Rumours from earlier this year hinted at the possibility of Samsung’s next Galaxy Note coming with an iris scanner.
Now mobile device leak extraordinaire, Evan Blass (@evleaks) has all but confirmed it.
In a series of tweets, Blass says he’s confirmed that the next Note will be called the Galaxy Note 7, skipping the Note 6 moniker.
It is believed that Samsung is choosing to skip the Note 6 name to maintain naming continuity with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge that launched earlier this year.
Blass also confirmed several key specs for the Note 7, including a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 64GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
If the specs are accurate and Samsung is sticking with Quad HD, it would mean that the 4K Ultra High Definition screen it showed off for VR likely won’t arrive until next year for the Galaxy S8.
The Note 7 will reportedly come with a 12-megapixel back camera and a 5-megapixel frontcamera.
The wait is on guy!!!
