Note 7 prototype leaks again, flaunts iris scanner and a TouchWiz boot

Today, a few more images from the eventual Note 7 prototype have surfaced, and they show the working prototype with what seems to be a TouchWiz overlay low battery warning notifications. We can also see more clearly all the openings above the display, confirming that there might indeed be 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 an iris scanner, as we explain in detail here.
Snapdragon 821 or Exynos chipsets, 5.8" Quad HD AMOLED screen, 4/6 GB of RAM, and the same Dual Pixel camera that is on the Galaxy S7 edge. The S Pen stylus would be taught new tricks, and the Note 7 could start off north of $800 - that's most of what we know for now.As a reminder, the Note 7 will most likely be announced August 2, and should sport a
- Display 5.7" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2150 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3500 mAh

I'm a bit confused, some leaks show the Samsung logo and a higher top bazels, this leak comes in with no logo and short top bazel. Legit?

This model corresponds to the front panel that leaked before with five openings on top instead of three and no samsung logo, if you also take into account the curved glass the screen could easily achieve the 6" mark in the note 5 footprinthttp://www.phonearena.com/news

Both of them look pretty much legit, but my bet is that the phone without the logo is a mere prototype.

Dumb analogy. Some OEMs don't place a logo on the front of the phone at all and put it on the back of the phone. At least you tried.
