Samsung Galaxy S7 said to feature LTE Cat. 12 connectivity


Last updated: November 5th, 2015 at 14:03 UTC+02:00

It was reported that Samsung has sped up the development of its upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7, and the company is expected to unveil the device sometime in February 2016. Now, it is being reported that the Galaxy S7 will feature faster cellular connectivity.

According to a new report from Samsung’s homeland, both variants of the device will feature LTE Cat. 12 connectivity. Theoretically, LTE Cat. 12 download speeds max out at 600Mbps, while the upload speeds can reach upto 100Mbps. In comparison, the Galaxy S6 features LTE Cat. 6 with maximum download speeds of upto 300Mbps. Obviously, real-life speeds would be slower and it is necessary for your carrier to support these faster standards to achieve mentioned speeds.

In other sea of rumors and reports, the devices are expected to come in three processor variants – Exynos 8890, Exynos 7422, and Snapdragon 820 – that will be released in different markets along with 4GB RAM. The Exynos 8890 features Samsung’s first ever custom CPU cores, the M1 (a.k.a Mongoose), which will compete with Qualcomm’s Kyro and Apple’s Twister cores.

Samsung is also said to be testing multiple camera sensors for the Galaxy S7 including a 1/2-inch BRITECELL sensor with dual-photodiode technology and Sony’s IMX300 sensor that is used in the Xperia Z5 trio. It might also feature a magnesium alloy body, improved sound quality, and a USB Type-C port. Are you guys excited after realising that we might be just 3-4 months away from Samsung’s most feature-packed smartphone ever?
