Samsung Galaxy Note 7 shows its front and back in set of leaked images

Nearly one week after the Galaxy Note 7’s branding and specs leaked out, images that show the phone itself have surfaced.

Leaked renders that show the Galaxy Note 7 in a trio of colors have been posted by Evan Blass. The colors are referred to as Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Color. The phone itself doesn’t look too far off from last year’s Galaxy Note 5, but we can see a dual curved edge display that’s showing the same stylized “7” that was in Samsung’s official Galaxy S7 images, but this time the number consists of S Pens. Clever, Samsung.

Above that display is a third cutout along with the light sensor and front-facing camera. This is rumored to be an iris scanner, which would be a first for Samsung’s Galaxy Note flagships. Finally, the back of the phone features “Galaxy Note7” branding, adding fuel to the rumors that Samsung is skipping the “Galaxy Note 6” name so that its branding is consistent with the Galaxy S7.

As a reminder, the Galaxy Note 7 is rumored to feature a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 Super AMOLED display, 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 64GB of storage, and the return of the microSD slot after it was left out of the Galaxy Note 5. The whole package is expected to be IP68 water resistant, and it’ll reportedly launch in August.

So what do you think of this Galaxy Note 7? The design itself doesn’t appear to have changed much from the Galaxy Note 5, but I am digging the powder blue color. The return of the microSD slot is a big deal, as is the dual edge screen since the only other Note with a curved display was the Note Edge and its single curved edge. And then there’s the iris scanner, which could be a neat feature, but we’ll have to wait until the Note 7 launches to see how well it actually works.

    No thanks of that Coral Blue, that’s worse than the Gold they offered on the S6 Edge.

  • Philip

    I hope they make it without curve on the side.

  • Jake Fitzpatrick

    How would an iris scanner be used? Since I use a wheelchair, I’m all for making my life easier somehow.

    • Guest

      Just for identification I assume, or what else can you do with you iris? Now a tongue scanner… no, I don’t mean that, but that too.

  • AM Gone

    Will be very interested to see how the left edge screen will be used compared to current edge. My Note Edge is nearing end of life with the battery, etc. and is time to move on. Count me in as a first day buyer once available.

    • superg05

      just get a replacement battery i did but i understand the need to move on

  • mreveryphone

    Silver day one purchase for me. Just wish the edge screen was like the one on the first note edge…

    • phillyundead

      I thought I was the only one. The Note Edge had some great features. It would have gotten more apps HD they stuck with it. Now it’s only crappy short cuts to apps.

  • Christian

    I love the coral blue… Somehow make me the black and gold are obsolete or just a classic look.

  • Rob

    Edge displays are retarded. They add minimal functionality, increase expense, and make the device harder to protect from damage. Guess Samsung isn’t getting my business this year.

    • T Redd

      i hope the edge isnt standard. i might jus stay with my note 4.

      • phillyundead

        Note 4 is the last good phone they’ve made. I have the s7edge and it’s great but it lacks too. I liked the edge screen on the note edge. It had actual features and not just crapping app shortcuts. I may be moving to the lgv10 for awhile.

        • Anthony Joseph Taubenkrau

          And it had an IR blaster that I used to control everything in both of my homes. I can tell you I definitely miss that over any other feature from the Note 3&4 they left out (the little windows on the Note 3 were cool, too)

  • Mark Kendrick

    I would prefer a flat variant but will buy one even if that isn’t an option.

  • Richard Darrington

    Is it me or does this look like a less intrusive edge

  • angcurry

    I like a flat version not curved

  • thatguy

    does no one else just see a new color of the S6 edge? look at the camera, look at the edges, look at the phone. ITS THE SAME EXACT DESIGN.

  • Fuuuuuuuuu

    Pass.

  • steadymobb

    Not impressed with the design

  • Guest

    I’m done with Samsung and smartphones in general that cost over $500.

    • jamboop

      Only wise comment here!

  • mardi

    bring back the removable battery

    • Mike

      A phone with a removable battery can’t be waterproof so I’m fine with no removable battery. If that’s what you want android has other phones that has removable batteries.

      • B_Eng

        You forgot about the S5. That was the last do-everything Galaxy that didn’t compromise functionality for form.

        • Mike

          It wasn’t fully waterproof

        • B_Eng

          Of course it was. It had an IP67 rating. You had to deal with that shitty little charging port flap, but they obviously figured out how to waterproof that.

        • Brad C

          Well that, and those shit backs that would always crack around the edges causing it to not be waterproof. I’ll take a sealed battery with a charging bank anyday

  • Nate

    I would like a metallic electric blue please. This stormy blue is not cutting it for me.

  • Brendan

    Is this going to be water resistant like the S7?

    • Rob

      “The whole package is expected to be IP68 water resistant, and it’ll reportedly launch in August.”

      Is it really that hard to skim the article?

  • joemail

    oh man it’s a tough crowd here lol!
    no removable battery…no alligator zapping stylus…who needs 6GB ram?…
    you give them everything they want and they always want more…

  • gorilla

    Not a fan of the edge design.
    That’s the only reason I avoided the S7 Edge.
    The screen size of the S7 was too small.
    Hope there will be an flat screen option in the Note 7.

  • DiaBlox

    Am i the only one that missed why they are naming it note 7 instead of 6?

    • atown7475

      To try to keep people from think that the phone is older then the Galaxy 7. People see the name Note 6 they may think it’s old because they came out with the 7 months ago.

  • JonBarros

    any reason why they stopped making white phones? The colors they use now are so boring and dull.

    • Stigasawuswrecks

      You’re complaining about colors being boring but ask if it will come in the blandest of all? Sure, why not?

  • Anthony Joseph Taubenkrau

    So is this going to have an IR blaster? Cone on Samsung, LG is still smart enough to include this cool inexpensive feature that makes it superior to iPhone.
