T-Mobile subscribers who had pre-ordered Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have begun getting notifications from the carrier that their handsets have already been shipped.
This move, therefore, means that T-Mobile subscribers will start experiencing the latest unveiled Samsung flagships earlier than the expected official release date – March 11. Having your pre-ordered Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge registered on T-Mobile’s system and having the handset shipped relay two different feelings. The latter feeling comes with a lot of excitement and enthusiasm to the customers as they will be among the first to rock with the much-awaited device from Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge
During the debut of the two handsets at the 2016 MWC in Barcelona, Samsung revealed that the smartphones would officially be released to the market on March 11. The South Korean manufacturer started receiving pre-orders as from 23rd February. Apparently, it appears that T-Mobile was among the first to place their pre-orders making it certain for their respective subscribers to be among the first users of the new Samsung flagship handsets.
From the look of things, it appears that Samsung responded positively to the purported feedback from their customers. Expandable memory storage (microSD slot) that lacked in last year’s flagship – Galaxy S6 – is back and features in both new handsets. Further, the world’s leading phone manufacturer has also enhanced the latest handsets with dust and waterproof feature with an IP68 certification. This feature was initially in Galaxy S5 but lacked in Galaxy S6 and now it returns to the 2016 flagships.
Same model, different CPU’s for different markets
The Samsung Galaxy S7 features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels and a 72.1% screen to body ratio whereas the S7 Edge has a 5.5-inch similar specs-screen. The screen is Corning Gorilla Glass-protected as well as the back panel of the device. Running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Galaxy S7 comes in variants of Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 chipsets. As such, the Snapdragon 820-powered model will be for the Chinese, Japanese and United States’ markets whereas other markets will have the Exynos-packed model.
As aforementioned, the devices have expandable memory storage slots and will be available in 32GB and 64GB ROM variants which will also be market-dependent. Each of the two new flagships packs 12MP main camera systems that have been enhanced with BRITECELL and Dual Pixel technologies. The phones each have 5MP front cameras. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have support for the Vulkan API for enhanced mobile gaming experience with 3000mAh and 3600mAh battery capacities respectively.
