Earlier today, we got an up close look at what is more than likely the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 in the flesh. Well, the back of it anyway. Following that big leak is yet another, this time of the device’s bigger, more curvy sibling: the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The phone was photographed, showing off its AnTuTu benchmark score (a whopping 134704 points) on its beautiful curved AMOLED display.
Leaked photos like this rarely paint smartphones in a positive light, so if you’re thinking it looks pretty terrible now, we urge you to hold off judgement until the official renders and press photos go out. Really, it looks pretty damn close to last year’s Galaxy S line, so by now you should already know exactly what to expect.
Current rumors point to Samsung launching 2 models of the Galaxy S7 off the bat — a smaller “standard” model and a larger curved display variant. This should help Samsung compete directly with the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, without having to wait later in the year for the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 to launch. On the hardware front, the S7 Edge will likely feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED curved display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 32/64GB storage with micro SD card slot, 4GB RAM, 12MP camera, and a 3,600mAh battery.
If size isn’t a factor, it’s looking like the larger S7 Edge could be the way to go, especially if battery life is a huge concern for you.
