Like with the changes in the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S7 Edge upgrades are mostly internal but it’s nothing to scoff at. Externally the most obvious change is the size since it’s sporting a much larger 5.5-inch display.
There’s dual-SIM and microSD card support as well which is lacking in its predecessor. The IP68-certified body, updated OS, and a much larger battery are very welcome additions as well.
