The pressure-sensitive display, for instance, will be similar to that offered by rival Apple Inc. on the iPhone 6s earlier this year. The responsive display allows the phone to interpret different taps and touches depending on how the user presses on the touch screen. The Galaxy S7 will likely also feature a next-generation charging and connection port called a USB Type-C port, the people said, which will allow for a full day’s charge in under 30 minutes and in some cases significantly faster than that.
The smartphone is also said to feature an improved camera that is optimized for lowlight and will sit flush with the back of the phone. The non-curved version of the Galaxy S7 will reportedly have an external memory card slot.
Samsung is expected to unveil the new devices alongside Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. They will likely ship in March.
