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.
