Samsung Galaxy S7 first picture leaks

This could be the first picture to leak of the Samsung Galaxy S7.

As you can see, it appears to have been taken in a testing facility. And don't worry, Samsung hasn't gone all Optimus Prime on us – that grey bit around the outside is a protective box.

So what can we learn from the photo? If it's genuine, the S7 will have a thick bezel at the top and bottom, plus capacitive touch buttons on the bottom along with a home button.

It also looks pretty rectangular, so Samsung may have tweaked the design since last year's S6. Or it could be the case is making it look that way.

It's also possible that this is just a testing unit, which Samsung uses in case any pictures like this leak. That way, the design isn't revealed before the launch.

Though it does seem to square with the render we mocked up, based on schematics from the supply chain.

Samsung is rumoured to be planning to launch the S7 at an event on February 21st, the day before Mobile World Congress kicks off in Barcelona.

The handset could go on sale as soon as March 11th.

It's said to boast a 12-megapixel camera, which would be down from the 16-megapixel snapper on the S6. Also expected are a 5.1-inch 2,560x1,440-pixel screen and 4GB of RAM.
