The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is probably still over a month away and a lot of rumors have been flying around in the run-up to its unveiling. The latest one is concerned with its front panel, with new images shedding light on the differences between the upcoming phone and its predecessors.
The photo above depicts the front display of the Samsung Galaxy S7 on the left and the Galaxy S6 on the right. The screen of the former appears to be larger than the latter. Furthermore, the newer phone’s bezels are narrower and its corners are less rounded-off. The sensors, front-facing camera and home button look to be the same between the two.
The second photo below compares the Galaxy S7 (on the right) with the Galaxy Note 5 (on the left). There doesn’t appear to be any major differences between the two, with the S7 more or less looking like a smaller variant of the Note 5. As per Phone Arena, this is the second leak of the future Samsung device’s front panel in 2 days.
The previous one had showcased the sensors, volume controls and power button on the right side of the S7. Additionally, the home button had appeared to be wider than before. The fresh leak is more in line with what we know about the upcoming handset so far, which is that Samsung is not likely to change the design of its flagship series to a major extent.
Instead, it plans to make the S7 more powerful. Speculation up till now has suggested the South Korean brand will equip the smartphone with a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560p screen, 4GB of RAM, an Exynos 8890 processor, a quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC for the US and China, and an Adreno 530 GPU.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 will most likely debut at the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event on February 21, which takes place a day before the Mobile World Congress.
