New Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge picture leaks out

The Galaxy S7 is not the only new phone that Samsung will unveil in less than a week: its slightly larger sibling, the rumored 5.5" Galaxy S7 Edge will also make its debut. 

And while both phones are not much of a secret after countless leaked images and rumors, today, we are seeing once again real-world images of the alleged Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

The Galaxy S7 Edge on this picture is in its real-life attire: covered with fingerprint marks and it lacks the clean polish of media images, but what's obvious is that Samsung is indeed using more curved around the edges of the phone that should make it fit more comfortably in the hand. You can also see the larger than before home button. The bigger size should help the phone recognize fingerprints faster and more accurately, as it can read a bigger part of your finger.

The company is also expected to bring a new Gear 360 VR camera. Another interesting detail is that early pre-orders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 (at least in Europe) will get a free Gear VR headset.

Samsung will show both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge on Sunday, February 21st, so make sure to tune to to get a first glimpse of the phones.

I'm pretty sure this thing is going to look stunning in real life. These photos don't show the new top and bottom contours very well. Also, the gold and silver versions will probably be way more eye-catching than the black. Ironically, you can see from the reflection in the second picture that these were taken with the Galaxy S7 Standard version. :o

I always found that Samsung phones looked cheap compared to Apple, HTC or Sony and this new one doesn't seem to change anything about this. It looks as if it will once more attract all the fingerprints on this glossy finish

The S6 Edge + is the best looking and feeling phone on the market. The iPhone looks like something from Walmart.

He obviously doesn't keep up with the smartphone market. I guess he hibernated last year.

Nope. Just yesterday I had an edge+ in my hands. As long as you don't touch it it does indeed look pretty nice. But as soon as it is covered by fingerprints (which is usually the case most of the time), it starts looking like ugly cheap plastic.

I wish I could see if it has the IR blaster like the S6 edge. It was omitted on the edge+ so I've stayed with the regular edge.
