The Galaxy Note 7 front panel just leaked – here’s what it revealed

We’re expecting to see the new Galaxy Note 7 (or 6) in August this year, and the leaks are certainly picking up ahead of the phablet’s big unveiling.

Today’s leak might just be the best look at the device we’ve had yet, however, with the entire front panel seemingly revealed.

An image obtained by @OnLeaks and handed to Android Authority purports to show the entire front panel of the Note 7, complete with what looks like an iris scanner setup.

The numerous lenses at the top of the handset look very similar to a patent filed by Samsung earlier this year, as reported by Patently Mobile, pointing to the an iris recognition system in the upcoming handset.

As the patent explains, the system would require three lenses in order to work accurately, which looks to be what we’re seeing in this latest shot.

Also of note are the dual curved edges, which a previous report hinted at earlier this month, suggesting Samsung will only be offering the dual-edge version of the device.

The screen itself is said to be 5.8-inches, and previous reports have suggested there’ll also be 6GB of RAM, 256GB internal storage, and a 4K display resolution.

At this point, there’s been no official word on whether the new image is accurate, but we have to say it looks pretty convincing.

Still, until we see the phone officially unveiled, we’ll have to take all these leaks with a pinch of salt.
