Note 7 unboxed, 4GB/64GB confirmed, gold, black and gray versions shown

The wrapper, as you can see below, is from the Korean version of the handset for SK Telecom, with an octa-core Exynos inside, while the US will most likely snatch the Snapdragon version, like it happened with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The screen diagonal translates to 5.665 inches, which will most likely be rounded up to 5.7" in the official specs. There is nothing written here about an "edge" or curved display, though - things that make you go hmm. The most important thing we see is the confirmation that the Note 7 will start off with 64 GB storage, which is pretty svelte, since the price won't be for the faint of heart anyway.
The speculation that Note 7 might come with 6 GB of RAM will apparently be left for some other year, but the waterproof chassis everyone was tipping about is indeed present, and with IP68 certification at that, meaning that you can plop the Note 7 in three feet of water for at least half an hour and nothing would happen to its internals. Heck, you can even jot down notes under water, in case you are a swimming pool biologist or something.
Wait, there is more - from the giving BBS forum boards come three color models of the Note 7, taken out of the box, and rotated a bit for a few blurry hands-on photos. The gloss that emanates from the surface is likely from the protectors that are still glued to the phablets, or maybe the units are just dummies for carrier purposes, yet the pics confirm once again the curved display, color-coordinated S Pen top, and, of course, an USB-C port. Take a look.
- 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
Can't these guys clean the phones before taking the pictures.

It still looks cheap-ish. Samsung designers probably have broken fingers. How hard is it to make a device that looks beautiful and not like an Indian bride on her wedding. Why not use frosted glass panels?

Let’s hope this is still a hoax (rumor). Cause it is TOO EARLY to be able to lay hands on this. Is it just the dummy’s box? WHere is the screen size and resolution (it is always on the box). Or the battery? Fingers crossed for a few hours… Preordering the Galaxy Note 7 will get you either a Gear VR headset http://attractivereview.com/20
It’s unclear at this time whether the Galaxy Note 7 ships with a regular microSD slot or if it’ll have a hybrid slot that would support Samsung’s newest expandable memory cards,

Smells like fish here! Where is the Blue variant? In the box, where is the screen size and resolution? Where is the iris scanner? Also, why don't they take off the spen? Is it because these are just dummies? And how they got it since it is NOT yet available, not even to third party companies?? Are we seeing a photoshoped pile of Note5 and S7 edge images??? Just a thought...

All worried fans for lack of 6GB & 4000 mAh battery: ***We have seen that the 6GB doesn't make any difference to performance rather it screws up the battery life (eg One Plus 3). ***Also take into account the 3500mAh is a 500mAh is a significant increase over the same dimension Note 5; also Note7 has an even more efficient processor. ***S7 Edge may seem closer in specs to Note7, that's because the cash cow S series has been improved way above their usual standards till S5, where Note series was supposed to be the powerhouse. ***Sill Note7 gets iris scanner, 64GB internal memory, USB-C and some software features above the S7 Edge. Plus larger and comparatively flatter screen with improved S-Pen features. Hence may cost above the S7 Edge. Not(e) enough?
