New renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have leaked. While another report claims the pair will be waterproof, features a microSD expansion slot, and ship with larger batteries.
Samsung can't be thrilled with all the leaks pertaining to its upcoming and yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. A Samsung employee reportedly leaked an internal presentation, which gave the world a look at the Galaxy S7 compared to the S6 and S5. Now, renders of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have leaked, in addition to another report, which confirms the pair will have microSD expansion slots, water resistant bodies, and larger batteries.
Twitter user Evan Blass posted what are believed to be final renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Unlike last year's Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which both featured 5.1-inch displays, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will use different sized displays. The Galaxy S7 will pack in a 5.1-inch 2,560 x 1,440 Quad HD display, while the S7 Edge will boast a 5.5-inch 2,560 x 1,440 Quad HD dual-edge display.

The second report comes from VentureBeat, which reveals some juicy new details regarding the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. According to its source, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will see the return of a microSD expansion slot and both devices will reportedly support up to 200 GB microSD cards.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will apparently borrow a feature that first debuted on the Galaxy S5 in 2014. The pair will possess IP67 dust-and water-resistance certifications, a feature many smartphone fans hoped would make its return to Samsung's next-gen smartphones.
The source also claims that Samsung has addressed another major criticism it received with the release of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, poor batter life. The Galaxy S7 will reportedly use a 3,000 mAh battery and the S7 Edge will ship with a 3,600 mAh battery. Unfortunately, users will not be able to replace the batteries this time around.
