Recently, we came across what was claimed to be a schematic that showed the 5.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 and the 5.5-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Now, a new schematic allegedly shows the rumoured and massive Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus?
Similar to what we’ve recently seen with the past schematic, this newly leaked schematic, which allegedly comes from case maker ITSKINS and leaked by GSMArena, also claims to show us what the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus will look like. It also shows that Samsung did not completely redesign the S7 Plus. It looks exactly like the S6, but features a rectangular home button unlike the rounded home button of the S6.
There is, however, conflicting information with the S7 in the first schematic and this new one. In the first schematic, the S7 is said to feature a 5.2-inch screen. In this new schematic, the S7 is said to feature a 5.1-inch screen. Everything else is consistent, such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge featuring a 5.5-inch screen. Lastly, the new schematic echoes what we’ve heard in the past, claiming the Galaxy S7 Plus will feature a 6-inch screen.
The schematic also goes against what leak master Evan Blass (also known as @evleaks on Twitter) has leaked back in December. Blass leaked a list that showed four versions of the Galaxy S7 – not three. These include the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S7 Edge, the Galaxy S7 Plus, and the Galaxy S7 Edge Plus. This newly leaked schematic suggests that there will only be three versions – the smaller Galaxy S7, the mid-sized Galaxy S7 Edge, and the massive Galaxy S7 Plus.
So far, we’ve learned that the S7 will feature a reversible USB Type-C port that allows for faster data transfer and charging. The S7 is said to feature a new camera that is more ideal for snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions. We’ve also learned that the S7 will feature two different processors, depending on the market. The international version (version for the UK and everywhere else) is said to feature the Exynos 8890 SoC, while the US and Chinese versions are said to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood. Both processors have done well in a variety of benchmark tests. These processors are produce a tremendous amount of horsepower, but also emit a lot of heat. To solve this overheating issue, Samsung is said to be testing various internal heat pipes. Lastly, a recent report claimed that the S7 will feature an iris scanner.
