Listing for screen saver reveals a Type-C USB port for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?
An image from accessory manufacturer Olixar apparently provides the answer to the question of which port will be used by owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. A website that sells smartphone accessories includes an image of an Olixar tempered glass screen saver for the 5.7-inch or 6-inch screen that Sammy's new phablet will sport. The image of the screen saver doesn't exactly match with the leaked press renders of the Galaxy Note 7 tweeted by Evan Blass.

Olixar's image shows more sensors on top of the phone than Blass' leaked images have, and only one side of the phablet's screen is curved. Both sides of the Galaxy Note 7 feature the curved-edge glass on the images leaked by the tipster once known by his Twitter handle of @evleaks.

One piece of new information that we might be able to take away from the screen saver's listing is that the phablet will sport a Type-C USB port. That is, if we want to believe that the illustration is correct. Since the Gear VR won't work with this port, we could see Samsung introduce a version of its VR headset that will work with the Type-C USB opening. On one hand, it would seem unusual that in a world just discovering VR, Samsung would prevent its hot new phone from working with its VR headset. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note series has always been about  offering the latest specs and that would include the Type-C USB port.

We should find out for sure on August 2nd, when the Galaxy Note 7 is unveiled in New York.
