Samsung Galaxy S7 front panel, front-facing camera both surface in leaked photos?

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.

see those bezels, they've got so thin in the current generation that those in the photo almost made me piuk!

Huh? But you need to see the iPhones bezels - you'll "piuk" even harder.

I hope it looks like the s2. I loved that phone. Get rid of the touchwiz lag (not much remains) and I may jump on.

LG G5 will destroy this thing.

Lgg5 with s**tty software and pathetic battery life won't be destroying anything but itself. Dude lg is a joke!

@banglazbless Huh? LG's Optimus UX is s**tty? You seem to ignore that TouchWiz UI is even worse! And who says that LG can't bring back (or improve on) the awesome battery life of the LG G2? If LG is a joke, then Samsung is as much.

u'r talking about 2014 TOUCHWIZ right

2014 Touchwiz was the best UI...

@abdoualgeria And you're talking about 2014 Optimus UX, right? And even so, the 2014 LG UI runs way better than the ones in the S6 and Note5. MEH

Yes, LG was definitely the star of battery life with the G2. I was surprised they let it drop.

Dude lg ui sucks bra! No matter how hard you try telling yourself it's good. The proof is in the pudding and TouchWiz is far more pleasing and functional than that garbage UI from lg.

"TouchWiz is far more PLEASING and functional" That phrase of yours - especially the one I quoted in capital letters - is 100% subjective!!! Try harder.

No need to try, I can beat you with my hands tie behind my back. Anyways! I'm not here to argue. You like lg ui, and i think TouchWiz is far better. Good bye and good riddance.

Display types too are a preference thing. But OLED is becoming the name of the game in flagships. Woah, burn-ins, burn-ins everywhere.

Those top and bottom bezels are out of hand! The LG G5 with its 5.5in screen will prob have smaller dimensions than the S7's 5.1inch monstrosity.

How can can you see the bezels with a case disguising it? The g4 have a 5.5in display and the s6 5.1, do you thing the g4 is smaller than the s6 in dimensions?

But the Galaxy S5 gave 5.1" and the LG G3 gave 5.5", yet both phones were of sane dimensions. So, the G5 could be at same or smaller dimensions than the S7. Leaks sucks though, I wanna see the real stuff when it launches!

20. Hexa-core

... yet both were of *same* dimensions.
