Zeroth AI platform don’t seem to be accounted for either way.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone was launched in February 2016.
The Galaxy S7 Edge has a few unique touches, such as being able to flash a specific colour for a few designated contacts, and a clock that you can see at night if you’re lying down. The most notable though is its Edge Panels. Pull the floating white tab on the right inwards to reveal a series of vertical strips – one for app shortcuts, one for shortcuts to common functions within the default apps, one for people, and one for news. You can flip through these by swiping a thumb, and you can download more from Samsung or third parties.
With these amazing specs, I am not surprised the Samsung S7 edge was able to achieve this rare feat, or are you?
