We’ve seen dozens of rumors already, but a new leak suggests yet another variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7 may be in play. According to a post on Reddit, there’s a new variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7 floating around which has a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and a peculiar 12 megapixel camera. While Samsung’s flagship phones have featured 13 megapixel or higher imaging sensors for the past three years, the 12 megapixel sensor of this rumored device does align with reports that Samsung is working on a 12 megapixel mobile imaging sensor with a larger footprint than the one currently used in the Samsung Galaxy S6. The lower megapixel count and larger size would allow the sensor to capture more light, leading to clearer images – particularly in low-light conditions.
With all the rumors surrounding the Samsung’s Galaxy S7 lineup, keep track of what rumors and credible and which ones aren’t has become quite a chore. This new 5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 rumor appears to be credible, but we’re going to wait a bit longer before we lump it in with the 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 rumors.
Would you be willing to buy a phone with a lower resolution camera if it promised to delivery higher quality images?
