Mobile World Congress is just a few weeks out, and so the leaks are aplenty.
We now have actual photos of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge caught in the wild. Samsung is expected to unveil its next flagship handset at a press event in Barcelona on 21 February, so these significant, close-up looks of the Galaxy S7s are very welcomed because they somewhat legitimise circulating reports while also adding fuel to the rumour-mill flames.
The two images that have leaked online appear to show the front of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge and the back of the Galaxy S7. These photos line up with previous rendered leaks, and from them, we can see that the phone's camera housing appears slimmer than what the Galaxy S6 offers, suggesting Samsung has opted for a smaller sensor, though it is hard to confirm that at this point.
Reports have claimed the Galaxy S7's camera will be 12 megapixels, whereas the Galaxy S6 has a 16-megapixel camera. Either way, this leak from Vietnamese site Reviewdao.vn is impressive, as we are finally getting to see what the new phones could look like in our hands. We can also see from the photos, for instance, that their exterior looks more plastic than glass.
It'll be interesting to see if Samsung has decided to scale back with the premium features altogether. We'll know more for sure later this month, when Pocket-lint will be live on the MWC show floor, bringing you all the latest news.
