It’s a long way off though
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge released at the start of 2015 proved to be two of the most exciting handsets on the market right now and we gave them both near on perfect reviews with only a few little problems on each letting them down.
Those problems need to be ironed out by the next time around and it’s exciting to think what Samsung will be able to pull off with its new found lease of design changes and true innovation.
So what will the Galaxy S7 bring to the table? The rumours are already coming in, so here’s everything in one easy place for you to see.
News and rumors
So what exactly do we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy S7? The real answer is not all that much, it’s only a few months since the Galaxy S6 hit the market so real, worthwhile details are a little hard to come by.
One rumour does seem to have a little weight thrown behind it though as sources believe the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 5 may be coming with curved screens.
According to supply chain sources both phones will be launching with flexible displays after Samsung put in some big orders with Taiwanese manufacturers. It may end up being a separate version of the Galaxy S7 much like with the Galaxy S6 Edge but it’s interesting all the same.
What we want to see
1. Better battery life
Our biggest gripe with the Galaxy S6 was the battery – we found with moderate usage you could get between 17 and 18 hours. That is the average day if you’re on a normal sleep pattern but do you really want to be walking that tight rope thinking if I watch a film my phone it’s not going to last the whole day?
Samsung need to do better than this with the Galaxy S7; even sacrificing a little of its new found design credentials to thicken up the handset and stick in a bigger cell would have been worth the extra life. Next time let’s hope it understands functionality takes precedence over design.
2. Bring us to the Edge
We loved the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – in fact we think everyone did – it just did something entirely different to the rest of the competition.
We want the same again, but maybe something completely off the bat. If the rumours of the flexible display handset turn out to be true we could end seeing something similar to the S6 Edge come Q1 2016.
