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.

Note2 is that you? With slight curve?

Looks just like the Note 5. The Note phones are becoming the "so what" category. I haven't been impressed by the Note since the Note 4.

I loved my N4. Metal sides and feels and has weight to it. Regretted selling the N4 to buy the N5. Didn't like the smooth curve design, loved the brick shape off N4. Great combo, iP5se for work, because it's compact and small, daily driver N5. Best off both iOS and Android.

Don't post to Samsung we know your a iPhone junkie so how can you judge something that out performs and iPhone

But, of course, the fact that the iPhone 6 looked exactly like the 6s which is going to look exactly like the 7 will not deter you at all. Your body will be ready. You're transparent. And, the next Note will probably be the best large sized phone available, just as the Note 5 currently is (which is one reason it has the highest customer satisfaction).

Gotta agree that the note 5 was uninspiring compared to the note 4 but if the leaks are accurate this year they seem to be learning from their mistakes by returning the Sd card slot, retaining the IP certification in the Note (that hopefully will be better than the S7 active), upgrading specs from the S series, adding new features and going for more battery instead of design nonsensical changes.

Doesn't it appear too long and less wide? Total contrast to original note, too wide and less long.

The second image does not make scenes. It does not speak Samsung design language.

S-pen is much more then a regular stylus. Use it and youll know

S-pen = stylus. Just like Apple Pencil = sylus.

Nope, it's just a regular active stylus, nothing more, nothing less, just like all the other wacom stylus. Btw, I still use my note 4 but the stylus seems to be more of a wow factor than actually useful, the display is just too small for actual work.

Amen! He is over-selling/stating Samsung's S-pen.

Over-selling? I'm glad Apple has joined in after 5 years with the Apple Pencil. It took them long enough. But here's something I did with my Note 3 for a design problem:

Excuses. I love how I can still pocket the Note, and can do stuff. Here's on-the-spot I did with just the Note 2 (5.5"): Drawing from observation.

I know what it does. What I want to know is what do you actually use it for? The Apple pencil is for the ipad and is an optional accessory. It's primary use is for drawing, etc. The stylus on the Note just seems like a check box item to me. I always believed the Note series was more about power, battery life, multi tasking and it's large screen. That's why most by it. Most of the stuff I see for the stylus you could actually do with your Finger. On the iPhone, forced touch brings up the menus.

Right. With a finger. I disagree. using your finger does not give much accuracy and details. Here is something I did with the S Pen while in a cafe: That's just a sketch. I can do detailed portraits if I need to:
