When, last year, Apple decided to go big and ditch the 4-inch formula, it did so by releasing two iPhones at the same time, measuring 4.7 and 5.5-inches. Interestingly enough, according to a rumor from Korea, Samsung might borrow a page from Apple’s book, and release the inevitable Galaxy S7 in two sizes.
The source behind these rumors reveals a few other details about the internal specifications, such as the amount of RAM and the resolution of the display(s), so keep on scrolling and join us below for the full report.
Samsung Galaxy S7 to be Launched in Two Sizes?
Although Samsung released two Galaxy S6 variants in the first half of the year, both terminals share the same screen diagonal (5.1-inches) and resolution (2560 x 1440). According to a South Korean publication, Samsung might release the Galaxy S7 in two sizes, one measuring 5.2-inches and the other 5.8-inches.
The report goes on to mention that the S7 will boast an Ultra HD display (4K) but it’s unclear if both models will make use of this insane resolution. The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium unveiled at IFA in Berlin packs a 4K 5.5-inch panel, which results in a mind-boggling pixel density of about 808 pixels per inch. Such a resolution on a 5.2-inch surface would output 847 pixels per inch, and 759 ppi on a 5.8-inch display.
The source mentions that the Samsung Galaxy S7 should have 4 GB of RAM and that both models will be released at the end of the year. Yeah… It’s highly unlikely for Samsung to release the Galaxy S7 in 2015, so we advise you to take the information above along with a proverbial pinch of salt. But assuming that some of the data is correct, what would you say if Samsung would release the S7 in 5.2-inch and 5.8-inch flavors simultaneously? Do you think a 5.8-inch panel on an SGS would be over the line?
