More pictures of the 'flat-screened' Samsung Galaxy Note 7 prototype appear

More pictures of the 'flat-screened' Samsung Galaxy Note 7 prototype appear
While the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have a dual curved-edge display, there has been some photographic evidence that Samsung was considering a flat-screened version of the phone. Twice this month, we passed along this evidence to you as images of  flat-screened Galaxy Note 7 prototypes graced our pages. Today, we make it a trio with some new photos of this flat-screened prototype.

Discovered on a Weibo page, the phablet is allegedly ensconced in a case to disguise the design of the phone. The device is expected to feature a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. In the U.S. and China, the Snapdragon 820 SoC will drive the Galaxy Note 7 with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. Elsewhere, you can expect the Exynos 8893 chipset to be under the hood with an octa-core CPU and the Mali-T880 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside. Both the rear-facing and front-facing cameras use the same modules (12MP and 5MP, respectively) employed by the Samsung Galaxy S7 line. A 3500mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

The Galaxy Note 7 will sport both a fingerprint and an iris scanner. Video we've passed along shows the latter unlocking the phone extremely fast. Reportedly, the iris scanner takes just .22 of a second to handle that task.

We expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (and its two curved edges) unveiled on August 2nd at Samsung's Unpacked event in New York City.
