MTN Uganda unleashes the Galaxy s7: Comes with a bunch of goodies
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge that was launched globally about a few weeks back in Barcelona and comes in with much revamped features aside from the last Samsung S6. The S7 comes in both the revolutionary edge version and the sleek contemporary Design and is now ready for prime time on the big Yellow network. You can now get the Galaxy s7 at MTN Uganda shops for only UGX 2.5 million and the Galaxy s7 Edge at UGX 2.85 million. Just as expected, the new Samsung flagship will be bundled with several goodies. First you will get a Samsung Gear VR for that extra vitual reality gaming and 30 GB of data valid for 1 month.
In terms of specs, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are identical with the exception of their displays and battery sizes. The S7 edge has a larger 5.5-inch quad HD Super AMOLED display, whereas last year’s Galaxy S6 edge had the same 5.1-inch screen size as the Galaxy S6, which is still the panel size used in the Galaxy S7. As a final not of differentiation between the two phones, the S7 packs a large 3,000 mAh battery while the S7 edge has an even bigger 3,600 mAh battery.
Both models will be powered by a 2.15 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor for the USA market and Samsung’s own Exynos chipset will power the rest of the phones. Both versions will feature comparable performance; Samsung says the CPU in the Galaxy S7 series is 30% faster than the chip that powered last year’s models, and the GPU is 64% faster.
Other highlights include Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 32GB of storage and IP68 dust and water resistance. Both phones also support expandable memory thanks to an included microSD card slot, which will be a big deal for Samsung fans who were unhappy that last year’s phones didn’t have support for memory cards.
Waterproofing is great and expandable storage is fantastic, but neither of those much-wanted features take center stage on the Galaxy S7. While we haven’t yet been able to test it extensively yet, but we hope to give it a spin soon and drop our review.
