Samsung Galaxy S7 Rumored To Sport Magnesium Build, Hi-Fi Audio

Yesterday we heard that Samsung is planning on announcing the Galaxy S7 in January, at least a month earlier than the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. And today some more details about the next Samsung flagship have seemingly emerged, thanks to a couple of recent rumors.

As always with such things, don't foracquire to hold everything you're about to read with a grain of salt. Ready? Here goes. The S7 will allegedly be made from a magnesium alloy, at least its frame will. Samsung could be keeping the glass back that debuted with the S6 this year. The recent alloy will apparently create it sturdier while also giving it an even more premium feel, which is not something we expect anyone to complain about.

Moving on, the Galaxy S7 is assumed to also come with the Sabre 9018AQ2M audio chip by ESS Technology, which will turn the phone into a Hi-Fi powerhouse, with superior audio quality. The chip in question reportedly features 129 dB signal-to-noise ratio, and it supports PCM up to 32-bit and 384 KHz, as well as DSD 11.2 Mega Hertz (MHz) sampling. Its overall power consumption is very small, with only 1mW needed in standby and less than 40mW at all times.
