Previously, we’ve told you that Samsung will increase the size of its next flagship phablet and will name it Galaxy Note 7. We don’t have the confirmation from the manufacturer, but there are plenty leaks on the internet suggesting that the device might come with a dual-edge display variant, just like the Galaxy S7 received an Edge version. Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) has posted a video on his Twitter account, showing the curvier version of the sequel to the Note 5.
The video posted by OnLeaks has 15 seconds and you can see the Note 7 phablet rotating, but only the front panel has been released and it has a screen curved on both sides. And we’ve noticed that Samsung has kept the metal frame that runs around the display, but whose diagonal has been increased from 5.7-inch to 5.8-inch. Other features that can be seen in the video are the USB-C port and the S-Pen slot that is located down below.
Qualcomm will bring QuickCharge 3.0, so it should work fine with the new USB-C, which is why the South Korean manufacturer won’t have any problems implementing it. Other rumors were claiming that the Note 7 will benefit from a new dual-camera system, but for now, we can only tell you that the sources have mentioned something about “a concentration of sensors” that will sit above the screen (two will be larger and three will be smaller). Also, an iris scanner is expected to make its appearance on the new phablet.
The Note 7 is expected to be waterproof, the AMOLED screen will support a QHD resolution and the battery will have a capacity of 4000mAh. Samsung will most likely use two variants of hardware configurations, so one model will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor and the other will have an Exynos 8890 processor, but both models will support 6GB of RAM. The device will most likely be released on April 15.
