Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge dimensions allegedly revealed by leaked schematic


Earlier today, a report from South Korea claimed that there will be just two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7: a standard 5.2-inch version and a curved-edge 5.5-inch variant. Just hours later, an alleged leaked schematic found its way online claiming to show the exact dimensions of both versions of the phone.

Before we dive into the details, please bear in mind that the accuracy of this schematic cannot be verified. As such, make sure to digest this info with an unusually large dose of the proverbial grain of salt.

According to the leaked schematic, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will have the same width and height (70.5 x 143mm) as the current-gen Galaxy S6. This is interesting given that the Galaxy S7 is said to feature a 5.2-inch display, up from 5.1 inches on the Galaxy S6. At these dimensions, and considering a 5.2-inch display running at the standard 16:9 aspect ratio, the Galaxy S7 would have a screen-to-body ratio of 73.94%. For refference, the Galaxy S6 has a screen-to-body ratio of 70.7%.

Moving to the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, the leaked schematic claims that the phone will measure 151mm in height and 73mm in height. Equipped with a 5.5-inch 16:9 screen, the Galaxy S7 edge would have a screen-to-body ratio of 76.62, identical to that of both the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5.

Another detail that this schematic claims to reveal is that the Galaxy S7 will come with a curved back in an attempt to improve ergomomics. The Galaxy S7 edge, on the other hand, is depicted with a flat back, which makes sense given the curved display on the front.

Was hoping for a different design this time. If this turns out to be true I am buying G5 this time.

It's honestly looking great. I just hope they can finally fix touchwiz lag.

Maybe you were lucky or you just aren't as sensitive to lag. See link below: http://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-note-5/571498-galaxy-note-5-lag.html While using the latest Galaxy devices, I still feel hints of lag. I hope this is corrected so I can finally switch back from my Nexus devices, which are the most lag free smartphones out there.

Nice. 2 people out of millions of individuals. More people complaining about lag:http://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-s6-edge/558487-getting-frustrated-s6-edge-poor-performance.html I have no problem with you saying there is no lag on your device, but let's not act as if the problem doesn't exist. Lag is the reason I returned my s6 edge

If you actually read the comments in this thread you posted, it's just a bunch of people who don't know how Android works. For example, they talk about lag when loading web pages. How Android works is, the web browser is set up to load the image as your scrolling closer to it. This creates a hiccup. This has nothing to do with touchwiz. But some people think its lag. Another thing is when they are first set up the phone it requires some time for their background services to sync with the cloud, unpack files, or scan through your media. Maybe it's downloading their cloud images. But for the first day you have the phone you will have some lag due to background service pulling a tremendous amount of data. Once again, it's people who don't understand technology commenting that the are experiencing lag, when in actuality it's just people who don't understand how Android works commenting that they are experiencing lag. And another example is when people say they experience lag when the are scrolling through their apps. It's because they don't understand that each of those icons actually take a tremendous amount of RAM in your memory. It takes a lot more than what the compressed size of a PNG is. Sometimes it's in megabytes. And when they have a lot of apps installed and the are not in folders it takes a lot of RAM and this will create hiccups when you scroll through a lot of apps in your appdrawer. The nontech savvy people start saying stuff like you should get apex or nova launcher. Of course those solutions will work because apex and Nova Launcher doesn't enable things like shadows and memory hogging widgets which makes the launcher run smoother. But the real problem is people that don't understand how Android works make these ridiculous comments saying how TouchWiz is the source of all lag when in actuality its just how Android is programmed. Samsungphanboy you are one of these people. You might love Samsung but you really should not involve yourself as any kind of expert in these kind of discussions. You are a loud voice with a novice level understanding.

Um...you wrote all this thinking you have a great understanding of people's view of lag. But I can also confirm that my Samsung phone lags on the home screen. You can call it whatever you'd like to make yourself feel better, but my wife's iPhone does not lag nearly as often, nor does old Nexus 6 phablet. The end product of what you explained is lag. Whether it's a hiccup, stutter, pause, or delay, the term lag is used nowadays to be synonymous with any of said terms. So while you're so busy trying to get on SamsungPhanboy and what category of people he fits in, you don't realize your own. Yours is throwing any excuse in the book to make sure your precious Android phone remains perfect, when you don't even understand most people that truly critique Android phones are people that own them.

Its funny that the in the link that you posted, most people are actually praising how smooth the Note5 is. Having said that, I own a Galaxy S6, an iPad Air and a Windows PC. There is not one device that doesn't lag. Its just that the previous generations of Samsung phones were plagued by lagging issues as soon as the devices were more than a few months old. The S6 however is miles ahead in that respect and barely has any issues.

This WAS the Dumbest COPY/PASTE comment of 2015, in my book! I clicked on that FORUM and counted 1.5 comments for lag, and 19.5 comments that it has NO LAG... Bad copy/paste to prove yourself. Your "SamsungPhanboy" Avatar Name gives the notion of an impostor. Just my opinion. O.o

I'm very sensitive to lag but i also understand what the device is doing. I read that thread. OP is running third party apps and complaining about lags. Confusing lags from the installed apps with device lag usually seems to be case. Also few others complaining about lag is from the themes (which are mostly user created to begin with) Rest have commented on how smooth it runs.

I hve a note 5 and there is a bit of lag in the UI. Not terrible, but it does lag more than it should at times given its specs.

Note that Samsung changes not just the looks of Android, but right down to it's framework. Since Android is a virtual machine, Samsung's got a hard time to make it's TW run the java code along Android's Virtual Machine. Google is working with Samsung to make TouchWiz run better

The main thing I didn't like about the S6 was its huge bezels, but looks like they're sorting that out.

I am rooting for HTC this year. I feel like I want to try something new, so it's either HTC or I will wait for the iPhone 7.

What do expect? Samsung already changed the design massively this year. A company cannot re-invent the wheel each year. I think that Samsung flagships have never looked better than right now.

Note the curved back of the S7, I would call you a liar if you said you predicted that considering everyone was convinced it was just going to be exactly the same chassis.

Looks promising. If a micro SD card, a 20 MP better camera with least protruding lens, at least 2800mAh battery, butter smooth touchwiz performance and audio improvements are included then S7 will make it to the best flagship for the first half of 2016. Sadly they lost the track with water resistance & dust resistance to be a selling point after S5. Seems iphone 7 will makes these mandatory for others to follow again.

haven't they already mentioned that the s7 will mirror the s6. looks like same dimensions on s6 and s7. it will be the same phone with only the model number being different

I guess years of seeing iPhones do it really trained your eye to notice something similar finally happening with a Samsung phone, huh?
