A few days after the Galaxy S7 showed its face in a leaked render, Samsung’s next Android flagship is back in another image leak.
New renders shared by Evan Blass show the backsides of both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The phones look largely similar to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, but it’s rumored that the rear cameras on the GS7 and GS7 edge will be flush with their backs, whereas the GS6 and GS6 edge had rear cameras that protruded from their rears. However, it’s tough to really tell if the rear cameras are indeed flush in these leaked renders.

Next to the Galaxy S7 rear camera is a flash and heart rate monitor, and below that is the “Samsung” and “Galaxy S7” branding. The edges of these phones look to be a bit curved, but again, that’s tough to confirm since we’re looking at the backs of the phones straight on.
So yeah, it’s looking likely that the Galaxy S7 will have a design that’s largely similar to the Galaxy S6. There may be some small refinements, though, like the flush rear camera and some curved edges on the back to make the GS7 more comfortable to hold. This may not be the most exciting strategy, but the Galaxy S6 is a nice-looking phone that earned praise for Samsung, so I can see why the company wouldn’t want to throw it out after one year.
Samsung is hosting an event on February 21, and it’s expected that we’ll see the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge debut there.
