With the alleged launch of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 flagship just over a month away, rumors and details are circulating. According to famous tipster, Evan Blass, the flagship smartphone from Samsung is confirmed the ‘Galaxy Note 7,’ not following in line with last year’s Galaxy Note 5.

Aside from confirming the name of Samsung’s next flagship, Blass gave us more information on what to expect. The ‘Iris scanner’ seems to be finally happening, after being rumored for years. This lets the device scan the user’s eye for security, which is said to be far more secure than fingerprint verification.

Blass also confirmed a few specifications, much of which we were expecting. First off, the Galaxy Note 7 will keep the 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen of the Galaxy Note 5, with minor tweaks of course. The base model may sport a whopping 64GB of internal storage, also giving you the option to swap in a microSD card for additional expandability. The rear will use a 12MP camera sensor with DualPixel technology. The front will sport a lesser 5MP camera sensor for selfies and video chats. IP68 protection for water and dust resistance seem to be making their debut on the Note series this year, providing you with added durability. The handset is expected to come in just three colors, true Black, Silver and Blue. Interestingly, no Gold model appears to be making the cut.

Remaining details like RAM and processor are still up in the air, but we shouldn’t have to wait much longer to find out. The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to launch on August 2nd, that’s when everything will become official. An early release date may shortly follow.
