Leaked Galaxy Note 6 blueprints show off a very familiar design

There’s a lot of speculation these days about Samsung’s next flagship handset and we can expect to see more leaks and rumors until this handset is officially announced. Today, alleged blueprints of the Galaxy Note 6 have been leaked online. They reveal that this handset has a very familiar design in that it looks quite similar to the Galaxy S7 edge, coming in at 153.5mm x 73.9mm x 7.9mm.

The blueprints also make it seem that the Galaxy Note 6 is going to have a USB-C port instead of a conventional USB port, if that turns out to be true this is going to be the first Samsung smartphone to make the switch to the modern USB standard. The S Pen retains its aperture at the bottom right-hand corner of the device. It’s also claimed that the concentration of sensors visible above the display points towards the iris scanner which will enable users to unlock the device just by looking at it. Samsung has never before put an iris scanner in a consumer device so this just may be yet another first for the Galaxy Note 6.

It was recently rumored that an edge variant of this flagship is in the pipeline as well. We’ve yet to see any leaks that give hope that a curved-display variant of the new Galaxy Note will be launched soon. Recent reports have also suggested that perhaps Samsung is going to call its next flagship the Galaxy Note 7 instead of the Galaxy Note 6, and it’s now being speculated that perhaps the normal variant will be called the Galaxy Note 6 while Samsung will choose the brand the edge variant as the Galaxy Note 7. All of this is speculation at this point in time and nothing has been officially confirmed. Samsung is expected to unveil its Next Big Thing by early August.

If this holds to be true, the Note 4 will be the final Note device I buy. It was a good run while it lasted. I can’t complain. I’ve enjoyed Notes 1 to 4. Guess I’ll see what other companies have to offer.

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 close to offer sth equal or better. So it has to keep pushing into the… Read more »

Not sure what happened to my post never showing up.
But if this is the note 6 or 7 what ever they call it look like it might have the return of IR blaster with the extra holes that my note 5 doesn’t have.

There is a extra hole at the top in the frame and a extra one by the top ear speaker. I wonder if they brought back the IR blaster.

There will be only one phone, Note 7, with Edge name or not. But the screen will be Edge.

I hope Samsung keeps releasing “flat” models. Forcing the curved edges on me would be about pretty much the only thing forcing me to consider buying a phone from a different manufacturer…

I cannot wait for the Galaxy Note 7 Edge. The water proofing and larger battery will be awesome as well as the sweat curved screen.

I don’t like that but it makes sense – 5.7″ flat screen + 2×0.5″ curves. It is something between the Edge and 2.5D edges …

It’s a good transition to an all curved flagship. The flat Note 6 and a curved Note 7 being released at the same time. Will make the S8 an edge only device and same with the Note 8. The edge does not take anything from the flat variant, so why keep it.

Guys, I received a “security update” notification yesterday on my S5 SM-G900H. When I got home and clicked on the notification, nothing happened! I went to the settings and check again for the update, nothing showed up! It’s like they cancelled the update.
