More rumors emerged about Samsung's upcoming flagship, Galaxy S6. Latest reports suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will pack a 3GB or 4GB RAM depending on its hardware configuration, boosting the RAM was rumored long time ago, especially since Samsung announced that it will be using its latest 4GB LPDDR4 RAM chips in its 2015 products.
Beside having a Regular and Dual-Edge variants, but it also rumored to feature a Glass back panel... ditching the bandit plastic back. The Korean giant will move into a fancier choose of material "Glass". Having a glass panel in the front and back will make the device lighter and gorgeous to look at.
The company's decision is likely driven by a desire to differentiate the Galaxy lineup from the A-series with their metal frames and plastic backs. The source also confirms what we suspected would be a non-removable battery.
Samsung has just officially unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with Dual-edge curved screen, Metal frame and Dual-Glass panels (font - back). The new combination of materials works great indeed and the Galaxy S6 Edge is arguably, the most beautiful Galaxy smartphone to date. This the second curved edge smartphone Samsung release after the Note Edge.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge packs a 5.1" Super AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution resulting into the amazing 577 ppi density. It is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The hardware Home key once again doubles as fingerprint sensor and supports the new Samsung Pay service.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge duo comes with a new ISOCELL camera sensor with 16MP resolution. The camera is enhanced with optical image stabilization, phase detection autofocus and has a single-LED flash. Quite expectedly, 4K video recording is supported.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will launch on April 10th in 20 markets, followed soon by even more countries in May. The Galaxy S6 Edge will be available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Green Emerald.
Speculations regarding the Samsung Galaxy S7 has been piling up lately, although the mobile enthusiasts are not expecting to have a look at the smartphone in CES next week in Las Vegas. But it is expected that the S7 would be unveiled on February 21st during the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event in Barcelona. Incidentally this day is just before the kick off of the Mobile World Congress expo. Now it seems that the front panel for the Samsung Galaxy S7 has leaked online.
Looking at the leaked panel, the home button appears to be longer. This is in sync with the leaked images of the Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus that depicted a rectangular home button. In addition to this, the panel shows that the sensors, power button and volume rockers will make the right side of the device more attractive. Right now it can't be confirmed that the panel is actually for the Galaxy S7, so take this with a pinch of salt, especially since sensors placed at the top doesn't match with the other previously leaked images.
The Galaxy S7 is supposed to boast a 5.2-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD display. Backed by 4GB of RAM, the device will also have 32GB/64GB of storage. A 20MP snapper will be made available at the back of the smartphone. It will be powered by the Exynos 8890 SoC in most of the countries except in the US and China. In those two countries, the Snapdragon 820 chipset will be used to power the S7 along with quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU.
Courtesy of @onleaks and Android Authority, we can now look at leaked photos of the upcoming Note 7's front panel. As you can guess, we were most interested to see what the front panel reveals to us and delightfully, it reveals that the Note 7 will indeed sport the rumoured iris scanner that we have been hearing about for a while now. As @onleaks is usually dead accurate with their leaks, this is more news than rumor.
Additionally, the photos also confirm the 5.8-inch dual Edge display that rumors have been predicting for months now. This sits in perfectly with previous reports about the Galaxy Note 7, so it isn't really a surprise at this point. Another little detail that the leak reveals is that the Note 7 won't have enough space in the front to sport the Samsung logo like all Samsung smartphones have done in the past, on account of the three lenses required for the iris scanner to work. The South Korean OEM clearly wants to keep bezel space to a minimum, so this adjustment had to be made. Did you find the confirmation satisfying or do you not care for an iris scanner on your next device?

Although the Samsung Galaxy S7's supposed launch date is still about a month away, most fans are already aware of its rumoured specs. We may even have a pretty good idea about how it will look! To add to this "preview" of sorts, two new photos have been leaked. From the look of things, it seems that they were taken in a Samsung production unit itself.
The first picture shows a total of twelve camera modules on a single factory board. Each of the modules has a number assigned to it that has been printed on the portion of the board that's right above it. On the top row, the modules are numbered from right to left alphabetically, starting with A1 and ending with F1. Similarly, on the bottom row, the numbers run from A2 to F2.
"SM-G930F_RO5_RFPCB" is printed on top of the board which confirms that these are indeed front camera modules for the S7 as SM-G930F was previously leaked to be the assigned codename for the Galaxy S7 Exynos version. The RO5 marking is probably there to indicate that this is the 5th revision for the modules. It looks like the new front camera will have its connector offset on the side, instead of being on its center like the Galaxy S6's front camera.
The Galaxy S7 is seen in its full bodied avatar in the next image, which has allegedly been shot with the first HTC One! Actually, it is not really full bodied as none of the design aspects which will make it to the final version are visible here. The picture simply shows a developer's version of the S7 being tested. Efforts have been made to even hide the brand name with a sticker right on top of the Samsung logo. The iconic Home and Back button designs however, clearly give it away.
Just the other day, I was thinking that it's still too early to be seeing video leaks regarding the Galaxy Note 8 and today we have exactly that! Admittedly, it's not exactly a Galaxy Note 8 per se that we are seeing in the video, but it still is a pretty clear indication of how the next Note from Samsung will look like from the front. Before we talk any more about it, you need to check out the video first. Take a look and see what you think about it.
The front panels show that the Note 8 will sport the same design language as the S8+, but we expected that much. If you are worried about the authenticity about the video, we cannot guarantee that, but this much can be said that the chances of this one being a fake is almost next to nothing. Firstly, the design language is too similar to that of the S8+ for it to be a product of any other company. Secondly, no tampering has been done with the video as far as we can see. Now that we know how the front panel will look like, let's just hope that the final phone has a few better surprises waiting for us.

Today we brought you the first photo showing the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to feast your eyes. It's just the front panel of the phablet that got pictured.
It seems to have undergone a photo shoot somewhere in the wild, and it shows a design that's extremely similar to that portrayed by the earlier images. The images source has been taken down after 2 hours.
The cutouts for the front camera, speaker, and Home button are all where you'd expect them to be, and you can see where the capacitive touch buttons will go alongside the Home button too adhering to Samsung's standards in terms of placement.
The Moto X+1 is starting to leak a lot, now that we're getting ever closer to its September,4th unveiling date.
Most recently, the next Motorola flagship smartphone had most of its specs confirmed by a benchmark. And now its purported front panel got leaked, smiling for a few comparison shots with the original Moto X from last year.
Both in the image above, and in the one below, you can see the leaked Moto X+1 front panel on the left, with the original Moto X smartphone hanging around to its right.
Right off the bat the 5.2-inch screen size that has been rumored many times so far seems pretty much confirmed, given the perceived size difference between the two units. And once again Motorola looks like it has been able to create a very pocketable device, if we go by the bezels of this panel alone.
