The Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and their LED View Cover cases have recently been spotted getting certified by the US FCC and Indonesia’s Postel. The listings show unannounced devices with model numbers “SM-G930” and “SM-G935,” which are believed to belong to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge respectively. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge bear the model numbers “SM-G920″ and SM-G925” respectively.

According to past rumours that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen. As for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, past reports claimed that the device would feature a 5.5-inch screen, while a more recent report claimed that the device would feature a 5.1-inch curved screen. We’ve also recently learned that the two could be water proof, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. In the photography department, some reports claim that the S7 will feature Samsung’s new larger 12-megapixel sensor than the 16-megapixel sensor on board the Galaxy S6, while some reports claim that the S7 will feature Samsung’s new 20-megapixel BRITECELL sensor. The two are said to be more ideal in low-light conditions. Its front-facing camera is expected to be a 5-megapixel snapper. As far as design goes, the S7 will look a lot like its predecessor. Unlike the S6, the S7 is said to have a microSD card slot on board. Under the hood is expected to be two different processors, depending on the market. The US- and China-bound Galaxy S7 is expected to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while units of international markets such as the UK are expected to rock Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC. Both CPUs have allegedly done exceptionally well in various benchmark tests.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut at Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event, which kicks off on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain. The two are also said to be released on the same month.

Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, and S7 Edge Plus to make official debut in February?

According a past reports, only the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will make their official debut in February. A new tweet, however, suggests that not two will be unveiled by three.

Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus to be announced next month?

Evan Blass who goes by the name of @evleaks on Twitter is responsible for leaking accurate information on yet to be announced devices. In his latest tweet, the leak master posted an image that shows the logos: “Samsung Galaxy S7,” “Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge,” and “Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus.”

According to past reports, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen. As for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, past reports claimed that the device would feature a 5.5-inch screen, while a more recent report claimed that the device would feature a 5.1-inch curved screen. The screen size of the curved Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus still remains a mystery. There is another version of the S7 not mentioned in the list – the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus. The device is said to feature a 6-inch flat screen.

The Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus logos, are not the only clues dropped by the image. It also seems to show tiny water drops, which lines up with past reports that claim Samsung’s next flagship could be water resistant.

Sure, there’s no way of telling whether the image comes from Samsung or if it was Photoshopped. However, like most of the leaks by Blass, there is a huge possibility that image is genuine.

Past rumours have revealed that the Galaxy S7 will feature a microSD card slot unlike its predecessor. In the photography department, some reports claim that the S7 will feature Samsung’s new larger 12-megapixel sensor than the 16-megapixel sensor on board the Galaxy S6, while some reports claim that the S7 will feature Samsung’s new 20-megapixel BRITECELL sensor. Both are said to be function better in low-light conditions. The Galaxy S7 headed to the US and China are said to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the international version (version headed to the UK) is said to feature Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC.

AnTuTu listing reveals Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to feature 5.1-inch screen and 12-megapixel camera

Past reports have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a flat 5.2-inch screen, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a curved 5.5-inch screen. This is different from the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, which both sport 5.1-inch screens. A new listing on AnTuTu (first spotted on Chinese-speaking Weibo by French-speaking @NoWhereElseFR and renowned Samsung insider SamMobile) reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a 5.1-inch screen.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with 5.1-inch screen and 12-megapixel camera?

Shown above is a screenshot from the AnTuTu benchmark site. It shows the unannounced “SM-G935A,” which is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This version features a 5.1-inch screen (not a 5.5-inch screen) and is headed to US carrier AT&T.

Although a smaller screen that the previously rumoured 5.5-inch screen, the resolution is the same at 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The listing also reveals that the device rocks a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with an Adreno GPU under the hood, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. This isn’t surprising as the US and Chinese version is expected to feature the Snapdragon 820 CPU. The international version (version headed to the UK) is expected to feature the Samsung-made Exynos 8890 SoC.

Additionally, the listing reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge features a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera. This mirrors what we’ve been hearing in the past few months. Although this new sensor has a smaller megapixel count than the 16-megapixel sensor on board the Galaxy S6, is a 1/2″ sensor, which is a larger sensor S6’s camera. It is believed to be more ideal in low-light conditions.

Other rumours claim that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a new Samsung-made 20-megapixel RGBW-pixel Britecell camera. This new sensor is equally interesting as it is also said to come with improved light sensitivityand signal-to-noise ratio, thanks to the new RGBW pixel pattern.

Like any rumour, take this with a pinch of salt.

Only the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge are expected to make their official debut in Barcelona, Spain on the 21st of February. It is yet to be determined when the larger Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus will be officially unveiled.

Rumour: Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge pricing, microSD card slot, and screen sizes allegedly confirmed

These days, the internet is filled with leaked information about the yet to be announced Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This day is no exception, as new report re-confirms what we’ve been hearing in the past, plus a few more new details about two of the most hotly-anticipated devices of this year.

Pricing, microSD card slot, and screen sizes

Samsung-Galaxy-S7-edge-dimensions

This new report comes from SamMobile, a highly reputable site that is renowned for leaking accurate information on anything Samsung-related. According to its “source inside the supply chain,” a few of the things we’ve been hearing online are accurate.

One is a microSD card slot. To everyone’s delight (including ours) the source re-confirms that both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will allow users to make use of a microSD card, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge that didn’t come with the feature.

The source also re-confirms screen sizes. According to him (or her) the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will rock a larger 5.5-inch screen.This lines up with leaked schematics and panels of the two devices.

Here’s where it gets interesting. According to the source, the 32 GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 will cost €699 (around £525), while the 32 GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will set buyers back €799 (around £600). As for the 64 GB versions of the two, the source says that the two will be anywhere from €70 (around £52) to €80 (around  to £60) more expensive than their 32 GB counterparts.

Wait! There’s more. We know that Samsung is planing to lift the lid on its next flagship on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain. However, the question is, when will the two be available in stores? Earlier reports claimed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge would be available in the same month they make their official debut. Recent reports claimed that the two would launch in mid-March. According to the source, the two will be available in February – the same month they make their official debut. This would mean that the S7 and S7 Edge would be available less than a year after the S6 and S6 Edge were launched (April of last year).

Of course, since Samsung is yet to officially unveil the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, take this information with a pinch of salt.

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.

New dimensions?

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.
