New prototype photos that are attributed to be actual rendition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have been seen online. The images were actually posted on Twitter by Tech leaks guru Steve Hemmerstoffer (@stagueve).
The leaked photos have been coming out in succession since yesterday and it looks like that of a prototype Galaxy Note 7, with the test unit number embedded at the top. The images can best be described as that of a huge phablet whose display is curved and Samsung’s trademark Home key button sitting at the bottom.
Even more images of the Galaxy Note 7 prototype surfaced today, showing the device powered on and displaying what should be Samsung’s TouchWiz UI’s low battery warning notifications. The display also shows a lot of modules just at the top of the screen which may just confirm that the device might pop with an iris scanner on the right of the earpiece since we know the front facing camera is at the left of the centrally placed earpiece slit. The rest of the modules are likely light and camera sensors but the two openings on the right couldn’t be anything else but for an iris scanner.
Just as a reminder, the Galaxy Note 7 is touted to sport a Snapdragon 821 or Exynos chipsets depending on the target market, 5.8-inch Quad HD AMOLED screen, 4GB / 6GB of RAM, and the same Dual Pixel camera that is on the Galaxy S7 Edge. The device’s S Pen stylus would come with new capabilities. The Note 7 will most likely be unveiled August 2, and should start at $800.
