Earlier, we passed along what is believed to be press renders that show the font of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Now, the device’s rear renders have been leaked as well.
The renders seen above were leaked by serial leakster Evan Blass (popularly known as @evleaks on Twitter). They show the rear of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Just like the renders that show the front of the two devices, these renders show that the two will look a like their predecessors.
Here’s what we know so far:
According to past rumours, 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). 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. 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. Unlike their predecessors The S7 and the S7 Edge are expected to feature microSD card slots for additional storage options. Additionally, the two are said to be IP67-certified, meaning they will be dust- and water-resistant. Lastly, 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.
Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event will be taking place in Barcelona, Spain on the 21st of February. The Korean tech giant says that we will see “The Next Galaxy” at the event, suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will make their official debut at the event.
