OK, now this is really getting out of hand. It seems Samsung has started sending out preliminary Galaxy Note7 units to its partners and testing labs and the latter don’t waste any time to snap a few photos and post online. One thing is for sure, the hype is real and we now have photos, upon photos, upon photos to prove it.
And just to reiterate from the top, once again, the 5.7-inch or 5.8-inch display of the phablet is indeed curved and there are undoubtedly a few extra sensors next to the earpiece, most-likely the alleged iris scanner.
This time around, we do get to see both sides of the Note7, revealing thin buttons, as well as the top. The latter is quite blurry, but there is definitely no IR blaster in sight so it’s not making a return in this generation.
Speaking of which, despite the enormous volume of leaked shots we already have, we appear to still be short of any direct view of the enhanced S Pen and its compartment and ejection mechanism, not to mention the USB port, Type-C or otherwise. Leaksters, if you are out there reading, please take note and complete the picture.
Other than that, you can mark August 2 on your calendars, as it will officially be the date of the Note’s launch. Additional specs include an Exynos 8893 or Snapdragon 821 chipset, 6GB of RAM (4GB for the Verizon version), running Android 7.0 Nougat and TouchWiz. Samsung seems to have changed the styling of the latter quite a bit and even more surprises are likely in store for us come the Unpacked event.
