Samsung Galaxy S7 front panel leaks; compare it to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 panels

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!

Looks great to me. The only thing they need to fix now is touchwiz.

Well it looks much better than the last leaks. Let's see what the final product turns out to be. Until then I am not going to say anything.

TW in my Note 5 is 50% reduced, the real problem is the Samsung forced s**t apps and 3rd party apps samsung forces on their users, like the Microsoft apps, and that Face book app which is reinstall and automatically update it self even when you disable it, and can only be viewed in the app manager in the form of (com.facebook.system and com.facebook.appmanger) Very fishy and deceiving..

Which manufacturers devices doesn't look the same or have the same design language? Sometimes I wonder if this site is full of smart geeks or just dumb phone lovers pretending to be geeks.

Seriously? The front of all devices have looked the same since, well, forever. A glass slab with a screen, speaker, and front facing camera. Not really much you can do to give the front of a device a complete visual overhaul.

Yes, all the Galaxies carry the same familiar look. No different from other companies who sell a series of phone. Even though they look similar, they don't look exactly alike. The S has had a different model every year. They look significantly different enough to tell them apart. Unlike some brands.

They don't have to change the design, it's their signature design, every manufacturer has one. They just need to keep improving it from an engineering standpoint. Slimmer bezels, different build material, etc.

When you look back at Previous designs, You will know Samsung actualy very creative about designs. Samsung i450, Samsung innov8, Samsung Pixon12 and B&O series. Even Note Edge prototype is very beautiful.

They need to find the right formula & that's it. Why wasting so much resource to develop "creative" designs when their latest design are quite acceptable? Instead they can focus on software side & do incremental design like trimming the bezel or using better material over time like JMartin22 said.

No, i dare to say Samsung was bold when it comes to design. What about edge variant device? aren't they innovative? but it was expensive and some people find it gimmicky (especially on the Note 4 edge which look ridiculous).It was the cost for attempt to be creative, either people will like it or hate it. Samsung was learning by making some mistakes. I'd say S6 edge variant was the most beautiful device for 2015, glass back is no more horrible experience cuz they are sturdier with Gorilla glass 4 compared to iPhone 4/4s (not the best for anyone cause it leave smudges).
