More Samsung Galaxy S7 Leaks Appear Ahead of MWC
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is the worst kept secret in the mobile world.
A flood of rumors has been flowing in, and now, new images reportedly show the long-rumored device and its components.
GSM Arena on Saturday published images of what appears to be manufacturing parts for the Samsung Galaxy S7. The first is a board of cameras marked with the SM-G930F name, which is believed to be the one used by Samsung for the Galaxy S7. The second image shows a developer version of the Galaxy S7 cloaked in a rig to disguise its exact design.
Rumors about Samsung’s Galaxy S7 plans have been circulating for months. Just last week, PhoneArenapublished benchmarks for a Samsung handset with the same SM-G930F codename. That benchmark mentioned that the smartphone features a 5.1-inch screen with a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440, as well as a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and 4GB of onboard RAM. It was running Samsung’s Exynos 8890 processor.
Prior to that, rumors said that Samsung would launch three versions of the Galaxy S7, including one with a bevel around the screen, and two models with screens that extend to the edge. Samsung is believed to be launching the U.S. model with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, but there has been some debate over whether it’ll feature a 12-megapixel or 20-megapixel camera.
All signs as of this writing point to a release at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona towards the end of February.
