Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Release Date, Specs, News & Update: Samsung Skipping Note 6? Possible Photo Of Note 7 Leaked! [RUMORS, PREDICTIONS]

There's big news coming out of the Samsung camp this week as it's been revealed that the electronics manufacturer is completely bypassing the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 to name their next phablet the Note 7 (to synergize with this year's flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S7), and now we're getting photos of what that model could possibly look like.

CNet reports of images of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 revealed on Twitter by a user named Evan Blass, known for his usual leaking and tips of gadgets before they're officially revealed.

These photos seem to confirm the different rumors surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 7's features, including a curved front screen and a front iris scanner; the leak also highlights a new and unusual shade of blue that Samsung has yet to make its products in, joining the usual Black Onyx and Silver Titanium. (This shade is apparently called Royal Blue.) There also seems to be no sign of a gold version, something the company's liked to do lately.

Other rumors also reported by CNet revealed Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will include a new USB-C port, ditching Samsung's trusty TouchWiz and debuting a completely redesigned Android UI called Grace, replete with new software and features. General specs also include a 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, 64 GB internal memory (expandable via miniSD card), and a 4200 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to drop early next month, so it's not going to make it in time to adopt the new Android Nougat, which is expected to release later in the third quarter.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to go for much more than the S7 and the S7 Edge, in a suggested retail place of $800 for the unlocked version of the phone.
