With Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 just a few weeks away we’re continuing to see a number of leaks showing off more details about Samsung’s next phablet. In the latest images (via TechTastic) we get our first look at what the always-on display will look like on the Note 7

In these images we can clearly see that things have changed with the always-on display since the release of the Galaxy S7 earlier on this year. Rather than simply showing the time and perhaps an SMS notification, the always-on display in this photo appears to show other notifications as well.

In the photo we can see what appears to be notifications regarding WiFi and SIM status, as well as other miscellaneous system notifications. Odds are that Samsung has opted to show all notifications on the always-on display, just like Motorola has done with its Moto Display feature. Support for third-party apps seems likely as the left-most icon seems to be for DirecTV.


Clearly these photos only show off unfinished hardware, likely a prototype. Just like with previous leaks however we can still see the same curved display design and the extra cutouts for the iris scanner.


Another leaked image shows an assortment of front panels for the Note 7 in all three color variants which we saw in renders a few weeks ago. Samsung is expected to officially announce the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2nd at an Unpacked event in New York City.
