One of the most talk about gadget of today that has been anticipated by many is Samsung’s next flagship mobile device which has been a subject of numerous leaks and speculations which brought us to give you yet another leaks of the handset and this time is not just some renders or anything but a real world live device pictured to give us a glimpse on what to expect with the handset in terms of its external design.

The new leak image is of thesaid Galaxy S7 that Samsung is to unveil a day before MWC and will demo the handset at Samsung’s booth atthe MWC floor. The image came from Vietnam and from the looks of it, this seems to be genuine but is still unclear whether the device that we see here is a dummy or an actual unit itself. The alleged handset does come with a curved back but at this point, it’s hard to tell if it sport a glass back panel but it’s shiny.


The flashed camera module can be seen from this angle and noticeablythe shiny metal frame is there which is described as Magnesium metal frame as opposed to previous generation metal-based Samsung devices that utilized aluminum. In addition to these info, the upcoming Galaxy S7 is said to come in two versions based on these processors which will be powered by either a Snapdragon 820 or Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 and if benchmark results from device tests that’s believed to be the Galaxy S7 devices having these processors, the Exynos 8890 variant is said to be a 15 per cent more powerful than the S820 equipped Galaxy S7 both in CPU and GPU tests.

Another thing about the upcoming Galaxy S7 is that is will feature a larger battery and is said to support quick charging capabilities that put the handset from 0 to 80 per cent of battery in just under 30 minutes and not only that, the Galaxy S7 canstay up for two days from a fully charge battery under normal conditions with LTE on and display set to full brightness. But these claims are yet to be tested in the real world so let’s not take these wholeheartedly for the meantime.

Samsung will definitely unveil the Galaxy S7 this coming February 21st and will be showcased at MWC then we’ll have to wait for a fewweeks for Samsung to finally launch the handset in the market. Our leakster also claims that Samsung will be introducingthe handset in Vietnam by March 3 and sales will kick off on March 8, that’s a week later after Samsung will launch the Galaxy S7 in Europe on March 11. Aside from these availability dates, our leakster also brought some information about the pricing of the handset which starts at6.49 million dong or roughly $740 for the Galaxy S7 while the Galaxy S7 edge will bear a19.9 million dong price tag which is equivalent to $890.
