Last year's Galaxy S6 featured a 16 megapixel camera sensor, so when the supposedly leaked image showed us that the Galaxy S7 has a 12.2 megapixel sensor, we became skeptical. Although some manufacturers like HTC have been using larger pixel size or "ultrapixels" to justify a lower megapixel count, it is unlikely that Samsung would follow the same path since the recently announced Samsung Britcell sensor actually has smaller pixels. The image also shows us that the front camera has a 5 megapixel sensor and that too, does not seem to us as something that the Korean electronics giant will put in the final version of their upcoming flagship device.
The leaked snap apparently reveals to us other specifications like a QHD 5.7 inch display, 4GB of RAM, a fingerprint sensor and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with an Adreno 530 GPU instead of the Exynos 8890 SoC. We believe the Quad High Definition 5.7 inch display is something that we can definitely see in the Galaxy S7. Even if there is just a 5.1 inch version at launch, we are pretty sure that Samsung will launch 5.7 inch editions eventually. The 4GB RAM is almost a certainty and so is the fingerprint scanner. In order to confirm our suspicions, we will have to wait till "Samsung Unpacked 2016," which will probably be held on 20th Feb, 2016 in Barcelona.
