Samsung follow-up to the Galaxy Note 5 smartphone will be… the Galaxy Note 7? The company is said to be skipping the number 6.

The move means that Samsung’s new big-screened, stylus-equipped smartphone will have a name that more closely resembles the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones that launched earlier this year.

Samsung hasn’t made any official announcements about the upcoming phone yet, but in a series of tweets, Evan Blass has confirmed the name and a few specs.

According to Blass, also known as the prolific (and often accurate) leak expert @evleaks, here’s what we can expect from the Samsung Galaxy Note 7:

  • 5.7 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel AMOLED display
  • IP68 waterproof design
  • Iris scanner
  • 12MP rear and 5MP front cameras
  • 64GB of storage
  • microSD card slot
  • black, silver, and blue color options

You can also be pretty sure that the phone will come with a Samsung S-Pen and while the phone is said to have an iris scanner that will allow you to login by looking at the phone, I’d be surprised if Samsung decided to do away with the fingerprint sensor included in earlier models.
