So called leaks about Samsung phones are old. There were schematics released several weeks ago which gave us an idea about the size and dimensions of the new phone which was given to third party case developers to make sure they could release products to co-incide with the launch. But now, new 3D renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 series of phones have appeared which show us a lot more detail.
Samsung Galaxy S7 series renders surface:
The 3D renders, made from the previously mentioned schematics, were made by ITSKINS. These renders should be fairly close to what the next generation Samsung Galaxy S7 series will look like.
First off, there will be four variants: a Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7+, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge+. The S7 and S7 Edge are said to have a 5.2″ screen, whilst the S7+ and S7 Edge+ will have a bigger 6″ screen. Obviously, the Edge versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 series will have a curved screen following with tradition for the last couple of years.
What does appear to be new, however, is that the curved screen phones appear to have a flat back, and the flat screen phones have a curved back, which is the opposite to the current gen phones.
The schematics told us that the S7 and S7 Edge will have dimensions of 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm, whilst the S7+ and S7 Edge+ will have dimensions of 163.32 x 82.01 x 7.82mm.
Further scrutiny of the renders shows that the home button on all the devices appears to be larger and wider than the current gen phones, which will allow the fingerprint sensor to read more of your finger at a time and allow for fewer misreads.
There is no confirmation as to when the Samsung Galaxy S7 Series will be released, but projections put it at an earlier launch than this year possibly February (this year it was March 1st). What is certain is that it won’t be at CES in the next couple of weeks.
