Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S7. We’ve seen leaked renders from a case maker that allegedly reveal the smartphone’s design. The leak also revealed that Samsung is cooking up a 6-inch version of the S7 called the Galaxy S7 Plus. Recently, CAD renders of the S7 Plus have also surfaced. The latest leaks show the regular and extra large version of the S7, but we haven’t come across renders of the S7 Edge or the S7 Edge Plus. Does this mean that we won’t see curved versions next year? If a list is to be believed, there will be four versions of the S7, and the S7 Edge and S7 Edge Plus are included in this list.
The list was leaked by leak master Evan Blass (aka @evleaks). He shows a list the includes the “Samsung Galaxy S7,” the “Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge,” the “Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus,” and the “Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus.”

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. We’re still on the fence on whether the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Plus will feature a 5.7-inch curved screen or a 6-inch curved screen. Design-wise, leaked renders have revealed that the S7 will look a lot like its predecessor the S6. The only noticeable difference is a rectangular home button in place of a rounded one. 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. As for the processor under the hood, markets such as the US and China are said to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while markets such as the UK are said to rock the Samsung-made Exynos 8890 SoC. As for RAM, the S7 is said to rock 4 GB of RAM. Unlike the S6, the S7 is said to feature a microSD card slot. 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.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this 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.
