How many versions of the Galaxy S7 will Samsung release? Conflicting reports have suggested the number could be anywhere from two to four different models, but a new leak may provide our final answer.
According to reliable Twitter tipster Evan Blass, Samsung will offer at least three versions of the Galaxy S7. Besides the standard flagship phone, we’ll also get a Galaxy S7 edge and a Galaxy S7 edge Plus. However, there’s no mention of a fourth flat-screened Galaxy S7 Plus.

It’s unclear exactly where this image comes from, though it definitely matches Samsung’s usual branding. Then again, it wouldn’t be too hard for someone to fake the entire thing. So we’d treat this latest leak with at least a few grains of salt.
The Galaxy S7 and all its various variants are expected to offer a similar design to last year’s Galaxy S6. However, the company may also introduce (or in some cases re-introduce) a handful of features, including water-resistance, expandable storage and USB-C. Upgraded cameras and a new mobile processor are both pretty likely as well.
Rumors and recent tradition both point to Mobile World Congress next month as a possible launchpad for the Galaxy S7. We’ll be covering the entire show live from Barcelona, and we can’t wait to see Samsung’s new flagship phones in person.
