On Sunday, ahead of MWC 2016, Samsung announced the newest additions to the Galaxy family: the S7 and S7 Edge.
"We believe in a world that is brighter, sharper, more convenient, and more fun. We strive to deliver on that vision with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge by marrying elegant design with functionality and providing a seamless mobile experience," said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics in a statement on the new devices. "We empower consumers with technology to help them get more out of life and will continue to push the frontier of what's possible." The new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge feature improved cameras, refined design, advanced security, enhanced performance, and the return of expandable storage. Both devices run Android Marshmallow and pack 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 200 GB, Dual Pixel 12 megapixel and 5 megapixel cameras, and IP68 certification.
In addition to unveiling the new smartphones, Samsung announced that users who pre-order the device before March 18 will get a free virtual reality headset. "Consumers who buy a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge between February 23 and March 18 can dive right in to the exciting world of virtual reality with a free Gear VR powered by Oculus, plus a 6-game bundle," said Samsung. This limited time offer is an estimated $150 value and will only be available while supplies last. Samsung also unveiled the new Gear 360 camera for filming VR stills and videos.
