Galaxy S7 size rumors continue, with latest source pointing to three main options

When you’re prepping the launch of a major new flagship, there’s a lot on the line, and even the smallest decision could have a big impact on sales. And while there’s little doubt that Samsung’s Galaxy S7 will be huge, seemingly simple choices like those concerning the handset’s design could ultimately contribute towards a shift in millions – or even tens of millions of units sold. In that light, maybe it’s understandable why we’re hearing so many conflicting reports about both the size and number of devices that will make up the core GS7 family, as Samsung considers all its options. Over the past couple days we’ve heard a few reports that suggested the Galaxy S7 could see its size options constrained to two: a 5.2-inch base model and a 5.5-inch Edge/Plus variant. But now a new source has us rethinking all that, as it points to three GS7 size options.

Like other recent GS7 screen-size rumors, this info comes courtesy of a case maker. Based on available schematics, Samsung’s reportedly prepping a 5.1-inch flat-screened Galaxy S7, a 5.5-inch curved-screen Edge model, and a big 6.0-inch Galaxy S7 Plus available in both curved and flat-screen configurations.

That tends to fly in the face of the presumed logic tied to those recent rumors of a simple pair of size options for the GS7, which suggested Samsung was trying to streamline its 2016 flagship options in the hopes of not burdening the smartphone shopper with two many choices – and sometimes, fewer is better. At least, if the manufacturer heads in the way this new source suggests, we could be looking at more GS7 configuration options than ever.
