Render pictures of the shiny Samsung Galaxy S7: the best ones and the alleged real thing

The launch of Samsung's Galaxy S7 is drawing near. While the company itself hasn't said anything official yet, common sense dictates that it will want to debut its new flagship on the annual Mobile World Congress superevent, which will be happening between the 22nd and 25th of February. Many reports have confirmed this, including an alleged Samsung poster leak, which specifically points at the 21st of February as the day that we will see #TheNextGalaxy.

Of course, as you can expect for such a high-profile handset, there have been a lot of concept renders made by fans and artists — some based on actual leaked information, others representing a realistic evolution of Samsung's design language, and some just being a bit off-the-wall — and, naturally, some leaks of the actual real thing, be it in the forms of schematics or in-house renders.

The real thing?

If you've been following the recent Galaxy S7 news, you've probably seen the alleged Samsung-made images of what the smartphone will actually look like. According to latest information, Sammy will launch two devices – "regular" Galaxy S7 with a 5.1" display, and a Galaxy S7 edge with a 5.5" display. It seems earlier reports that suggested there will be a Galaxy S7 Plus and Galaxy S7 edge Plus were either wrong, or the devices will be postponed for later this year. And that makes sense – if Sammy chose to launch 4 high-end handsets at the same time, that'd be just a bit overkill.

The most trust-worthy reports we've seen about the handset show us that, design-wise, the Galaxy S7 isn't much different from its predecessor. It has an extra curve here and there, and the camera hump has been reduced to become almost flush with the smartphone's back, but it's mostly the same device, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, as the Galaxy S6 is certainly a beautiful piece of tech. So, without further ado, here are the alleged renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge:

Realistic concept renders, based on design leaks

Artist Jermaine Smit is famous for his high-quality concept renders of big-name flagships. He followed the Galaxy S7 leaks and rumors and kept updating his rendition of what the device might look like accordingly. As a result, we have a set of beautiful Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge renders, which are probably the closest we will get to having a look at Sammy's actual new flagships before the actual unveiling date. Check them out below:

What other artists imagined

So, we do have some certainty about the Galaxy S7's looks. But a few artists did prefer to imagine an evolution of Samsung's design language and create some different concept models. A couple of these, we've listed below. The first Galaxy is the work of Mr. Hasan Kaymak, and while it's just a bit off-the-wall, it certainly has an elegant charm to it. The second one is imagined by a Martin Hajek and has a dual-camera setup on its back, glowing auras around its navigation keys, and the choice of what seems to be a leather finish – cool! You can check them out for your viewing pleasure in the slideshow below, but keep in mind – it is highly improbable that the Galaxy S7 will look like these.

Why do you need renders? The design is exactly the same as the Galaxy S6.

It's more like a downsized note 5(the curved back).

No it isn't. Its not exactly the same. This is Samsung, not those other guys. Samsung has never released the exact same device 2 years in a row...EVER. I only know of 2 OEM's that do. But I won't mention any names.

You are such an idiot, and I'm sick of your shit. He's not saying spec for spec they are the exact same you moron...he's saying the device's design did not change enough to notice material differences at a first glance. And moron, Samsung has most definitely released devices that look almost identical to the previous generation.

I 1,000,000% agree with your comment. Every single word, especially the first five.

They definitely have their own design language and this looks close to the S6. Looks like the camera hump has been decrease which looks nicer. I like to see what the Note 6 brings this year but don't know if I'll be purchasing a smart phone this year.

I think he got the thinness of the phone wrong. It is supposed to be thicker than that, hence the less protruding camera.also, the top of the handset is rumored to be kinda curved wich we don't see here. However, his renders look stunning, extremely well designed and very realistic.

Hope the Gorilla Glass is less slippery and fingerprint magnet.

Glass can't hide fingerprints. Oh, and don't you use cases? When I am out I use my flip-case or my back cover. But at home, I take them off so I can feel that cold cool glory of such a nice design.

Because everyone conforms to the ideas of a senseless, rambling moron such as yourself. Not everyone wants a case. I have a 6P and enjoy not having any fingerprints, you idiotic Samsung apologist.

except for all over the camera and that massive hunched area and cheap bendable aluminum

Looks great but I'm still holding a grudge since they will only offer the Edge in super sized format. Fingers crossed for a smaller version than 5.5 because I'm sick of large phones! I'm buying it on release day if they offer a S7 sized version but will stick with my 6+ if not and wait for the iP7.

16. fyah_king unregistered

5.5in is still a small phone, unless you have that iphone 6s plus. Which is big for being only

'Small', sure thing.

I like how the S7 takes on the look of the Note 5. For the Edge model, I would like to have seen the edge on the front and back and they meet in the middle, so the device is sorta oval and round the edges, as they were fairly sharp on the previous models and was uncomfortable to hold. Though I love how it felt in my hands. I wish they would use a durable material, that would give the phone a metallic appearance and cold feeling, without using actual aluminum.

I hope it has MicroSD card support. That was the only thing that hindered the Galaxy S6

5th, 7th and 8th concepts by Martin Hajek are the best of the lot
