Apple’s Fiercest Competitor Finally Arrives, Samsung Galaxy S7

It’s the time when Apple received its fiercest rival till date in the form of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, which are also regarded as the ‘STAR’ of Samsung by tech titans.

Alright Samsung, you’ve got us this time. After the badly flop S6 model from the last year, Samsung has unveiled its highly anticipated S7 series, which has proven to be worth all the anticipation.

At Mobile World Congress 2016, the Korean tech mammoth drew the curtains off its #thenextgalaxy series, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge respectively.

The brand new line-up in Samsung flagship smartphone series is almost identical to its predecessors Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, which were unveiled last year and failed to create the magic.

The S7 series, however, is fully packed with the mighty trio features, which were left out in its predecessor models. These features are longer battery life, expandable storage, and water resistance. The latest smartphone line-up, though, does not arrive with a pressure-sensitive display having three-dimensional touch screens, like it was reported previously.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expertly constructed, intelligently designed, and sport all the exemplary features that users have been clamoring for years to find in a single smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Design

At first glance, it will be difficult for you to configure whether you are looking at its predecessor, the S6 series because they share the similar design, but you can spot the difference immediately when you pick up the S7 series. Gone are bulky and awkwardly bulging camera and the uncomfortable back of Samsung Galaxy S6. The new smartphone line-up arrives in metal back with smoother curves and a nearly flushed camera.
