New video stars Samsung Galaxy Note 7 prototype: 5.66-inch screen, Exynos 8890 and 4GB RAM



A new video discovered this morning shows a prototype of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in action. We know that this is a prototype because the screen is flat and not curved on both sides like the production model is. We are shown the iris sensor, which we have seen in action on another video. Reportedly, the iris scanner can unlock the device in as fast as .22 seconds.

Speaking of the iris scanner, it seems our previous story showing off screenshots of its UI were spot on. We also see the pattern lock that was displayed in the television commercial/teaser we showed you earlier today.

Information from the prototype itself indicates that the screen is 5.66-inches with the Exynos 8890 chipset under the hood. On the screen, we can see that the Mali-T880 GPU will be crunching graphics on the phone. And yes, there is 4GB of RAM inside. The 12.2MP rear camera employs the Sony IMX260 sensor, while the 5MP front-facing camera employs a Samsung S5K4E6-sensor. This is the exact same camera combo found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

While being filmed, the prototype was put through AnTuTu where it scored a remarkable 135,385 points. Check out the entire video, which runs over 11 minutes, by clicking on it at the top of this story. Keep in mind that it is not in English. The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be unveiled on August 2nd.
