Samsung Galaxy S7 front panel leaks revealing small design changes?

In addition, the panel shows that the sensors, power button and volume rockers now adorn the right side of the handset. We implore you to view these images with your skeptical eye and take them with a grain of salt, especially since the placement of the sensors on top do not jive with those other previously leaked images that we just cited.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 should be unveiled on February 21st during the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event. This is taking place one day before the MWC expo kicks off in Barcelona. The Galaxy S7 is said to feature a 5.2-inch screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD display. 4GB of RAM will be inside, along with 32GB/64GB of storage. A 20MP camera is expected to grace the back of the phone. The Exynos 8890 SoC will power the model everywhere but in the U.S. and China. In those two countries, the Snapdragon 820 chipset is expected to be under the hood with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU
As we get closer to February 21st, you can expect the number of leaks to grow exponentially. Keep your eyes right here for the latest news and rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and all of its variants.

Let's hope not. The home button looks ugly, and those huge top and bottoms bezels doesn't look any good either.

I wish they would leave the physically home button once for all. Once I got used the on screen button on HTC One M8 I couldn't got used it on the Note Edge again (and I also couldn't got used everything with Touchwizz nightmare , I set every animation to 0, used the nova launcher and try to set and get rid everything could hold the speed back and couldn't have the same UI speed as on the one m8... people say the newer TW is faster... maybe it is)... I also don't like it is like the iPhone a left handed handset with the volume buttons in the left side. I prefer it in the right as many other manufacturer place them for right handed persons. I know it is perfect for you this is just my opinion that's all... (And I know I'm a dreamer but I wish they and everybody else start to have dedicated two stages camera buttons like Sony does ...) I believe they could have a fingerprint scanner without a physically button there sooner or later or the physically button could also work as a capacitive button for home command. So if you need you could wake up the phone with hard push or just use as home button with soft touch. BTW the fact you cannot turn off this "home button wake up the phone" thing is also very annoying for some... pocket waking up issues

Wonder what is the point of squaring off the home button. It looks ugly vs the rounded one. Looks like a step backwards.

I Can Only Think Of 1 Good Reason And That Is To Shorten The Bottom Bezel.

I hate the boring same old iPhone... It hasn't changed since it came out (maybe just getting thinner).... But Samsung is going down the same path and since the galaxy 1 came out, they all have the same design just refining here and there which is annoying. Maybe if they try to risk a different design it will become a game changer!!

Ah! Wish Samsung Make the next Nexus. Basically a Galaxy S7 with STOCK ANDROID and that Bugatti Veyron (or Kawasaki Ninja H2R, if you're a biker like me!) of SoC... THE MIGHTY EXYNOS!!! Will it ever happen? Ah, Nope... (sigh)
