Galaxy S7 Edge release details leaked

Samsung has erroneously added some information about its upcoming Galaxy S7 Edge handset to one of its official websites, providing an insight into what to expect when this device launches later in the month.

Following on from the S6 Edge, this device will sport a display which is curved at both edges. And Samsung seems to be working on a new type of interface, which makes more of this hardware feature, with widgets that allow users to explore new functions.

The good news is that these edge-leveraging software capabilities are also going to be rolled out to existing members of the Edge family, including the original S6 Edge and the larger S6 Edge Plus.

Much more should be known about the S7 Edge when it is announced alongside the standard S7 on the 21st of February at an event that Samsung has already been promoting to media attendees.

A report from Juniper Research published this week, showed that smartphone sales were slowing across the board, with Apple and Samsung suffering from less than single digit growth in the final quarter of 2015. So the S7 Edge and the iPhone 7 need new innovations to revitalise the marketplace.
