Redefine what a phone can do
This is what a perfect balance between form and function looks like. Find out why Galaxy S7 edge and S7 are the best yet.
It’s not just a new phone. It brings a new way of thinking about what a phone can do. You defined the possibilities and we redefined the phone. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Rethink what a phone can do.
The beauty of what we’ve engineered is to give you the slimmest feel in your hand without compromising the big screen size. The elegantly curved front and back fit in your palm just right. It’s as beautiful to look at as it is to use.
Materials of craft
We spent a long time perfecting the curves of the Galaxy S7 edge and S7. Using a proprietary process called 3D Thermoforming, we melted 3D glass to curve with such precision that it meets the curved metal alloy to create an exquisitely seamless and strong unibody.
The dual-curve backs on the Galaxy S7 edge and S7 are the reason why they feel so comfortable when you hold them. Everything about the design, from the naturally flowing lines to the thin form factor, come together to deliver a grip that’s so satisfying, you won’t want to let go.
Water & dust resistant
With the Galaxy S7 edge and S7, you don’t have to worry about putting your phone down on wet surfaces. You can carry on using it even after dropping it in water. You can play games by the pool, post selfies at the beach and call for a cab in the rain. They’ve been awarded an IP (Ingress Protection) rating of 68.
Every single pixel on the Dual Pixel Sensor is used for phase detection, enabling autofocus that’s so incredibly fast and seamless that even the most sudden movements are caught in the act, even when the light starts to fade.
For the first time, you can capture sweeping movements in panoramas with motion. The panorama still captured at the same time is a seamless, stitched sequence of the clearest frames from the motion version. To relive the moment, all you have to do is swipe the screen or pan your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge sideways.
One. Two. Three. Cheese! Motion photo captures the three beautiful seconds that happen before you press the shutter. You can also choose which moment you want to preserve as the still photo.

Longer battery life
Both Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have bigger batteries, letting you watch your favourite TV shows and listen to music for hours on end. The custom CPU and highly advanced GPU ensure the batteries are used to their full potential.
Charging is fast
Even with the bigger batteries, you can depend on the built-in fast charging capabilities to keep you free from being tethered to a plug for too long.
Charging wirelessly is faster than ever
It’s obviously the easiest way to power your phone. You put your phone down and it begins charging. The fact that it’s really fast is what makes wireless charging with your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge so phenomenal.
The better edge
The edge accommodates up to 9 panels giving you access to everything you need right away, from calling a taxi to getting sports updates. With Apps edge, for instance, you can create up to 10 app shortcuts and folders.
Handle the edge
When you’re using the edge screen to do so much, it makes sense to tailor the handle so it fits your hand perfectly. Go to Settings to customise its size, transparency, and position.
Quick access. By creating shortcuts to specific functions of your favourite apps or contacts, everything you need quickly is on the edge, whether it’s taking selfies, opening a particular memo, or just calling mum.
Whether you need to measure that space between your desk and the wall, or to look for items under the bed, the edge screen will come in handy by transforming into a ruler, flashlight or compass.
Always On Display
With AOD, you can get information at a glance without waking up your phone. And it’s smart enough to be automatically disabled when the phone’s in your pocket or bag, when it’s face down, or when the battery is running low.
Information that matters
You get to choose what kind of information you’re able to check when the screen is off. To avoid screen burn-in, the graphics are routinely moved around.
Customise your display
Download themes to stylise your display. With the wide range of designs available at the Theme Store, it’s another way to add character to your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.
