CAD drawings leak new Samsung Galaxy S7 dimensions
It seems Samsung is having problems keep the lid on its next flagship, as information on the Samsung Galaxy S7 has been leaked left and right online. Today’s leak is no different, as alleged CAD drawings of the device have popped up.
The CAD drawings and video seen above come to us courtesy of uSwitch and OnLeaks, which are said to be based on the latest rumours. The renders are said to have been obtained from a case maker. As we all know, case makers get schematics of unannounced devices before their unveiling, ensuring their cases fit like a glove.
The drawings also have something new to share. They reveal that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will measure 142.5 x 69.5 x 7.9 – 8.7 mm, which is shorter, narrower, but thicker than the Samsung Galaxy S6. Previous reports claimed that the S7 would measure 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm, a round the same size as its predecessor. These new measurements make more sense to us since the S7 is rumoured to feature a more massive battery at 3,000 mAh (the S6 features a 2,550 mAh battery).
To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is rumoured to feature two different processors, depending on the market. Markets such as the US and China will get the version with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC on board, while the international version (version headed to the UK) will feature the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood. It is said to rock 4 GB of RAM. The S7 is expected to be available in four screen sizes. These include a 5.2-inch flat version (Samsung Galaxy S7), a 5.5-inch curved version (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge), a 6-inch flat version (Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus), and a 5.7-inch curved version (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus). In the photography department, a larger 12-megapixel sensor that is more ideal for snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video chat are expected to be on board. The S7 is said to feature a microSD card slot. To keep the lights on, the Galaxy S7 is said to feature a 3,000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S7 Edge is expected to 3,600 mAh battery. An iris and fingerprint scanner are said to be on board. It is said to be IP67-certified, meaning the device will be water- and dust-resistant. In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy S7 is said to look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 with its less rounded corners.
Samsung is expected to lift the lid on only the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge on the 21st of February and launch its next flagship in mid-March.
