Leaked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge renders seemingly reveal the phones' final design

Leaked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge renders seemingly reveal the phones' final design
Ladies and gentlemen, we now have what might be the very first renders that accurately present Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, both of which will likely be announced next month at MWC 2016 (on February 21, to be exact).

Revealed by @evleaks, the renders seem to be press images that may have originated from Samsung (thus not being fan-made renders). In the past, @evleaks unveiled accurate images of many new smartphones ahead of their official announcements, so we're inclined to believe that the new renders are legit.

As expected, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge don't look too different from last year's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. However, while the Galaxy S7 may keep the same 5.1-inch display of the S6, the Galaxy S7 edge could have a 5.5-inch screen, and its render seems to be supporting this idea.

Minor design changes aside, the Galaxy S7 series should bring significant improvements over the S6 family, including water-resistance, microSD card support, and larger, longer-lasting batteries. Depending on market, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge should be powered by either a Snapdragon 820, or an Exynos 8890 processor. The handsets are expected to have 4GB of RAM, and 12 MP rear cameras with large sensors (these should be better than the 16 MP rear cameras of the S6 family).

Of course, right now, nothing is certain, so we're impatiently waiting for Samsung to finally announce its Galaxy S7 series. What about you?

The front button looks leveled to the rest of the front, except the rim around it. Reminds me SII's. And the line along the metal side is gone. That wallpaper though is so unreal and basic

It is likely to be a dual sim / Micro SD hybrid I don't see them fitting a separate slot somewhere

The bottom bezel is now shorter, that's a good start. Now please, remove the glass back.

Maybe it's just me but I think bezels give the phone character. Just me?

Reasonable amounts of bezel (unlike the iPhone), is one way a smartphone these days can have room for design. It's just we have a few people here who have sick wet dreams about no bezels that they get OCD about a few milometers.

Ok then, It's like LG G4 I always thought it was bland on the front (back totally different).

it's the shape and symmetrical design. iphone design are neat but the bezel are still ovesized, and LG phone doesn't looks as good in landscape even though with minimal bezels.

I love the iPhone designs, but certainly have oversized bezels.

We are forgetting one key design mistake, no USB Type C :(

It may not have an type c port as this will mean they after to offer a new VR headset and this may stop s6 users from upgrading if they just got one. Please also note that I have both a s6 edge plus and a nexus 6p and there is nothing good about USB type c on that phone, and you can only use the one lead , it s a real problem, not 100% on why you need type c on any phone at this time. Type c will only be any good when we get USB 3.1 and only when that happens

I believe it was implied that a type C obviously should have 3.1 otherwise ther's no point really.

If the rumor specs and features are true the only thing that holds this back from being a perfect new phone is the s**tty glass back. Super disappointing they are keeping that.

Yeah. Put something grippy on it like the LG V10 for the back. Dual stereo front speakers too and it will be 10/10.

"Reading the article might help." -PA (Florin T) Don't have to be a jackass about it. Just answer the question. It appears that the PA writers have become more belligerent these days. Might have to do with their inability to write proper English sentences.
