Latest leak shows renders of gold Samsung Galaxy Note 7; battery tipped to be 3500mAh cell

Latest leak shows renders of gold Samsung Galaxy Note 7; battery tipped to be 3500mAh cell
The latest Samsung Galaxy Note 7 leak comes from Weibo, where three renders of a gold colored version of the phablet were discovered on Friday morning. Two of the images contained the S Pen, which of course will come with the unit out of the box. The device is set to be unveiled on August 2nd, and there are still many specs that are up in the air.

One in that category is the capacity size of the battery. Originally rumored to be a 4000mAh cell, that was later dropped to 3600mAh. A listing discovered today shows that the phablet will actually come with a 3500mAh juicer. The listing also reveals that the phablet will sport a Super AMOLED display carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution screen. Speaking of the screen, early rumors had the size of the display at 5.7-inches. But a listing on India's import-export site Zauba has left the door open for a possible 6-inch glass. Another Zauba listing hints that the phablet could be waterproof.

Another early rumor that has been shot down is the one calling for the phablet to launch with 6GB of RAM inside; more current benchmarks and leaks show that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will sport 4GB of RAM.

We still have plenty of time before the Galaxy Note 7 is unveiled for more leaks to be unearthed. Check in often for the latest on Samsung's next high-end phablet.

Thanks for the tip!

Only in selected countries. In Europe we never got the Note 5 and Samsung tried to push the S6E+ instead. It was very expensive and they didn't sell very well. I think the 0,2" + stylus isn't enough difference for people to buy the N7 in favor of the S7E. They really should have made a 6" screen.

If there is onlycurved Note7 isn't it an indication that all the edge devices sold well or better.

The comparison isn't really fair. The S7 is 5,1", while the S7E is 5,5" and has a big battery. I bet most of the buyers took the edges for granted, and just wanted the bigger screen and battery.

If bigger screen is all they wanted all this while, the Note line would be outselling the S line. Hasn't been the case. The average joe wants the new Edge design more than they care about what's on the inside...doubt they even think about battery capacity.

You think 0.3" bigger screen is more differentiating than an active digitizer that adds a whole bunch of functions? Simply go with a Galaxy Grand Prime then...

These Note7 leaks are getting crazy already!

I guess you haven't seen the iPhone ones? I know it looks the same as the last 7 years but they are still leaking

Surely it must have more than the S7 Edge.

5,7" screen and 73,9mm width? This really is the perfect phone. I didn't like the S7E because it didn't make the jump to USB Type-C and also because the scratch-prone home button. If they address both these in the Note7 they take the place of Sony-3-years-ago, they just make the ultimate phone. This is no trolling, only an oppinion.

Might have to go with the gold color.... It's something about writing with a gold pen that makes you feel bo$$!

A 3500mah would be a deal breaker for me. Main reason why I'm considering on ditching my 6P is because the battery life has become less than adequate.

That would be really sucky if they put in a smaller battery than the S7 Edge. I understand it would still be more than the Note 5, but it makes no sense to me. I'm honestly not a fan of what they're doing this year so far based on what I've heard, but I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't going to upgrade anyway. I want the water resistance simply for those days you get stuck in the rain and worry about your phone getting wet. Quite frankly I have a phone problem and need to upgrade every year lol. I was the person hoping for a larger screen...preferably not curved, the extra RAM rumor sounded nice, the 4,100 mAh battery rumor sounded amazing but I guess in time it'll get there. I'm sure it'll be a great device to me anyway, as I love my Note 5.

If they offer this phone with such battery it looks like kidding for me. I have a feeling that they try to oversave money on their customers and in the same time they try to overearn money. Everyone knows that Note 7 needs a lot of battery. 3500 mAh is almost nothing for Note 7. And phone features are not very different from other samsungs. Any way i will rather wait for any normal phone with normal battery like Holger Schubarts neutrino battery for smartphones. Good luck for all Note 7 users!

Does anyone have the same thought as me that Note 7 is pretty much a Galaxy S7 Edge with S Pen function?
