Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Launch Tipped for August 2

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Launch Tipped for August 2
  • A Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event could be held on August 2.
  • The next Note phablet could be called the Galaxy Note 7.
  • An Edge variant also tipped alongside.

Samsung has been rumoured to unveil the next Galaxy Note earlier than usual to fend off iPhone competition this year, just as it did last year. Now, a fresh image leak further testifies to the rumour, and hints that the company may be holding an event as soon as August 2 to unveil the phablet in the market.

The leaked image was shared by Sammobile, and it shows details of a Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event on August 2 at the Lincoln Center in New York. It is scheduled to begin at 11am EDT (8.30pm IST). The image also further testifies that the next phablet will skip a numeral, and will be called the Galaxy Note 7. This numbering is presumably done to avoid confusion, and maintain uniformity with its flagship Galaxy S series. The image also hints at the possible comeback of an Edge variant alongside the Galaxy Note 7, or as is more likely, the launch of only an Dual-Edge display model like the Galaxy S7 Edge.


Samsung had left out the Edge variant with the Galaxy Note 5 last year due to S Pen technical issues.

Leaked specs indicate a 5.8-inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 820 or Snapdragon 823 SoC paired with 10nm 6GB of RAM module, 32GB inbuilt storage with expandability via microSD card, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and a Dual Pixel setup in the front. Additionally, the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to feature an iris scanner, a fingerprint sensor, and a USB Type-C port.
