The Samsung Galaxy S7’s release is approaching quickly and with that comes the leaks of several aspects of the device. GsmArena today has received images of both the front panel and camera module of the upcoming flagship. These images were snagged from the product line, most likely the production ready version, but a developer model based upon markings.

The front panel does not show any branding, thanks to a well-placed sticker, but it does show the undeniable fingerprint scanner home button. Samsung has been using this style home button for numerous generations and is one of the few Android phones with one on the front. While it’s hard to judge the screen size of the device from this image, there are reports that claim the S7 will come in at 5.2-inches. Judging by the flat face, this is not a S7 Edge variant, but rather the standard S7.

The camera module further solidifies our thoughts that this is a Galaxy S7 model due to the branding “SM-G930F” found at the top. This model number is likely Samsung’s internal branding for the S7. Upon further inspection, we have also noticed the R05, which is most likely a revision of an earlier module. We do know that Samsung will be using its new BRIGHTCELL camera tech in the S7, which is meant to allow the S7 superior images under low lighting.

Over the past months, we’ve seen leaks regarding the specs, possible release date, and new camera technology. With all this leaked information, what tricks does Samsung have up its sleeves? Will it shock us with an elaborately choreographed production on stage again? Perhaps Samsung will lighten its overlay this time around. What do you think of what we’ve learned about the Galaxy S7 so far?
