What has changed:
* Updated CPU
* Larger 4GB RAM
* MicroSD card support using hybrid SIM slot
* No 128GB variant
* Smaller megapixel count on the rear camera, no OIS, but with larger aperture and newer camera tech
* Larger aperture on front camera
* IP68 rating
* Updated OS
* Larger battery

Most of the drastic changes made on the Galaxy S7 is in the internal hardware. It still has the same display size, type, resolution, and glass protection but it is now more powerful under the hood with IP68-certified body.


There are some compromises like the smaller megapixel count on the rear camera and lack of OIS compared to its predecessor but it now has newer camera technology.

Samsung will no longer offer a 128GB variant but that is understandable given that you can now use a microSD card at the sacrifice of dual-SIM functionality.
