For starters, it features a new design with “six string antenna lines”. Moreover, the body is made of metal and has a 2.5 D curved glass covering the display. Also, it sports the traditional Samsung home button with fingerprint sensor integrated into it.

Despite having a bigger screen (6.0 Inch) and a large battery, the phone still manages to have a low thickness of 6.9 mm, just like the iPhone 6s.

Notably, it weighs 180 grams that is ideal for a large display mobile.

Next, it comes with a huge 6.0 inch Full HD (1920*1080) Super AMOLED display with 367 PPi. It may not be as sharp as the Quad HD Display on S7 edge, but it is a super AMOLED from Samsung, which means it is one of the best displays.


It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 Chipset along with Adreno 510 GPU. The processor is faster in comparison to the Snapdragon 652 or the commonly used Snapdragon 625. Additionally, the Snapdragon 653 is manufactured using the more energy efficient process to prolong the battery life.
