Is this our first look at the Samsung Galaxy S7?

Renders of Samsung’s next flagship smartphone are trickling out, and these latest ones are the best-looking yet.

A series of case renders for the Samsung Galaxy S7 have been released, seemingly revealing the handset.

Four different cases have been unveiled by case-maker Olixar, all designed for Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy smartphone.

The images were provided to TrustedReviews by mobile retailer Mobile Fun, which you can see below:


“The renders for their popular FlexiShield series appear to confirm that the placement of the front-facing camera will be moved towards the front lower right of the top bezel, and the SIM card tray will be slightly lower down,” a Mobile Fun spokesperson tells TrustedReviews.

He continues: “The home button appears to be more squared off and perhaps shallower than on recent Galaxy phones too.”

“Otherwise, it looks like not much of the design has changed from the S6, as expected,” the spokesperson adds.

This latest leak comes days after a separate series of images – also from a case manufacturer – turned up online.

The sudden influx of case renders could suggest Samsung really has finalised the Galaxy S7 design, and is now providing vendors with detailed schematics.

Samsung is expected to launch its next smartphone in early 2016, so there’s a good chance the design process may already be completed.

However, Samsung has not made any public comment about the Galaxy S7 yet, so take any leaks with a degree of scepticism.
