Samsung is expected to launch the next-generation Galaxy Note in the coming months, but it would be dubbed as Galaxy Note 7 instead of Galaxy Note 6.
The big change is due to an attempt to match the Note series naming with Galaxy S-series and Galaxy S7.
The latest leak suggests that the new Note will have an iris scanner, and if this rumor is to be believed, then it would be the first smartphone to have the feature in Samsung’s lineup.
According to Zauba listing, Samsung has shipped 200 units of iris scanners to India, and lately, the South Korean company has launched the Galaxy Beta program. Reports also stated that the company might be testing the feature internally before launching it officially.
Since Samsung has not confirmed any details regarding the upcoming Note phablet, this leak should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Another report suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will have a 4K UHD display as it will only have a 5.5-inch screen with the same 4K UHD resolution, notes Korea Herald.
NDTV reports that an official from UBI Research lab has stated, “Samsung Display showcased a 5.5 ultra-high definition 4K display with a pixel density of 806 ppi for virtual reality devices at the Society for Information Display, a display trade show, in California in March.”
Other features expected to be included in the production yield rate for the next-generation display will have 5.5-inch AMOLED display and would be named as the next Galaxy smartphone, presumably, the S8.
Another listing from Zauba cited that Samsung is planning to introduce the successor to the Galaxy Folder flips smartphone soon. As per reports from GSM Dome, the handset is codenamed SM-G1600, and it has been seen on the Zauba listing. However, no other details could be deciphered from the import/export listing of Zauba.
