The network continues to rumble around the Galaxy S7, which is slated to be Samsung's new flagship smartphone that will be launched in January or February, and it's not hard to see why - now we already know with almost absolute certainty that it will arrive (at least in some versions) With Exynos 8890 chip, Which appears to be a real performance monster that can even make Exynos 7420 look like chip Intermediate.
In addition to all reports on the intended launch date or material from which the mantle of the device (the currently leading candidate is a magnesium alloy, which is supposedly milder and tougher than aluminum, incidentally), stands out Very intriguing reporting About the Premium version of theGalaxy S7 - which will be more expensive naturally, will offer a screen resolution 4k And a chip with no less than 14 processing clusters, compared to 12 "only" clusters inExynos 8890 displayed last week.
It's a bit hard for us to believe this rumor, because this means that the Galaxy S7 Premium will actually come with a chip that is not Exynos 8890 - The addition of any machining clusters (in the same manufacturing process) means physical enlargement of the chip, and we do not remember too many situations where chips of different physical sizes and with different capabilities stood under the same model name, perhaps except-Apple A9 where the minor difference is the result of collaboration with two different chip manufacturers with different production technologies.
However, we believe that the general idea of the report, according to which we will see more automakers in the near future Sony And present more luxurious than usual versions of their flagship products - it actually makes a lot of sense. Many manufacturers are desperately looking for a way to increase their profitability in such a competitive smartphone world, and it seems that apart from recruiting all the innovative technology and all possible branding to create a new super-category where the profit margins can be slightly wider, there are not many other possible directions. Because China manages to surprise us time and time again with its attractive prices.
It's not surprising to see Samsung take up the gauntlet in the field of premium devices, as it has in fact been doing for two years with its Edge models, which offer a unique gimmick at a small (but significant, in the end) cost. There is no doubt that the Galaxy S7 will also come in the Edge version - and we do not object to the idea of also seeing a third version of the device that will offer unique features. Maybe one that will also come with water and dust immunity and an extra large battery, similar For the great Galaxy S6 Active But exclusive to AT&T in the current generation.
