Just days after releasing its new Galaxy trailer, Samsung seems to have accidentally confirmed the Galaxy S7 Edge.
First spotted by Dutch website "Galaxy Club," Samsung posted a picture on its developer website with the caption "S7 Edge." The device pictured looks very similar to the existing Galaxy S6 Edge and may be the older device as the page is describing the "Edge Screen Style" on the S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and S7 Edge. Samsung quickly removed the image, but not before the fan site captured a screenshot. The S7 Edge was also noted in UI tips for developers in written text which read, "Edge Single Plus mode is supported in Galaxy S6 Edge M OS, Galaxy S6 Edge+ M OS and Galaxy S7 Edge M OS." This mode appears to be a new function for the edge screen, offering an extended edge for more app viewing space. The Edge Single Plus mode will likely be unveiled as a new feature for the Edge line when the new Galaxy devices are officially unveiled later this month.
Samsung is expected to unveil its S7 line, likely the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, at its Unpacked event on February 21. The devices are expected to be slightly larger than the Galaxy S6 devices and are said to feature a pressure-sensitive display. The smartphones are also believed to feature a new retina scanner for added biometrics in addition to a fingerprint scanner. The S7 series is also said to feature IP67 dust and water certifications and a microSD slot, two features missing on the company's 2015 devices.
