In the recent past, many photo leaks showcased a slew of?press renders, case-maker?s version of schematics and internal modules of the upcoming Galaxy Note 7. The latest one, on the other hand, shows an actual device.

Samsung?s Galaxy Note 7 photos attached below reportedly shows the actual smartphone in flesh and blood, while the image on the right side shows the supposed-to-be official press render. It is quite easy to say both images look the same. The leaked photo and a set of configurations, belonging to the variant ?SM-N930F,? were shared by Netherlands-based portal?Techtastic.

Going by the leaked photo, the sensor array mounted at the top of the device, near the logo, shows three different lenses in various shapes. This is reportedly required for the Galaxy Note 7 to meet the needs of the rumored iris scanner. In fact, both live photo and press render share the same lenses and location.

To top it off, the edges of the Note 7 are curved, pointing to the possibility of a curved-display for the phablet. Past rumors also suggested that Samsung might release two variants of the Note device this year. One of them will carry a flat screen, while the other will feature a curved-display.
