You may have heard by now that Samsung has finally officially announced its new Note. Yes, officially. No more rumours. Well, at least not when it comes to the Galaxy Note 7.

If you're a Note fan and you've been following the leaks over the past few months, chances are you probably feel as though you already know what's coming in the new device. Afterall, there wasn't a great deal left unsaid or unseen for that matter.

Rumours don't always become reality though. So which leaks were true and which were false? Here is how the rumours of the Galaxy Note 7 compare to the reality.

Rumour: The Galaxy Note 7 will have a similar design to the Galaxy S7 edge with the addition of an S-Pen.
Reality: True, the Galaxy Note 7 is very similar to the Galaxy S7 edge in terms of design. It is a little squarer, a little bigger, and of course has the S-Pen however.

Unlike many devices, the majority of the rumours surrounding the Galaxy Note 7 actually came true.

There were a few that ended up being the stuff of fantasies, such as the huge battery capacity, the idea of curved and flat models, the extra camera features and the substantial RAM claims.

Overall though, we have a beautifully designed device with many of the features that were rumoured actually making an appearance.
