While the Galaxy S6’s design made huge waves and completely obliterated the notion that Samsung would forever stick to plastic-clad flagships, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to make a comparatively smaller splash in terms of aesthetic changes.

So far, the rumor mill has said that, aside from adding back a microSD slot and possibly waterproofing to the mix, the Galaxy S7 would largely look the same as its predecessor. Over the weekend, Evan Blass (aka Evleaks) brought us alleged renders of the Galaxy S7 that further confirmed this claim, at least as far as the device’s front was concerned. Curious how the back will look? Now Evan is back again, this time showing off the rear.

As you can see, there really is little different here, with essentially the same design for the camera setup, and the expected presence of Samsung/Galaxy branding. One change, however, is that it appears like the back glass may slightly be curved on the sides, which could potentially allow for a more comfortable grip.

Overall, the design of the Galaxy S7 is a familiar one, but that’s not a bad thing, as the Galaxy S6 is regarded as one of the most beautiful smartphones of 2016. Where the Galaxy S7 is expected to really stand out is in the hardware and software.
