Samsung Galaxy Note 7 curved display confirmed by cases?

Reports that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will only ship in dual-curved screen form appear to be right on the money, if new case designs are anything to go by.

It seems Samsung’s next flagship phablet is almost ready for launch, but there’s still a great deal of speculation as to its design and feature set.

One recent rumour from South Korea suggested that the Galaxy Note 7 (Samsung looks set to skip the ‘6’ altogether) will only come in a dual curved edge version, like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. There’ll be no straight model.

As Phandroid points out, a range of Olixar cases available over on MobileFun seem to confirm this suggestion. Each of the Olixar NovaShield Samsung Galaxy Note 7 case images appears to contain a render of a curvaceous smartphone.

Of course, this is far from official confirmation of the Galaxy Note 7’s design. But case makers do often receive a heads-up as to a new phone’s design ahead of release, which is how you can often protect your phone on the cheap right from launch.

If there was any doubt that this was a Note device, the case also contains a gap for the stylus. See, right there in the bottom left hand corner.

We’re expecting the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be launched in early August with a 5.7-inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 821 or 823 CPU, 6GB of RAM, a 3,600mAh battery, an iris scanner and a 12-megapixel dual-lens camera.
