The Samsung Galaxy S7 is expected to debut early next year. Rumors have it that the other handset that will be launched alongside will be called Galaxy S7 Plus. Meanwhile, several details on both the handsets have also surfaced.
According to GSM Arena, it has been revealed through ITSkins, a company that manufactures cases for Galaxy smartphones that two variants of the Galaxy S7 handsets will be launched. The measurement of the Galaxy S7 handset is 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 mm. Its dimension is similar to that of the Galaxy S6 which measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm. Hence, the Galaxy S7 is likely to sport a 5.1-inch display.
The other variant of the S7 measures 163.32 x 82.01 x 7.82 mm, which indicates it is a huge handset like the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 that measures 163.6 x 84.9 x 8.6 mm. It will be larger than the Galaxy S6 Edge+ that measures 154.4 75.8 x 6.9 mm and features a 5.7-inch display. The alleged Galaxy S7 Plus is going to be a 6-inch smartphone.
In the previous year, the Samsung Galaxy S6 arrived with Galaxy S6 Edge handset that features a dual-edge curved display. However, the information that has been revealed through ITSkins is now indicating that Samsung will not be launching a dual-edge screen variant for the S7.
Instead, a larger version of the S7, called the Galaxy S7 Plus, will be launched. There is also possibility that the Edge variant will be launched with Galaxy Note 6 later next year.
As mentioned before, the Galaxy S7 will resemble the Galaxy S6 handset. However, the Galaxy S7 will be shedding the old-styled round Home button to make for a newer rectangular shaped button. The SIM card slot has also been repositioned to the side of the device.
