Compared to the Galaxy Note 5, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is coming with a fresh design.

This makes the smartphone’s width smaller by about 2.2mm while still keeping the display size at 5.7-inch.

The back is laminated with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and features the same curved edges as the front. This according to Samsung will make handling the phablet easy. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is available in Coral Blue, Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Gold Platinum.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 offers the same 5.7-inch Super AMOLED Display as its predecessor, but like I said earlier the display is now curved at the edges like the S7 Edge. The display offers the same 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution.
