The first unofficial renders for the yet to be released Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is out and they indicate that the phone may have a curved dual-edged screen. Shai Mizrachi, who has revealed several device leaks before, took to Twitter to show the render and also give some very specific dimension details.
As per his tweet, the Galaxy Note 6 will have a curved screen on both sides with the device dimension being 153mmX74.5X7.8. The dimensions are only slightly variable from the Galaxy Note 5 that was 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6mm in size.
Another tip from OneLeaks on Twitter, which is the account of well-known gadget leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer, shared a similar render with a much closer look at the design of the Note 6.
The curve screen was introduced through the Edge series by Samsung, which has come to feature various functionality of its own. Users can get notifications, alerts etc from the Edge screen itself and don't have to go to the main screen. This design is just like the Galaxy S7 Edge or S6 Edge, which has the Edge screen functionality, but the Note 6 will get a much bigger screen at 5.8in. Samsung already has a big screen model called the Note Edge but with only one of its sides curved.
Earlier leaks have tipped some specifications for the device like a QHD display powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. Although the device should be called the Note 6 as the last device was the Note 5, some reports have claimed that the new Note from Samsung for 2016 will be called Note 7.
The device is also rumoured to sport a USB Type-C port on its bottom side along with a recent report also claiming that the Note 6 may have an iris scanner on board. While fingerprint scanners are largely prevalent on most flagships today, an iris scanner is still to be spotted on a flagship.
The release date for the device was tipped to be either in July or August, which well known tipster Evan Blass has claimed will be in the first week of August. The device is likely to release in Samsung's home country South Korea, before hitting other markets.
