There have been a lot of rumors circulating the launch of the Galaxy Note 7. We have already had a look at the smartphone in several leaked live images and press renders. Though one thing has been persistent, that the Note 7 will have an Iris scanner for authentication. Then a recent development also pointed out that it will be dust and water resistance like the Galaxy S7. Apart from that you will have the latest from Qualcomm or Samsung Exynos running the smartphone.

There will be some neat S-pen features as well which we would get to know more about at the launch event. The Note 7 is expected to come in black onyx, silver titanium and coral blue colors.

Samsung also cleared why they went with the Note 7 for the new Galaxy instead of Note 6:

First and foremost though, you might be curious as to why it’s called Galaxy Note7 instead of Galaxy Note6. There are a couple reasons why. First, the Galaxy Note7 will complement our Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and unify our product portfolio. Second, the Galaxy Note7 will minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.
