The difference between Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge

The good news is they provide a potentially class leading combination of beauty and brains. The bad news is you have to look a little more closely to see it.

So let’s dive in…

The Big Differences

Design & Size – Two Distinct Choices

The arrival of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge see Samsung simplify its smartphone line-up. Whereas Samsung previously offered 5.1-inch S6 and S6 Edge models as well as a third larger 5.7-inch S6 Edge+, now there are just two versions to choose from:

5.1-inch Galaxy S7 – 142.4 x 69.6 x 7.9mm, 152g

Samsung Galaxy S7 video leak shows the handset out in the wild

The latest leak comes in the form of video footage published by Android Authority, showing the flagship handset functioning in the wild.

So many rumors, mostly fan-made, of the alleged device are currently circulating within the Internet. Almost every other week, new speculations regarding the technical specifications of the upcoming device are thrown into the mix that it's quite hard deciding which to believe.

Sometimes, however, a rogue rumor that has so much sense comes along and makes the alternatives feel like lesser options. Such is the case with SABRE 9018 DAC from ESS Technology, an established company that designs and markets analog and Hi-Fi devices for audio systems.

Holograms could be the Samsung Galaxy S7's secret weapon

Uncovered by Patently Mobile, the document describes a handset display that is capable of displaying holographic images in mid-air.

The futuristic technology would theoretically enable a phone to project images above the screen, likely icons that users can interactive with by touch.

Devices equipped with the tech will apparently use their camera to detect interactions and beam images with the help of a special case.
