Samsung Galaxy S7 is the name of the yet to be released smartphone model which is being labeled as a worthy successor of the S6 that has been recently launched.

Derived from the Korean Hanja dialect, ‘Samsung’ translates to three stars in English wherein three is representative of something truly powerful. True to its name, the Korean company which started out as a trading entity in 1938 grew into a global conglomerate within 30 years of having been established and at present spans several niches, electronics being one of them.

As an undisputed leader in several fields, Samsung is devoted to creating products that would impact the lives of its users in a positive way and thus benefit mankind in its entirety.
