This Galaxy S7 concept video depicts the latest design leaks
The Galaxy S7 production process should already be ramping up, if Samsung wants to announce it on February 21st indeed, as that's the date rumored for its Unpacked event to precede the big MWC expo next month. Judging from the leaks about it, which are also ramping up, the phone may indeed be ready for prime time, and just waiting for Samsung execs to take centerstage in a few weeks, and take it out of their pockets for the world to see for the first time.

Well, it might not be exactly the first time, as many a graphics designer have already tried their imagination chops, and, based on leaked case maker blueprints and rumored design peculiarities, have made concept renders and even videos depicting what the Galaxy S7 should look like. The latest in this series is a video made by artist Jermaine Smit, which fleshes out the latest in Galaxy S7 knowledge so far. It showcases the alleged Note 5-style body with tapered back, the rumored 12 MP camera module that would eventually be protruding less than on the S6, and the various color combo the phone may come with - check it out below, and tell us what you think.

Looks Exquisite. But nothing new. What's new would be a significantly BIGGER battery. Surprise us with a 4000mAh battery on the S7 Samsung.

I sure hope they've not discarded the IR Blaster like the Note 5...

Why do you like the IR blaster so much? I stopped using it after I found out it can't control my AV receiver.

I bought a Micro USB OTG IR Blaster for my OnePlus One 'cause it's not built-in. I use it to control my Sony theater system, Telus Cable Box, and Samsung TVs in different rooms in my home via the ZaZaRemote app on the play store. Maybe we'll eventually see a USB Type C variant of it that could work with the next gen of devices, but still nothing beats having it built-in.

So beautiful. The person who did this had put a lot of effort in making this. I wish sammy would make a Black GS7 not the "sapphire black" that the S6 has.

My friend at work has the sapphire black Edge+ and when I saw it I said to him that I was unaware of Samsung releasing a blue Edge+. He corrected me and said it was Sapphire Black...sorry but it very much just looks like a really deep blue.

It depends on what angle light strikes the phone. It mostly look black. But in a bright room or under sunlight, it shows the deep blue color.

you are correct in saying that. it took me 130 hours to make it and that's the minimal could be up to 140 hours xD about the black. I agree! normal black would be amazing

Why do I see the same? It looks like all these concepts look the same.

Nice design, but i don't like the color options. What i want: carbon grey (dark grey), titanium silver, electro violet (like sony xperia z1's purple), and pearl pink.

I found the plot thin and predictable, the ending was lackluster. I'll wait for the DVD.

Design is way too repetitive.

I'm quite happy with the design of the Galaxy S6, however I would have preferred an actual black version as the "blue" one looks a bit crap.

I don't mind the glass on the back, glass or metal really doesn't make any difference, glass and metals both scratch.

Also the glass held up very well in drop tests, I've dropped mine a few times from waist height and it's fine, only protected by a very thin case and looks as good as new.

I hope it doesn´t look like that , otherwise it would be a replica of the S6

It looks like Note 5

It would be more similar to Note 5. I personally would rather have an improved user interface and features.

It's not the hardware that concerns me. Sammy knows how to rock a spec sheet. The software though? Ugh.

I don't see much wrong with it. Better usability than stock IMHO, and way more features. And since Marshmallow, it performs as it should too: damn smooth.
