This year Samsung decided to go with the company's Exynos 7420 processor for both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge instead of Snapdragon 810. As per the rumors floating around the internet, both Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge might use Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor. Amid speculations, now the online community got hold of the model numbers of both of the devices.


According to this list, the Galaxy S7 (SM-G930) and S7 edge (SM-G935) will be released with either the Exynos or Snapdragon processor. This choice will be dependent on the market condition and wireless carriers. The devices featuring Snapdragon 820 are listed for China (SM-G9300, SM-G9350), Verizon (SM-G930V, SM-G935V), Sprint (SM-G930P, SM-G935P) and US Cellular (SM-G930R4, SM-G935R4). Please note that most probably these models will be used for CDMA carriers.


On the contrary the international unlocked models like T-Mobile (SM-G930T, SM-G935T), AT&T (SM-G930A, SM-G935A), Canada (SM-G930W8, SM-G935W8) and Korean variants (SM-G930 S/K/L, SM-G935 S/K/L) will be featuring Exynos 8 Octa 8890.


All of the information given above is not from any official source. So it is very difficult validate the authenticity right now. Although the model numbers generally follow the same pattern, we'll have sit tight and wait some more information to be completely sure about this.

LCD vs. AMOLED

 

Samsung's been advocating the benefits of AMOLED displays for years, but it's doing it more frequently lately because it recently released its Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4, the world's first high-res Super AMOLED tablets.

 

Without going into technical details, Samsung posted an infographic that shows why Super AMOLED screens are better than the LCD ones. Among the listed reasons you'll find a higher contrast ratio, wider viewing angles, and more accurate colors. Check the Infographic below.

@OnLeaks and 91Moiiles have collaborated in bringing this Galaxy Note 8 leak to you, which looks significantly different from what one would expect the Galaxy Note 8 to look like when it's actually launched in August. In fact, these renders are even quite different from what the previous leaks had shown us as well. Whether or not that's good news, it is for you to decide. While there's no confirmation that these leaks are authentic, OnLeaks and 91Mobiles are without a doubt, pretty reliable leaksters.



If you have not yet figured out what I am rambling about, then let me point it out to you; it's the top bezel. The design of the render shows the Galaxy Note 8 to sport a significantly bigger bezel on top than the Galaxy Note 8. It sounds almost unbelievable that Samsung would move away from the S8's bezel-less design which earned them so much praise this year. In fact, it suspiciously resembles the Galaxy Note 7 in many ways. Other design elements are more or less what's to be expected. There's the dual camera, with an awkwardly placed fingerprint scanner right beside the camera module, the 3.5mm headphone jack, the USB Type-C port, the mono speaker outlet, the front camera, the iris scanner, the heart rate sensor and the other usual stuff.

The Galaxy J7 (2016) just started to receive the Android security patch for the month of April in India. The OTA package is quite slim at only 25.78MB and has the build number MMB29K.J710FXXU3AQD4. Along with the 49 CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) fixes included in all Android SMR releases for the month of April, Samsung also includes 16 of its own fixes that are unique to the manufacturer's smartphones only. If you own a J7 (2016) in India, you should be prompted for the update anytime now.



The S7 and the S7 Edge has also started to receive the same Android SMR update but this report is apparently coming in from Europe instead of Asia. The OTA update includes the same fixes from Google and Samsung as the ones mentioned above. It might be a while though before you get to see the update pop up on your phone. How much you will need to wait will depend largely on your location.
