We are just hours away from the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note7, but the leaks just refuse to stop. Now, we have fresh leaked images of the Galaxy Note7, as well as its packaging.
The leaked images, which were first spotted by Mobipicker, give us a clear look at the front and back of the smartphone. The Gold colour variant sports a dual-edge display, with the iris scanner sitting on the top bezel. There is also the S Pen slot at the bottom, while the power and the volume buttons are housed on the right and left respectively.
The credibility of these images will be known in a few hours, when Samsung’s Galaxy Note Unpacked event kicks off simultaneously in New York, London, and Rio de Janeiro at 8.30pm IST. Alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note7, Samsung is also expected to launch the new Gear VR headset with support for USB Type-C port (and Micro-USB as well).
In the meanwhile, a leaked planogram by US carrier Sprint reveals some details about the Galaxy Note7. Shared by Phonearena, the leaked planogram mentions the Galaxy Note7 will feature the “most powerful and precise” S Pen yet, water resistance, fast autofocus and low-light capabilities, a dual-edge Super Amoled display, and 64GB of built-in storage that’s expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB).
The event will be live streamed on the company’s website here. The Samsung Galaxy Note7 has been subjected to numerous leaks, and the comprehensive list of all that is expected from the smartphone can be found here. The big highlights are expected to be the iris scanner, the upgraded S Pen features, and the new exclusive dual edge display. The Galaxy Note7 is expected to come in Gold, Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral colour options.
Samsung is expected to make the smartphone available for pre-orders from Tuesday itself in Korea. It is also expected to hit the Euopean markets on August 16. It is said to be priced at EUR 849 (roughly Rs. 63,000), while the Gear VR should burn a hole of USD 90 (roughly Rs. 6,700). Samsung has also started taking pre-registrations on its Indian site to gauge the purchase interest levels in the market.
