Samsung seems to have a really leaky ship for the Note 7. Hot on the heels of their upcoming announcement scheduled for August 2, 2016 in New York, we’re getting even more leaks. If you’re still missing out, we’ve got you covered. Read our previous article here.

So, what else is there to leak about the upcoming Galaxy Note 7? Well, according to popular leak source @OnLeaks, we’ve got the confirmed specifications of the upcoming flagship. It appears that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be coming with a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display running on an octa core chipset. It will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on board memory with microSD expansion. On the camera side of things, it looks to be sporting a 12-megapixel f/1.7 main camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and 4K video capabilities as well as a 5-megapixel front camera. It looks like it will be powered by a 3,500mAh battery, USB type C and not forgetting the much hyped Iris Scanner. According to the leaks, the device measures 153.5mm x 73.9mm x 7.9mm and weighs 168 grams.
We really hope that these are not the confirmed specifications of the Galaxy Note 7. Underwhelming, doesn’t begin to describe the specifications. What we’re basically seeing here is a Galaxy S7 Edge with an S Pen. The Galaxy S7 Edge isn’t a bad device in anyway, but if Samsung wants to excite the consumer, 6 Month old specifications just won’t do it. In addition, leaks put the price of the Note 7 at a hefty €850 (RM3,822.88) which I doubt can be justified with an S Pen.Earlier leaks pointed to the device having a more up to date octacore processor or the newly announced Snapdragon 821 with a whopping 6GB of RAM.
In addition to the new leaks regarding the Note 7, we also have press renders of the upcoming revamp to the Gear VR. The update will bring compatibility with the Note 7’s USB type C port. Perhaps one of the more interesting leaks is that the Galaxy Note 7 could possibly be launching with “Samsung Cloud”. It looks like Samsung Cloud will be Samsung’s answer to iCloud. A trademark filing was made for the service in the European Union a few weeks prior for “Samsung Cloud Together”.
It looks like some countries will be seeing the Note 7 go on sale by mid August.
