Samsung’s latest bid for mobile supremacy

In the war to deliver the world’s most successful mobile, there are two brands that have gained a reputation for impressive innovation and stylish design. And whilst Apple’s much-anticipated iPhone 7 looks like it won’t be released until at least September, Samsung look to be delivering us the most impressive mobile device yet with their brand new Galaxy S7.

The mobile was finally unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where the world’s top tech companies revealed their latest products in this hugely-competitive market. And with just days until the Samsung device becomes available in our shops, here’s a look at the way that it can aid productivity and even provide a great casino game-playing experience.

On basic physical appearances, the Samsung Galaxy S7 bears many similarities to its predecessor and features both a standard model, and the ‘Edge’ variant with its famous ‘wrap-around’ screen. But it’s what lurks within the sleek metal and glass chassis that has excited most tech fans.

As well as the much larger 3600mAh battery that can facilitate many hours of entertainment such as watching online TV series and casino gaming, the Galaxy S7 features a powerful processor that utilises an Octa-core with Samsung Exynos chip, or a quad-core with Snapdragon 820 depending on the user’s region.

samsung11Such features will benefit the Edge device which features a massive 5.94 inch screen that will seek to cater to the rising wave of gamers who use mobile tech to explore the new graphical capacities of modern gaming.

Action games such as Modern Combat 5 will look great on the big screen, and one of Lucky Nugget’s new releases such as their online slots games that allow for an immersive recreation of these famous casino games will also benefit greatly from the improved graphical facilities. The casino games also feature a handy ‘instant-play’ feature that means that you won’t clog up your phone with unnecessary software, and can just get straight on with the great Flash-based gaming fun.

Other features that could benefit the online gaming experience include a special water-cooling system that is able to keep the processors cooled during a particularly arduous online casino session.

The ability to game on the go has also benefitted from Samsung’s innovative features such as wireless charging and a Game Launcher system. And with the device being able to stand being submerged for up to 30 minutes in one metre of water, it’s further proof of just how resilient our mobile devices have become.

A smartphone’s camera is another pivotal feature, and the S7 looks to have this covered through the 12-megapixel camera that boasts new auto-focus technology and special adaptions for low-light environments.

And with a range of further exciting features such as an always-on screen, and three attractive colours to choose from, it looks like whether we’re playing online casino games or taking a selfie, our mobile futures have become a little brighter thanks to the Samsung Galaxy S7.
