Leaked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge renders seemingly reveal the phones' final design

Leaked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge renders seemingly reveal the phones' final design
Ladies and gentlemen, we now have what might be the very first renders that accurately present Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, both of which will likely be announced next month at MWC 2016 (on February 21, to be exact).

Revealed by @evleaks, the renders seem to be press images that may have originated from Samsung (thus not being fan-made renders). In the past, @evleaks unveiled accurate images of many new smartphones ahead of their official announcements, so we're inclined to believe that the new renders are legit.

As expected, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge don't look too different from last year's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. However, while the Galaxy S7 may keep the same 5.1-inch display of the S6, the Galaxy S7 edge could have a 5.5-inch screen, and its render seems to be supporting this idea.

Minor design changes aside, the Galaxy S7 series should bring significant improvements over the S6 family, including water-resistance, microSD card support, and larger, longer-lasting batteries. Depending on market, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge should be powered by either a Snapdragon 820, or an Exynos 8890 processor. The handsets are expected to have 4GB of RAM, and 12 MP rear cameras with large sensors (these should be better than the 16 MP rear cameras of the S6 family).

Of course, right now, nothing is certain, so we're impatiently waiting for Samsung to finally announce its Galaxy S7 series. What about you?

Dear Samsung,

Please send me a dual-sim S7 edge ASAP.

Thanks

The front button looks leveled to the rest of the front, except the rim around it. Reminds me SII's. And the line along the metal side is gone. That wallpaper though is so unreal and basic

It is likely to be a dual sim / Micro SD hybrid

I don't see them fitting a separate slot somewhere

The bottom bezel is now shorter, that's a good start. Now please, remove the glass back.

the glass back is the most beautiful part of this phone and it allows wireless charging

It's more than beautiful, but only when it's clean. And it's almost impossible to keep it clean if you intend to use it naked, and for me cases are my worst enemy.

If I will get S7 Edge I will buy skin with texture for back. No fingerprints and no slippery :-)

Maybe Samsung need to use a frosted glass back cover like Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact, not only it makes the back of the phone a lot cleaner but also much more pleasant to hold since there's no slimyness as oils and moisture builds up on the back cover.

I would rather see them go full Metal/magnesium, or maybe go back to the faux leather design. I had the note 4 for 6 months, naked, and I sold with no scratches or scuffs whatsoever.

full metal would mean no wireless charging. A better solution would be frosted glass like Sony or a back glass with oleophobic coating.

Are your hands made of grease and grime? I've been using my Xperia Z2 for almost 1.5 years now and there are no marks or oil on the back 'glass' despite never once using a case.

How long do you need to wipe your phone with a piece of napkin ? People wanted to get rid of plastic from the Galaxy flagships and now when Samsung chose glass, people are moaning about the fingerprint and dirt. Come on. Just wipe it !

72. maherk (Posts: 3474; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)


I don't need to keep wiping my phone every time i touch it.
And I don't care what people wanted, I always preferred the soft leather like touch of the Note 3, S5 and Note 4 phones, and I would definitely take it back over the buttery slippery back of the Note 5.
This is my opinion, and NONE of your arguments will change it.

Even with the smudge I still prefer glass over plastic or leather . and glass is looks far more premium than metal imo.

I love the glass back on my note 5, that being said I do somewhat agree with you on the slippery part. Had a speck case on mine but hated covering up my beautiful phone. Bought me the spigen Neo Hybrid Crystal case for  the Galaxy Note  5 and love it. It still shows off my beautiful note 5.

You can never please folks, human nature. Not long ago they were chastising the iPhone for having glass panel; now glass is the most beautiful thing.

After having Optimus G I wouldn't want another glass back phone. Sure it looks nice and feels not to bad, but man it's slippery.

For people like you Sony is keeping their stupendous glass back designs, and now Samsung too. A mobile phone should have practical material choice, if it has to be glass then they have to invent something which won't catch all the greases and fingerprints and smudges of the whole world. In that case it will be the most awful looking part of a mobile phone. So plastic/pleather/faux leather, whatever the label you put to it, that's much more practical than glass, and its much better to grip too.

It just baffles me how stupid humanity is becoming nowadays.

Reasonable amounts of bezel (unlike the iPhone), is one way a smartphone these days can have room for design. It's just we have a few people here who have sick wet dreams about no bezels that they get OCD about a few milometers.

61. BradyCrack (Posts: 513; Member since: 29 Dec 2015)


Ok then,
It's like LG G4 I always thought it was bland on the front (back totally different).

84. medtxa (Posts: 1126; Member since: 02 Jun 2014)


it's the shape and symmetrical design. iphone design are neat but the bezel are still ovesized, and LG phone doesn't looks as good in landscape even though with minimal bezels.

posted on 30 Jan 2016, 04:46

I love the iPhone designs, but certainly have oversized bezels.

We are forgetting one key design mistake, no USB Type C :(

106. j2001m (Posts: 2836; Member since: 28 Apr 2014)


It may not have an type c port as this will mean they after to offer a new VR headset and this may stop s6 users from upgrading if they just got one.

Please also note that I have both a s6 edge plus and a nexus 6p and there is nothing good about USB type c on that phone, and you can only use the one lead , it s a real problem, not 100% on why you need type c on any phone at this time.
Type c will only be any good when we get USB 3.1 and only when that happens

146. JumpinJackROMFlash (Posts: 450; Member since: 10 Dec 2014)


I believe it was implied that a type C obviously should have 3.1 otherwise ther's no point really.

If the rumor specs and features are true the only thing that holds this back from being a perfect new phone is the s**tty glass back. Super disappointing they are keeping that.

121. stardomains (Posts: 27; Member since: 05 Nov 2015)


Yeah. Put something grippy on it like the LG V10 for the back. Dual stereo front speakers too and it will be 10/10.

Don't have to be a jackass about it. Just answer the question.

It appears that the PA writers have become more belligerent these days. Might have to do with their inability to write proper English sentences.

@ kevin91202: I just wanted to point out the fact that looking at images without reading the article containing them isn't the best way to gather information. In this case, it's mentioned in the very first paragraph that the S7 and S7 edge will likely be announced on February 21.
