Samsung is due to announce their latest Galaxy S handsets this month at Mobile World Congress on the 21st of February and as usual, Evan Blass is all over the leaks, today showing off the curvy rear end of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
The phones are showing a slightly more curved rear than the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge we saw last year, though this is a render and obviously looks can be deceiving. The other thing to note is the larger size of the Galaxy S7 Edge, which last year was essentially the same size as it’s non-curved Galaxy S brother. Also shown on the rear is the camera setup, which seems to show the returning heart rate sensor which doubles as a remote shutter on the Galaxy series.
Unfortunately this is a flat image, so we can’t check out the extent of the curves, nor can we check out if that camera module is sticking right out the back as we’ve seen with most of the camera modules on the Galaxy S series.
We also can’t see the sides, or top/bottom of the phones, meaning we can’t tell if there’s a microSD card slot on this newest model. We’ll be very interested to check out the Galaxy S7/Galaxy S7 Edge when they hit the stage in Barcelona, so stay tuned for our hands on report from Chris later this month.
