Before everyone headed off for the holiday weekend, Evan Blass shared the world’s first clear press render of the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 from Samsung.
The colors shown in the image are Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral.
The single image of the device in three different colors shows us what the overall design will be like, too. Get a close look at the front of the Galaxy Note 7 and you’ll notice the display has curved edges on the left and right sides. Samsung might just ditch the Edge variant and just fold its technology into a single flagship. This would be clear breakaway from the multi-device strategy the company first implemented with the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and most recently continued with the Galaxy S7 Edge. The “Edge” name would seemingly be dropped from any branding outside of mentioning the display’s design and its related features.

We can tell that, in addition to having the Note name, Samsung’s S Pen is still present on the bottom right. Hopefully it’s not going to face backlash and debate like the one within the Galaxy Note 5 did in 2015.
Finally, Blass’ image does reveal an extra front-facing camera which all but confirms the Galaxy Note 7 will have an iris scanner.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to launch on August 2 in New York City. Invites for that event should be sent out within the next 2-3 weeks, and we’ll be there covering it for you live.
