More than a smart phone – the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and S7 defy previously held notions of mobile phone limitations, carrying the legacy of Samsung’s premium mobile experience with its industry-leading features. The most exciting feature of this latest release is that it is water and dust resistant, ensuring that it could survive getting wet in the rain or being accidentally dropped into the pool. Now you have more reasons to take selfies or under water shots when you go on your next water adventure. The phone can withstand being submerged in 1.5 meters of water for half an hour and a DLSR-like real Pixel camera that uses a dual photodiode technology – originally used in professional DSLR cameras and has now been adopted for the very first time in smart phones.

Samsung GEAR VR is the first consumerized virtual reality headset, making it accessible to more premium Samsung smartphone users. Compared to other VR headsets, this Gear VR is lightweight and offers more cushioning that provides comfort for users. Virtual reality is now accessible to a wider audience because a Gear VR is also compatible with a wider set of devices; it works seamlessly with a Galaxy smartphone that easily slips into the Gear VR. It is mostly used for games and entertainment after its launch a couple of years ago that showcased a computer generated simulation of an imaginary world presented to you as if you’re actually there and part of it. 

Aside from the GEAR VR, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge can also seamlessly connect with the latest Gear S2 smart watch, the wearable of choice for fitness and fashion enthusiast alike, offering both connectivity and convenience for those who are challenged by the need to carry their smart phones everywhere but at the same time don’t want to compromise style.
