Samsung Galaxy S7 design allegedly revealed, Galaxy S7 Plus could sport a 6-inch screen

Samsung Galaxy S7 design allegedly revealed, Galaxy S7 Plus could sport a 6-inch screen
Last week, we heard that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 would not bring a major design change compared to the Galaxy S6 series. Now, thanks to several leaked renders, we may have an early look at what no major design change actually means.

Said Galaxy S7 renders were revealed by case maker ITSkins, and show a device that largely resembles the regular Galaxy S6, with one noticeable differences: the home button is now rectangular, and doesn't have the rounded shape of the home buttons included on the Galaxy S6 family. Reportedly, the Galaxy S7 measures 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm, being just about the same size as the Galaxy S6 (143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm), though a hair thicker. The rear camera bump is there to stay, and so is an accompanying LED flash, plus a heart rate sensor. If these dimensions are correct, the Galaxy S7 certainly sports a 5.1-inch display, like its predecessor.

More interestingly is the fact that, allegedly, there's also a Galaxy S7 Plus handset that measures 163.32 x 82.01 x 7.82 mm. This means the S7 Plus is larger than the 5.7-inch Galaxy S6 edge+ (154.4 x 75.8 x 6.9 mm), being about the same size as the 6-inch Galaxy Mega 2 (163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm). Thus, we can assume that the Galaxy S7 Plus sports a 6-inch display.

Of course, for now there's no way to verify the details presented above. Samsung will likely announce the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Plus in February during MWC 2016. What do you hope to see from the S7 series?

S4 ergonomics with camera dedicated button port, IR blaster port, S4 like home button.. Well maybe it should be called S4 2016 edition.. And repeat massive sales might follow... "just saying"

So doesn't look like an S5 by a longshot.
If u mean it's has the familiar look of the Galaxy lineup, then sure.

The regular S6 is ugly in my opinion... The S6 edge looks better though.

Yh exactly! The s6 edge even sold 3x more that s6 it self...

Now rumours says there won't be s7 edge! That the edge version would come with 5.7 inch screen!

I like WTF samsung? Am I suppose to "BY FORCE" go to a bigger screen just because I want to upgrade from an s6 edge? Cos the obviously don't expect me to go from "edge screen" back to "flat screen"

!The leaks have a USB port over USB type c so I be thinking fake or pre-model, also the home key looks way to small

Camera Hump Is The Worse. And I Remember When Those Prototype S6''s Were Leaked, Everyone Hated Them But The Finished Product Was Praised For Its Design. As Far As This Leak Goes Pic 3 Looks Bad I Don't Like It, Seems Different From The Green Pics Somehow.

I wouldn't be surprised to see metal removable back plate for sd and removable battery

Samsung doesn't want to leak anything yet , it is from Chinese Manufactory

Things work like , an insider steal the data for the phone's size and etc , sell it to only one person for 10K , then the one gonna sell it to next level for 4 persons for 3000 , these 4 gonna sell it for more , just one by one , pass down

The home button looks different now. The rectangle button looks better than the round design.

That's Galaxy S4!

I think the GS6's Home button was better.

Gs6 home button is better unless they change the fingerprint scanner. You have to completely cover the button to get 100% accuracy and the rectangle will be even harder for people with small fingers to completely cover.

It should be rounder than the one on the GS6 but not a full circle or isheep will cry foul like typical north american whiny behaviour.

Unless your finger are smaller than that of a 5 year old, I think the shape of the button doesn't matter. The point is being able to get the print needed for the image so you can unlock without a swipe.

Look how small it is with its present shape.

It was iphone 6 that copied the original HTC One. But I do agree with you that Samsung is bad trying to copy the iphone in every iteration.

It's not Samsung's fault!!
You, the consumers, you all bashed Sammy for cheap plastic and demand metal/glass unibody.
So now that Samsung is listening to you bashers, you people call it copying???
Shame on you pointless bashers!!
Please stop buying Android (and notably Samsung) phones; You people are ruinning them for me!

Being metal and glass doesn't mean it has to be similar to the iphone.

Ask Apple to change a design that you want to see on your Samsung device. Problem solved.

I genuinely don't see how you think this looks any more like an iPhone then a galaxy s6 does because it's literally an identical design barring the home button.

Even then, with over a thousand phone manufacturers in the world there are only so many takes on a rectangle.

S5 has IP68, removable battery and micro SD and the S6 has none. The S5 was Samsung's best galaxy after the S2 imo.

The S7+ should not be that huge in my opinion. 160+ mm is way too large. It can not fit in any pocket, that is for sure.
About the design, it would be better if Samsung will change the shape of the camera. It looks really boring now. A circle one in the middle of the device would look better.
A memory card slot will be a good idea, and an FM radio too(there are still people who is using that feature in some countries, so it is better to not forget them).

I hope to see 5.2" screen in Galaxy S6 size body with SD card slot.
That would make one sleek nearly bezel less frame :-)

Time for reviewers to dock 3 full points from the score for using a slightly modified design while Apple gets no points taken off for using the exact same design and no changes at all.

I hope the micro USB port instead of type c isn't true. I still haven't used the port once on my gs6 but I am sure stupid reviewers will dock a point or two for not having one.

I also hope the GS7 plus isn't that freaking huge. Although to be fair the GS6 edge plus is tiny and way more compact than the 6s plus and Nexus 6p.
