When there are subtle hints in a leak posted online, it is assumed that chances of being its true are quite high. Such is the case with recently leaked press renders of the much awaited NEXT Galaxy devices from Samsung. For the past couple of months, we saw a lot of leaks establishing various factors, from sporting a USB Type-C port to having pressured sensitive displays, there are tons of rumors come along, and many have a stick. Now in a full glory, the notorious leakster, Evan Blass on his Twitter account has posted images of what appears to be of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, two variants as reported earlier.
What more can we make out of these images? Well, apart from the fact the design is quite similar to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, there is one striking difference, both models have quite the variation in display size, unlike last year’s flagships. One could sport a 5.2-inch display while other might have a 5.5-inch display size. As posted on the link shared by Evan, the screens would be Super AMOLED with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolutions. The display will supposedly have always-on functionality, enabling a glanceable screen.
With criticism all over the place in last year’s flagship from the South Korean giant, the new upcoming handsets are said to sports 3000mAh and 3600mAh capacity battery on S7 and S7 Edge, respectively, compared to the 2550mAh and 2600mAh on the S6 and S6 Edge. Meanwhile, the microSD card slot might be coming back on the company’s high-end device as consumers demand.
In the camera department, Samsung has been using the 16-megapixel image sensor with a variation of better aperture every year. But this time, the company is expected to tone down the megapixel while still increase the aperture number. It is reported that 12-megapixel resolution modules with f/1.7 would be used on the next-generation Galaxy smartphones. As per unveiling of the handsets, the devices should be announced sometime in mid-to-late February, with a global roll out in the next month. Take all the information with a pinch of salt, since the handsets are yet to be officially revealed, there’s nothing can be certain about the specifications.
