There's been a lot more rumour and speculation about the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 models than any other device expected for 2016. There were rumours of a CES launch – which hasn't come to pass – leaving us to expect a more typical launch at Mobile World Congress in February.

But amidst the speculation about pretty much every aspect of the new device, we've now been treated to a rendering of what the regular Samsung Galaxy S7 might look like. 

As a bit of background, it's expected that Samsung will launch a number of handsets in the SGS7 family, a regular model (pictured here) a larger 5.5 or 5.7-inch edge model and perhaps a 6-inch SGS7 plus size too. 

It's important to note that these renderings don't come from Samsung directly, they've been delicately crafted by a collaboration between @onleaks and uSwitch. Reportedly, they are based on dimensions passed to case manufacturers. 

However, we've seen some of these videos in the past and last time around they were pretty accurate in the portrayal of the final device.

Note then the absence of USB Type-C, a design that's closely related to the Samsung Galaxy S6, and measurements that are said to be 142.5 x 69.5 x 7.9mm. It's thicker than the previous handset so that camera doesn't protrude so much, with unconfirmed speculation that this is to accommodate a larger battery.

Elsewhere it's predicted that this will have a 5.1 or 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution AMOLED display, be powered by either an Samsung Exynos or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and sport a new Britecell 20-megapixel camera. 

The specs are far from being confirmed but you can keep up with all the speculation in our comprehensive Samsung Galaxy S7 feature in the run up to launch day.
