5.7-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 (Edge Plus?) with 12 MP rear camera allegedly photographed
According to recent rumors, Samsung may be getting ready to release no less than four Galaxy S7 variants - two with regular, flat screens, and two with dual-curve screens (these will, of course, be part of the Edge series).

Yesterday, we showed you what could be the front panel of the regular 5.2-inch Galaxy S7, and today we have a photo that seemingly reveals a 5.7-inch Galaxy S7. Originally posted on Reddit, the photo - seen on the left - appears to be showing a 5.7-inch screen (with 1440 x 2560 pixels) that's curved - so this might be the Galaxy S7 Edge Plus.

The new image also suggests that this 5.7-inch Galaxy S7 is using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset (which includes a powerful Adreno 530 GPU), and comes with 4 GB of RAM. Moreover, the handset seems to feature a 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 12 MP rear camera. A couple of months ago, we heard that Samsung was working on a new 12 MP camera (with a sensor larger than the one included in the 16 MP cameras of the Galaxy S6 family), so we won't be surprised if this really ends up being used for the Galaxy S7 series. A larger sensor usually means higher image quality, even if the pixel resolution is a bit lower, so the new 12 MP camera shouldn't be a downgrade from the old 16 MP one.

Naturally, for now, we can't confirm any of the details above. But Samsung is likely going to announce the Galaxy S7 line-up next month, at MWC 2016, so we'll see then if this 5.7-inch S7 Edge Plus is real or not.

He is a troll. If his statement had any relevance to this article whatsoever, I would agree with you. It doesn't.

I'm not sure if LG is the best or not but I do know that LG is better than Samsung.
LG>>>>>>>>>Samsung. Despite our disagreement I already liked your comment.

Can't be since the Note 5 is the best phone on the market, bar none.

LOL i wonder what Samsung fanboys will have to say now that the S7 is supposed to downgrade resolution for improved low-light performance matching the iPhone 6S...

S6, edge, edge plus and note 5 are already better than your 6s in the camera department. What are you yapping about?

The 6S camera still struggles on z height for the camera...so I won't be surprised if they added incremental updates on it in the 7

Matching the 6s? Dude don't flatter yourself. The s6, s6 edge, s6 edge plus, and note5 have better camera setup, both in lowlight and well lit areas than the iphone 6s and plus. I have no doubt whatsoever that the s7 and s7 edge will trounce those apple garbage.

To Bad The Only 12mp Camera That's Good Is The One On The Nexus 5x/6p. And Let's Face It Regardless Of Mp Count Samsung Flagships Produce The Best Photos Every Year.

Lol I wonder what Apple fan boys will say now that the 6s downgraded low light performance for improved resolution. Apple did the same thing but backwards this year. Samsung sensor BTW is about the same resolution and the 6s but with more low light performance than the 6.

not matching 6s but matching nexus 5x/6p... nexus has proved mp count doesnt matter much... larger sensor does

I wasn't trolling you there. I simply said that you spend alot of money on gadgets that many people can't afford.

What's wrong with my statement?
