After confirming the Galaxy Note 7 moniker, leakster Evan Blass has confirmed some of the key specs of the upcoming flagship phablet.
According to the leakster, the Galaxy Note 7 will not be any different from its predecessor in terms of the screen size. It will sport a 5.7” sized Super AMOLED display, with the same 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution. The camera hardware is tipped to be identical to the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, which is hardly a surprise. That means the Galaxy Note 7 will feature a 12MP rear camera with Dual Pixel technology and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. So what’s new then? Well, the phablet will be the first from Samsung to feature an iris scanner. Iris scanning is said to be faster as well as more accurate when compared to using fingerprints to unlock your device.
What does seem a little surprising though is that the phablet will not offer any storage options. Instead, you will get 64GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot for further expansion. The phablet will be water and dust resistant as expected, with an IP68 certification. Three color options will be available – Black, Silver, and Blue.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be officially announced on August 2 at an event in New York City.
