Samsung’s current flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S7 Edge has been adjudged the “Best Smartphone of 2016” by the GSMA at the annual Global Mobile Awards at the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona.
Launched in March last year, the Galaxy S7 Edge has been on sale for almost a year now, but it still remains a highly competitive device even against newer competition. It has managed to quite well in terms of sales as well, minimizing the effects of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco for Samsung. With the latest Android Nougat update, the smartphone has been improved further and now offers an even better user experience than it did at launch last year.
“We are honored to be recognized for our craftsmanship in design and innovation with the Galaxy S7 edge,” said Junho Park, Vice President of Global Product Strategy, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “This award is a testament to our constant pursuit of excellence as we continue to exceed consumers’ expectations through revolutionary mobile technology.”
After serving as the flagship Galaxy smartphone for a lot longer than expected, the Galaxy S7 Edge will finally be succeeded by the Galaxy S8+ on the 29th of March. The Galaxy S8+ will be a significant upgrade over the Galaxy S7 Edge in a number of areas, although in some areas the two handsets will be largely similar.
