Samsung Galaxy Note 7 branding leaked, tipster confirms Iris Scanner

It was a week back that we heard on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 via reports from GSMHelpDesk and Korea Herald about the new Samsung phablet’s 5.8-inch curved screen. Yet again, here comes the next from the prolific phone tipster Evan Blass a.k.a. @evleaks. Evan Blass has published the branding of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on Twitter, which shows the branding comes with ‘no space’ between the Note and 7 as seen below.


In the series of tweets, Evan Blass confirms the Iris scanner of the Note 7, which is an already known feature by this time. A Korean-based camera module maker Patron is said to have obtained tender to supply the entire volume of biometric modules needed for Galaxy Note 7. For those who are new to this, Iris scanner is said to offer a better secured biometric technology compared to the fingerprint scanner. Samsung already featured this in one of its tablets — Galaxy Iris tablet. If featured, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is going to be the first smartphone coming with this technology.

In other tweets about Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Evan Blass continued to summarize the specifications of the phablet. Unlike the earlier reports by Korean Herald that stated the display size of Note 7 as 5.8-inch, Evan Blass listed a point-size variation that stands at 5.7-inch. It’s going to be Super AMOLED display. Other specifications listed include 12MP camera with dual-pixel PDAF (phase detection autofocus) feature, 5MP front-facing camera, 64GB of internal storage expandable using a microSD card. This Samsung smartphone is also said to be water and dust resistant. Galaxy Note 7 will arrive in three color options – Black, Blue Coral, and Silver.

To remind, a leaked image confirmed an event on August 2, which is widely anticipated as the launch event for Galaxy Note 7.

Waiting for Note 7 actual specs. Leeco, micromax, xolo, oppo etc down down.


“If featured, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is going to be the first smartphone coming with this(iris scanner) technology.”
Microsoft already did that with Lumia 950 and 950xl.

Glad you pointed out that. It has been long since someone mentioned about Lumia to me that it didn’t cross the mind at all. When checked, the spec sheet was saying “Windows Hello Beta” feature instead of Iris technology. So purely, missed it out. There was also an Android smartphone “Fujitsu ARROWS NX F-04G” launched in Japan with Iris tech. In that case, safest to say as Galaxy Note 7 as the first Samsung smartphone to come with the feature. Will update this. Thank you.
