Samsung will unveil Galaxy Note 7 on 2 August, Official invitation goes live

The Korean electronics company has started sending invitations for its upcoming "Unpacked" event to announce the Next Galaxy Note. The official invitation, which you can examine in full below, is minimalist, revealing a stylus (this is the Note brand after all) and "7" to suggest the Note 7 name, confirming the company will indeed skip the Note 6 moniker.
But look closely at the ring to the left. What does that look like? It sure looks like an iris, which matches with all the leaks and reports that say the Note 7 will come with an iris scanner. With the scanner, users may be able to unlock their phones simply by looking at it.

The Note 7 is expected to come with a glass screen with dual curved sides (like the S7 Edge), a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon processor, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD) and a larger 4,000 mAh battery.

Samsung may either go with the same 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras from the S7/S7 Edge or upgrade them to offer slightly better image quality and performance.

The Note 7 will also reportedly be IP68 dust and water-resistant.

Samsung could also unveil a revamped version of its TouchWiz Android skin with a cleaner, flatter look and feel.

Last year, Samsung snuck in a surprise at its Note 5/S6 Edge Plus event with quick tease of the Gear S2 smartwatch. Could the company have a few unleaked surprises this year? We'll find out in just a few weeks.

Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2 at the Samsung Unpacked event. The event will take place simultaneously in 3 locations: New York City at 11AM, Rio de Janeiro Noon, and London at 4PM. You’ll be able to watch the livestream at Samsung’s Newsroom site http://news.samsung.com/global/
