First Galaxy S7 Photos Allegedly Leak Online

We’ve seen plenty of leaks for the LG G5 so far, but Samsung has kept a fairly tight grip on an information or photos of the Galaxy S7. That may have changed today as we have some alleged photos of the S7 courtesy of GSM Arena. The photos appear to be taken straight from a Samsung factory clean room and show off a few interesting features, despite the casing used to conceal the build. Firstly, note the reflection in the glass. Yes, that is a HTC One taking this picture. Now that we’re all over that hilarious coincidence, what else do we notice here? There appears to be a huge bezel surrounding the phone on the top and bottom, and even around the sides. We also notice the familiar Samsung home button and a white sticker which likely covers up the official company branding.

The phone looks more rectangular than last year’s Galaxy S6, which isn’t a problem in itself, but that bezel looks pretty terrible in my opinion. The second photo in the gallery shows a production run of the camera module, sporting a model number of SM-G930F. This model lines up nicely with what we’ve seen historically with the Galaxy S7 lineup. We definitely need to see more photos before we can say much about the final design, but I pray those bezels end up being fake. What do you think of these alleged S7 photos? Are these legit?

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"

    The surround actually looks like a transport/alignment fixture, notice the gaps around the perimeter and big clocking clamps. I doubt any manufacturer would release a bezel that ugly.
