We’re just a couple of weeks away from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but once again it looks like the Korean company has failed to keep the devices under wraps.

New photos leaked on Monday, claim to show both handsets in all their glory, ahead of the February 21 reveal at MWC 2016 in Barcelona.

The first snap (via ReviewDao.vn) appear to show a Galaxy S7 handset without the camera lens bump. Instead it looks like the camera will sit flush on the back of the handset.

While it’s difficult to know for sure, Samsung may have fitted the device with a smaller camera module, at least from a physical standpoint.

Whether Samsung has reduced the size of the sensor, down from 16-megapixels on the Galaxy S6, as previously rumoured, remains to be seen.

Elsewhere the new device also appears to have a more curved back, which could accommodate the rumoured larger battery pack within the Galaxy S7.

Previous reports have speculated video playback could be stretched to as long as 17 hours on the new device.

The separately leaked image (via Weibo) appears to be of the Galaxy S7 Edge, judging by the model number shown on screen in a benchmarking app on the dual-edged display.

It’s difficult to discern differences between this smartphone (below) and the 2015 model, but all will be revealed during Samsung’s event next month.

Both handsets are expected to rock the new Snapdragon 820 or a new version of the firm’s own Exynos processors, depending on the region.

Other headline features could be a pressure sensitive ClearForce display, that works just like Apple’s 3D Touch, Android 6.0 and USB-C connectivity.

Both devices are expected to go on sale in the UK on March 11.
