Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have made its rounds online, and the highly anticipated phablet has now been speculated to come in three different colors.
According to Evan Blass, who is behind the signature @evleaks and has had majority of his rumors turning out to be true, the new colors for the Galaxy Note 7 include Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Blue Coral. There is no Gold color option mentioned in the latest leak.
Given the timing of the leaked information, Samsung fans who want the new phablet still have time to make their choices prior to the gadget’s rumored launch on Aug. 2.
Aside from colors, details revealed in the past have shown that the Galaxy Note 7 will come with an iris scanner and could be powered by a 3,600 mAh battery pack. A first time for Samsung, the iris scanner will basically allow users to unlock their device simply by looking at it.
For its display, consumers can look forward to a curved Super AMOLED display, either 5.7 or 5.8 inches in size, as well as a 6 GB worth of RAM.
Samsung is said to be getting rid of the typical flat-edged version of its tablet. Such decision would bid goodbye to the company’s current line of smartphones, such as the Galaxy S6 and S7, both of which are available in flat- and curved-screen models.
Meanwhile, a new report is suggesting that the South Korean company could be planning to release a larger variant of the new phablet.
Based on a listing on import tracker Zauba, Samsung is currently running tests on a variant of the Galaxy Note 7 that comes with a 6-inch display. The listing suggests that the device has been imported into India and bears the model number N930R4.
Past details also point out that the Galaxy Note 7’s model number could be SM-N930. As such, SamMobile, the recently spotted 6-inch variant might only be a prototype of the Galaxy Note 7 which the company is testing and that the final product might remain to be the 5.7-inch display.
Other features include an additional storage of 64, 128 or 256 GB, which can be made expandable using a microSD card.
Possibly running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the Galaxy Note 7 will be packaged with the Grace TouchWiz UI. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and internal Exynos 8893 chip are likely to be incorporated into the device.
As for the phablet’s cameras, the new device will reportedly be made available with a 12mp rear snapper and a 5mp front shooter.
The public can expect a water- and dust-resistant body, with an IP68 certification, similar to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
In addition, accessory maker Olixar previously shared an image of the Galaxy Note 7 suggesting that a USB Type-C port will be included, making it the company’s first phablet to make the change.
Details for the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are yet to be announced.
