Samsung Galaxy S7 rumored to sport magnesium build, Hi-Fi audio

Samsung logoYesterday 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 new rumors.

As always with such things, don't forget to take 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 new alloy will apparently make 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 said 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 MHz sampling. Its overall power consumption is very small, with only 1mW needed in standby and less than 40mW at all times.
