This is the best picture yet of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

S7 Edge

A leaked image has given us the best look yet at Samsung's forthcoming flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Samsung will announce the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at its MWC 2016 event on February 21. By now, however, we already have a very good idea of what these phones will look like.

Several leaked photos have offered glimpses at the new designs, though they've hardly been the most flattering angles.

We've now been granted the best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, in what appears to be a leaked press shot. It comes from the internet's leading smartphone tipster, Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, so it's almost certainly the real deal.

As you can see, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge really will look very similar to last year's Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, as predicted. Samsung is evidently following Apple's and HTC's lead and sticking with its premium design over consecutive years.

Other recent reports have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will have a monstrous 3,600mAh battery, quite possibly to help power an 'always on' display.

We're also expecting a 5.1-inch (or maybe 5.5-inch) QHD display, a Snapdragon 820 CPU (at least in some regions), and quite possibly a 12-megapixel 'Britecell' camera.

It's also been suggested that the Galaxy S7 range could be waterproof.

Which feature would you most like to see in the Galaxy S7? Let us know in the comments below.

I agree I miss the fake leather back, these so called premium designed phones are a nightmare, my s6 cannot even stay on a sofa arm without slipping off, put a case on it and the style has vanished so what's the point

I have some sympathy for Samsung and others, who have been subjected to a modern form of bear baiting by the tech blogs and hacks. "Premium, glass, premium, metal, iPremium, gotta-gotta-gotta have premium" has been their baiting cry for so long the poor disorientated manufacturers forgot to ask who actually wants a phone made of brittle glass and dent-prone aluminium. The hacks, of course, who anyway lose interest in a toy after a few weeks.

The rest of us want something durable, where quality means fitness for purpose, not bling. Yes, I want my phone to look and feel good too, but never at the expense of the primary purpose.

Yep!
All sight gets lost that these devices are needed for two, perhaps three years, during which they spend their life in a jacket pocket and are then replaced by a more capable version, maybe with an affordable faux leather back.
