Features of Samsung's long rumoured Galaxy Note 7 has leaked online shedding light on the upcoming flagship phablet.

A user on a Chinese social media platform Weibo (via SamMobile) has posted the spec-sheet of the Galaxy Note 7. As per the listing, the device is said to sport a 5.7-inch QHD (2560x1440p) screen and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS, 6GB RAM, 12MP dual-camera lens, 5MP front camera, USB Type C port and a 4,000mAh battery.

Like last year, Samsung is expected to release two Galaxy Note 7 variants based on SoC (System-on-Chip) — one will house the company's proprietary Exynos 8893 octa-core CPU and another will come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 processor. Both the models will be offered in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storages with option for expansion via micro SD card.

There is no proof to validate the authenticity of the leaked spec-sheet, but most of the features mentioned in the list are in line with our previous reports.

Last week, Twitter spy Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) revealed a really cool feature expected in the Galaxy Note 7, evoking excitement among fans. It is believed that the upcoming Samsung phablet will boast an Iris scanner, which is said to be more advanced than the fingerprint-based biometric technology. This new security feature will enable the device's front camera to scan the owner's Eye (Iris) to authenticate, in order to bypass the lockscreen.
