Leaked 3D renders offer our best look yet at the Galaxy S7

Samsung Galaxy S7 Leaked 3D Renders

When Samsung unveils the Galaxy S7 in the near future, it won’t have a lot of surprises to offer. uSwitch Tech has uploaded a YouTube video that shows us some leaked 3D renders of the Galaxy S7 and they give us a closeup look at a device that looks to be thicker than last year’s Galaxy S6 — and hopefully that means a bigger battery as well.

FROM EARLIER: LG’s new Signature OLED TV is only 2.5 millimeters thick

As you can see in the video below, which was given to uSwitch by Steve “@OnLeaks” Hemmerstoffer of, the device looks pretty similar to the Galaxy S6, although its camera seems to protrude less and it looks like it has a thicker body. Other than that, though, it looks like Samsung is going with the same basic design and glass-and-aluminum body that was so attractive in the Galaxy S6 last year:

uSwitch says that the device will measure in at 7.9 millimeters thick whereas the Galaxy S6 came in at 6.9 millimeters thick. Why is the new device a full millimeter thicker than last year’s? Many Android users are probably hoping it’s because the device packs more battery power and recent leaks have claimed that the S7 will feature a 3000mAh battery, which is a jump up from the S6’s 2550mAh battery.
