Speculations about the new design of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 are coming out like clockwork these past few weeks and most recently, leaked renders of the flagship phone from the Korean tech company were recently revealed showing different designs and features. And since the Galaxy S7 might be the most highly anticipated Android phone that’s set to release in early 2016, expect a lot of rumored renders for the smartphone.
Check out the render from GSM Arena below:
Reports have indicated that this leaked render of the Galaxy S7 shows no significant change in its design coming from the previous Galaxy S6. The render shows a supposed design of the back of the device that appears to have the same pattern of rounded edges and a protruding camera that the Galaxy S6 also has.
The leaked render also appear to have a measurement of 143.37 x 70.8 x 6.94 millimeters, the same as the previous version with dimensions of 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 millimeters. Reports have suggested that there are only two major changes appearing in the leaked render: “A home button that is more oval-shaped and a SIM slot that has been moved to the side of the device.”
Another speculation for the Galaxy S7 points to a liquid-cooling design for improved performance. Reports have revealed that the Korean tech company is supplying ‘heat-pipe supplies’ and may also suggest that these are “used on circuit boards to create channels away from components that can overheat.”
Samsung might be eyeing its liquid-cooling design to deal with heat issues concerning not just their company but other smartphone suppliers as well. So if the tech giant will set its sight on this new concept, they would be following the steps of Microsoft, who previously added liquid-cooling to the Lumia 950, and Sony, with their latest Xperia handsets.
And if we assume that Samsung follows its previous plans, their new Galaxy S7 would be announced in late February 2016 or early January, before the annual Mobile World Congress event set to happen in Barcelona on the 22nd to the 25th of February 2016.
