With the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 expected for release by August, it seems only natural to find rumors coming out like crazy. But the question is, how reliable are they?

One of the more reliable tipsters to come out with better batting averages as far as smartphone leaks are concerned is Evan Blass. And now he shares an interesting take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 through alleged blueprints of the upcoming phablet.

The leak was sourced exclusively for uSwitch, which shows the handset pretty much carrying a fairly similar design to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. A difference is of course seeing the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 with its iconic stylus pen, a medium found in the Galaxy Note line.

Other than that, there is also a notable USB –C port which (if true) makes it the first-ever Samsung device to come with one, likely shunning away the standard USB ports found in Samsung devices today.

Following up on an earlier report, the latest update also digs in more to the screen size. Based on the leaked images, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will boast of a 5.7 or 5.8-inch display which includes a concentration of sensors (two large and three smaller ones).

With the sensors in mention, it somehow address rumors that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will indeed feature an iris scanner that jacks up the security biometrics of the phablet.

The phone's dimensions are purportedly around 153.5mm x 73.9mm x 7.9mm. That puts it broadly in line with the Galaxy Note 5, which comes in at 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6mm, and the Galaxy S7 Edge, which measures 150.9 x 72.6 x 7.7mm.

As far as the official name goes, it calls to mind what the device will be actually called. There was talk that it may be called the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (instead of 6) though that remains to be confirmed as with the rumors now out in the open.
