It seems that the South Korean smartphone giant is ready to take on the iPhone 6s Plus with the Galaxy Note 7. Images of the Galaxy Note 7 are out and the phone not only resembles the S7, it also features a similar Edge display.

The images are leaked by Evan Blass, a mobile reporter and a great leakster. The images show what, according to him, is the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The image presents the front and rear mug shots of the device in three different colors — Black Onyx Silver Titanium and Blue Coral.
The leaked photos also show the device sporting an Edge display, like the one seen on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge. The Edge display on the Galaxy Note 7 curves away to the left and right edges of the screen, unlike the single, curved edge that Samsung had endowed the Note Edge with.
The leaked front and back photos of the Galaxy Note7 reveal one more important feature; first, one can be surer than ever that the Galaxy Note 7 won’t be featuring a dual-lens rear camera. Second, the front of the camera reveals three black circles. While two represent the front camera and the ambient light sensor, the third could be the Iris scanner that was earlier confirmed to be featured in Galaxy Note 7.
As for now, the the Galaxy Note 7 specifications are considered as following: 5.7/5.8-inch Q-HD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 821 or Exynos 8893 SoC, 6 GB of RAM, 64/128/256 GB internal storage, micro-SD expansion, 12 mega-pixel camera with dual-pixel PDAF (phase detection auto-focus), 5 mega-pixel front-facing camera, 3,600 mAh battery, Iris scanner and the new Grace UX on top of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Earlier, Evan Blass also confirmed that there will be no Galaxy Note 6, Samsung is going forth with the Galaxy Note 7 name for its flagship. The Galaxy Note 7 will succeed the Note 5 and now Notes and S’s will walk hand in hand.
The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be launched on August 2nd as confirmed earlier.
