Galaxy S7 to feature a curve in design, more pronounced than the Galaxy Note 5

Samsung has experimented with curved design since its Galaxy Round and flexible YOUM displays that are rather futuristic, if you look at the current market. The Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+ are the closest thing to curved design from the Korean giant we’ve ever seen, but Samsung isn’t done with curves just yet. The latest insider leak from OnLeaks shows that rumors have underestimated the Galaxy S7’s true design language. The leakster provides the latest drawing to show the difference in design between the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S7: while the Note 5 has a flat back cover with a camera hump, the Galaxy S7 will have a curved back – with a less pronounced, though still present, camera hump, as we reported a month ago.

Yes, it’s true that we’re not looking at a fully flexible smartphone, but we are looking at a more flexible smartphone than the Galaxy Note 5. If you remember, the Galaxy Note 5 bears the “edge” design language that Samsung brought over from the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+ on the left and right back of the device. The new curved language of the Galaxy S7 will not only include the left and right sides of the back, but also the top and bottom edges of the device as well.

What should Galaxy S7-hungry consumers and Samsung fans take away from this leak? The back of the Galaxy S7 won’t be flat, which is insider knowledge we’ve not yet seen until now, and the camera won’t be, either. Fortunately, the unveil date, February 21st, is right around the curve (I mean, corner). We expect to see, in addition to the Galaxy S7’s design language, the leaked specs and features that aren’t much of a surprise at this point. As for performance, the Galaxy S7 provides 17 hours of video playback on its 3,000mAh battery, takes 100 minutes to go from empty to full, and can charge up to 50% in 25 minutes – just five minutes faster than the current charging on the Galaxy Note 5.

.. as I’ve said before, simply having a curve design and forcing you to use without a case (in order to enjoy it) is beyond idiotic. You have a $600 cell phone and don’t use a case? Ok, maybe Apple iPoop users do, but we’re droid nutjobs.. WE use cases to protect our investment.

Author: I think you’re confusing flexible with curved.. Neither is flexible.

Why buy this crap ? specially if you got a note 4 , 5 or s6 of any kind ? there is nothing to see here .. its more curvy …. so what ? its still got knox crap so you cant root without causing issues. its still samdung, which in case everyone forgot , thinks europeans are not worth its attention (anyone waiting on the note 5 still ? ) Companies should be treated just the same way they treat their customers .

If they look anything like the S6, I’m not buying them, again… In my opinion the S6 is still a truly ugly phone, how high-end looking it might be… And if they decide to NOT bring the Note 6 to Europe.. Then I know what phone is gonna be my next one… iPhone 7.

I’m sorry but if Samsung can’t satisfy their customers by launching their flagships everywhere in the world, then they’re getting kicked in the ass and people are going to another brand. It’s simple to do these days, it’s 2016.

S6 has one of the best design and most people can agree so why change the design when it’s already perfect. Many other companies doesn’t change the design every generation. So why should Samsung

You got reddited like a mofo. I agree. I’m not keen on Samsung’s design these days and I think they are overlooking what’s important for the sake of trying to make something pretty. Fortunately for the world but unfortunately fir Samsung, people aren’t as stupid as they hoped. Especially Samsung customers, who have been left wondering, “Um, where are the features we had before and got used to?” A lot of people did NOT upgrade to the S6. Or the Note5. I’m back on the Note Edge from a Note5, which is now sitting in my bag, in a case,… Read more »
