Samsung Just Leaked A Bunch Of Details About The Galaxy S7

Samsung's next flagship smartphone has already been given the full leak treatment, but in case there was any doubt left, Samsung Indonesia has leaked a teaser page and unlisted video full of juicy details.

The page and YouTube video, spotted by Phone Probe look like they're meant to be a launch-day (or shortly before) teaser, and they're hiding on Samsung's Indonesia-specific site. Both the YouTube video and site are hosted on domains or channels owned by Samsung, so there's little doubt that the material is authentic.

We don't get much by the way of hardware specs, but there's still some good details in the minute-long video. It looks like the leaked press photos are spot on: the Galaxy S7 looks more or less identical in design to the S6. Wireless charging and some level of waterproofing appear to be confirmed, and yes, there will be a version with curved edges.

The teaser site doesn't give us much more: a focus on privacy, waterproofing (possibly durability?), and low-light photography are all hinted at, in that vague PR-campaign way that doesn't actually say much of anything.

Anyway, if you're still on tenterhooks for the rest of the details, the official, non-screwed-up announcement will be happening on February 22nd.

    Looks like the weatherproofing rumours were true.

      And that's a great thing. With Samsung's backing, and rumours of similar water resistance in the new iPhone (a little less credible) it will soon become a standard feature that's expected of all phones and make our devices a little less susceptible to damage.

        ...a little less bad when you drop your phone in the toilet.
        ...a little less bad when you forget to take your phone out of your pocket before diving in to the pool.

          Agreed, for that really rare case its a worthwhile feature. What phones really need though is out of the box shatter protection. Every noob and his dog has a broken screen these days because they prefer the phone without an ugly rubber case. But that rubber case saves it from 99.5% of drops.

            Yeah the phones only look pretty when they're not in the case, but when they're not in the case they break!

            So the aesthetics are pretty pointless really, I'd always prefer a functional device over a pretty one.

              Showers and cures for morning wood?

              So why isn't everyone buying the Moto X Force?

                I'd say most people buy based on aesthetics not function.

                Doesn't bother me, I get to buy devices with the specs I want at non-flagship prices. I'm considering the Moto G 2015 as my next phone!

    doesnt this screen curve at the sides and corners?

    And can we stop calling these devices phones now, as im pretty sure they only add phone functionality for legacy reasons

      Suggestion on a new name?

        Mini/portable computer? with phone as an extra function :D

        My votes on Tevice, like device, but our main technological vice.


      Hence why they call them "SMART" phones

      That's an interesting point, not regarding name but the usage. If one uses their 3g/4g data plan and whatsapp, skype etc for calls and IM why does one need phone/sms. Better coverage and lower cost for mobile providers for now. "Pocket computer", "Portable Internet Device", "Mobile Device".

        It has a phone OS so it is a smart phone.

      I think we just call them PDA's again.

      With Siri, Cortana and Google Now, they are becoming more and more assistant -esque

    Looks like an iPhone. Sick of these replicas. Somebody please invent another game changer device that doesn't look like a slab of rectangle with touchscreen. Please.

      The curved ones were game changers.

      There were also rumours that Samsung were making a foldable phone too.

      Samsung seem to be the most innovative company in the phone market at the moment.

      Agreed, phones became boring to me after the iphone 4/galaxy s3. iPhone 5 added a tiny bit of height, and s4/5 had slightly bigger screens. iPhone 6 was just playing catchup to the s5.

      Samsung Edge was an interesting novelty, not much else interesting happening.

    Can we confirm if the bloatware situation has worsened?
