These Samsung Galaxy Note 7 cases may reveal the smartphone's design
In recent years, it's become rather common to see unannounced smartphones revealed by accessory makers (unintentionally or not). Thus, we're not surprised to discover that, as of today, we can pre-order cases made for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Manufactured by British company Olixar, these "NovaShield Samsung Galaxy Note 7 cases" that you can see below seemingly reveal the design of the next-gen Note (at least partially). As rumored many times until now, the Galaxy Note 7 appears to feature a dual-edge display - most likely, a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD panel. There's obviously an S Pen stylus on board, and it looks like this is housed on the lower right side of the device - just like on last year's Galaxy Note 5. The back of the Note 7 doesn't seem to be too different from the rear of its predecessor, including a protruding camera (likely similar to the 12 MP cameras found inside the Galaxy S7 family), and a heart rate sensor.

As for the Galaxy Note 7 cases themselves, these cost $19.99 a piece, being made out of TPU and polycarbonate, with either leather-like, or carbon fiber finishes. Reportedly, they should keep "your Samsung Galaxy Note 7 safe, sleek and stylish."

At the moment, there's no way of telling if this is exactly what the Galaxy Note 7 actually looks like (though we don't really think that it could look too different, since previously leaked renders showed a similar design). Samsung is planning to announce the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2, and could release it shortly after that. The new handset should be dust- and water-resistant, running Android Marshmallow with a brand new TouchWiz interface on top.

Not that bad

The curved screen is a stupid idea. If I wanted a curved screen, I would just get the gimmick Edge.

Tempted to buy one as an act of 'faith'. Anyone calculate how long, on average, the time between the leak of the phone's appearance in this fashion until the actual device is available to purchase?

Samsung Unpacked will be on Aug 2. You will get your answer then.

I've been following the device's progress. One 'leak' suggested that the Note 7 would be available the day of its reveal; read that about three weeks ago.

My sentiments exactly. Either he's a master of all things riddle, or that statement didn't come out the way he imagined =_=. My best guess is he's disappointed it'll look so similar to last year's Note.

Hmm i don't like dual curved display, it's good for show (i think S7 Edge is the most beautiful smartphone right now), aside from looks it's not really useful it's gonna be more expensive, fragile, and more reflective.

Somehow, I don't feel as excited as I was with s7. The iPhone and the note are both one of the least exciting phones this year, another contender would be xperia X series, so boring.
