Update 02/14/16: Another rendering of the Galaxy S7 has surfaced, once again courtesy of Evan Blass. As previous reports indicated, the GS7 is tipped to include a 5.1-inch display and a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2560, a 12MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture, 3,000 mAh battery, and a 12MP camera.

Samsung already confirmed the ‘Next Galaxy’ will be unveiled on February 21st and promised the new flagship will “rethink what a phone can do.”

While the device has already leaked in various images, the latest is courtesy of reputable device leaker Evan Blass, who posted several renderings of the curved Galaxy S7 edge, which reveal the phone will come in black, gold, and grey variants.

The smartphone looks very similar to the Galaxy S6 edge in terms of design and is expected to sport a 5.5-inch always-on display with a 3600 mAh battery.


The official unveiling of both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will happen in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress.

Pre-orders of the new flagship devices are rumoured to come bundled with a complimentary Gear VR headset.

    It’s too bad the edge will be the only large screened s7. I really can’t be bothered to worry about breaking my phone all the time.

      It’s either that or the new Note for high end devices but there’s also a decent spec’d A9 with a 6″ screen as well. Also, there is the rumor that Samsung is using this new “Turtle Glass” on their phones now that’s supposed to be stronger than Gorilla Glass.

      I’m not sure if it will compare to Motorolas shatter proof screen but it should be reassuring none the less.

      A9 looks like junk and the tiny battery is an instant no. My note 3 is getting old and I don’t feel like waiting till the end of summer to replace it. Might just get a s7 then sell it when the surface phone comes out.

    These phones are going to be priced out of this world with our 70 cent dollar. 🙁

      Only for a brief period of time, then the carriers will decide they need to increase sales of any device that isn’t the iPhone and drop the (contract) price by $100-$300 despite having the same off-contract price.

      You know, that thing that happens every year like clockwork.

    S7 Edge. Hell yes

  • Mo Dabbas

    The galaxy S7 edge looks like it’s bezeless from the sides. Looks nice, but not sure how practical.

    This is barely an update to the S6.

    • southerndinner

      Micro SD, water resistant, always on display, bigger battery, better low light camera = barely an update? Assuming those rumors are true, lol.

    • Can’t Fix Stupid

      Exactly, they just released the same thing with a different number. Just ignore the stuff they added.

    Too bad great hardware is ruined by slow software updates. Why are the s6/s6 edge not on marshmallow yet? Monthly security updates what happened to those by the way? Nexus all the way.

      “Monthly security updates what happened to those by the way?”

      Just more lies from Samsung. As per norm.

    • Mo Dabbas

      Samsung promised monthly updates??
      I know my nexus 6 gets those….. but wasn’t expecting other makers would jump on that.

    • Jonah Emery

      For the past several years Samsung has always updated their Android versions in Canada in March. For flagship phones 2 years old or less. Like clockwork. Considering how the iPhone too is only updated once a year… If you want Android updates ASAP then obviously you get a Nexus.

    It’s hard to tell what the shape is going to be like with images like this. Reminds me of the 6P leaks that only showed the rear profile and the bump looked HUGE, but then when we got images from different angles it turned out to be pretty small.

  • Jonah Emery

    Just not interested this time around. Nexus 6P working great.

  • Sean-Paul

    Fingers crossed that Samsung fixed the ram management issue. On the Note 5 it was a bit frustrating
