We sure hope so because phone leaker Evan Blass, better known as @evleaks, is back at it again with what appear to be images of Samsung’s unannounced Galaxy Note 7. This time, the leaked images reveal the entire phone’s front and back, leaving pretty much nothing left to the imagination.
The official-looking renders corroborate many of the previous rumors and reports, several from Blass himself, who has a remarkable history of accurately leaking unannounced devices. Namely, Samsung will indeed skip the Note 6 branding and jump straight to the Note 7 to keep consistency with the S7 and S7 Edge.
The rumored dual curved screen edges are also visible, as per a leak last week.
An extra cutout for the mysterious iris scanner, which is rumored to allow users to unlock the phone with just a glance, also appears to be present on the top bezel. Although the cutout locations are different from the ones @OnLeaks and Android Authority leaked.
The leak also seemingly confirms the phone’s availability in three colors (black, silver and light blue).
With the Note 7, Samsung could finally merge the usefulness of the Note’s S Pen stylus and the Edge’s edge panels, which provide shortcuts to apps, contacts and various other widgets.

Samsung could also shakeup its TouchWiz Android skin with a flatter, cleaner interface.
Rumored specs for the Note 7 include a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon chip, possibly 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (expandable via microSD), water and dustproof design, fast wireless charging and a larger battery.
It’s unclear if there will be any camera improvements over the already excellent cameras on the S7 and S7 Edge.
Samsung is expected to announce the Note 7 in August. Here’s to hoping the hard-hitting leaks haven’t revealed everything.
