    Although we are a bit skeptical of this concept art Samsung Galaxy S7 image, we can't help but wonder if it could be the real deal. It is supposedly created from leaked intel on the device. The most immediately obvious thing about this image is that the device has a "triple-curved" display. You can see the usual curvature on the two sides like that found on the Galaxy S6 Edge, but the bottom edge of the phone is also curved. It almost gives the phone a slightly egg-shaped design when looking at the lower half.

    While it could easily end up being nothing more than fan-fiction, it definitely would not be out of the realm of possibility for Samsung to offer a device like this. What better way to showcase their evolving flexible AMOLED displays then to add more curves to the Galaxy S7 Edge series?

    Sound off and let us know what you think of the viability of this Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge "leak," or even the concept itself.

    Here's our dedicated Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge section for further discussion: Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Plus, S7 Edge & S7 Edge Plus

    There is a video of the device, but this is just a fan-render based upon the leaked intel. You can see it in the thread below.

    It'd be weird pressing the bottom buttons with that curved edge.

    Placeholder tech until someone turns the entire device into a display. The phone won't have a front/back/top/bottom. It'll just look like a black piece of 6mm thick glass with smooth rounded edges.

    ...I'm waiting...

    I realize they need room for camera hardware, headphone jack, charger, etc, but...At this point, why not round all of the edges to the same degree?

    Keep in mind, photos never do justice. I think it's totally cool, but I have been an Edge fan since day 1. BTW, not many liked them back then, but the Edge sold better than Sammy thought it would..

    That may be true, Jeffrey, but I think the Edge was pretty damn sexy in photos. ;)
