Samsung Galaxy S7 dummy in shiny gold caught on camera
posted by Paul K. / Feb 10, 2016, 2:49 AM
Just a quick recap before we get to the picture goodness. After many speculations about the possible introduction of four different Galaxy S7 models (the “regular” ones and two “plus” variants on top), the rumor mill has settled down a bit and numerous reports now reaffirm that Samsung will launch only two models – a 5.1-inch “regular” Galaxy S7 and a 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 edge (apparently, there will be no “plus” moniker). Obviously, the devices will come in different finishes, but we've no idea on how many Samsung has decided on. So far, we've seen photos and renders of the new Galaxies in black and silver, with this particular picture showing that the gold finish is going to be an option as well. As a reminder – last year's Sammy flagships came in "White Pearl", "Black Sapphire", "Gold Platinum", and "Silver Titanium". Additionally, the Galaxy S6 had an extra "Blue Topaz" color, while the Galaxy S6 edge came with a unique "Green Emerald" finish.
Now, what we have on the photo below looks more like a realistic dummy, made for case makers and promotional materials, than an actual, functioning smartphone. Still, it looks pretty much like what we would expect the Galaxy S7 to be like, reaffirmed by numerous reports. If you haven't been following closely, you can check out our full rumor review for Samsung's S7 flagships here. Also, yesterday, the alleged stock wallpapers for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge leaked, so be sure to check them out. In the gallery below, we've added the most accurate renders of the new Galaxies we could find on the Web, created in accordance with the latest rumors, just in case you wish to feast your eyes on them.

The looks of it is meh, the bulkout on a camera reminds me of a nipple or something... But i'm very excited for samsung pushing battery life on phones, i hope this makes it so that most people will consider to get a samsung for this reason and will automaticly push other brands to increase their battery life. All these f**king city built phones are pathetic where you have to hug a wall. For someone like myself i carry around a 15600powerbank to a Z3 compact. get over a week of battery on that, i mean i can't fully use most phones to their potential (watching videos, playing games/music) without having the battery collapse way faster then a gameboy did.

Htc's next flagship is ugly. Sony not releasing anything new till later in the year. LG phones are to big. Samsung seem to be the only one bringing out a high spec good looking average size device. I left Samsung after owning the terrible s5 but this year I think I'll be returning to them.

a 5.1-inch “regular” Galaxy S7 and a 5.7-inch Galaxy S7 edge (apparently, there will be no “plus” moniker). 5.5 EDGE not 5.7 EDGE, confirmed already that edge will sport 5.5

Samsung should swap the position of back and multi-tasking buttons so that it becomes consistent with the onscreen android buttons.

Sammy owners prob have become use to it but I do wonder if some find it annoying having to cram ur thumb at very bottom corner with the most used button. Of course this q is for righties.

Booooooring!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Another uncreative upgrade. Endless possibilities in theory, zero novelty in end product.
