Recently, we came across leaked press renders that allegedly show the front of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Now, new renders have surfaced that show the backs of the two said devices.
Evan Blass (popularly known as @evleaks on Twitter and the same person who leaked the front renders) is responsible for this latest leak. They show the rear of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, showing the devices’ logos, rear-facing cameras, flash, and sensors. Again, these renders suggest that Samsung did little to redesign the two, meaning they look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
Here’s what we know so far:
Past reports have revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will sport a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is said to sport a larger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The S7’s CPU will vary depending on the region. Units headed to the US and China will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while international markets such as the UK will feature Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC. 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. In the photography department, word on the street is the S7 will feature Samsung’s new 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera that is said to be more ideal in snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions. Despite the lower megapixel count, this larger 12-megapixel sensor is said to be an upgrade of the 16-megapixel snapper on board the Galaxy S6. The S7’s front-facing camera is said to be a 5-megapixel snapper. Unlike their predecessors The S7 and the S7 Edge are expected to feature microSD card slots for additional storage options. The two are said to be IP67-certified, meaning they will be dust- and water-resistant. This feature was not on board the S6 and S6 Edge. Lastly, the two are also said to feature a reversible USB Type-C port.
Samsung is scheduled to host its Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona, Spain on the 21st of February. It says that “The Next Galaxy” will make its official debut at the event, and we’re betting Samsung was referring to the Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
