Two new leaks - including a blurry hands-on video - have shown us what the Galaxy Note 7 might look like and feature.
The Galaxy Note 7 will be a new phablet from Samsung. It is a successor to the Galaxy Note 5, and Samsung has already confirmed it's skipping the name "Galaxy Note 6" in order to line its next device up with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships. Similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge, the Galaxy Note 7 will sport a dual curved edge display. It'll be the first phablet to launch with the feature.
Venture Beat's Evan Blass on Wednesday tweeted a leaked render of the device, and he included some information about it, such as the fact that there will be just one Galaxy Note 7 model, which contradicts earlier rumours about Samsung prepping a secondary Galaxy Note 7 with a flat screen. The curved screen of the Galaxy Note 7 will also be Samsung's latest foray into smartphones with breakthrough form factors.

The Korean company is reportedly developing new phones with foldable screens, for instance. Anyway, going back to the Galaxy Note 7, its newly-leaked render shows off a new hue for the phablet: Blue Coral. We can also see the phone's dual curved edges, USB Type-C port, part of the camera sensors that house the iris scanner, a gold-type frame, embedded fingerprint sensor, and the push-to-eject S-Pen stylus.
The other leak, embedded above, comes from accessory maker Olixer. It filmed the device while testing new screen protectors. The quality of the video is obviously low resolution, but we can still determine stuff like the phone's lack of bezels and the sheen of its sliding sides.
The Galaxy Note 7 will debut on 2 August. Check out Pocket-lint's rumour round-up for more information about the device, including other leaks.
