Rumor: Samsung Galaxy S7 to be made out of magnesium

Galaxy S7

Pile this under the daily #GalaxyS7 rumor list. A new report is suggesting that Samsung’s much talked about flagship handset will feature a magnesium body. Devices like the Oppo R1 and the OnePlus 2 already feature magnesium shell exteriors, so there’s no reason why Samsung can’t take the same route.

To put things in plain words, using magnesium alloy would mean that devices are significantly lighter and would allow the company to cut down on the overall weight of the device. This seems like something that Samsung would be very interested in doing, so we don’t see why this can’t come to fruition.

However, with no proper evidence at our disposal yet, it’s a little too early to jump to conclusions. The Galaxy S7 is expected to pack a top of the line Snapdragon 820 SoC underneath along with 4GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A 5.2 inch Quad HD display is being hinted, which seems very likely at the moment.

  1. Either lower the price for the models with large builtin storage or go back to microSD cards. A significantly enhanced camera would be nice too. These are the two main reasons that I don’t own an S6.

  2. The S-5 I own is very buggy. Settings change by themselves. I frequently can’t get on line using cell services even when there is a strong signal. I have to do lots of work arounds. I hope that the S-7 is more stable and reliable. I LOVE the feature that places calls over the internet when wifi is available. I don’t know other phones that have that feature.
