Samsung has been one of the hottest names in the world of technology and has been one of the first few names to capitalize on the Android revolution.
The company has since been coming out with update after update and has changed the way the markets of technology function. Samsung is now busy working on their latest releases, primarily the Samsung Galaxy S7, which will be releasing on the 21st of February, at the Galaxy Unpacked event.
The first time we heard of the 2016’s Galaxy Unpacked event was in a Tweet from Evan Blass (@EVLeaks) who has been one of the most trusted tipsters of the recent times.
He had accurately predicted the date of the event, and the company later released teasers confirming the rumors.
The company is highly anticipated to release the S7. Recent reports have also indicated a VR camera is coming out at the same event. Here’s a look at both the devices:
- Samsung Galaxy S7
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to come out in three variants – one base variant featuring a 5.1 inched screen, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
The phone is expected to feature a 3000mAh battery, and various new features such as a ‘pressure sensitive’ screen and vivid images which capture motion in a picture. Two other variants too are expected to release – the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, featuring an edged display, and the Edge+ featuring a dual edged display. Both these devices will be larger than the base model.
Additionally, all three devices will come with two variants each, with the processor varying. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to release with the Snapdragon 820 processor in some regions, and with the Exynos 8890 in the other regions.
- Samsung’s VR Camera
Rumors have indicated that Samsung also intends to announce a VR camera at the Galaxy Unpacked event.
As per IT Pro UK, this Virtual Reality camera by Samsung is expected to help the users capture images in 360 degree with the help of 180 degree fish eye lenses. This is expected to pair with compatible smartphones via bluetooth.
The Gear 360 device will come along with bundled Software which will feature a gallery and remote viewfinder applications, along with VR view, dual view, panoramic view, time-lapse and looping video options, as per the same reports.
More details are expected to be out as we inch closer to the big day of the release.
