On Tuesday evening, Samsung announced the date on which it plans to announce the Galaxy Note 7. Odd that it would confirm the name of a phone ahead of its announcement without providing any additional details, but that doesn't make the upcoming unveiling any less exciting. The new Galaxy Note 7 phablet is expected to be the sleekest and most powerful smartphone Samsung has ever created, and now a new set of leaked photos likely gives us a good look at the upcoming new Galaxy Note 7 from just about every angle.
In typical NowhereElse fashion, the French blog on Wednesday posted a series of leaked photos pulled from Weibo. It's difficult to gauge just how trustworthy the source is or how likely the photos are to be authentic, but the phone in the images matches earlier leaks perfectly, so the odds are pretty good that this is the real deal.
Here are the photos in question:
The phone pictured in these photos matches a leak from yesterday that gave us our first look at an actual Note 7. The phone appears to feature a design much like the Galaxy S7 edge, with curved edges on both sides of the display. The Galaxy Note 7 is also expected to feature stylus support and Samsung's special Note software in addition to its typical TouchWiz launcher.
Other expected specs include a 5.7-inch 2K Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 821 or Exynos 8893 processor depending on region, either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, 1 5-megapixel front-facing camera, integrated fingerprint and iris scanners, and a large 3,600 mAh battery.
