The Samsung Galaxy S7 is due to be announced in a few weeks at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As with any launch, leaks are coming left, right, and center regarding the Galaxy S7. Samsung typically announces the next Galaxy S in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress, so it’s not too far fetched to believe that will happen again this year. The Galaxy S6 saw a radical shift in design from Samsung. And we’re expecting the Galaxy S7 to refine the design on the Galaxy S6 as well as set the tone for 2016.
Now, it appears that we have some images of what appears to be the front of the Galaxy S7 as well as the front-facing camera for the device. Looking at the front of the device with the display, it appears that it may not be as wide as the Galaxy S6 or even Galaxy S7. So it’s possible we could have a different sized display here this time around. The forehead of the phone appears to be a bit bigger than the other models we’ve seen from Samsung lately. The camera also appears to be on the right-hand side of the earpiece. And we still have the physical home button – which will likely house the fingerprint sensor – as well as the back button on the right side and recents on the left.
Now for the camera, there is a board of cameras here which also shows the model number SM-G930F. Which is the model number we’ve heard of before for the Galaxy S7. Actually the model number for the Galaxy S7 is the SM-G930, the F at the end is for a specific region. For example, in the US the carriers all have either an A, S, T, or V at the end of their model numbers. And looking at the “R05” there, this appears to be the fifth revision of the camera.
We don’t know a ton about this camera, but Samsung always has some pretty decent front-facing cameras and we wouldn’t expect anything different here with the Galaxy S7. We’ll be on the ground at Mobile World Congress in February to get all of the details.
