The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Could be Quite a Lot Bigger than the Galaxy S7

With MWC just around the corner, the tech world has become as leaky as a freshly-popped toe blister. A South Korean shipment of devices with the model numbers SM-G930R4 and SM-G935R4 -- believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge -- entered India this week, and data from import and export website Zauba suggests that the upcoming smartphones will feature different-sized displays.

It’s believed that the S7 will be a 5.1-incher, with its curved sibling coming in at 5.5 inches. Previous gossip had them both down as 5.1-inchers, so this could prove a significant find. Then again, we may simply be getting our model numbers wrong.

Purported benchmarks for the Galaxy S7 are also making the rounds, with Hungarian blog NapiDroid claiming it got a multi-core score of 5,946 in Geekbench. Benchmarks aren’t everything of course, but this would represent a significant performance upgrade over the S6.

We're expecting Samsung to flog two variants of the Galaxy S7, with one loaded with an Exynos 8890 processor, and the other running the Snapdragon 820. It's also said to feature a 2,560 x 1,440 display, a 12-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel selfie sensor and 4GB of RAM. Roll on February. [Techradar, TechCrunch]
