At this point, we’ve learned just about everything we need to know about the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung conveniently skipped the "Note 6" moniker, instead opting for Galaxy Note 7 to more closely align the smartphone with the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 Active (which has recently been making headlines of its own).
Although we have already seen renders of the Galaxy Note 7 before courtesy of serial leaker Evan Blass, today sees the release of a slew of new renders, showing multiple color variations that will be available to consumers around the globe. In addition to Black Onyx and Silver Titanium that we’ve already seen, there’s also the refreshing Blue Coral and a classy gold finish that Mr. Auric Goldfinger wouldn’t mind adding to his collection.
The images also for the first time show the Galaxy Note 7 with its matching stylus pen (although let’s hope this time that Samsung has taken into account that some people will insert the stylus the wrong way into the silo).
It’s rumored that the Galaxy Note 7 will come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 or 823 SoC along with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone will have a 5.7- or 5.8-inch QHD Super AMOLED curved display, microSD slot for additional storage expansion, USB Type-C connector and a 4,000 mAh battery.
It’s also expected that the new USB-C connector will necessitate the arrival of a next generation Galaxy Gear VR headset that would not only support the Galaxy Note 7, but the forthcoming (we hope) Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge.
