Mobile World Congress is knocking on the door and the tech world is gathering tools to head to Barcelona.
Tech companies will display their best devices and ground breaking innovations. However, the focus will be on the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy S7 and other gadgets.
Galaxy S7 leaked features
It’s believed the phone will come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Take note, the operating system is the latest in the market and its functionality is dope. Other specs include an IP68 (or IP67) rating, a 12 MP camera, a 2800 mAh battery, and microSD support.
On the flip side, the phone will not have a USB Type-C. Ordinarily, most people are used to the traditional Type-C USB in carrying out most activities like charging or transferring documents from the phone to a computer or the other way round, but this phone will come with something else. Innovation must be unpredictable.
The camera is another feature that Samsung never disappoint; even the low priced Samsung phones like the J family have good cameras. Samsung’s flagship smartphone will have a 12MP camera, well; the number is low when you compare it to other high end phones the company has released. However, like we can bet, the phone will have larger pixels for better image quality.
Currently, Samsung is facing tight competition from Chinese pocket friendly smartphones that crowd the market every year. The company recorded low sales from last year’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge which were received with huge admiration from people who never bought them.
On the other end, Samsung’s budget phones, J5 and J7 recorded relatively good sales from the release date. The J1 also made the company proud.
According to research firm IDC, Samsung is the top vendor worldwide and saw a 14 percent year-over-year gain in units shipped last quarter.
Samsung is expected to host an event at the Mobile World Congress, where it’s expected to unveil the Galaxy S7 and its curved-edge counterpart the Galaxy S7 Edge.
