We’ve already heard a lot about the Galaxy Note 7 (possibly called the Galaxy Note 6 depending on who you believe), but until now we hadn’t actually seen the upcoming phone. That’s no longer the case thanks to a fresh render from OnLeaks and uSwitch based on leaked blueprints for the device.
The Galaxy Note 7 looks like a pretty standard Samsung phablet with the notable addition of a USB-C port. There’s the familiar S Pen and a noticeable curve to the display on either side. However, OnLeaks claims this device won’t be branded as an “Edge” smartphone, suggesting the company could simply its naming scheme with a single Note handset this year.

The blueprints also reveal that the Galaxy Note 7 display will measure between 5.7 and 5.8 inches across. The overall footprint is apparently 153.5mm x 73.9mm x 7.9mm. So it should be pretty similar to the Note 5 (153.2mm x 76.1mm x 7.6mm) just a little taller, slightly thicker and a less wide.
Finally, uSwitch notes that the device is packing five mysterious sensors, which could be the Galaxy Note 7’s rumored iris scanner. Samsung has been trademarking the terms Galaxy Iris and Galaxy Eyeprint recently, suggesting the company has big plans for the eye-scanning technology.
Galaxy Note 6/7 launch event is almost exactly two months away.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 7 in early August. The company’s apparently speeding up its regular product cycle to get a headstart against Apple’s iPhone 7 so we should see it arrive pretty soon. In the meantime take a closer look at the upcoming smartphone in the gallery below.
