Well the latest leaked specs of the Note 7, will feature a 5.7-inch display with a dual-curve screen and a 1440 x 2560 resolution. But an India import-export site Zauba shows that the Note 7 device could feature a 6-inch screen. The model number of the device is SM-N930R4, corresponds with the Note 7, and the device was shipped into India on July 1st for testing from South Korea.

The listing shows that the screen size of the device is 6-inches. This could be an early prototype, or a mistake which means the Note 7 will end up with a 5.7-inch display. Based on the pair of handsets sent to India, we could discover that the Note 7 is carrying a larger screen than expected.

Zauba listing showing a 6-inch screen for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Although this would be a Great suprise, It is very slim. A person can hope!

I'd like that 5.8 but really doesn't make much difference 5.7 or so ....

I would prefer the 5.7" myself, but the way Sammy has been trending lately with their minimalist bezels, a 5.8" footprint would be optimal imo. I also think it would sell better.

The Note4 and 5 are both 5.7 and the Note5 has an actual smaller physical size that is noticeable. The Note3 started the ergonomics of a phablet screen that doesn't feel like a phablet in hand with, as you write, smaller bezel. Samsung has made huge screen size vs ergonomics strides in all Notes after the Note2.

Wow 6"... This better be a beast phone for me to consider that large a screen... The 5.1 on the S6 is just about big enough...

I feel they will stick with the 5.7 or 5.8... They experimented with the large 6+ screens and it didn't go well. I think they've found that sweet spot.

It was under specd and the extra .3" was all vertical that looked like a lot more than a 3rd of an inch. It looked like an iPhone 6S before there was an iPhone 6S or alnost a Kindle

What's funny is how may times have you seen a typo? It could be a human error and were making such a big deal out of it. Guess we all waiting for the official release for the actual specs.
