A new report has emerged with new photos and leaks that reveal a lot about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
Coming from renowned smartphone leaker Evan Blass, the latest images have some quite significant information about the next Galaxy Note phone. While there have been uncertainties over the name of the phone, the same Blass recently confirmed that the phone will indeed be a Galaxy Note 7. There have also been uncertainties with respect to the type of screen the device will be using.
Apparently, Blass has some news to share and according to him, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will carry a curved dual edge display, similar to what we’ve already seen with the Galaxy S7 Edge. The latest set of images from Blass show that the phone will come in three color variants of Blue Cora, Black Onyx, and Silver Titanium.
If these images are to be believed, it means the Galaxy Note 7 will ditch the 5.7-inch screen size it has been using for years now in favor of a slightly larger 5.8-inch display unit. This is believed to be as a result of the change in the size of the Galaxy S7 Edge from 5.1 inches used on last year’s Galaxy S6 Edge to 5.5 inches, which is just 0.2 inches less than the 5.7 inches used on the Galaxy Note 5 and previous Note models.
Still, the screen will be a QHD Super AMOLED panel with the same resolution as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but it will pack a massive RAM of 6GB. As for the SoC, rumors claim that a Snapdragon 821 SoC in the running seat, but we might still see the proven Snapdragon 820 SoC making its way to this device. It has previously been pointed out that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will come with 64GB of onboard storage. Well, this is expected to be the base model, with other variants of 128GB and 256GB possibly being lined up as well.
The phone will possibly keep the same camera configuration as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but the battery capacity is expected to better the 3600mAh offered on the S7 Edge and probably come in with something close to the 4000mAh used on the Galaxy S7 Active.
Another feature that seems to be set to make its debut on the Galaxy Note 7 is the iris scanner. However, until Samsung confirms any of these reports, it is better to remain skeptic about them.
