Samsung generated the kind of knee-trembling media buzz for Sunday's Galaxy S7 event that all gadget makers crave - even Apple. Though seemingly counterintuitive, Samsung actually dropped the megapixel count to 12MP in the Galaxy S7 from 16MP in the S6.
The additional features are the new gaming tech and a rear camera that should cope better in low-light conditions.
Samsung brought back the MicroSD card slot in the Galaxy S7, allowing owners to expand the memory to 200GB.
Samsung said Galaxy S7 is the first smartphone in the world to use the dual pixel image sensor technology.
The Galaxy S7 sports a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a display resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. Furthermore, you're safe if your phone sits in water 1,5km deep for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the Gear 360 is compatible with other Samsung smart devices, including the newly unveiled Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6.
Both phones will ship in the middle of March with the price to be advised. Another concern from last year's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is battery life. There is no doubt that the Galaxy A9 will be able to support the new operating system given its powerful combination of a snapdragon 652 processor along with 3 GB of RAM.
The phone runs Android 6.0.1 at launch with a recolored version of TouchWiz on top.
Unfortunately, this also means that storage options will be taken away for many markets, including the US.
The maker of the world's best-selling smartphones has a couple new devices for your consideration. Samsung seems to have taken feedback from its fans as not only the phones are now waterproof, the MicroSD card expansion slot also makes a comeback.
"We tried to add as many features as possible (to the Galaxy S7) that were discontinued in the previous models", Koh added. However, the Galaxy S7 packs in a few other additional features and functionalities that the Galaxy S6 missed, making them similar only in terms of physical aspects.
