Samsung Galaxy Note7 to sport 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, Iris scanner


For the past few weeks, Samsung has been trying hard to keep details about its soon-to-arrive Galaxy Note under wraps. However, it seems, they were unable to do so for the umpteenth time. Evan Blass (better known by his Twitter handle @evleaks), a reputed source for everything mobile, recently shared a bunch of details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note7. The Galaxy Note7 essentially skips the number 6 for reasons best known to Samsung.


If we are to believe Blass’ claims, the next Galaxy Note is likely to feature an iris scanner at the front as an added security measure. The specifications of the upcoming phablet appear to be a logical progression rather than something outright revolutionary that would make jaws drop. The Galaxy Note7 will sport a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Quad HD (1440×2560) resolution, and that translates to a 515PPI pixel density. It is likely to inherit IP68 certification for being water resistant from its siblings the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

Under the hood, the Note7 packs 64GB of space with UFS 2.0 (hopefully) and a microSD card slot to expand the storage further. The camera department is where Samsung is trying to create excitement, with rumors of two 12-megapixel cameras at the back. At the front, the phone is likely to get a wide-angle 5-megapixel camera. Details about the mobile chipset, RAM, and battery capacity are currently unavailable.

The Galaxy Note7 will be offered in silver, blue, and black colour options, which makes us wonder if the much sought after gold colour variant seems to be missing the bus this time.
