Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge Pack a Moisture Sensor in USB Port

Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge premium smartphones also feature a moisture sensor in the USB port that alerts the user when they are plugging in their charger.

The company clearly points that users need to dry the USB port before plugging the charger in the user manual of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Phone Arena first reported the feature and cites the manual which notes, “If you charge the device while the multipurpose jack is wet, the device may be damaged. Thoroughly dry the multipurpose jack before charging the device.”

A Reddit user shared experience under the thread “moisture detected” and added, “I took an underwater photo this morning and put the phone away (Galaxy S7 Edge). 4 hours later I plugged it into the wall (fast charger) for a top-up and the phone popped up error message “moisture detected in charging port,” and the phone won’t charge.”(Also see: Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge First Look)

To recall, the new Samsung Galaxy smartphones are certified with IP68 rating, which allows the handset to withstand dust and water. The company had confirmed that both models can be immersed in 1.5 metres of water for up to 30 minutes.

The South Korean company has been promoting the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones aggressively and recently ahead of the March 11 availability in 60 countries announced a Samsung Upgrade Programme in the UK which provided consumers the option to exchange their existing handset and upgrade to the latest Samsung Galaxy handset for a limited period before and after the release of that handset.

For those unaware, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge differ mainly in their screen sizes and battery capacities. The curved edges on the S7 Edge are more than just a novelty this time, as Samsung has taken better advantage of them. The new phones debut Samsung’s new 12-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide f/1.7 aperture and Dual Pixel technology for faster shutter speeds and quicker auto-focus.

One of the biggest additions in the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge is the hybrid dual SIM (available in some regions). Both the phones support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 200GB).

Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge India Launch Set for Tuesday

Samsung India over the weekend started sending media invites for an event on Tuesday where the company is expected to unveil the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge premium smartphones.

The invite came with a tagline that said, “Witness The Next Galaxy Revolution as it unveils its new sensation!” Apart from the smartphones, Samsung is also expected to reveal the various accessories it revealed for the new Galaxy phones at MWC 2016.

To recall, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge were unveiled at MWC 2016 in Barcelona.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have already been listed with pricing elsewhere in the world, and we can expect the India pricing of both the smartphones to be around the same price band. The Galaxy S7 is likely to be priced between Rs. 45,000-50,000 while the Galaxy S7 Edge can be expected to feature a Rs. 54,000-60,000 price tag in India.

One of the biggest additions in the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge is the hybrid dual SIM (available in some regions). Both the phones support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 200GB).

The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge differ mainly in their screen sizes and battery capacities. The curved edges on the S7 Edge are more than just a novelty this time, as Samsung has taken better advantage of them. In addition to the People Edge, you also get Tasks Edge, which lets you quickly access frequently used apps and even speed-dial your favourite contacts. A few more Edge screen widgets such as Yahoo News Edge and ESPN Edge will offer snippets of information in the future.

The new phones debut Samsung’s new 12-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide f/1.7 aperture and Dual Pixel technology for faster shutter speeds and quicker autofocus. You can also quickly launch the camera by double tapping the home button. The cameras sit almost flush with the phones’ bodies, and the bulges of the previous models are now nearly non-existent.

To refresh specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S7 features a 5.1-inch QHD Super Amoled display while the Galaxy S7 Edge packs a 5.5-inch QHD Super Amoled display. As rumoured previously, both phones now sport an Always-On display which will let users check notifications, time, and date without having to wake up the device. Both will be available in two storage variants: 32GB and 64GB.

(Also see: Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge to Launch With Exynos SoC in India)

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are powered by an Exynos 8890 octa-core (2.3GHz quad-core + 1.6GHz quad-core) SoC or Qualcomm Snadragon 820 quad-core (2.15GHz dual-core + 1.6GHz dual-core) SoC, depending on the regions. India is expected to receive the Exynos-based version. Both will feature 4GB of RAM.

The Galaxy S7 packs a 3000mAh battery while the Galaxy S7 Edge includes a 3600mAh battery. Both phones feature fast charging technology. Both the models support NFC and MST payment technologies, house a fingerprint sensor and have IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
