    According to sources confirmed to have actually handled the Note 7 by 9to5google the new Nexus 7 will come with Gorilla Glass 5. The latest iteration of cell phone glass has already been announced by corning, but no one really thought it would be featured on the Note 7 since it's release was so soon. Gorilla Glass 5 has been strengthened to survive 4 out of 5 drops onto rough surfaces from 5 feet. We still aren't sure how well it will survive scratches. Hopefully it fairs better than the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge which are highly prone to scratching.

    Other confirmed specs include a 5.7" QHD AMOLED display, IP68 waterproofing, 3,500mah battery, Iris scanner, USB Type C, and 12mp rear camera. The phone is said to ship with 5GB of Samsung Cloud storage, and a USB Type-C to microUSB adapter. According to the source T-mobile will sell the phone starting on August 19th followed by AT&T and Verizon near the same date.

    If this is true it would be great. But didn't they start making the Note 7 before the Announcement of Gorilla Glass 5?

    I'm confused...how did we go from Note 7 to Nexus 7? I'm guessing a typo? Although I'd much rather own a Nexus 7 than a Note 7. LOL
