Samsung’s Galaxy S7 could look almost exactly like the Galaxy S6


Samsung will likely unveil its next flagship Android smartphone, the Galaxy S7, at Mobile World Congress next month, but we may already know what it looks like.

Surprise, surprise: It’ll look very similar to the Galaxy S6, if newly leaked press images of the unreleased phone, from the well-connected Evan Blass (@evleaks), are to be believed.

Writing for VentureBeat, Blass reports the GS7 will indeed come in two screen sizes. The 5.1-inch model will have a flat screen and the larger 5.5-inch model “S7 Edge” will have the curved screen that we saw on the S6 Edge and S6 Edge+.

The displays will stick with the same Super AMOLED panels with QuadHD (2,560 x 1,440) resolution; the screens are said to have an “always on” feature that will let you look at glanceable content without sucking up too much power. Interestingly, Blass makes no mention of apressure-sensitive screen as previously rumored.



As previously reported, the GS7 will come with Samsung’s Exynos 8 8890 octa-core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor will be available in some regions), 4GB of RAM and two storage capacities (32GB and 64GB). The batteries will remain non-replaceable — 3,000mAh on the GS7 and 3,600mAh on the S7 Edge; the phones will both support fast wireless charging.

The phone will have a 12-megapixel back camera with a faster f/1.7 aperture lens; the camera module is said to be flush with the back and no longer protruding out. The front camera will be a 5-megapixel selfie camera — same as on the GS6.

Blass also confirms the return of the microSD card slot for storage expansion (supports cards up to 200GB) and IP67 dust and water-resistance.

we will be reporting from Mobile World Congress next month, where we should hear more about Samsung’s next big thing.
