Samsung Galaxy S7 front panel leaks; compare it to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 panels
The other day, we showed you images of what allegedly was the front panel of the Samsung Galaxy S7. Some of the sensors on the front of the handset appeared to be on the opposite side of where they were placed on earlier leaks, which raised a red flag. The cutout for the home button does seem wide enough to accommodate the larger rectangular button that was seen in earlier images of the phone.

Tonight, one of our loyal readers sent us images of what he says is the front panel of the Samsung Galaxy S7, compared to the front panels of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. We can see a big difference between the previous leak, and this one. The new image has some of the sensors on the front of the Galaxy S7 on the left side. The screen appears to be bigger than the one on the Galaxy S6, with corners that are more squared-off. The bezels are slightly thinner, but the home button remains the same size.

Comparing the leaked Galaxy S7 front panel with one belonging to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, you can see that the Samsung Galaxy S7 panel looks very much like a smaller version of the latest iteration of Sammy's high-end phablet.

We expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S7 introduced on February 21st at the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event. That is the day before the Mobile World Congress 2016 kicks off in Barcelona. We expect the phone to come with a 5.2-inch screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC will be under the hood, with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM will be inside.


Thanks for the tip!
