[Update: Iris scanner too!] Samsung Galaxy Note7 confirmed by another report

Multiple reports stated that Samsung might skip a numeral to release the Galaxy Note 7 later this year, and it also being reported that there will be no flat screen variant of the device. Now, a new image has surfaced that pretty much confirms the name of the next flagship smartphone from Samsung.

A new tweet from serial leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks) consists of what could be an official logo of the Galaxy Note 7. It is possible that the South Korean smartphone giant might release only the curved screen variant of the Galaxy Note 7. It is expected to feature a 5.8-inch curved QHD Super AMOLED display, a 12-megapixel primary camera with new features, a 5-megapixel secondary camera, 6GB RAM, a microSD card slot, and a 4000 mAh battery.

Read the blog post: https://goo.gl/9AD0IC

Multi-window opens up a lot of new possibilities, but designing for split-screen multi-window starts with a responsive UI (see our previous video on building a responsive UI: https://goo.gl/mcjKYK). With a few special considerations for the 16:9 layout for mobile devices in portrait and the 34.15% tablet layout, you’ll have a great looking app.

Just know that multi-window is enabled by default - test thoroughly, particularly for exported activities that should always support multi-window.
