The long-anticipated launch of the Galaxy Note 7 is set for August 2nd, but it appears we won’t have to wait that long for a video sneak peek.
A 25-second glimpse of the new handset has appeared on YouTube courtesy of U.K. mobile accessory retailer MobileFun. The video shows the phone being used during testing for a curved glass screen protector from Olixar.
The handset’s dual-edged screen is shown prominently, as well as its large 5.7-inch QHD sAMOLED display.
The video appears to show the phone’s Silver Titanium colour option, one of three including Black Onyx (one of the standard colour options for the Note 5) and Blue Coral, which was recently revealed by prominent leakster and VentureBeat writer Evan Blass.

The Note 7 is expected to contain iris-scanning technology as an additional security feature, and is rumoured to run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 6GB of RAM, though AnTuTu and Geekbench benchmarks may have revealed an 820 processor and as little as 3GB of RAM.
Additionally, the handset is rumoured to have 64GB internal storage plus MicroSD and UFS hybrid memory card slots, a 12-megapixel dual camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,600mAh battery and IP68 water resistance rating.
