Yep, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Looks Like a Swollen S7 Edge

A whole load of appropriately grainy ‘leaked’ pictures of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have been uploaded to Weibo, showing off a handset that looks like it could be the Galaxy S7 Edge’s dad. Unless, of course, the person holding it’s got really small hands.

Samsung this week sent out invitations for its August 2nd launch event (4pm UK time), confirming the phone’s name in the process. A curved-screen model is definitely on its way, but we’re not entirely sure if there’s a flat version coming too.

The company hasn’t spilled all the beans yet of course, but reports suggest the smartphone will be a 5.7-incher, with a QHD display, 64GB of expandable storage and a 12-megapixel dual camera setup. It's likely to be extremely expensive though, and we’ve heard very little so far about improvements to the S Pen.

Brace yourselves for several weeks of heavy speculation. [Weibo via Slashgear]
