Canceled prototype shows us what a flat-screened Samsung Galaxy Note 7 might have looked like

Canceled prototype shows us what a flat-screened Samsung Galaxy Note 7 might have looked like
By now, we are convinced that the Galaxy Note 7 will arrive on August 2 with a curved display in tow, which might not be just everyone's cup of tea if one of our recent polls are taken into account. 

There is still a chance that Samsung might release two versions of the Note 7, but judging by all the leaks we've been treated to so far, the chances are thinning by the minute. 

But have you wondered what a flat-screen Note 7 might look like if Samsung decided to make one? 

Well, guess what -- the rumor mill never ceases to amaze us as it usually delivers tons of leaks to sate our hunger for information. 

A leak allegedly showing a flat-screen Note 7 prototype has just surfaced and it is indeed giving us a glimpse as to what a more traditional Note 7 could have looked like. There is an iris scanner visible at the front, which corroborates that this could indeed be a scrapped Note 7 prototype.

As all facts point that this prototype has indeed been 86'd, so we wouldn't keep our hopes up for it -- Samsung and a large portion of the consumer base are obviously keen on curved 'edge' displays, so it's logical to assume that these will be getting more and more prominent. 

Anyway, we'll definitely add this new picture to our cache of leaked Note 7 pre-production units. Gotta catch 'em all!

In case there's something about the Note 7 that you don't know, check out our rumor review and fill in the blanks!

I think it was the right decision to only have a curved screen variant. Saves all of the confusion, that buyers go through, with the endless amount of models / variants from Samsung

Even though I think the edge is nice I do like flat better. So if they don't have flat this year I hope they do for note 8 that's when I will upgrade next.

Maybe they were only going to make an edge version, but they listened to all the complainers and decided to make a flat variant... Who knows until the 2nd

They refused to listen to customer and removed sd from s6 and s6 edge and its did not sell well. Note user want flat one not curved. See the patern?

Samsung has as far as I know, has not denied or confirmed if their will be 2 versions of the Note 7. All we do know is there will be an "edge" model that has been confirm by Samsung via the FCC. But since Samsung release the Note 5 with the S6 Edge+, maybe they plan to do similar this year. But we will find out for sure in 2 weeks. I can wait for the facts. Sales of the S6 and S7 have show the "edge" is the most popular selling of the 2 and even with its $100 higher price tag. And since the S7 has outsold the iPhone for a full quarter, and it cost more than the iPhone, it needs to be laid to rest that people don't buy an iPhone because they can't afford one. I know its so hard to accept the fact, some people just don't want one.
