New images reveal USB Type-C port on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The upcoming Galaxy Note 7 was leaked in all three color variants earlier this morning, also confirming a curved display and an iris scanner. We exclusively reported that the Galaxy Note 7 would feature a USB Type-C port two months ago. Now, a new image from accessory maker Olixar has confirmed the presence of USB Type-C port.

The image of a tempered glass screen protector meant for the Galaxy Note 7 reveals the USB Type-C port on the bottom along with a bottom-firing loudspeaker, an S-Pen slot, and a headphone jack. The screen protector from Olixar also has openings for the front-facing camera, iris scanner, an ambient light sensor, and the earpiece.

Samsung might announce a new version of the Gear VR virtual-reality headset that would work with the Galaxy Note 7’s USB Type-C port. We expect both the devices to be unveiled by Samsung on August 2 at an event in New York.
