Check out the back press renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

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.

Back renders

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.

Samsung Galaxy S7 said to feature less-visible camera hump

Past reports claimed that the camera hump on board the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be non-existent in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, meaning the camera of the S7 and S7 Edge will be flush with the devices’ rear surface. A new tweet claims that there will still be a camera hump, but it won’t be as noticeable as before.

The diagram above was leaked by Steve Hemmerstoffer on Twitter. The image compares the camera hump of the Samsung Galaxy S7 to that on the Samsung Galaxy S6, revealing that the camera on board the Galaxy S7 will add an insignificant 0.8 mm to the thickness of the device, compared to the rather significant 1.7 mm camera hump of the Galaxy S6.

According to past reports, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). In the camera department, a new 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera that is said to be more ideal in snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat is expected to be on board. Despite the lower megapixel count, this larger 12-megapixel sensor is expected to be an upgrade of the 16-megapixel snapper of the Galaxy S6. The two are also said to feature a reversible USB Type-C port, which means faster charging, faster data charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the connector the wrong way ever again. The S7 and the S7 Edge are said to feature microSD card slots and IP67 certifications, which were not on board their predecessors. Under the hood is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC for markets such as the US and China, and a Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC for international markets (including the UK). 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will make their official debut on the 21st of February at its Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona, Spain.

Check out Samsung’s “The Next Galaxy” video

Not long ago, serial leakster Evan Blass leaked what is claimed to be press renders of the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Now, the Korean tech giant has released a new video trailer that teases “The Next Galaxy.”

“The Next Galaxy” video teaser

The video doesn’t show us the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, nor does it tease the devices’ design or feature. What it does mention is the date Samsung is planning to lift the lid on its next flagship. It lets us know that we’ll see the two on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain.

Here’s the video:

Here’s what we know so far:

The 21st of February is a few weeks away, but, if you can’t wait for Samsung’s official announcement, we’ve gathered a lot of information about the unannounced devices via past rumours. Judging from the devices’ leaked press renders, we can see that the two look a lot like their predecessors. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to sport a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, on the other hand, is expected to sport a bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC (US and China) and a Samsung Exynos 8890 SoC for international markets (including the UK). 4 GB of RAM is expected to be on board. In the photography department, the device is expected to feature Samsung’s new 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera (although it offers a smaller megapixel count, it is said to be an upgrade to the 16-megapixel camera on board the Galaxy S6) that is more ideal in snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a ever-familiar 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. Unlike its predecessors, the S7 and the S7 Edge are said to feature microSD card slots and IP67 certifications, meaning they will be dust and water proof. The two are also said to feature a reversible USB Type-C port, which means faster charging, faster data charging, and never having to worry about plugging in the connector the wrong way ever again.

Case makers have been known to create accurate renders of unannounced devices sporting their cases. These renders are likely based on leaked CAD renders that leaked in the past. If the CAD renders show the real deal, the renders above should show what the Samsung Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus actually look like.

We’ve learned from previous rumours that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to feature a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is said to feature a larger 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus is expected to feature an even larger 6-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). If you were disappointed that the S6 and S6 Edge did not come with IP67 certification, you’ll be happy to know that the S7 is rumoured to be dust and water proof. Bummed the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge did not feature a microSD card slot? If so, you’ll be happy to know that the S7 series is expected to feature the said feature. Its camera combo is said to consist of a new and larger 12-megapixel rear-facing camera that is more ideal in for snapping photos and recording videos in low-light conditions and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. The S7 is said to rock two different CPUs, depending on the region. US and Chinese versions are said to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the international version is expected to feature the Exynos 8890 SoC under the hood. The S7 is expected to rock 4 GB of RAM.

Samsung is expected to officially announce their next flagship on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain and launch the devices in the 11th of March.
