Image of Note 7 prototype leaks, shows front-facing flash and iris scanner

Following the lead of his frenemy, perennial device leaker Evan Blass, Steve Hemmerstoffer has posted a leaked image of the upcoming Samsung Note 7.

In the tweet accompanying the image, the world’s second best known leaker says the photo shows a prototype of the yet-to-be-announced smartphone.

Besides corroborating the renders leaked at the start of the month, the photo gives us a better look at the front of the phone. If the picture is legitimate, it seems the Note 7 will include a front-facing flash module and possibly an iris scanner.

Since the Note 7 first leaked (Samsung is reportedly skipping the number 6 this year to sync up the nomenclature of its flagship lineup), the smartphone’s specs have leaked multiple times. According to the latest rumours, Samsung’s latest smartphone is expected to include a 5.7-inch QHD display, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (expandable thanks to a microSD slot), 3,600 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 823 processor.

Hemmerstoffer later shared three additional images, two of which can be seen below.
