The Galaxy S7 edge has been the most underrated smartphone that Samsung will announce on February 21st, but it finally makes its way into the spotlight with new wallpapers that will, the edge aside, count as the official wallpapers for the Galaxy S7 edge and the Galaxy S7.
A curious commenter at the SamMobile forum, who calls himself “J.K. Shine,” has decided to leak the wallpapers for the Galaxy S7 edge. “I will shine once more…Here are the wallpapers of the Galaxy S7 edge,” the forum commenter said. We don’t know who J.K. Shine is (although the name does have a certain resemblance to the former frontman for Samsung, former VP J.K. Shin), but we can vouch for his credibility with the wallpapers: one of them has been leaked in countless photos by renown leaksters such as VentureBeat writer Evan Blass (a.k.a. @evleaks), in particular, the one with the dark and light blue that almost resembles a “5” in the background.
These Galaxy S7 edge wallpapers resemble Google’s Material Design language, and a few of them showcase the same Material Design theme we’ve seen with Samsung’s new Theme Store that was first showcased on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Others resemble the wallpapers we’ve seen with the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 Active, S6 edge Plus, and the Galaxy Note 5.
In any case, these wallpapers for the Galaxy S7 edge are also for the Galaxy S7, seeing that, the edge aside, both phones are identical, with similar specs, processors, cameras, and most other things except the battery. The Galaxy S7 is rumored to have a 3,000mAh battery while the Galaxy S7 edge will feature a 3,600mAh battery, a battery larger than the 3,500mAh Galaxy S6 Active from 2015.
We’re still waiting for the magic moment, but until then, we suggest you download these Galaxy S7 edge wallpapers and anticipate the unveil. How do they look on your current phone? Do they make the wait for the Galaxy S7 edge that much more difficult?
