According to The Korea Herald, the Galaxy Note 7 will have a display that curves downward on both sides, just like the Galaxy S7 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge. Samsung is supposedly not planning to launch a flat version of the handset, as it did last year.

The device should be unveiled at an Unpacked event in New York in August, becoming the first Note phablet to sport a dual-edge display. Samsung could also launch a special edition version of the handset sporting a Rio Olympics theme, according to the report.

Meanwhile, a YouTube video from Techconfigurations shows us what the final Galaxy Note 7 edge design might look like. The 3D render is based on the previous leaks that have shown the alleged design of the handset. The phone is generally similar to the Galaxy S7 edge, but it’s bigger and it comes with a built-in stylus just like previous Galaxy Note models.

The video also lists the rumored specs for the handset, and it’s embedded below.
