Despite the leaks, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge wowed as both devices were showcased at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event. As expected, the images and specs that were leaked was spot on.

The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge follow sleek design aesthetics that debuted with the Galaxy S6. Inside, you’ll find 64-bit octa-core processors and 4GB of RAM (Samsung PH declined to comment which processor is inside, but my money is on Exynos). Both feature capless, water and dust resistance with an IP68 certification, meaning it can be submerged in 15 meters of water in half an hour. It is also dust-tight.
