Is this the first photo of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?
With just about three weeks remaining until the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the first photo of the device has appeared. The image matches the leaked press renders tweeted by Evan Blass at the beginning of the month, and confirms that the Galaxy Note 7 will come to market sporting a dual-curved edge screen.

From the name of the device to the size of the screen, there has been several "mysteries" surrounding the phablet. Samsung is reportedly skipping the Galaxy Note 6 moniker and jumping straight to the Galaxy Note 7 name to sync the number scheme with the Samsung Galaxy S7. Samsung was also concerned that consumers might consider the Galaxy Note series to be one generation behind.

As for the screen size, most rumors and leaks have the phablet carrying a 5.7 or 5.8-inch screen, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. But India's Zauba import and export website posted a listing for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that showed the phablet sporting a 6-inch screen. Another question mark appears to be the amount of RAM inside the device. There has been plenty of speculation calling for 6GB of RAM on the Galaxy Note 7, but several Geekbench benchmark tests have shown the unit employing 4GB of RAM.

All of our questions should be answered on August 2nd when Samsung is expected to introduce the eagerly awaited phablet. For now, you can check out the first photo of the device, leaked today.
