Latest Galaxy Note 6 render leak reveals dual-edge display

Earlier today, we came across a 3D render of the Galaxy Note 6/Note 7 which revealed quite a bit about the upcoming Samsung flagship. A separate leak is now giving us a different (if not better) look of the phablet. We can clearly see here that the handset has dual-edges, which is in line with what the previous reports had talked about.

Whether it’s called the Galaxy Note 6 or the Note 7 is anybody’s guess right now, but there might be some truth to the rumors that the next Note flagship will feature an ‘edge’ display. The source @ShaiMizrachi has been pretty accurate with previous leaks (Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S7 etc), so there’s no reason to doubt the authenticity of this particular leak.

The handset is revealed to be 7.8mm thick, suggesting that the thickness will be slightly more than the predecessor (7.6mm). This is understandable as Samsung has to accommodate an edge display here and possibly a larger battery too. The device will be 153mm tall and 74.5mm wide, which is an improvement over the Galaxy Note 5 (153.2mm x 76.1mm). A previous rumor had indicated that the Galaxy Note 6 will be unveiled by the 2nd of August, so we might not have much waiting to do.

If Samsung will release the Note6/7 as an Edge only edition I’m moving away from them! This is taking a nice idea TOO far. Ok, depending on personal taste it got the looks over the base/regular edition, but it has so many drawbacks. 1. With such a large phone you’re bound to accidently register presses on the edge part while trying to prevent the phone from sliding off your hand. 2. Glass film screen protection products for the edge screen are non-existant (to the best of my knowledge). 3. I don’t even want to imagine the cost of repairing a… Read more »

I’m moving away from Samsung if it’s dual edge.

I will take it all, bigger phone, duel edge, bigger battery, SD card slot, waterproof, 6 GB RAM. Sounds like and incredible phone to me. I am all in.

I posted this on the other article but I just realised it’s more appropriate here. Having a curved display might not be necessary or what lots of Note series lovers want but I can now see why Samsung should/have to do it. Curved display might become the trend from next year on. Apparently Xiomi and Huawei are planning to release two flagships with curved displays by the end of this year and and even Apple is planning so next year. So having Samsung come out first with this feature (gimmick or not) it can just let others to even come… Read more »

Sorry I meant to say
So having Samsung come out first with this feature (gimmick or not) it CAN’T just let others to even come close to offer sth equal or better.

Thanks for the tip!

I had the Note 1, Note 2, Note 3, Note 4, Note 5 and now I have the Galaxy s7 edge which I love. The Note 7 has to be phenomenal for me to buy it. To me the s7 edge is almost perfect. Cant think of what will make me change. I would like 64Gb internal memory, dual sim, and a sd card slot. I filled up my 32Gb with apps already even after moving as many as I can to sdcard. And a bigger battery over 4000mAH. I also wouldn’t mind a bigger plus version 6.3 inches.

Why does everyone suddenly want a fat phone with a giant battery instead of a thinner phone? Does everyone go camping every week without a power bank? Isn’t it more practical to have a thin phone that doesn’t pull your pants down? How hard is it to charge your phone once a day for 30 minutes?

Because it´s humans. Everyone wants the thinnest phone but when they have it they complain and want a fatter phone (for battery)… And on and on and on…

i’d be happy to have a phone that will last a long day out on site or in meetings under heavy load without worrying about it dying towards the end.

I never understood why people wanted thinner phones. The thinner the phone the harder it is to hold and the heavier it actually feels on your fingers and more likely to drop it.

I’d much prefer a phone twice as thick as my Note 4 but around the same weight. It may even allow better cooling, although I believe the S7 finally fixed the 5 minute 4K recording limit.

Why do people on here hate the edge screen when sales have proven the opposite. People finding petty reasons to put the edge down. I have the S6 Edge+ had it for 9 months with a spigen case and it’s awesome. Not a scratch on it despite dropping it twice. No need for a screen protector. Tempered glass made the screen blurry so I removed it, would not recommend putting one on it. and it’s jus a beautiful design! Clearly Apple employees are on here to hate on Samsung.

No hate. Just like a glass back, etc. If you love it, great, buy an S7 edge. But if you prefer something different? A Note is not just an S7 edge with a stylus inserted. A Note is different, else what is the point?
Now try using a stylus on the curved edge? Start to understand why people who like the Note for what it is might see a curved edge as something of a frivolous nuisance. No hate, just different strokes for different folk.

if this is true and going to be released soon, I will not buy s7 edge, and wait for note 6, and mourn over my lost s6 edge plus

That render is so generic. It could be just about any phone. And note, it has a curved edge on both sides. I call bull shiz…

If Sammy wants an edge version that’s fine but there had better be a flat one too. I like the design of the Note 5 no too much to improve there. Provide an SD card slot, bigger battery and I’m sold (an IR blaster would be nice too) If we’re to be only an edge version I would definitely pass and go back to Apple.

Looks like they might as well just drop the Note name altogether and just call it the Galaxy # Stylus Edition. Shame.

Vibgyoar

Flat, please, and IR blaster and microSD card. And a reasonably robust build. There is a market for fragile bijou phones with awkwardly bent screens and limited functionality, but that is already satisfied by the S range. Just shoving a stylus in does not make it a Note!

Oh no, not again with that edge display. I don’t want an edge display. Still don’t like the design as well. Always seeing a similar design, booooooooooooring, and lazy.

And I guess there will be no European release once again, I’d be suprised is there’s going to be one.

Probably going to get a new phone next week to replace my Note 4, and it’s most likely going to be an iPhone.

Vibgyoar

Yes, what is the purpose of having a different model (Note) line if it “looks familiar” with an existing modle line (Galaxy S)? Simply duplicating an existing design and poking a stylus up it hardly satisfies a different market.

European release is confirmed… I work in the mobile phone business, and was talking to a Samsung Rep yesterday, he confirmed that it will come to Europe!

SD card will make a comeback too

Agreed. Very boring and it looks like the galaxy s6 edge+ with no rounded 2.5d corners. Bah….

Samsung are you at least going to give us the IR blaster this time around.

I hope that is one of two models… the edge is cool and all but is a pain to get a tempered glass screen protector for. I probably won’t be buying it if they are really only going with the edge model.

No!!!!!!!!!!! Not easy to hold. No good screen protector available…. Screen glare…. WTF Samsung!!!!

Just as long as there is a flat variant. Sammy will lose a lot of biz, if they go “edge” on all their flagships. I know many people like it, but many many people can’t stand edge displays an their very well known faults. I bought an S7e and returned it 2 weeks later. I know three people who did the same. Glare (look at any picture of the S7e, glare on both sides) images and text warped over the sides, keyboard warped over the sides, usable screen space is decreased, because the edges serve no real purpose. None. By… Read more »

for comparison, the s7 edge is 150.9×72.6×7.7mm, and it’s 5.5″ screen, this new rumor is a little taller and wider, so a 5.8″ screen maybe? the real question is, where’s the pen gonna be at? they didn’t put it on the s6e+ probably due to the very thin edges, so this look no different, it’s likely a successor to the s6e+, but what’s the point when it’s just a little bigger than the s7e.
