Galaxy S7 renders suggest Samsung is barely changing anything on the outside, 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...

Wel they never got rid of the large HTC branded bezel! It's basically all they need to do!

Apple does it. On top of that, what do you expect them to change? Make it a circle? There is a limit to the things you can change. There are people who would buy a circle phone but that is a very, very, very small fraction of the market. They have to focus on the "regular customers".

I don't like the front of Samsung phones. I think they need to get rid of the logo and change the speaker grill and the outline of the home button to black. They also need to get rid of the chrome outline around the camera module.

You are sick with the Samsung logo. They have to put the logo of their brand at the front of the phones of them. And their logo is beautiful. Stop complaining with that stubbornness.

It depends on what others are doing. Since flagship phones have similar specs design language and software implementation are the big differentiators. I think HTC is going to make some radical design changes to the M line that may put them back in the game. If they design the phone similar to the render Evan Blass posted last year I'd be very interested in the phone. I also want to see what LG is up to.

Sticking with the S6 design iss not a mistake, making edge variant bigger - is.

Not really, especially if they release a S7 Edge+ with 6" screen and 4k AMOLED. Imagine the Gear VR with that...

Only when apple does it, it's a problem for people here. Samsung can do the exact same thing that Apple does and it gets labelled as innovation by people here. Non removable storage and battery were the number one thing Samsung fans mocked, than all of a sudden non removable storage was great after Samsung did it. And now it's the design, Samsung keeping it the same is great yea?

They've changed it constantly with a HUGE design change for the s6 and note 5 variants. Now they might not do it once and it's a mistake? Yet when Apple hasn't changed diddly on years on the iPhone its "innovative" ? Lmfao get real

I think the only problem people have with the design language is that it causes the phone to have a smaller, non-removable battery.

S6/S6 Edge are beautiful devices. The design is fine.
