Samsung Galaxy S7 Rumored to Sport 3D Touch and USB Type-C port



Samsung Galaxy Note 5 - Camera Review

Earlier: Oct 19, 2015 – The 3D Touch is the latest technology that gave the touchscreen on latest iPhones a lot more functions. The 12-inch Macbook is the first electronic gadget to use this technology while ZTE announced the first smartphone, Axon Mini with the same Force Touch technology. Huawei, third largest smartphone manufacturer had launched the Mate S with Force Touch display.

Samsung 3D TouchThe iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus came with almost same technology and called it as 3D Touch. The 3D Touch adds few more features to the Force Touch displays. Unlike iOS, there aren’t many apps that support this technology on Android but we can expect that in the coming days. The Galaxy S7 that is expected to launch in early 2016 is now rumored to sport the 3D Touch (or Force Touch) display.

A new patent from Samsung called as ‘Touch Input Apparatus and Electronic Device Having Thereof ‘ suggests the upcoming Galaxy S7 to feature this new technology. With the patented technology, the displays on Samsung devices can use one touch for different functions.

The device is also rumored to come with USB Type-C port that was recently seen on Lumia 950 and Lumia 950XL along with Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P smartphones.

Earlier: Sep 10, 2015 – We have heard about a smartphone called ‘Lucky-LTE’ from Samsung that has been listed on the GeekBench listing. The device comes with an Exynos 8890 SoC with a clock speed of 1.38GHz. According to the listing, this new chipset comes with octa-core ARMv8 processors. The listing also shows the device with 4GB of RAM and running on latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

Now, it is confirmed that upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 is internally codenamed as ‘Project Lucky’ and the details of GeekBench listing also implies to the same device. The company has recently unveiled their latest flagship devices Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 powered by Exynos 7420 chipset. This is the same chipset that was used in the devices Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

The Exynos 8890 SoC listed on the benchmarking site is expected to be the M1 Mongoose SoC. The benchmarks score that are leaked last month also suggests this chipset to pack a lot of power. According to the GeekBench listing for the Exynos M1 Mongoose, the scores for the single-core and multi-core are whooping 2136 and 7497, when compared with the Exynos 7420 scores of 1486 and 4970 for Single-core and Multi-core.

If the rumors are to believed, Samsung will also come up with a 20MP ISOCELL rear camera sensor along with new ‘all lens covers.’ Though apart from the name, there is no much information about the ‘all lens cover’ project. Since these rumors are so early, we can expect some changes in the final product. There are few leaks that Samsung will also launch a bigger screen variant named Galaxy S7+. As these are wholly based on the rumors and leaks, take them with a pinch of salt.
