    According to a Reddit thread, a guy who has apparently leaked the specs of the S7 line has leaked the ones for the Note7. In a nutshell, it's basically a larger S7e with a pen, like what a lot of us were expecting. Want some details? Here you go.

    Processor: Exynos 8890/Snapdragon 820, depending on the region
    Memory: 4GB of LPDDR4
    Storage: 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage, expandable via card slot
    Display: 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, slightly curved along the sides, less so than the S7 (Gorilla Glass 5 being possible, though the OP stated GG4. Another leaker said that it had GG5. Take this one with a grain of salt, along with a lot listed here)
    OS: Android 6.0.1 "Marshmallow" + TouchWiz with the Grace UX
    S Pen: New features like being able to translate a word by hovering over it
    Camera: Same setup as on the S7. 12MP f/1.7 Dual-Pixel main shooter + 5MP wide-angle front-facing camera. New dynamic slow-no feature that apparently allows you to slow down specific objects in the frame.
    Battery: 3500mAh sealed unit, USB-C charging port with adaptor in the box
    Iris Scanner: Apparently extremely quick and can be used alongside a fingerprint unlock. IR light turns off after 9 seconds to prevent eye damage.
    Water-resistance: It's there. You can also write using the S Pen underwater. Not sure why you'd do that but it's there.
    Color options: Blue is the showcase color. Sliver and Black will be standard offerings. Gold is probably reserved for the global variant.
    Availability: Pre-orders may begin on August 3rd. Available to all on the 19th of the same month.

    Oh, there's also a new Gear VR and it seems that the aluminum chassis has also been upgraded, utilizing a Series 8000 aluminum alloy.

    Again, take these with a grain of salt, but here's the full Reddit thread if you're curious.
