Galaxy S7 CAD-based renders reiterate a thicker, more rectangular design, and a tapered back

tip from such a second tier case maker not long ago pegged its dimensions as 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm, or about as large as the S6, but now the phone is pictured to be slightly shorter and narrower, yet thicker. The new numbers actually give a more credible nuance to the latest rumor that the phone will be slightly chubbier than the S6, but host a larger battery, and take design cues from the Note 5, introducing a more rectangular chassis, and tapered rear edges. In fact, we recently had a tip that sent us the alleged front panel of the device, which reiterates the more rectangular design suggested here as well.At first, a
The Note 5 resemblance would be a good feat, as Samsung's current top phone is a champion in the screen-to-body ratio department at its respective display size, so hopefully this could be replicated with the S7 as well. Whatever the story turns out to be in the end, check out these new Galaxy S7 renders here, and tell us what you think about them.

Exactly my reaction. Looks quite unattractive. Even Note 5 looks better than this one. It will be a really tough year for Samsung.

Danie P! You say the Note5 is champion in the screen-to-body departement. FYI, Note5's screen-to-body ratio is 75.9% (same as the LG G2). But Huawei's Ascend Mate7 rocks a 77.6% screen-to-body ratio! http://m.gsmarena.com/huawei_a
Please, try make PA being more credible.

Not a fan of the design, but besides that I'm sure it'll be a good phone.

Samsung is trying to play a very dangerous game and I also see them trying to pull an iPhone 'S' alliteration. This would be nothing else but the end for Samsung if the S7 turns out to be true

I like the feel of the Note 5 curved back so that is a nice change to make on the S7. I see no reason to make further design changes for the sake of change when they finally have the "nicest" design on the market. (according to some of us). I still don't believe they're going with the old USB port though.

Damn these renders are making me want one! I have a 6p but the bells and whistles of Samsung and their accessories are alluring

This reaction is normal but I don't think this is an apple "S" move on samsungs part simply because the back still looks different from the previous s6. At least people can be able to tell the difference unlike Apple the only difference is the 'S' at the back of the S model. An improved software, better camera and better storage options plus good battery life will make this phone a good buy. That's what matters.

So first Samsung decided to follow apple in using premium materials for their flagships and it turned out well and now it seems they are wanting to follow able in its 'S' alliteration.

If this turns out to be the real deal I AM BUYING IT IN A HEARTBEAT! I loved the S6 but the small battery was a huge deal breaker. Fast charging is NOT the solution, good battery life is! The phone looks stunning and still will be packing some serious awesomeness.

Woah, thicker, shorter, and narrower? That's not right. Bet it's going to have more features people want too. Don't they know how this is supposed to go? They're supposed to make it wider, taller, and thinner. Remove battery capacity in the name of "increased efficiency" and add a few features absolutely no one cares about to try and make up for the features they removed.
