Samsung Galaxy S7 front panel, front-facing camera both surface in leaked photos?
Just yesterday, we passed along a tweet sent out by famed tipster Evan Blass. According to the message disseminated by Blass, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be released on March 11th. Considering that we expect the model to be unveiled on February 21st at the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event, this is a perfectly plausible launch date for the phone. Actually, we should say 'phones' since the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is expected to be launched on the very same day as its sibling is.

Today, a couple of interesting photos have leaked out. The first one claims to show the front panel of the Samsung Galaxy S7. The familiar Samsung logo has been covered up, the home button is a bit crooked, and the bezels appear to be too big. According to one report published today, the large bezels are merely a disguise, covering up the real look of the flagship.

Another photo shows some front-facing camera modules with the model number SM-G930F stamped on top. The SM-G930 is believed to be the model number of the Galaxy S7 with the "F" indicating the designation of a specific country or region. There does seem to be a change from the front-facing snapper used on the Samsung Galaxy S6. While the Galaxy S6 camera has the connector dead-center, the Galaxy S7's front-facing camera module has a connector that is offset to the left. It probably doesn't mean much in the overall scheme of things. Perhaps it is being done to add some room to the phone so that a larger capacity power plant can be installed. Anything we say would really just be a guess at this point.

We should know all on February 21st, which will be here before you know it.
