Smartphone geeks can not be stopped from thinking about what 2016's top line models will look like, and a credible report has provided answer to some of the questions, we now know a quite a few things about Samsung's soon to be launched Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets.
The Wall Street Journal is giving reference of people familiar with this and reporting that next year's Galaxy S7 smartphone will feature some major upgrades compared to the currently available model. As per this report, the upcoming Samsung smartphone will come with a pressure-sensitive screen, like the one that Apple launched with its iPhones. It will enable the phone to react differently depending on whether the user is simply touching or pressing the screen.
Also Samsung Galaxy S7 will include a retina scanner, although this feature is currently available in some of the selected models, and might not actually be available in the market. The Galaxy S6 models already sport a fingerprint scanner, and along with a retina scanner, possibly with similar functionality to the iris scanner found on the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, Samsung is planning to compete in the biometric sensor arena.
The Galaxy S7 is supposed to support Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will be powered by an Exynos 8890 processor (or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC in some devices), backed by 4GB RAM along with fast wireless charging, LTE Cat. 12 and USB Type-C connectivity.
