Note 7 Leaked Images
A leaked photo surfaced earlier last week showing final marketing renders of the Galaxy Note 7 in its three launch colours (Black Onyx, Blue Coral, Silver Titanium) and they confirm it will come with a curved ‘Edge’ display like the Galaxy S7 Edge. It also shows a key third detail: a USB Type-C port. This new feature on the Galaxy Note 7 will be a key differentiator from the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
Now, we do get to see both sides of the Note7, revealing thin buttons, as well as the top. The latter is quite blurry, but there is definitely no IR blaster in sight so it’s not making a return in this generation.
While the wait is on, a new report out of the company’s home country of South Korea is claiming that the phone will go on sale the same day it’s unveiled, which is August 2.
It says that the move is aimed at taking maximum advantage of this year’s Olympics, scheduled to begin on August 5. Finally, the report also notes that Samsung has already secured supplies of the Note7 for the August 2 launch.
