A new set of images has emerged claiming to show the Galaxy Note 7 from virtually every angle. Although we can't confirm the authenticity of the device in the photos, it certainly seems very convincing. The device being handled looks exactly like we expect it to; essentially a larger, less curved version of the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The images were posted on Chinese social media site, Weibo, and show a device which - although similar - isn't exactly like the S7 Edge in appearance.
While it clearly has curved edges to the screen on both sides, they don't seem as pronounced as the Edge-branded phone. Likewise, the curves towards the edges on the back panel seem a little more shallow. What's more, the corners of the device - while round - are a little more squared off.
Noticeably, there are a couple of angles missing here. There's no view of the bottom edge to confirm the existence of an S-Pen silo, neither is there a picture of the back to show off the camera makeup.
If this is is the genuine article, we expect the Note 7 to retain its slightly square-ish appearance compared to the S-series phones, even if it is a little more rounded and curved than previous Galaxy Notes.

With less than a month to wait until the device is announced, we can expect the number of leaks and rumours to increase. Over the coming weeks we should get a full enough picture of the smartphone that we'll be surprised by very little during the unveiling on 2 August.
So far, rumours have claimed the Note 7 will have a 5.7 to 5.8-inch Quad HD display with curved edges, 6GB RAM, expandable storage, a brand new Snapdragon 800-series processor (either 821 or 823) and will come with an enhanced S-Pen for scribbling notes on the ultra-sensitive screen. It's likely to have the same fantastic camera from the S7/S7 Edge, as well an updated Touchwiz user interface.
The phone is going to be announced on 2 August at an event in New York, and we'll be at the satellite event in London to bring you coverage of Sammy's next big flagship. If speculation is to be believed, it could hit store shelves just two weeks after being shown off by Samsung, which means you could get your hands on it as soon as the middle of August.
