Samsung is expected to release Galaxy Note 6 Edge (also known as Note 7 Edge) in August this year. Well-known tipsters have revealed the leaked renders and schematics of the smartphone.
The blueprints of the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Edge have been revealed by Steve Hememerstoffer (aka @Onleaks) from Nowhereelse.fr exclusively to uSwitch. The Note 6 Edge is expected to sport a design that is similar to Galaxy S7 Edge. However, it can be seen with additional features such an S-Pen stylus and USB Type-C port.
The Galaxy S7 Edge has a 5.5-inch display, but the Note 6 Edge is expected to come with a 5.7-inch or 5.8-inch screen. The blueprint suggests that the smartphone features a dual-edge curved display.
The area above the display features a couple of sensors. The proximity and ambient sensors seem to be present on the left side. On the right, two black dots are present. Rumors have it that one of them is an iris scanner that will allow users to unlock the device by scanning the retina. The other seems to be an LED flash for the selfie camera.
The Galaxy Note 6 Edge measures 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9 mm. Its dimensions are similar to the Galaxy Note 5 that measures 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm. It is expected to arrive with a dust and water-resistant chassis. Rumors have it that it will be sporting the same 12-megapixel camera that is available on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones.
In the previous year, Samsung had not released the Galaxy Note 5 in the U.K. However, rumors indicate that the South Korean company will release Galaxy Note 6 in the U.K.
Recently, it was reported that the Galaxy Note 6 Edge release date would be set in early August. However, other rumors suggest that the smartphone will be unveiled during the IFA 2016 event that will be held between Sept. 2 to 7. According to uSwitch, the Galaxy Note 7 Edge will be priced at £600-£650 ($870-$943).
