Images of the soon to be unveiled Samsung Galaxy S7 series have been leaked online, shedding some light on the flagship devices' key features.

Technology blog reviewdao got hold of Samsung's phone, alleged to be the Galaxy S7. It shows the device's glossy rear-side hinting that the phone will feature glass coating like its predecessor Galaxy S6. It also features square shaped camera module with LED flash placed on the right side.

The interesting thing to note is that there is no camera protrusion in the new Galaxy S7. It's this move by Samsung that will be welcomed by fans. It's predecessor Galaxy S6 featured an ugly camera bump and this made it necessary for device owners to use additional cover on the back. The phone would rest in a tilted position if it was placed on a flat surface without the cover. 

In a related development, image of Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G9350) also was leaked online. The picture obtained by SamMobile on Weibo shows Samsung's phone with Snapdragon 820 CPU, scoring 134,704 points on AnTuTu benchmarking application. [Check-out the images, HERE]
