Galaxy S7 leak reveals new design direction for Samsung’s S range

All eyes will be on Barcelona a week on Sunday is expected to reveal a new flagship handset: The Samsung Galaxy S7.

Well, we say “expected”, but it is essentially a foregone conclusion thanks to tonnes of leaks – the latest of which gives us our clearest look yet at the new phone, which has a slight difference in design over the 2015’s Galaxy S6.

The above render was obtained by serial leaker @evleaks and shows what appears to be the curved-screen “S7 Edge” – which we expect to launch alongside its more conventional sibling. The grainier pictures below were obtained by French site Nowhere Else, and show either the S7, or a dummy model in gold.

Reliable Rumours

The above images appear to be in line with earlier rumours that suggested that the S7 Edge will sport a 5.7 inch screen, and the S7 a 5.1 inch (same as the S6). It’s also possible to see on the images that the camera bump is less mercifully smaller.

The key difference here is that we’re seeing what is likely a real unit, ‘confirming’ the curved back of the Note 5 will be used on the Galaxy S7 and likely S7 Edge too. This gives is a more rounded feel in the palm, which was a popular feature for reviewers.

As previously reported, the new phones are expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors, and have a 16MP camera on the rear. There are also rumours that the new phone will have a much larger battery than its predecessor, and that they will be water resistant.
