Mobile World Congress 2016 is right around the corner and it wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory pre-event smartphone leaks. Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy S7 series has surfaced again and it isn’t just a render this time around. There are supposedly actual photos of what might be the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge; along with details about the massive battery and benchmark scores.
The first photo was obtained from Vietnamese site, Review Dao, which shows the back of what is reportedly the Samsung Galaxy S7. It shows a thinner camera lens bump that supposedly houses a smaller 12.2MP camera compared to the 16MP camera found in the S6. Other than that, the back of the device matches well with the renders posted by popular leaker Evleaks.
In terms of battery life, a recent FCC filing has confirmed that the Galaxy S7 edge will have a large 3,600mAh battery powering the device. For comparison, its sibling, the Note 5 sports a 3,000mAh battery while the Nexus 6P has a 3,450mAh battery.
The next photo comes from Weibo user JKwan from China, purportedly showing off the front of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Apart from the signature dual-curved edges, what’s more interesting is the Antutu benchmark score shown on the phone’s display. The popular benchmarking app identified the device as SM-G9350 accompanied with a whopping Antutu score of 134,704 – which doesn’t come as a surprise considering the hardware it’s packing.
It’s only a matter of time before Samsung officially unveils the flagship Galaxy S7 series on the 21st of February 2016. Those who are interested just have to wait a little longer for Samsung’s press event at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
