Galaxy Note 7 USB-C adapter revealed in latest leak

The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to swap microUSB for a USB-C charging port, bringing the reversible plug to Samsung’s popular smartphone series. Now we’re getting a look at what appears to be the new USB-C cord for the upcoming flagship phablet.

A video of the cable in question was recently uploaded by Tinhte.vn. It shows a white cord similar to the versions shipped with previous Galaxy devices, but this time with a USB-C plug on one end. The packaging also mentions the model number EP-DN930CWE. That seems to confirm it’s indeed meant for the Galaxy Note 7, which sports the model number SM-N930.

Beyond its new USB-C port, the Galaxy Note 7 is also expected to introduce a few other exciting features. The biggest upgrade will likely be a front-facing iris scanner, which should add an extra layer of biometric security. The device could also pack an improved S Pen, a curved Quad HD display, a beefy 4000mAh battery and a Snapdragon 821 processor. It might even sport 6GB of RAM, though recent leaks suggest it may be limited to 4GB instead.

Samsung is all set to unveil the Galaxy Note 7 at an event on August 2 in New York. We’ll be there live to cover the new smartphone and any other surprises the company might have planned. Take a closer look at the alleged USB-C cable in our screenshot gallery below in the meantime.
