Samsung Galaxy S7 to feature a 3D Touch display like the iPhone 6s

Giving credence to prior rumors surrounding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy flagship smartphone, The Wall Street Journal on Monday said that the Galaxy S7 will launch in March of next year outfitted with a pressure-sensing screen akin to Apple’s 3D Touch technology on the iPhone 6s.

With the Galaxy S5, Samsung copied the Touch ID fingerprint scanner of the iPhone 5s rather poorly, and with the Galaxy S6, the Korean company took a lot of design cues from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The report also claims that the S7 will be available in an edge variant and feature a camera that has been optimised for low-light, improved faster charging, USB Type-C port, and more. The report also claims that Samsung intends to launch the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge at MWC next year.

The device will look largely similar to its predecessor and other hardware improvements reportedly “aren’t a major departure” from the Galaxy S6. “In some ways, the changes involving the Galaxy S7 will be less striking than those made earlier this year, when Samsung added the curved-screen companion to the Galaxy S6 and redesigned the look and feel of the handsets,” reads the report.

Faced with second straight year of mobile profit declines, a corporate shake-up at Samsung earlier this month saw the replacement of its longtime mobile chief J.K. Shin with former head of mobile research and development D.J. Koh. J.K. Shin will now oversee mobile R&D, product planning, design, manufacturing and sales and marketing.
