Pressure Sensing Screen on Galaxy S7
Much talked about Samsung Galaxy S7 is all set to be released in March. The new handset will feature a pressure-sensitive screen, akin to the 3D touch technology introduced by Apple's iPhone 6s, The Wall Street Journal reports. The latest S7 will reportedly have an "Edge" variant and a curved screen like their Galaxy S6. According to an inside source, the non-edge version will have an expandable memory storage, unlike S6 both the models. WSJ said that even though the looks of S7 are somewhat similar to S6, the camera quality is enhanced without any bump on the back panel for improved optics. Samsung was reportedly rumored to experiment with an iris scanner in its S5 model in 2014 that they never really brought to the market.
The new devices will be made available for purchase in the U.S in mid-march, said the insider source aware on the matters of Samsung S7 launch. The announcement for the same is expected to be made sometime in the Mobile World Congress Trade Show that is scheduled to happen in February in Barcelona. S6, however, was launched in the stores sooner than its successor S7, following the official announcement made earlier this year. The reason for quicker launch is to capitalize on the buzz that ahs been created around the flagship device, reported WSJ
Samsung will also, probably, add Type-C USB with their new Galaxy S7. The Type-C devices have already been shipped in the last few months so the transition will happen seamlessly. There are talks of a retina scanner in the latest models but it is only a rumor with no conclusive proof of it being added to the design. The consumers can expect not to see it in the Galaxy S7 handsets, as reported by the Android Police.
