Samsung Galaxy S7 leaks continue with alleged photo of the GS7’s rear


The Samsung Galaxy S7 appears to be following in the pre-announcement footsteps of many smartphones that’ve come before it. First we got rumors about its specs, then leaked renders, and now a photo that claims to show the GS7 in the flesh has found its way online.

Posted by Vietnamese site, the image shows the back of a Samsung-branded phone that looks like the Galaxy S6, but with a couple of notable tweaks. First is that the rear camera on this device doesn’t protrude nearly as much as it does on the GS6. In fact, it looks nearly flush. And then there are the sides of this phone’s rear, which are all curved. To compare, the GS6’s rear is flat.

As a refresher, the Galaxy S7 is rumored to include a 5.1-inch 2560×1440 Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB storage options, a microSD slot for adding more storage, a 3000mAh battery, and a 12-megapixel rear camera. As for its processor, the GS7 is expected to pack an octa-core Exynos 8 Octa 8890 in some locales and an octa-core Snapdragon 820 in others (including the US). The whole package will reportedly be water resistant.

We likely won’t see the Galaxy S7 made official until February 21, but the device shown in today’s leak does line up with GS7 renders that’ve leaked previously. And because T-Mobile isn’t big on putting its branding on phones, it’s possible that the device you see in the photo above could look largely similar to the one that’ll hit T-Mobile shelves.

    Is it me,… Or is the back of that s7 look Really Really cheap ??

    How many people are interested for this or another top of the line Samsung phones, as opposed to mid range phones like Samsung’s A and J series that are also coming?

    I say this because it appears like everyone is focusing on the flagship phones, when in reality many of us are not gonna buy those for one reason or another.

    PS: I don’t like Samsung by the way, but I may buy an A or J series phone because there are very few mid range alternatives.

      I was thinking about moving from another brand flag ship to a top end Samsung but changed my mind to go with mid range devices. I need band 12 so it must have that and be able run Android good enough. I am done with high end phones for now.

      • AS118

        Same. I’m thinking of waiting for the new phones to drop, then buying one of the old mid-range or flagship phones as long as it has Band 12. Maybe the LG G4 or something. My G2 doesn’t have band 12. Plus, a removable battery gives your device more longevity, especially if you tend to treat your phones really well.

    It looks like a remote control.

    • i

      oh, they replaced the photo.

  • Anon

    It may be the angle, but it looks really thick. And why does his hand (thumb) look photoshopped

    • gpt2010

      And for some reason the back doesn’t look like it is metal. Looks like plastic. I know it’s not. It’s just my eyes.

    • Jay Holm

      How exactly does a photoshopped hand look? It looks like a hand!

  • vinnyjr

    Looks like there could be a large battery in that beast. Hope so. The thickness might be for that reason. I like the shape and size. Great job Samsung.

  • J.J.

    Kind of reminds me of the old faithful gs3.

  • Definitely not work a buy! same throw up, being throwN up…YEAR AFTER YEAR! And these fools keep buying it! LOL

  • i

    The apple on the background looks better.

  • kev2684

    Galaxy S3 called he wants his design language back lol

  • MattPortland

    That’s gotta be a test mule.

    • Kilroy672

      I agree. We all know this is not the finished product. I do believe this is a decoy to get some thinking this is the real deal. I’ll believe it when Feb. 21 rolls around and the world gets to see the real S7 and S7 Edge. Until then…..

    • i

      You’re right, they still have a lot of time to do that.

  • Jimmy James

    Does it look blue to anyone? My friend says it looks gold.
