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.

I agree there’s a lot of glare on the extended edges but I bought the s7e in spite of that just because of the look and also because the curved edges look like something modern or futuristic rather than decades old flat screens.

Headphone jack on the bottom and a curved screen and no IR blaster? Samsung, continue to come close to perfect phones and fall flat. I miss the Note 4 days

Headphone jack on the bottom makes more sense when you take it out of your pocket. Samsung should have placed it there since at least S4.

People complaining about the edge screen really need to get used to the idea. It’s worse than those complaining about phablets. I’ve put a case of my edge+ and it is still thinner than most phones. It’s functionality is as useful as any other feature if you just get used to using it. It’s supposed to more aesthetic and it is. If you want the flat screen experience jus put a big case on it and it’ll be like having a Note 3. And I am sure that with the Note 7 they’ll greatly improve palm rejection so they’ll be… Read more »

I totally get it… Edge sucks, that’s why people will flock in troves to buy it… I own a S7 Edge and the Edge is cool. Not functional but it’s the kinda thing that grows on you. I was shocked getting back to my good old Note 3 and seeing a flat ass display. Shocked! Didn’t realized what the Edge was worth till I sold my Note 3 and had to give it a last reset… The Edge is just as big of a thing as the phablet, you didn’t knew you needed it until you actually use it. My… Read more »

What attracts the eye gets the buy. That’s why TVs on display in a store are cranked up to an insane ‘retail’ colour and contrast, at max brightness. But you soon realise that what looked good in the shop you can’t live with day to day in your living room. Fortunately you can change the settings. Much the same happens with mobile phones. A curved edge screen sure looks cool, wow, pop, next to plain old flat phones. Buy! Then you have to put up with all the issues for 2 years. Of course you don’t admit that to everybody… Read more »

So, with the completely useless edge display (even more so now that it’s super narrow)… the Note 7 will have way less usable flat screen space than my Note 5. Essentially a 5.3″ flat display. Even in the render above, you get glare on the screen. How this doesn’t drive people crazy is beyond me.

We get it Samsung…you know how to bend a display, great, now please go back to flat screens. Proof of concept gone way to far imo.

And how are you supposed to hold it without touching the screen. If I’m lying on the couch or bed I support the Note under the bottom edge on my thumb, with it leaning slightly forward against my extended forefinger. That would not be possible with a bent screen as it would be the screen’s bent edge leaning against my finger. So I don’t see how it is possible to hold it without it falling into my face.

Exactly my point I put my note 5 next to my friend’s s7 edge And watched the same video on both The glare on top of of the edge screen obscures at least 5 % of the screen (Edges are very reflective) So you can watch some of the video but not all of it What’s the point of having a 5.7″ 2k screen if you can’t watch video on it???? Unless you’re in a dark room edge screen are useless and very annoying I asked my friend how he can use a phone like that , he told me… Read more »

Exactly. The glare alone is enough…then throw in warped text and images that bend over the edges. Not good. Not good at all. Even the keyboard of my old S7e had some keys that were warped over the edges. I mean…really? So design is totally getting in the way of usability. And make no mistake…it’s absolutely gorgeous. 100% insanely gorgeous. But when design actually, without a doubt, interferes with usability…. then there is a problem. It’s probably one good reason you don’t see any TV’s or computer monitors that bend away from you. You just don’t see it. For good… Read more »

Will Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have C Pen which was rumored to be able to be used on any touch screen devices instead of S Pen?
