As usual, Twitter user Evan Blass (who is supposed to be on retirement) posted some supposed images of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge on January 29 — three days before the Samsung Mobile twitter account announced the event.

The renders showed the two devices side-by-side with a lockscreen that seemed to flaunt how pitch black Super AMOLED could get with a boring touch of blue. Also, the two devices expected to be very similar to their last year predecessors which isn’t so surprising.

Twitter user Edudzi‘s post about Samsung being in the habit of using colorful lockscreens in promo images to flaunt how super-saturated Super AMOLED screens could get had me doubting the renders initially, but as the event is on February 21 — the same date on the lockscreen, my faith has been restored.

BGR believes the Galaxy S7 will feature a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The S7 Edge will likely have most of the same hardware except it will also have a larger display larger 5.5-inch screen — the same size as Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus.

They are also expected to be waterproof and have microSD card slots.
