When rumors of the Galaxy Note 7 began earlier this year, they painted a pretty picture as far as the specs of the phablet were concerned. From a larger display to 6GB of RAM, we heard it all, until it turned out that the Note 7 wouldn’t be a quantum leap in terms of hardware. We pretty much know all of the specs of the Note 7 at this point, and a leaked picture of the device’s retail box is now offering confirmation of everything we have heard.
The Galaxy Note 7 has 4GB of RAM like the Galaxy Note 5, but on the storage front we get 64GB out of the box and microSD expansion (there might even be a 32GB variant for some markets, although that has not been confirmed). The phone is water-resistant with an IP68 rating like the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and shares specs like a 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, octa-core Exynos processor (apparently the Exynos 8890 instead of an 8893), and Cat .12 LTE connectivity. The screen remains the same size at 5.7-inches, but as we all know, it is now an Edge display and a regular flat-screen version does not exist.
Other specs of the Note 7, which the box doesn’t mention, include a 3,500 mAh battery, an iris scanner, USB Type-C port, the S Pen stylus (which is said to work underwater), and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Stay tuned for more details later today as the Note 7 gets announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York.
