Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S7 has been depicted again in another concept video — but this one’s a little different to the others. Based on the leaks we’ve already seen, the gloriously good-looking handset you see in this video could well turn out to be spot on.

Concept videos typically show off excessively fancy devices with futuristic features that we’ll likely never see. But the ‘Galaxy S7’ you see in the clip below isn’t just a fanboys dream; it’s based on the seemingly genuine design leaks that have trickled out in recent weeks.

It looks a lot like last year’s Galaxy S6, then, but with a new curved glass back similar to that on the Galaxy Note 5. This will make the handset much more comfortable to hold, eliminating the flat glass and sharp aluminum edges Galaxy S6 owners are now used to.

The concept also has a more rounded frame, shiny chamfered edges, and a larger camera sensor — as expected.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the Galaxy S7. Last year’s Samsung devices were by far my most favorite from the South Korean company, and the rumors tell us this year’s will be even better.

The Galaxy S7 is expected to get its official unveiling at MWC next month, and will likely go on sale in March. In addition to an improved design and new camera, the device is likely to be packing a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a microSD card slot.

A recent report also claimed the Galaxy S7 will have a pressure-sensitive display just like Apple’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
