Samsung Galaxy S7 edge appears in silver, looks pretty

This is the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Or at least that's what we think we're looking at, knowing that the image was just posted on Twitter by a trustworthy source – Evan Blass, a.k.a. @evleaks. "Probably yr best bet for a Marshmallow-powered Galaxy," he says in his tweet. "Android Nonpareil might be another story, tho."

Note that Evan does not specifically refer to the handset as the Galaxy S7 edge, but the image pretty much speaks for itself. The curved display is there, obviously. So are the new Galaxy S7 wallpaper and the less rounded home button. Besides, the device looks identical to the alleged Galaxy S7 edge phone unit that was leaked several days ago. 

As for Evan's words, they come in response to a talk about Samsung failing to deliver timely Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates. Indeed, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will run the latest Android release out of the box. Yet who knows how long an update to "Android Nonpareil", which seems to be a reference to the next major Android release, is going to take. On a related note, the actual "sweet" name of the next big Android version isn't known, but Android Nougat is by far our readers' favorite moniker

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are expected to be announced on February 21 in Barcelona, a day before the start of MWC 2016. To catch up on the latest word revolving around them, be sure to read our Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge rumor review.

The S7 Edge just doesn't look as cool as the S6 Edge does. maybe its because, the S7 is using the same look, but it just looks dull in comparison. The S6 Edge still looks so awesome.

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

No, just no! Android buttons layout used to be like this before and most android users are used to it this way. The back button on the right is just perfect since it is the most used button and the majority of people are right-handed.

I think that's exactly why they moved it, in order for it to be something you had to deliberately reach over to hit in order to avoid accidental taps. Samsung's set up is fine, but I'm pretty sure that's the reason they were switched

Hm, iPhone have never looked as good

Yep and the iPhone will never look this good. Though I saw a recent render that if apple did that exact render, I would buy the iPhone just to have that look. In fact I would buy it in all available colors based on a recent render.

All OEMs need to release all colors at the same damn time and stop with carrier branding. Also no color exclusive to Asia.

13. TerryTerius unregistered

Exactly. I severely doubt that releasing colors at different times of the year does much of anything for a sales boost late in a product's lifecycle. If anything, I would think it would energize customers more to have all those options available from the get-go. Apparently OEM's believe Asians are the only people on earth that like colors outside of white, black/gray, and gold. Even if they don't sell as much as their monochrome counterparts, I don't see what I could hurt to have some kind of stock of alternative colors available for purchase I certainly know I would have loved that emerald green S6 Edge or titanium silver note 5.

I agree. I surely wanted the Gold Note at first until I finally saw it, but that Titanium silver is immaculate. At least for the USA, the Black, White, Gold and Silver should all be released at the same time. Or at least within a couple weeks.

I wanted silver note as well, it looked so good, settled for black note 5 instead which I broke and got white one from Samsung.

I started with the White Note 5. After getting it I thought it was God ugly vs other Note's I had in White. So I exchanged it also for the Blue/Black. White use to be a cool phone color and to be honest no phone has looked as good with white than the iPhone IMO. The white S3, S4 and S5 were ok, especially with the S5 since you could use a different colored back (White/Gold is perfect), but latest models the white is too much white. I would prefer a 2 tones design much like how the iPhone 5S is. Make the front white, make the back something slightly darker like silver or gold and the sides to match the back or make it metallic/chrome. Grey to me is an ugly color, but silver or titanium is cool. The natural color of aluminum is also OK. The S6 Edge models were beautiful in Gold and Titanium. The white and blacks are not so nice looking and would look better with a dual color design.

That grey silver not preaty for me. And the black back I can't tell if it's glass or plastic

I love piano black but that looks pretty smudgy. I hope that Samsung will come up with more variations for the adhesive behind the glass

I mean not rare and more expensive. It's just an adhesive
