Update: Just minutes after we published this post, we’ve come across yet another Galaxy S7 leak. This one shows a Galaxy S7 dummy unit, complete with the curved back we’ve seen in other leaks. Source: Pisapapeles – via: Nowhereelse
Gone are the days when Samsung was able to keep us in the dark on its flagship plans. These days the surprise is thoroughly spoiled by a flood of leaks, weeks ahead of the unveiling of the Galaxy S7.
The image above shows the silver version of curved-screen device, which, according to the FCC, will launch with a massive 3,600 mAh battery. There’s not much we can infer from the shot – the device looks almost identical to the Galaxy S6 Edge+. The biggest difference is the subtle curve at the top and bottom of the device, complementing the more dramatic curvature of the laterals. This is a design touch we’ve noticed in the hands-on image of the S7 Edge as well.
Up until now, leaks revealed the all-black version of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, so this is our first look at the silver variant.
All in all, this is just another confirmation of something we’ve been suspecting for a long time: the Galaxy S7 will bring just minor design changes compared to its predecessor. The difference that most users will notice is probably the camera lens, that protrudes less for a more streamlined look.
The countdown is on for the release of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on February 21 at MWC Barcelona. But MWC is so much more than Samsung this year, and you can get a good idea of what we expect to see at the show from our MWC preview.
Thoughts on this design?
