Samsung’s “Galaxy Unpacked 2016” event is just around the corner though there is no shortage of leaks related to the high-end Galaxy smartphones expected to be announced on Sunday. Apart from an official teaser video and details of a improved low-light camera performance, there are also leaked press renders, rumours of a Batman v Superman special edition, information about the production of the Galaxy S7 Edge’s display.
A #TheNextGalaxy teaser video (via Phone Probe) by Samsung Indonesia has hit YouTube, and features a prominent local athlete that uses the Galaxy S7 Edge to help her achieve goals. The video points to a waterproof, or at least water-resistant build for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, no camera bump on the rear panel, support for wireless charging, and support for the Gear S2 smartwatch. White, Gold, and Black/ Blue colour variants are featured in the video.
A Samsung Indonesia webpage that teases the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7 also features a few details – little nuggets about improved low-light camera performance, water-resistant build, and improved privacy.
Soon after posting press renders of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Evan Blass aka @evleaks, one of the most reliable phone tipsters, has now shared renders of the Galaxy S7 showing the handset in different colours. In other leak, the Galaxy S7 Edge has been leaked in live images purportedly showing the front of the device. Additionally, a Korean report has claimed that Samsung may be working on a Batman vs Superman movie inspired special edition variant of the Galaxy S7 Edge. Lastly, a Korean Business publication has claimed that the Samsung has ramped up display productions for the dual-edge curved Galaxy S7 Edge, taking hints from last year demand of the Galaxy S6 Edge.
If the new renders shared by Blass on Twitter are to be believed then the Galaxy S7 will be available only in Black and Gold colours. The Galaxy S7 Edge, on the other hand, was spotted in Black, Gold, and White colours in leaked renders.
In other leak, the Galaxy S7 Edge was spotted (via Sammobile) in a couple of live images shared by a Weibo user. The images shared claimed to be from the Galaxy S7 Edge were blurry and only showed the front panel. In one of the leaked images, the device’s start screen is seen with Samsung written on the screen.
A Korean report has surfaced claiming that Samsung is working on a special edition version of the Galaxy S7 Edge for the Batman v Superman movie slated to release next month worldwide. To recall, Samsung last year had teamed up with Marvel and launched the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Limited Edition smartphone in select countries. Details about the special edition Batman vs Superman Galaxy S7 Edge are limited as of now.
Samsung is also rumoured to ramp up the production line for the dual-edge featuring Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone this year. According to the report, the South Korean giant faced difficulties matching the demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge last year which has reportedly forced the company to stress on the production line of its successor. The Korean report says that the Samsung has plans for the Galaxy S7 Edge production and has secured facilities with a monthly production capacity of 9 million units.
