Is This The First Samsung Galaxy S7 Leak? (Chassis Pics)

Fort the past several months, the Samsung Galaxy S7 has been the subject of many leaks and rumors, but despite the countless “unofficial encounters”, up until now the smartphone has yet to show itself in a leaked render / picture.

The good news today is that we may have broken the ice, as a handful of live pictures depicting what might be the Galaxy S7’s chassis leaked via sources in China.

Take a look at the pics below and join us afterwards for more details.

Could This Be The Samsung Galaxy S7?

The gallery at hand was shared not long ago on the Chinese micro-blogging site known as Weibo. The images show the chassis of a “not yet released flagship phone”, and the source encourages readers to take a guess on which smartphone it might be, exactly.

Alright, we admit this is a rather long shot but we want to play the game too! So our guess is that this might be the Samsung Galaxy S7.

Granted, there aren’t too many design cues that could help narrowing down the search, but the image below depicting the chassis’ profile, and headphone jack reminds us of the Samsung Galaxy S6, first and foremost.

Another detail to keep in mind is that, according to recent previous reports from Korea, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will see almost no changes in its design compared to the Galaxy S6. This is because, reportedly, Samsung wants to keep production costs on the low side, all the while focusing on improving other vital areas such as camera, display, and performance.

With that being said, the chassis in question seems to match the SGS7's "description" quite well. It leaves room for a “glass sandwich” design similar with the Galaxy S6’, and the chamfered edges should be enough to differentiate it from its predecessor.

So what do you think? Could this be the Samsung Galaxy S7? Or maybe you have another handset in mind? Feel free to share your thoughts, and remember to maintain a healthy dose of skepticism towards unconfirmed data. Source
