Will Samsung launch Galaxy S7 Edge Plus?

We are always chasing after the next big thing and it is no different when it comes to mobile phones. Samsung released the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at the MWC earlier on in 2016 and people are already wondering whether there will be an S7 Edge plus coming after a few months. The thing is, this is a bit unlikely because there is not much you can do with an S7 Edge Plus that will wow buyers into using more of their hard earned money to get a bit more from a mobile handset. The difference in price between the S7 and the S7 Edge acts as a guideline of what to expect. If that is the trend, then no, thank you on the S7 Edge Plus front.

Reasons why and S7 Edge Plus release is unlikely

The improvements that can be made for the S7 Edge Plus might only have to do with the dimensions, the weight and the battery capacity. Other key features such as the processor and the operating system are unlikely to change. This is a conclusion drawn from the S6 Edge Plus in comparison to the S6 Edge. The battery life on the S7 Edge is already pretty decent and unless Samsung plans on making the battery removable then it is unlikely that anyone will want to spend more just to get some extra juice. That is, unless the battery cell is significantly larger in capacity. So, what does the S7 Edge that will be great for the buyer?

Battery, charging and USB

The S7 Edge has more juice than the S7. While the latter has 3000 mAh battery, the former has 3,600 mAh batteries. This is enough to use through the day without having to recharge. However, if you are one to run a million applications, you have the quick charge feature which allows you to charge the phone faster than usual. You also have access to wireless charging which is pretty cool. This more than makes up for the USB 2.0 port which is a bit slow. Samsung did not upgrade the S7 Edge to Type-C port but at least it has tried to cover up for the shortcomings of the micro USB port.

Display, storage, camera and functioning

The phone curves to provide greater ergonomics and handling. It also has a great 5.5 inch display and 1440 x 2560 pixels which provide for clear gaming and watching of movies. For the storage, the S7 Edge has a 12 MP and 5 MP back and front-facing camera respectively. The new sensor and the dual pixel technology makes for great capturing of images as it increases focus and adaptability to different light conditions. The phone supports two SIM cards. However, when inserting external storage through SD then the phone can only function as a single SIM phone. The expandable memory is capped at 200 GB which provides for massive storage of files. The phone also supports Samsung Pay via Visa and MasterCard.


Instead of waiting for the S7 Edge Plus which is only a speculation for now, why not enjoy the benefits of the S7 Edge?
