Samsung may have big plans for the Galaxy S7, literally. The South Korean company is apparently planning to release a 6-inch Plus-sized version of the flagship phone, and a new leak offers our best look yet at the rumored phablet.

The renders, which were created by uSwitch using CAD blueprints obtained by OnLeaks, show us what essentially looks like a super-sized Galaxy S6. The design hasn’t changed much, and Samsung may even stick with microUSB for another year rather than upgrade to a reversible USB-C port. The new home button appears to be a bit more rectangular with sharper corners, though that may not be the final design.
The leaked blueprints also reveal that the Galaxy S7 Plus could measure 163.5mm high by 82mm long. That lines up with earlier leaks, suggesting the phone could sport a massive 6-inch display. The design is pretty thin too at 7.82mm, making it just a little thicker than the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 5.
Samsung is also expected to release a flagship-sized version of the Galaxy S7 with a 5.1-inch display. Both devices will likely pack upgraded processors and powerful new cameras, though it looks like expandable storage won’t be making a return anytime soon.
Rumor has it the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Plus will arrive early next year. Based on Samsung’s recent history we’re expecting to see them unveiled at Mobile World Congress in late February.
