Although the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is now presumed to feature a dual curved edge display, some of the leaked images with the device suggest that initially, Samsung had in mind to do a flat-screen version of the device.
The latest leaked flat-screen images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that were posted on Weibo show a 5.8 inch AMOLED display with 1440×2560 in resolution. Supposedly, the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC processor complete with an Adreno 530 GPU and a quad-core CPU in the US and China. In other parts of the world, the device will feature a Exunos 8893 chiset complete with a Mali-T880 GPU and an octa-core GPU.
Both versions of the device will have 4 GB of RAM and pre-installed Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a 12 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. Lastly, both devices will sport 3500 mAh batteries which are very powerful and ensure a long-lasting battery life.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also appears to sport an iris and a fingerprint scanner. There is a video online that proves that both scanners work extremely fast and unlock the device in no time. According to one report, the iris scanner only takes .22 seconds to unlock the phone. However, there are some limitations to the iris scanner according to several accounts. Apparently, it only works if you place the phone in a certain position and if you haven’t had eye surgery of any kind or iris related diseases (anything that changes the iris). Moreover, you cannot use it if you wear glasses or contact lenses.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be launched with the two curved edges design on the 2nd of August. Supposedly, it will happen in New York City, at the Samsung Unpacked event.
