La nuova famiglia Galaxy è qui.
Durante l’evento MWC 2016 di Barcellona, Samsung ha presentato al mondo i suoi nuovi smartphone top di gamma, Galaxy S7 e Galaxy S7 Edge. I nuovi terminali del colosso coreano saranno anche i primi ad essere equipaggiati con la nuova tecnologia Dual Pixel camera, in grado di scattare foto più luminose e brillanti anche in condizioni di scarsa luminosità. La nuova fotocamera inoltre sarà dotata di lenti più luminose con fuoco 1/7, più pixel, un nuovo autofocus molto più preciso e una velocità dell’otturatore ancora maggiore rispetto alla precedente generazione di Galaxy. Il Galaxy S7 e la sua versione con schermo curvo S7 Edge saranno inoltre resistenti alla polvere e all’acqua e il display da 5.1″ e 5.7″ offrirà una risoluzione QuadHD da 2560 X 1440 (577ppi). Il tutto sarà infine mosso da un processore Octacore (2.3GHz Quad/2.15ghz inalcuni mercati, + 1.6GHz Quad), a 64 bit, e processo produttivo a 14 nm. Torna anche il supporto alle microSD di espansione fino a 200gb, la cui esclusione era stata nel precedente modello molto criticata

Advanced Camera: High Quality Images No Matter the Time of Day or Location
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge introduce the first Dual Pixel camera on a smartphone, delivering brighter and sharper images, even in low light. Thanks to the revolutionary Dual Pixel technology, brighter lens with wider aperture, and bigger pixel, the camera has a faster shutter speed and a more accurate autofocus even in low-light conditions. Motion Panorama, a new camera mode, brings movement to traditional panoramic photos, giving the user a completely immersive visual experience.
Refined Design and Function
The 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 and 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 edge are constructed with 3D glass and metal – all in a sleek design with durability and ergonomic curves for a comfortable grip. From work to play, the device’s new Always-On Display, gives users a simplified, zero touch experience where they don’t need to worry about missing a call or important notification.
Without compromising design, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge both have increased utility with IP68 water and dust resistance. Edge UX, the advanced edge experience available on Galaxy S7 edge, provides convenience and increased efficiency by creating easy shortcuts to users’ most loved functions such as email, selfie mode, panorama mode or third party applications.
Enhanced Performance: From Charging to Gaming
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge deliver fast wired and wireless charging technology. Additionally, the hybrid SIM card tray allows users to insert a microSD card for up to 200GB of additional storage and in some select countries, the tray can be used with a dual SIM card.
Samsung also made significant hardware and software updates to optimize gaming performance on Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The powerful processer and bigger battery capacity ensure longer playing time, and the internal cooling system keeps the device from overheating. Game Launcher, a new add-on for gamers, allows users to manage battery consumption and minimize notifications. Additionally, users can record their gaming experience or share their screen to play with others. Paired with Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, Vulkan API gives users the ability to play high-performance graphic games with lower battery consumption.
The Galaxy Experience
Samsung continues to push the boundaries of hardware, software and services to create devices that are designed to improve how consumers connect, share, organize and get more out of life. The company is redefining what is possible, beyond the limits of today’s technology, by introducing a constellation of seamless mobile experiences.
Whether it’s the seamless connection between Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge and the new Gear S2 Classic to monitor fitness, or connecting with Gear VR to “travel” the world – Samsung redefines what’s possible for the mobile experience and beyond.
Beyond the phone, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge users can also get the best mobile payment service with Samsung Pay; it’s secure, easy-to-use and accepted almost anywhere. Protected by Samsung KNOX, fingerprint scanning and advanced tokenization, Samsung Pay works with NFC (Near Field Communication), MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) and Barcode technology, making mobile payments available to more merchants and consumers than ever before.
