Just when it was almost confirmed that there will be no flat screen versions of the Note 7 this year, but only a single device that will sport a dual Edge display, new photos have surfaced that suggest otherwise. The photos show the device to have a flat back as well, unlike the Galaxy S7 regular, which has a curved back. We can also see the USB Type-C port, connected to a USB Type-C cable. If you look carefully, you can actually see the iris scanner too.
If you like the flat version seen in these pics and would like to buy one, we have bad news for you unfortunately. In all probability, the Note 7 will only sport a dual Edge display this year. While these images prove that the flat screen version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 does exist, it will possibly not be marketed to the public. In fact, this is actually a prototype and will remain only at that stage for now. The curved Note 7 however, is going to be unveiled on August 2, equipped with a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB/6GB of RAM and the same camera setup (12-megapixel/5-megapixel) as the S7 series.

Next time you are using Wi-Fi on your cellphone, or connected to a 4G LTE signal, keep in mind that the person you need to thank for these innovations is an actress who received a patent in 1942 for "spread spectrum technology" that is currently used in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G LTE technology. The actress was born in Austria as Hedwig Kiesler and you might know her as Hedy Lamarr.
Besides her talents as an actress, Lamarr happened to be born with an incredible mind. After marrying one of the richest men in Austria, Friedrich Mandl, she would end up at her husband's side as he would have dinner with men like Hitler and Mussolini. Mandl was the largest arms manufacturer in Austria and the topic at the dinner table would sometimes revolve around radio-controlled missiles and torpedoes.
While pretending to be bored at these dinners, Lamarr actually soaked up the information. After running off to America, she became one of the country's biggest movie stars toiling for MGM during the 1940's. But at the same time, she developed a wireless communication system that couldn't be jammed. Her goal was to help the Allies defeat the Nazis. Back then, most wireless systems used one frequency which made it easy to block. The actress came up with a way for the message to be sent over another frequency if the original one was jammed. "Frequency hopping" was the term that was used to describe the technology.
