The next flagship from the company is also said to have a glass back that is present on the Galaxy S6. The glass back offers a premium look to the phone while the magnesium alloy frame will make it sturdy. In addition, the report suggests that the S7 will feature a SABRE 9018AQ2M chip made by ESS Technology which will apparently boost the quality of sound. The chip has a 129 dB signal-to-noise ratio and has support for formats such as DSD and PCM p to 32-bit and 384 KHz.

Just yesterday, a new patent filing from Samsung revealed that the Galaxy S7 will feature 3D Touch. Previous reports have suggested that the Galaxy S7 that is expected to be announced in January will sport a single curved display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 for some units and a USB Type C.
