Leak partially confirms hardware specs of the Galaxy Note 7

Yesterday, a leak from @evleaks suggested that the Galaxy Note 7 will be available in a new Blue color variant, while also introducing iris scanner for the very first time in the Note series. The latest leak from China has now substantiated some of the previously leaked hardware specs of the Galaxy Note 7.

This new leak has mentioned the presence of a Snapdragon 821 SoC (2.3 GHz quad-core) along with Samsung’s own Exynos 8893 chipset (2.6-2.7 GHz octa-core). We expect the Exynos models to be focused on the developing markets while regions like the U.S. will probably end up getting the Snapdragon model of the Galaxy Note 7.

The leak also reiterates that the Galaxy Note 7 will feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64/128/256GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a 12-megapixel dual-pixel phase-detection rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, a 4,000 mAh battery with fast-charging support and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with the new Grace UX. This will be Samsung’s first mobile device to feature a USB Type-C port, thus ditching the micro USB port for good.

The Note 7 is also expected to debut an all-new S Pen stylus with Samsung Pay. The handset should be water/dust resistant as well (IP68 certified). The flagship is expected to be announced by early August, so the wait shouldn’t be too long from now.

It is replaceable. You only need a lot of tools and patience for it. 😉

Recharging it is quicker.

What’s “New Grace UX”? Is that the Note UX beta they were testing in China?

Hit refresh on the homepage. There’s a leak of the new UX and I have to say as someone that has hated Touchwiz, this is beautiful.

On AndroidCommunity there is a leak with the logo’s. The Edge and non-Edge have seperate logo’s, so there is hope after all.
5,7″ flat.
5,8″ edge.

Hope that it has a flat screen cause i always put screen protectors on my phone and glass screen protectors for edge phones are almost impossible to find.

The only thing missing from my Galaxy S6 edge+ was the S Pen to make it my perfect phone. And maybe water resistance too but I love the edge screen and the performance, fast charging wirelessly etc. Note 7 sounds like the best!

Finally they got rid of that outrageous 32GB storage capacity! Now I can buy a 64GB device in my country! Just one more thing to make me happy, they must launch a flat screen variant, the edge screen is useless!

I was going to ask the same question…

Grace is codename of Note 7 😉

Yup. That’s the code name for the “New Note UX”. Note 7’s code name is Project Grace, so it makes sense.

Grace is the internal code name for the Note 7 itself.

A 5.7″ display could well point to the older type USB port so it will still fit the present Gear VR. I also think it might have a flat, not curved screen.
