The leaks are coming thick and fast. Just days before Samsung unveils the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge at the Mobile World Congress, the company's Indonesia branch has accidentally revealed the promo material for phones. The material includes a promo video and a few teaser shots that that do not give us a look at the exact hardware of the phone but hint at some of its cool features.
The video and teaser reveals that the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge will be water-resistant and support wireless charging. The promo material also reveals that the leaks so farabout the phones are correct and the phone are going to almost exactly the same design that the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge have.
The promo material also hints that Samsung's new Galaxy phones will have a focus on the user privacy and will have a camera with improved low-light performance.
In terms of hardware, we still don't the confirmed specifications. But it is safe to assume that the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge will have top of the line hardware. It has been rumoured that the phones would be powered by Samsung Exynos 8990 processor, which has 8-cores, or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, depending on the region. It is also likely to have 4GB RAM, at least 32GB internal storage and support for microSD card. The screen size is likely to remain same - 5.1 Inches - with the same -- 1440 x 2560 pixels - resolution. It is also safe to assume that both phones will use SuperAMOLED panels.
On the camera hardware, Samsung seems to be focussing more on improving the low light performance in the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge, instead of joining the mega-pixel race. Unlike the S6, which came with a 16-megapixel camera, the S7 is likely to come with a 12-megapixel shooter. It is also likely to feature a very wide aperture of F1.7 that will help the phone capture more light and will enable it to click clearer photos in low light. Nowadays, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X use a 12-megapixel image sensor with big pixels and both of them offer one of the best low-light camera performances ever seen from smartphones. It is possible that with its 12-megapixel sensor, the Galaxy S7 could be equally good.
Samsung teased another video showing a child unboxing a Galaxy S7 phone. The video's title, Seven Days of Unboxing, suggests the company will be posting a different unboxing video everyday before the final launch.
