When it comes to smartphone leaks, there are few companies that get quite as much exposure as a result of them as Samsung does. It’s perhaps a blessing and a curse, although many would lean on the former rather than the latter. In what should surprise nobody, an SK Telecom prototype of what appears to be the “flat” Galaxy Note 7 has appeared in its own short film, an 11-minute long look at the Galaxy Note 7 no less. The video appears to have been taken in China, and while it doesn’t show a Galaxy Note 7 with curved edges on either side of the display, it appears as though this is the version of the Galaxy Note 7 that might not ever hit shelves. Still, it does give us one of the best looks at the upcoming Galaxy Note that we’ve seen so far.
The 11-minute long video goes ahead and compares the device to the Galaxy S7 Edge as well as what looks like an iPhone 6S, and shows off the speed of the device opening and the speed of the fingerprint sensor. The device in question does seem like a prototype that isn’t close to being final, as it appears to be a little on the chunky side and there is zero branding on either the front or back of the device. The video is embedded below for those waiting for the Galaxy Note 7 to take a look at and it does indeed give us a look at the Iris Scanner in action, further showing off the software that we’ve seen leak out in previous screenshots.
The video also details what’s on the inside of the Galaxy Note 7, or at least this particular prototype, including an Exynos 8890 CPU from Samsung themselves and a Sony IMX260 sensor for the 12-megapixel rear-facing camera. This sensor was the same featured in the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, as was the Exynos 8890, but it’s important to remember that this is just a prototype, and one designed for the South Korean market. Here, we’re likely to see a Snapdragon 820, and the same sensor, with some units shipping with a Samsung ISOCELL sensor. The S-Pen appears to have been upgraded a little bit here as well, but there’s no telling just how big of an upgrade it’s gotten in this video, which is just below for people to take a look at.
