Samsung surprised many of us with the release of the Galaxy S6 edge around the same time last year.
No longer made of the usual plastic that had dominated Samsung's design language the past few generations, the S6 edge was beautiful, fresh, and with all pun intended, it was edgy.
Now that it's nearly time for a product refresh, it would be safer to assume that the Korean conglomerate will continue to ride the wave of the S6 edge's success and replicate a very similar design with the usual upgrade bump in specs.
We've heard rumors before that the next Galaxy edge model would indeed be truly "edgy" in that both the top and bottom parts of the phone would have a curved glass design just like the left and right sides of the unit. Internet rumors remain quiet on that front so far, however.
What we do know now though thanks to a leak from AnTuTu is what the upcoming Galaxy S7 will be sporting on the inside. There will be two versions of the S7 – one powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and another by Samsung's own Exynos 8890.
The Snapdragon model will most likely be headed over to North American shores while the Exynos variant should be hitting Asian shelves instead. Along with the leaked processor info, details about the unit's screen size, camera, storage and memory were also unravelled.
If all of the leaks hold up by next month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we should expect to see the Galaxy S7 with the same 5.1-inch display pushing a 1,140 x 2,560 resolution.
On the back there will be a 12-megapixel camera and on the front a 5-megapixel selfie cam. Keeping all of the activity in the phone in place is a roomy 4 GB of RAM, and hopefully, 64 GB of default storage saving all of our memories in the S7.
Ultimately, what the device will actually look like and how it'll feel in the hand is the last tantalizing piece of info keeping gadget fiends on the edge of their seats for now. Let's hope Samsung doesn't disappoint.
