Samsung’s newest flagship has lost the protruding camera
Samsung’s slated to release their next flagship, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on Feb. 21, but it seems that a device has been released early to the wild. Vietnamese tech outfit Review Dao has apparently managed to get their hands on an early device that matches the renders of the new smartphone down to a T.
The new images show a very slight redesign on the front of the phone, but what’s changed dramatically is the rear. It appears that Samsung has managed to shrink down the size of the camera module, enough that it now sits flush with the body. A few minor changes have been done to the design too – Samsung’s allegedly using a magnesium frame over a pure aluminum one, and the back seems to curve into the frame, instead of being completely flat.
The website also reports that the phone will be offered in two versions – Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890. Curiously, the Exynos 8890 is said to be more powerful that the Snapdragon 820 by about 15% in both sheer processing power and GPU, and there’s also a quick charging feature that brings the phone’s battery to eighty percent with just 30 minutes of charging.
