While Adreno 530 GPU will take care of the graphics, the phone will come backed by a whopping 6GB of RAM onboard. Camera-wise, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will reportedly sport a 12-megapixel rear-facing snapper with an f/1.7 aperture, in addition to a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies.
The South Korean tech giant has been rumored to release the Note 7 with a maximum native storage choice of 256GB.
