Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge 2016 Antutu Benchmark Score, Design, and Press Photos, Leaked!

Former Engadget senior editor and popular yet-to-be-announced gadget leaker Evan Blass has just uploaded purported press photos of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 2016 flagship smartphone.

If were to believe these shots, then it appears that this year's model will look largely similar to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge -- flaunting a thin CNC-prepared aluminum mid-frame and glass touchscreen that gently curves down either sides. Notice, however, that the home button - which also has a fingerprint scanner on top - is now bigger.

Earlier, Evan also posted supposed press shots of the back panel of both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, hinting at a bigger screen for the latter (5.5-inches, say some) as well as more flush or flat rear design for both flagship releases.

According to "insiders", both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will feature a thinner 12 MegaPixel camera module in lieu of the 16 MP shooter on both Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. At first, this may seem like a downgrade, but actually the new snapper will have a better f/1.7 aperture compared to f/1.9 on previous models, which results in improved low light performance.

As for the internal hardware, "industry experts" are saying that Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will run its TouchWiz-skinned Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with the powerhouse 64-Bit Exynos 8 Octa 8890, have 4GB of RAM, and 32GB or 64GB expandable storage options. In terms of the phone's uptime, they say that the S7 Edge will be powered by a bigger non-removable 3,600 mAh battery pack that just about complements the larger display; According to them, the size bump should guarantee two-days of uptime with regular use.

Last week, Weibo user Kwangaho posted this purported shot of an actual Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge unit as well as its ultra-high 134,704 Antutu Benchmark Score, which supposedly proves that the device is absolutely capable of running the most specs-intensive 3D games and applications flawlessly.

Korean Giant Samsung is slated to formally launch both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge via the company's 'Unpacked' keynote on Mobile World Congress that's set to take place in Barcelona, Spain on February 21, 2016.
