Usually leaks come from shady tipsters in dark digital alleyways. But not this time.
Samsung has accidentally confirmed the existence of the unannounced Galaxy S7 Edge.
The handset – which has been rumoured for launch this very month – was mentioned a total three times (read: not a typo) on the company’s own website.
The references to the unconfirmed handset were posted on a Samsung developer page that details Edge-display features.
Here’s the first mention:
And the second:
And a final reference buried in the text:
We've asked Samsung for a comment on the matter, and received the following response: "Samsung doesn't comment on rumour or speculation."
Unfortunately, aside from confirming a couple of features, we still don’t know what the S7 Edge will look like.
What’s more, there were no clues as to the Galaxy S7 Edge specs, so we’re still largely in the dark about the handset.
However, if Samsung is already updating its product pages, it’s likely a launch date is nearing.
The most likely opportunity for Samsung to unveil its next flagship is the Samsung MWC 2016 press conference, which takes place later this month.
It’s rumoured that Samsung will show off both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at the event, as well as a possible third handset, the Galaxy S7 Edge+.

Do note, however, that Samsung is yet to confirm any such devices officially, so stay tuned.
