I think It looks almost exactly the same as the S6!
The Galaxy S7 Edge has a 12-megapixel camera, compared to last year’s 16-megapixel shooter. But S7 phones have a slightly wider aperture, too (f1.7 compared to f1.9), which would let in a bit more light than the S6.
The S7 and S7 Edge are available March 11, with preorders beginning February 23. Samsung hasn’t announced pricing, but it did announce a deal: If you buy either S7 phone between February 23 and March 18, Samsung will give you a free Gear VR virtual reality headset with a bundle of six games. The Gear VR will work with both new S7 phones.
