Samsung Galaxy S7 Rumors thread

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard the rumor of Samsung using liquid cooling in the phone? That could be a game changer if it works efficiently and allow higher specs while keeping things cool.

3600 mah battery for the S7E sounds very, very good.

Unlike an LCD panel which has a full screen backlight behind the pixels (even the black ones) drawing heavily on the battery, an AMOLED screen can illuminate individual pixels. If you have a black screen, there’s no actual power being drawn. Trigger a few pixels to put information on the screen and while it still draws power, it draws significantly less power than an LCD screen showing the same information.

 

This could be real useful on both models but I could see it being a main feature for the edge.

So, it looks pretty but it is the same design as the S6/Note 5.  Actually, it is the Note 5, just smaller.  I'm going to hold out and see what HTC has in store for its M10.  Although I've seen the leaks it may not be what it actually looks like and I'm open to any device that has the Snapdragon 820.

Qualify that. Same general external design. If you're hung up on that and looking no further, you get what you deserve.

 

The guts are very different. Just the external format is similar. That format wasn't broke so there was nothing to fix there. Electrically, HUGE difference, so your statement as written is entirely incorrect.

 

New radios, weather resistant, sd card, new computing architecture, talk of a new display technology, newest OS compatibility, newest gorilla glass, about the only thing likely missing is USB-c.

 

The lack of a user replaceable battery may not be a big deal if they have the latest battery and charging tech incorporated for durability.

 

What else did I forget?

All I have to go on is looks for now. Until the specs are announced, I don't believe we can base assumptions off the rumors.

By that rule, then there is no guarantee the images are accurate either.

The only rumor left is when will Sprint let us place orders and are they part of the Gear VR promo?

    • The 123 subway station at Penn Station finally has B41. Its from the Transit wireless DAS but in the past it only had B25 LTE. Nice to see more B41 lighting up underground. I'm going to check the ACE side sometime this week as well. 
    • I'd just wonder how long it would take to get the networks to mesh.  How integrated would they need to be to have seemless handoffs, especially with voice.  Then how long will this integration take to get to that point. That's if they even integrate networks. Maybe they could say just point Sprint's equipment to TMobile's servers, push some updates and be integrated.  Not knowing a thing about how their networks work, this is the grey area and the area I'd be concerned with.  For data, I can see just open up bands to each others customers, retransmit requests/packets if hopping networks.  But not sure that will go well for VoLTE.  Plus there could be a lot of lost packets which wouldn't be good for a lot of services.  I'd imagine at first say as a Sprint customer I would be able to use the TMobile network, but when the phone scans it would scan for Sprint channels first then scan for TMobile if it can't find Sprint.  
    • Apparently the MiniMacros was an actual order placement.  But I don't know how long of a period a time this order is for.
    • Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.
