Samsung Galaxy Note 7 rumours

Key visual features show the introduction of what is likely the rumoured iris scanner probably confirming this possibility. It can also be seen that the device takes influence from the Galaxy S7 Edge by featuring a glass screen with dual curved sides. These images are not the first pre-release leaks but they do show a subtle difference in colours as well as the gold variation.


Official specification for the device is still just rumour although recently these have proved to be highly reliable from sources like well know for getting hold of the details first.

With this in mind here is what we have heard so far about the Galaxy Note 7:

  • 5.7-inch quad HD Super AMOLED screen

  • Iris Scanner

  • 12-megapixel camera

  • IP68 water/dust resistance

  • Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon processor

  • 6GB of RAM

  • 64GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD)

  • a larger 4,000 mAh battery

It is hoped that With the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung could finally merge the usefulness of the Note's S Pen stylus and the Edge's edge panels where users can find shortcuts to apps, contacts, and other widgets.

Another detail you make have noticed is that this is the Galaxy Note 7 skipping the 6 altogether and bringing the naming style in line with other Samsung Galaxy models, this in an effort to avoid confusing naming styles that left some customers believing they were buying newer models when there were buying older models as was the case with the Galaxy Edge and Note Models.
