Samsung’s Note series will see a brand new member as the company is preparing to launch the Galaxy Note 7 this August. If you are thinking why the company chose to skip the ‘6’ moniker then it's probably to have a naming scheme more parallel to the Galaxy S series.
While we have already seen some leaks and rumours talking about the hardware and the incorporation of an iris scanner in the past, the latest leak from popular leakster Evan Blass gives us an early look of what seems like legit press renders of the new phablet.
The design does look very similar to last year’s Note 5 but as you can see that we have three colours this year including Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral. Another leak by accessory maker Olixar has confirmed that the new Note 7 will have a USB Type-C port making it the first handset from Samsung to carry the new USB interface. There is a probability for a new VR headset as well.
Expect the new Galaxy Note 7 to be officially revealed in August with a 5.8 inch, curved Super AMOLED screen, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, 12MP rear facing camera, a 5MP front snapper, 3,600mAh battery and IP68 certification which includes dust and waterproofing.
