Samsung aimed to gather the best features of Galaxies past for their S7 line. That included features missing from the S6 like water resistance and a microSD slot, but the company also took the improved design from the S6 line and made it even better. Check out the photos above to see every angle of the sleek new hardware and look here for a run-down of everything that’s new.
You’ll be sure to notice the improved design of the larger S7 edge as soon as you pick one up. The sharp, flat back of the S6 edge has lost its unpleasantness and has been replaced with lightly curved edges that feels exceptionally more comfortable in your hand.
Other than the new dual-SIM microSD slot (which sits in the same positioning) the ports remain unchanged, a major feat given the top-of-the-line IP68 water resistance. On that note, Samsung confirmed to me that the phone should be able to withstand a half hour of submersion at about five feet of depth. This means it’ll be no problem to take an S7 into the shower or pool without worrying for your device’s life.
The devices will be available March 11, with pre-orders beginning tomorrow at 8:00AM EST.
