It is safe to say that by now, all the hardware specs of the upcoming Galaxy S7 have been revealed, meaning that this coming Sunday, we doubt that there will be anything Samsung announces that won’t surprise us. Now previously one of the rumors suggested that the phone might pack a 12MP camera, lower than its predecessor in the megapixel count.
Turns out that the rumors could be true, because newly leaked information has corroborated the earlier claims. However if you think that Samsung is “downgrading” its camera, they’re not. Instead according to the leaked information, the 12MP camera uses a slightly larger sensor at 1/2.5-inches, with individual pixel sizes of at least 1.4 microns, making this bigger than most phones.
In addition to the camera, the new leak also suggests that Samsung could be improving on the sound of the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. The earpiece’s speaker is said to be able to to output 1.2W while the phone’s loudspeakers are said to be capable of 1.5W. These claims seem to be in line with a report from last year that suggested that audio quality could be one of Samsung’s focuses for the Galaxy S7.
In any case it’s best taken with a grain of salt for now, but do check back with us this coming Sunday where all will be officially revealed!
