Samsung’s Galaxy S7 is back in news with 2 photos showing the front panel and the camera module. To top it off, @evleaks has confirmed the U.S. specific release date of this flagship.
Rumored to be launched on Feb. 21, the Galaxy S7, tied to the model number SM-G930F, has leaked numerous times in the past. However, now, GSM Arena got an exclusive tip with two photos in tow.
One of freshly leaked photos shows the front panel of the upcoming S7. The traditional company logo has been covered by a sticker and the home button on the device looks crooked. Plus, the bezels apparently look quite big for a flagship. However, Phone Arena noted that the large bezels have been added to conceal the actual look.
The second photo shows a front-facing camera unit and the model number mentioned above is stamped on it. In “SM-G930F,” the "F" represents the designation of a country or region. In any case, it is noticeable that the front-facing sensor is different from that of the Samsung Galaxy S6.
The connector reportedly sits at the center on the Galaxy S6’s camera module, whereas the same connector is offset to the left in the Galaxy S7. Even though, the real reason behind moving the connector is unknown at this point, portals suggest, the extra real estate can be used to accommodate a bigger capacity power plant.
Meanwhile, the ever-credible leakster Evan Blass has tweeted saying the Samsung Galaxy S7 release date specific to the U.S. has been pegged as Friday, March 11. However, the S7 will be unveiled on Feb. 21 during the company’s own Unpacked event, which is a day prior to the Mobile World Congress 2016.
Here, check out the tweet from Blass confirming the release date:
