Galaxy S7 renders suggest Samsung is barely changing anything on the outside, is it a mistake?
At the end of last week, leakster legend Evan Blass (or evleaks as he's more commonly known) delivered once again: seemingly official renders of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. While there's no way for us to confirm their authenticity, Blass' track record speaks for itself, and the renders tie in nicely with what we know. Namely: little to no changes to be observed from the outside.

That's not entirely surprising. When Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 at MWC last year, we had no qualms about calling it the best-looking Galaxy S series phone yet. Especially when put next to the disappointing Galaxy S5. Still, not all is peachy, with the fingerprint magnet of a back being a top concern. While the renders in question don't actually offer a peek from behind, the front seems pretty much unchanged. The only differences we can make out are the (seemingly) thinner bezels on the sides, and the slightly larger physical home button. Everything else appears to be identical.

Most people will agree that Samsung made a step forward with the design of the Galaxy S6, and so following up on it with the Galaxy S7 isn't exactly a bad thing. But with the South Korean giant struggling to keep up with shareholders' expectations, some of you may have been hoping for a bolder approach. If these renders prove legit, would you think it's a mistake on Samsung's part to stick to the design language established with the Galaxy S6 family?

Is sticking with the Galaxy S6 design language for the Galaxy S7 a mistake?
