Here are some of the features for the S7 & S7 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 IP68 Water and Dust Resistant

Exceedingly durable and designed to function even in unfavorable conditions, the Galaxy S7 edge and S7 are cap-less, water and dust resistant with an IP68 certification to boot, ensuring that it could survive getting wet in the rain or being accidentally dropped into the pool, withstanding being submerged in 1.5 meters of water for half an hour. It is also dust-tight, meaning it is safe from the ingress of solid foreign objects like sand, dust, or soil. With this, users can now be worry-free from spills, dust, or accidental drops in water.

DSLR-like Real Pixel camera

Setting new benchmarks for smartphone photography, Samsung outdid itself with the Galaxy S7 edge and S7’s Dual Pixel camera that uses a dual photodiode technology, originally used in professional DSLR cameras and has now been adopted for the very first time in smartphones. This technology enables even faster Auto Focus for crisp, strikingly clear pictures. Just as a person focuses on an object with both eyes, every pixel has two photodiodes to enable super-fast focus, while larger pixels and the brighter F1.7 lens allow bright photos to be taken even in low-light conditions. Added to this is a front camera with brighter F1.7 lens capable of turning the screen as a flash that allows selfies to be taken even in low-light conditions.

Complementing these, Samsung has taken its camera’s fun features up several notches. There is the Motion Panorama feature to capture action-packed and fun moments by bringing panoramic shots to life. Another Galaxy feature, Hyperlapse has been upgraded to make small time-compressed videos easier to create and share. Moreover, the well-loved Beauty Mode has been further enhanced with the Spotlight feature to capture faces with the effect of natural light.

Ultimate Performance

True to the Samsung legacy of superior performance, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and S7 have been designed to give users a worry-free experience, with a base memory of 32GB expandable up to 200GB so that precious memories on videos and photos no longer have to be deleted.

To support this amazing storage capacity, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and S7 come with an even increased battery capacity. The Galaxy S7 sports a 3000mAH battery while the Galaxy S7 edge has a 3600 mAH battery.  Both support Ultra Fast Charging (wired), as well as built-in wireless charging, with even faster charging speed than the previous Galaxy S6 smartphones.

Refined Design with Purpose

Building on Samsung’s re-imagined design philosophy introduced in the Galaxy S6 & S6 edge, the Galaxy S7 edge and S7’s elegant yet functional design features a streamlined body of glass and metal finish, with ergonomic curves to easily fit the user’s grip. The Galaxy S7 features a 5.1” Super AMOLED Quad HD display while the Galaxy S7 edge features a bigger 5.5” dual-edge display both purposefully designed to enhance the user’s viewing experience.


Samsung gives new meaning to functional design. The Galaxy S7 edge comes with various edge panels which can be selected by simply tapping an icon. By simply swiping the edge screen, different panels will appear. The App Edge panel pops out with the user’s favorite apps, the People Edge panel appears with the user’s favorite contacts, while the new Task Edge panel appears with the task apps and features the user usually utilizes. The larger Edge panel also contains more icons and displays more information.

Expanded Galaxy Ecosystem

Taking the smartphone experience to an entirely new dimension, the Galaxy S7 edge and S7 prove to be more than a phone as it allows users to explore more through the Samsung Galaxy Ecosystem by being a gateway to a network of devices & experiences.

We are proud to reinforce our status as the leader and driver of mobile innovation by bringing Samsung’s flagship offering to the Philippine market. With the Galaxy S7 edge and S7, we enjoin more Filipinos to go beyond their limits and see their Samsung Galaxy smartphones as a hub to new and exciting experiences through our wearable devices, the Gear VR and the Gear S2,” said Digs Dimagiba, Business Unit Head of IT and Mobile Division of Samsung Electronics Philippines.
