We are still more than a month away from the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Naturally, there are many rumours surrounding the device, but most of them are not exactly…credible. However, a slew of leaks from one individual do seem very promising, which seemingly confirms the name of the next Galaxy Note as well.
These leaks came from none other than Evan Blass, which goes by the handle @evleaks on Twitter. According to him, the upcoming Galaxy Note will in fact be called the Galaxy Note 7. More likely than not, Samsung’s decision to forgo the number six is to make the Note series more streamlined with the company’s other lineup of flagship devices, the Galaxy S.
Other than that, Blass also confirmed several key specifications of the Galaxy Note 7. These include a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED display, 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 12MP dual-pixel rear camera (this should be similar to the one found on the Galaxy S7 duo), a 5MP front-facing shooter, and surprisingly, an IP68 rating as well as an iris scanner.

If these specifications are accurate, the Galaxy Note 7 is set to be one very capable smartphone, although it still remains to be seen if it will in fact be packing a dual-curved display akin to the one found on the Galaxy S7 edge. Regardless, we will find out on 2 August 2016, which is when the Note 7 will be officially introduced.
