Samsung’s next flagship smartphone has already been given the full leak treatment, but in case there was any doubt left, Samsung Indonesia has an unlisted teaser page and video. I assume this is a dumb leak, and not a desperate PR effort.
The page and YouTube video, spotted by Phone Probe look like they’re meant to be a launch-day (or shortly before) teaser, and they’re hiding on Samsung’s Indonesia-specific site. Both the YouTube video and site are hosted on domains or channels owned by Samsung, so there’s little doubt that the material is authentic. (Although this is almost certainly official Samsung stuff, it’s possible this is a ‘leak’ intended to give a one-week excitement bump.)
We don’t get much by the way of hardware specs, but there’s still some good details in the minute-long video. It looks like the leaked press photos are spot on: the Galaxy S7 looks more or less identical in design to the S6. Wireless charging and some level of waterproofing appear to be confirmed, and yes, there will be a version with curved edges.
The teaser site doesn’t give us much more: a focus on privacy, waterproofing (possibly durability?), and low-light photography are all hinted at, in that vague PR-campaign way that doesn’t actually say much of anything.
Anyway, if you’re still on tenterhooks for the rest of the details, the official, non-screwed-up announcement will be happening on February 22nd.
