The design of the Note 7 is copyrighted, just as any other product. To reproduce a likeness of a piece of "art" without permission is infringing (just ask the US Post Office). How accurate was it? Could it be identified as a Note 7? If so, then it's a by right thing - it IS infringing.
Now, Hitman Niko can absolutely pursue this in court by re-publishing on a non-common carrier platform and having Samsung sue him. He may then, and only then, proffer his defense that the use falls under one of the Fair Use sections of copyright law. If the judge/jury concludes, based on the evidence, that it meets the test of fair use, then he will win the case. But he can't claim Fair Use as a right, only as a positive defense to an infringement claim. Copyright law is a bitch.
By that argument absolutely every manufactured object in the game that has a recognizable brand is infringing.
You are an idiot and I'd mod you a Troll if I had points today.
