Samsung Mobile Nepal has confirmed that they will launch Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in Nepal on 9th of March. The event is set to take place at Hyatt Regency Ballroom here in Kathmandu, and the invite reads as, ” Experience the unrivalled, top of the world features of a phone, and to rethink what a phone can do”
To recall, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were recently launched at the Mobile World Congress and offers a decent upgrade over its predecessor. Both these phones comes with a metal frame and a gorilla glass 4 front and back, has quad HD 2,560×1,440 Pixel display, and sports 4GB of RAM.
The 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 and 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 edge offers microSD expansion slot and is IP68 water and dust resistant — both these features that were removed on last year’s Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S7 comes with a huge battery of 3000mAh, substantially bigger than 2550mAh of last year’s Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S7 Edge has a 3600mAh battery to power its bigger 5.5-inch display. Both these phones support quick charging as well as wireless charging.
With the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge’s latest slimmer 12-megapixel camera, Samsung claims to have the best camera smartphone in the market. Even though Galaxy S7’s camera has fewer megapixels than its predecessor Galaxy S6, the smartphone possesses one of the fastest autofocus and has better low light photography. It uses larger 1.4um pixels and a lens with an f-stop of 1.7 to let 25% more light into the sensor, as well as a very fast autofocus system, to help prevent grainy or blurred photos.The camera is a Wide angle lens with capabilities of motion panorama and live video streaming on the go. The front camera is a 5-megapixels and the lens is a f/1.7 with a wide angle.
This year’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge ships with 2 variants, one is an in-house Exynos Octacore 8890 SoC and the second a Snapdragon Quadcore 820 SoC. Rumors suggest that we will see the Octacore version here in Nepal. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are up for pre-orders in the US for $670 and $780 respectively, and we expect Samsung mobile Nepal to price it very competitively.
