A slew of 3D renders and a video pertaining to the bigger Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus have reportedly been sourced from an in-depth blueprint given to third-party accessory makers, ahead of the handset’s release. The accessory makers use this blueprint as a base to manufacture items like cases, covers and screen protectors, among others.
Going by the work of OnLeaks and USwitch, the Galaxy S7 Plus looks like a bigger version of the current-generation Galaxy S6. This is in-line with the recent report suggesting the upcoming Samsung flagship will not undergo any over the top design changes.
However, the corners of the device look well-rounded in the video and 2.5D glass has reportedly been housed on the front and the back. The renders and video do not show a cut-out for microSD card slot, even though it was rumored that Samsung is planning to bring back the storage expansion feature. To top it off, there is no USB Type-C port either, GSM Arena reported.
Furthermore, the Galaxy S7 Plus will reportedly be 7.82 mm thick. When measured near the rear-facing camera protrusion, the device apparently measures 9.05 mm. The dimension of the home button with the embedded fingerprint scanner has also been changed to 18 x 5 mm, whereas the S6 comes with a measurement of 16 x 6.7 mm.
Noticeably, the front-facing selfie-clicker has been migrated to the right side of the screen. Other rumored generic Galaxy S7 specifications include a choice of Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and Exynos SoC, depending on the region of release. The main sensor is set to be the new BRITECELL camera. The smartphone is believed to carry a humongous 6.0-inch display with 4K Ultra HD screen resolution in tow.
As far as the release date goes, the Samsung Galaxy S7 series is believed to be introduced on Feb. 21, which is a week prior to the MWC 2016 event. In any case, readers should note that Samsung has not confirmed any configurations or release date related details of the S7 thus far.
