Galaxy S7 again rumored to come with a larger screen and dual camera setup

Friday, September 11, 2015

It's already Galaxy S7 rumor mill time, indicating that Samsung might have indeed succeeded to shorten the development timeframe for its flagship through a more robust project management techniques, as rumored. In fact, the newest tip from the swaths of Korean media claims that the Galaxy S7 production will start ramping up in January, with the grand unveiling expected at the end of February. That's not out of whack, though, as the Galaxy S6 was announced in the beginning of March, so there will still be about a year between the two, if this pans out.


Moreover, we've already heard that the Galaxy S7 might employ two chipsets - Snapdragon 820, and Samsung's upcoming Exynos M1 project - but today's report claims that the share of Exynos-powered S7 handsets will be much higher than that of the 820-laden units, The source also reiterates that Galaxy S7 may come with a significantly larger display than what we have now - a 5.7" panel - and that seems to be a derivative of the rumor that it might have two versions - one with 5.2" and another with a 5.8" screen. These sound like totally different phones, however, so we'd take the larger screen with a grain of salt.


The most interesting new rumor that the publication speculates on, however, is that amongst the final specs considered for the Galaxy S7, is a dual camera setup, like on the HTC One M8, or the Huawei Honor 6 Plus. We'd have to see that to believe it, but this speculation has been bandied about before. Reportedly, both Apple and Samsung are looking into the advantages of a dual camera tech, and Samsung may have even started testing prototypes to go into devices next year, so who knows what the S7 will bring.
