Note 7 official accessories listed along with a bunch of third-party cases

Note 7 official accessories listed along with a bunch of third-party cases
For the last few days, we have been treated to a number of leaked photos and conspicuously official-looking renders of the upcoming Note 7 by Samsung. The company eventually got tired of the handset leaking out like a rusty pipe, and announced its official name and Unpacked event date for August 2.

On the images, we could see the metal-and-glass body, the curved display, and an extra set of sensors or cameras for iris scanning on the right of the earpiece slit. On the left we seemingly have the usual set of a front-facing cam, light and proximity sensors, but those two openings on the right are something else, which could only be the rumored iris scanner

So, based on these leaked renders, prototype pics and internally-obtained schematics of the new design, case makers are already preparing the veritable onslaught of fine wrappers for the device, a number of which are now listed by an accessory peddler in the UK. The e-tailer also divulged the official accessories that are coming with the Note 7, along with their internal coding.

As usual, we can expect a Clear View and S-View cases, as well as something called a Lens cover, plus the inevitable and pretty funny to see for the Note 7 snap-on physical keyboard. While the official cases aren't shown with any pictures, some of the third-party ones are, and you can get a pretty good overview of what the Note 7 will look like in a case from the slides below.

Awaiting PA to speak on this - The Gear S2 is soon to get an update which will allow you to install apps directly to it, without using the phone. That move along will make it 99.9% standalone.

They already mentioned this in an article titled 'A major update is making Samsung's Gear S2 smartwatch even smarter' published about 7 hours ago.

I'm crazy about the fact the Black Note7 actually has a black metal frame. My first pre-order for a smartphone.
