  • This is Phil with Android Central, and it’s time for the launch of theSamsung Galaxy S7

  • EDGE at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Weve gotten our hands on the GS7 EDGE just

  • ahead of the event, so let’s take a look at what’s new in this latest Android flagship

  • smartphone. Were talking about the 5.5-inch display. The much bigger battery. The return

  • of the microSD card. And, yes, it’s waterproof.

  • So This is the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. As the name implies it’s a lot like its sibling,

  • the Samsung Galaxy S7. It’s got the same internalseither a high end Qualcomm Snapdragon

  • processor or Samsung Exynos, plus 4 gigabytes of RAM and 32 gigabytes of storage. it’s

  • got mostly the same design, which definitely is a continuation of the Galaxy S6. And it’s

  • using the same microUSB port which let's it also work in the current generation Gear VR

  • .

  • But there are a few important differences in the GS7 edge.

  • The first is that it’s bigger. The Galaxy S7 has a 5.1-inch displaythe GS7 edge

  • is larger at 5.5 inches. (That’s still smaller than the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 5.) It’s got

  • 20 percent larger battery at 3600 mili-amp-hours. That’s a big battery, and it’s a big deal.

  • And the second is that edge display, which is more like what we had in the Galaxy Note

  • edge than in the GS6 edge. Samsung is using more pixels for the edge display this time

  • around, and you can do more with it.

  • You can load it up with app shortcuts. Or shortcuts to specific tasks. You can get the

  • weather and news. You can have browser shortcuts, tools stocks. You can have quick access to

  • your contacts for calling and texting. It’s highly customizable and a lot more useful

  • than before, and you can just easily swipe your way through them. (And you still have

  • that excellent edge bedside clock.)

  • Now The display in the GS7 phonesit’s still quad-HD AMOLED and it's still very gorgeous

  • it's also has an always-on mode so you can check the clock or calendar at a glance,

  • and get basic notification information.

  • And the fingerprint-scanning home button is there, still flanked by capacitive buttons

  • for back and recent apps.

  • The other important features include the microSD card, which can add up to 200 more gigabytes

  • of storage for things like movies and pictures and music. But it’s not using the adoptable

  • storage feature in android 6.0. And speaking of that, yes, the GS7 edge is

  • launching with Marshmallow, the latest version of Android. It’s still highly customized,

  • of course, but colors are definitely more muted.

  • And it’s got a special games launcher and support for the new Vulkan gaming APIs. If

  • you've never heard the name Vulkan before, all you need to know is for developers will

  • make it a lot easier to make games and especially VR gamesrun more smoothly on your phone.

  • Now The camera is always a big seller Samsung’s top phones. The Galaxy S7 edge takes the total

  • resolution actually down a little bit to 12 megapixels. But the sensor itself uses larger

  • individual pixels that let in more light, and it's using a wider f/1.7 lens as well.

  • The end result is a lot more light is coming in, and that’s a good thing. Plus every

  • single pixel is now being used for phase-detection auto-focus, which is faster than ever. ANNNNND

  • it’s got optical image stabilizationthat’s OIS. So shaky video and blurry pictures will

  • be less of an issue. We have no doubt that this camera is going to be good.

  • And that brings us to what may be my favorite feature in the Galaxy S7 edgeit’s got

  • an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. That is, it’s waterproof. And it’s waterproof

  • without having covering any of the ports with annoying flaps.

  • So there’s a very quick initial look at the brand new Galaxy S7 edge. It’s waterproof.

  • It’s got a huge battery. It’s got that excellent edge display.

  • And weve got so much more coverage coming your way from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

  • Be sure to give this video a thumbs up, and head on down below to the description for

  • links to everything you need to know on the Galaxy S7 and GS7 edge!
