Samsung Electronics has reportedly planned to start an initial production run of about 5 million Galaxy S7 smartphones. According to South Korea’s Electronic Times, the South Korean multinational conglomerate company will launch the Galaxy S7 handset in February.

Samsung will launch two different versions of the Galaxy S7 phones: a 5.2-inch flat-screen edition and a 5.5-inch curved-screen edition. The 5.5-inch curved-screen version will be christened the Galaxy S7 Edge. In the beginning, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer will produce about 3.3 million of flat-screen devices, followed by another 1.6 million of the curved-screen devices, reports Reuters.

According to GSM Arena, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will sport a 5.1-inch super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen packed with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution for the display. The screen will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that uses Force Touch display and TouchWiz UI.

The phone runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and is powered by Qualcomm’s MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset. You can expect super fast speed when navigating through various functions on the phone owing to the Galaxy S7’s 4GB RAM.

The primary camera in the phone is designed with a phase detection autofocus technology and a dual-LED flash light. You can now use the secondary camera in the phone for taking selfies and also for making video calls.

The secondary/front camera offers a dual video call option along with an Auto HRD technology for capturing brighter images more accurately. The various connectivity options in the phone include Wi-Fi direct, hotspot, v4.2 Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, infrared port and microUSB v2.0.
