Samsung today officially announced the newest additions to its Galaxy family of products, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

Created for today's consumer lifestyle, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge lead the industry with a refined design, more advanced camera, streamlined software functionality and unparalleled connectivity to a galaxy of products, services, and experiences.

“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, Samsung Electronics. “We empower consumers with technology to help them get more out of life and will continue to push the frontier of what’s possible.”

Here's a look at their features...

Advanced Camera
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge introduce the first Dual Pixel camera on a smartphone, delivering brighter and sharper images, even in low light. Thanks to the revolutionary Dual Pixel technology, brighter lens with wider aperture, and bigger pixel, the camera has a faster shutter speed and a more accurate autofocus even in low-light conditions. Motion Panorama, a new camera mode, brings movement to traditional panoramic photos, giving the user a completely immersive visual experience.

Refined Design and Function
The 5.1-inch Galaxy S7 and 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 edge are constructed with 3D glass and metal – all in a sleek design with durability and ergonomic curves for a comfortable grip. From work to play, the device’s new Always-On Display, gives users a simplified, zero touch experience where they don’t need to worry about missing a call or important notification.

Without compromising design, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge both have increased utility with IP68 water and dust resistance. Edge UX, the advanced edge experience available on Galaxy S7 edge, provides convenience and increased efficiency by creating easy shortcuts to users’ most loved functions such as email, selfie mode, panorama mode or third party applications.

Enhanced Performance: From Charging to Gaming
Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge deliver fast wired and wireless charging technology. Additionally, the hybrid SIM card tray allows users to insert a microSD card for up to 200GB of additional storage and in some select countries, the tray can be used with a dual SIM card.

Samsung also made significant hardware and software updates to optimize gaming performance on Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The powerful processer and bigger battery capacity ensure longer playing time, and the internal cooling system keeps the device from overheating. Game Launcher, a new add-on for gamers, allows users to manage battery consumption and minimize notifications. Additionally, users can record their gaming experience or share their screen to play with others. Paired with Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, Vulkan API gives users the ability to play high-performance graphic games with lower battery consumption.

The Galaxy Experience
Samsung continues to push the boundaries of hardware, software and services to create devices that are designed to improve how consumers connect, share, organize and get more out of life. The company is redefining what is possible, beyond the limits of today’s technology, by introducing a constellation of seamless mobile experiences.

Whether it’s the seamless connection between Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge and the new Gear S2 Classic to monitor fitness, or connecting with Gear VR to “travel” the world – Samsung redefines what’s possible for the mobile experience and beyond.

Beyond the phone, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge users can also get the best mobile payment service with Samsung Pay; it’s secure, easy-to-use and accepted almost anywhere. Protected by Samsung KNOX, fingerprint scanning and advanced tokenization, Samsung Pay works with NFC (Near Field Communication), MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) and Barcode technology, making mobile payments available to more merchants and consumers than ever before.

All of you Apple fans and Samsung fans are dumb Farks. Most of you have only ever used/owned the one type of phone; holding a phone for a few minutes at your local phone shop or your friends phone doesn't count. When I say "used" or "owned", I mean for a whole year or two. Go and buy that phone you hate so much, own it for a year (and use it like it is your favourite phone) then come back and comment. Yes, you will find faults - but that is human nature because we will fault something before we praise it - but I am sure you will come away from the experience with the thought that you wished you had "this" or "that" implemented on your favourite phone. It's time to start speaking from real experience.

I believe LG G5 is far better than Samsung Galaxy S7 series. Waiting for Sony to reveal new Xperia Z6.
Whysohard - February 22, 2016 at 10:45pm
Buy an iPhone leave the Samsung junk!
droidbotter - February 22, 2016 at 1:54pm
It looks nice but I prefer Sony Xperia than Samsh1t anytime when it comes to Android phones coz Japanese>Korean products.

The phone isn't ugly, it happens to us another OS. What I don't get is there new marketing. Would be nice to actually mention the new features of any that come with this phone.

Who cares, the battery dies so fast because of the quick charging options.. Great for the first few months and then.. the battery can't keep a charge.. 3 new batteries later.. it's not worth the phone it's in. My wife had to try to replace the phone after the battery started to solder itself to the connectors..Great idea but overall it's a gimmick...

You must be the most dumbest person ever, your knowledge of technology is not even worth crap. Shows your no nerd, more of a dummy! I have an iPhone 6 and 6S and I have the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, the iPhone batteries are crap, open your LTE and leave it on with everyday use, and you will see your batter wont even last 2 hours and 3 hours max. The S6, battery last abit longer 1 hour and a half more. All iPhone has crap batteries. My wife had to try to replace the phone after the battery started to solder itself to the connectors..Great idea but overall it's a gimmick... The battery started soldering itself onto its connectors, lol. What a load of crap, the connect is not soldered on to the board you moron, its a snap ribbon cable like the iphone is, what happened the phone started to heat at 120 degrees, and melted all the solder together lol hahahah. You are without a doubt the most stupiest person ever. No wonder apple users are dummys, enjoy your 720P! We are in the 2016, what is apple innovating? 1080p screens! We are entering 4k, not full HD, and please dont give me the excuse of ohhhhh 1080p is all we need or 312ppi is more than enough, if you cannot tell the difference between 577ppi over 312ppi then you have a big problem my friend, I can spot it from a mile away the difference. Force Touch? whats that, that works on certain apps, everything else useless. Samsung is always ahead of innovation. Innovation is bending the glass to make a nice curve that meets the metal. Also just so you know, Apple cost most cheaper to make the most expensive iphone, at around 270, where as the S7 and all costs about 400 to make, that shows, which company puts quality in their products, apple is nothing more than a tin metal with bendgate written all over it, its so crap that even the Note 3 didnt have bendgate and that was plastic!! Go check the video. Before commenting, use your head your moron.

"All iPhone batteries are crap!" Complete bullshit! I have an iPhone 5s and I leave only wifi on and low brightness and it lasts 3 days. What difference does galaxy make by a long shot with an extra hour? "Samsung us ahead of innovation" then explain the blast ripoff of Apple Pay and force touch that may be used in this? Speaking of that, it's something a blind rotten soul sourpuss like you can't see. Explain why the fck in hell we need a tad bit of the display to the edge? Good luck dealing with a broken screen like your brain! Why need higher quality when it nearly looks exactly the same. It's buying a TV that looks as good from the distance for example! The 1080p is growing because it works with sensors and lens that clearly means all cameras on iPhones are quality compact cameras. Shit my ass! You haven't used every iPhone to its full potential or hide the fact. All of them prove what smartphone cameras are. They have clear panels. Step up in ppi which has drastically improved after s models of iPhones. You're nothing more but a but hurt soul that doesn't know what it takes to use any part of technology even if it works with something new that you can't accept no matter how much you're desperate to hide! iOS is more used than android for a reason, and don't take my word for it. I can jailbreak it to use it to the full potential cydia has done compared to android which has helped get the latest users compared to it, iOS organizes icons to, it can allow effects, dimensions, and gestures, iOS itself keeps the battery in so no one can keep the battery out in case I need to track my phone down in which with android you're fcked, iCloud automatically backs up my data as if it takes care of memory for me (so screw memory cards they are too easy to lose and it time consuming for so much to remove and attach back just to remove or insert them, shoot 1080p that apple's camera makes it look like 4k. If you want to waste that much money and get the same quality for iPhone, be a hog at it. The panel is as good as a 4k camera just by comparison of a 4k cam to the 6 (plus) s6 is barely a step up compared to iPhone and the display on iPhone make things look like it sits right on top of it compared to the s6. Who needs so much pixels for a screen anyway. What advantage is it with best display. Even by putting my face on he screen, both iPhone and s6 looks clear, but why would you need that many? iPhone 6 believe it or not works just as good as any display, not to mention s6 tried to laminate it like them but still looks blurry from viewing angles. That's what not coming close looks like. You still see pixels because you're blinded by but hurt. Literally blinded. iPhone and s6 are both perfect either way. No shit about what pixels even do. Stops crying like spoiled shit. This guy tried to make iPhone and we all have our opinions and by that, you're not right like I am so stop trying to claim yourself the new Einstein wannabe. This guy didn't try as if he didn't look at iPhones for the first time! Enough soulless shit spew of you. If you feel so overconfident, why don't you try to estimate what you wish iPhone was like, oh wait you can't because you're too busy trying to show off your hate and trying to excuse s6 as if you're such a brainwashed belated bowel blowing bull shit. It takes stupid kids to know one. You think you're too smart about what you think just because one person said iPhone is good the way it is! Here another tip, don't be such a deluded dumbass over what people thinks like you were insulted about being right next time! You're not right here one slight bit! FOYMFAW!!!!!
TechnoGeek - February 22, 2016 at 8:38am
If I could understand your grammar and spelling I would comprehend the bullsh&% you're trying to spew. You ever had a battery start to overheat and the connectors are becoming calcified to the prongs? Well, that's what is happening here. You don't believe me, look it up and it's a common issue? You have an IPhone 6, 6Plus, S6 and S6 Edge... LOL!! Now that is some bs. Nerd? I don't claim to be a nerd, I'm simply educated versus some wannabe know it all. Fuk if I care, if I represent some nerd nation. It's the fact jack!! Now stop opening multiple web page to try to impress anybody with your delusional information... here's a news for you, Nobody gives a fk about what you say!! You ain't no Nerd nor anything impressive, jus a wannabe trying to argue about a phone...It's a PHONE dude!!! GET A LIFE!!
@&/:*%#! - February 22, 2016 at 8:56am
Stop blabbering Samsung fanboy! All your phone features are all shit! All gimik! The most important feature why a phone sell is the content not those hardware shit your blabbering! Security? Its still android you moron! It is still vulnerable to viruses and malwares! Wireless charging?! When you lift it away from the base it will no longer charge! Gimiiiik! Curve display you say? Whats the use of the curve display? View it on the side?! Giiiimiiiik!!! They boost up the hardware specks to catch up with the weight of the custom Android OS and its bloat apps! Giiimmmiiik!!! If your phone's camera is that superior, how come they don't have prestigious competitions such as IPPA (iPhone Photography Awards)? Samsung is lame to showcase your phone's shots because they only care about your money and not what you can do with it! Search in youtube professional commercials created in iPhones. Lots of them. I never saw a Bentley commercial created in a Samsung phone? It was created in iPhone 5s. Expensive iPhones? Why would I buy a Samshit S7 which is also now the same price as the iPhone. My phone can last years longer than your Samshit because mine still has updates upto 5 years. Your phone is obsolete in the next Android update or if the update arrives there is a new Samshit phone which you want to buy! Who's expensive now?! 4K screen? In a normal eye 1080p and 4k is the same unless you view a 5.5" screen close to your face when viewing it to appreciate the 4k clarity! Stupid moron! You're such a dumb fan boy who believes in gimiks!
Whysohard - February 22, 2016 at 10:41pm
You are clearly an imbecile of the highest rank. What makes a good phone? It's not just about pixels. Samsung have strengths but most people know that have an overload of pixels doesn't improve experience. Services and content and apps make for a better experience. Apple is by far the more innovative little prick! Force touch gives you less 2 or three touches. Bending a screen may be cool , but it's pure COSMETIC! Use your one brain cell to think. They copiers and want to appear as an innovator but just keep standing on apples shoulders. With Apple Samsung will fall into oblivion. Now go buy some infant formula find a corner, hold onto your gearbox and stop speaking rubbish! ...I said shut up!

Dude I'm not trynna start anything here but I think ur the only moron here. Go even search NOONE CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1080p (full hd) & 4k (uhd) on a small phone screen. In order for the naked eye to tell the difference and see the drastic results the screen must be at LEAST 60". I'm not a fanboy for any product just a consumer, but apple is what I prefer simply for the fact it's a no brained, if everyone is copying Apple why not just go to the real thing? That's my logic
JuergenWest - February 21, 2016 at 10:05pm
Samsung sheeples will buy this, and then curse the broken screen.

They'll think they have such game changing features only to target apple even after iPhone 7's release. Not buying it! Start to think how long that can possibly last!
