Samsung Indonesia has jumped the gun and uploaded a video that shows off some important features of the Galaxy S7 edge a week ahead of its official unveiling. The video, which carries the #TheNextGalaxy mark, confirms that the Galaxy S7 edge (and the Galaxy S7) will indeed be resistant to water as we heard in various rumors and reports in the past few weeks.
The video has been posted on Samsung Indonesia’s official YouTube channel and shows Indonesian archer Dellie Threesyadinda training using the Galaxy S7 edge. As we can see in the video, the design of the device hasn’t changed much compared to the Galaxy S6 edge, but it’s also possible that Samsung might have used the Galaxy S6 edge+ as a placeholder in this teaser video to hide the actual design of the upcoming device (notice the home button?).
The video also confirms wireless charging feature on the device, though we had no doubt about its existence. Moreover, a teaser website for the device, hints wireless charging, fingerprint sensor, and improved low-light imaging with captions “worry-less discovery”, “experience privacy at its finest”, and “bring light to the night”, respectively.
Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge on February 21 at MWC in Barcelona, and we’ll be there to cover the launch event live.
