We know the Samsung Galaxy S7 is coming soon, while it’s very likely that the company will unveil it at the MWC which takes place in late February, there have been some rumors suggesting that the new phone could be announced a little sooner. Of course, there has been a large number of rumors pointing out some hardware features as well as the possible specs and components that will be integrated into this new handset. Samsung had the tradition of integrating very good specs in their flagships even if the design looked a little uninspiring, that changed last year with the Galaxy S6 and its variants, which looked quite good as the company built them with better materials including metal and glass. Naturally, everyone has high hopes for the next iteration of the Galaxy S, so there have been a few conceptual renders of the phone based on rumors.
Now, there’s a new conceptual render in photos and video created by Jermaine Smit, who is famous for creating concept phones. The photos and video depict a Galaxy S7 that looks quite a lot like this year’s Galaxy S6, which is what some of the latest rumors have suggested. But there are a few differences, the metallic frame doesn’t feature recessed areas on the sides, providing a more uniform look. The button placement on the sides looks quite similar to the one of the Galaxy S6 and the headphone jack, Micro USB port, and speaker grille are located at the bottom as well. The concept seems to have two slot trays on the right side, one could be used for a Micro SD card.
The video is very nicely done showing various angles of the phone, and it provides some of its rumored specs. The screen will apparently stay at the same 5.1 inches with QHD resolution, but the bezels on the side are much thinner. The main camera features a 12-megapixel BRITECELL 1/2-inch sensor with fast autofocus, f/1.8, and dual-PD technology, while the one in the front is an 8-megapixel ISOCELL camera. Powering up the phone is a Snapdragon 820 processor or the Exynos 8890, both versions with 4 GB of RAM. The internal storage options are still 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB, and the phone is shown in Black, White, Gold and Pink color options. Still, the design features the camera hump which isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, perhaps users would like some features like stereo speakers and a bigger battery to consider it a worthy successor.
