Evan Blass of @evleaks fame is back with a slew of “marketing renders” pertaining to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge.
While the Galaxy S7 Edge renders show the device in black, silver and gold hues, the flagship Galaxy S7 comes only in black and gold colors. On Sunday, Samsung will launch both the S7 variants at the Unpacked event, which will then be showcased at the MWC 2016 event.
Past reports suggested that the Galaxy S7 release date has been set for March 11. This means, readers can expect the preordered handsets to start shipping on this day. The preorder window starts on Feb. 21 and ends on March 10. Potential buyers preordering the handset on these days will receive a free Samsung Gear VR.
In terms of design, both Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will apparently look like the predecessors Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge with minimal exterior changes. The back of the handsets will marginally be curved, similar to the Galaxy Note 5, Phone Arena noted.
The metallic frame will be made of magnesium and the device will reportedly be able to provide two days of battery life. Camera upgrades, followed by waterproofing and microSD card slot have all been tipped.
The S7 will come powered by both Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 chipsets. To be specific, the U.S. variant will make use of the Qualcomm chipset. This device will reportedly carry a 12-megapixel BRITECELL rear-facing camera unit with an aperture of f/1.7.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S7 price leak suggests that the flagship will cost 16.49 million dong (about $740), whereas the Edge variant will carry a price tag of 19.9 million dong (about $890).

In any case, readers should note that Samsung has not confirmed any Galaxy S7-related details thus far.
