From what we’ve learned so far, Samsung is said to be planning to launch four versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7. These include two flat versions and two curved versions (“Edge” variants). In a more recent report, we came across leaked photos showing what was said to be the front panel of the Samsung Galaxy S7. Now, a new photo is claiming to show a 5.7-inch curved screen that belongs to the rumoured Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus.
Alleged Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus screen
The photo above was first seen on Reddit. The information seen on the alleged screen of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus reveals that the screen will measure 5.7 inches and will have a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). It also seems to be curved just like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
The information on the screen also had more beans to spill. It shows that the version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus shown in the photo is featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC (a new and more powerful quad-core processor with an Adreno 530 GPU to handle graphics), coupled with 4 GB of RAM. This is an indication that this version is the version meant for the US and Chinese market. The international version (version headed to the UK) is expected to feature Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC.
Additionally, the information on the screen reveals that a 5-megapixel front-facing camera will be on board for snapping selfies and video chat. As for its rear-facing camera, a 12-megapixel sensor is listed. This mirrors past reports that claim the Samsung Galaxy S7 will sport a new 12-megapixel camera. Although just 12-megapixels, it is a larger sensor compared to the 16-megapixel sensor on board the Samsung Galaxy S6. A larger sensor means more high-quality images, despite the lower pixel resolution. So, the new 12-megapixel sensor is actually an upgrade of the current 16-megapixel sensor.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.
Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event will take place on the 21st of February, a day before MWC 2016 kicks off in Barcelona, Spain. We’ll find out by then if the rumours are true or not.
