Recently, alleged renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 leaked online. Now, photos that allegedly show the Korean tech giant’s next flagship’s chassis have surfaced.

The photos above were leaked on Chinese-speaking micro-blogging site Weibo. The photos, if genuine, confirm previous reports that claim the Samsung Galaxy S7 will not be redesigned from the ground up. Instead, it will look a lot like its predecessor the Samsung Galaxy S6. Past leaked renders have revealed that the only noticeable difference between the two is the rectangular home button on board the Galaxy S7. The S6 features a rounded home button.
Here’s what we’ve learned so far:
Leaked dimensions reveal that the regular Samsung Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch screen, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus will feature a 6-inch screen. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is likely to feature a 5.1-inch curved screen. It’s still a mystery whether the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus will feature a previously reported 5.7-inch curved screen or a 6-inch curved screen, the same size as the S7 Plus. The S7’s rear-facing camera is said to be a new 20-megapixel sensor that is better at snapping photos in low light conditions. There are said to be two versions of the S7, when processors come to mind. One version will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC (US and China), while the other is said to rock Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC (international markets such as the UK). The S7 is expected to feature 4 GB of RAM. A microSD card slot is said to be on board for additional storage options. For better heat management, Samsung is said to be testing a variety of heat pipes. A USB Type-C connector is said to be on board. Like the S6, the S7 is also expected to feature a fingerprint sensor.
Of course, since we cant verify if the photos show the real deal, take these photos with a pinch of salt.
Samsung is expected to officially unveil its next flagship on the 21st of February in Barcelona, Spain, a day before MWC 2016.
