Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been rumored on several occasions to be facing an early release date schedule like what happened with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
While serial leaker Evan Blass came out with information that the phone will be released on August 2, it was based on mere speculations. Still, it was almost impossible not to believe Blass, especially when looking at his impressive track record when it comes to such predictions. Apparently, this urge to trust his instincts was right as the South Korean tech giant has finally confirmed that the Galaxy Note 7 will indeed be here as from August 2.
It was previously rumored that the handset will make its way to the public via an Unpacked event to be held in New York during the first week of August. Well, this happens to be the real truth of the matter as Samsung will for sure be holding an event in the city, with satellite events scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro and London. If you have been following us keenly, this news shouldn’t come as a surprise to you.
Samsung will for sure be surprising the world by coming in with a Galaxy Note 7 as opposed to the expected Note 6 to succeed last year’s Note 5. While the reasoning behind this move has been that the company I looking to sync its numbering system with respect to its flagship lineup, the Korean company went ahead and shed some light on this matter. Interestingly, this is the same reason the company gave out, indicating that the Galaxy Note 7 is one of the worst kept secrets of the tech giant.
Even though we now have full details of the phone’s release date, the announcement came out with nothing with regard to specs and features. But from what we’ve heard and collected from the rumor mills, the phone will keep the 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen used on the Galaxy Note 5. Renders have also pointed to a curved dual-edge handset like the Galaxy S7 Edge, but this is not confirmed.
It is possible that the Galaxy Note 7 might keep 4GB of RAM used on the previous handset, but given the competition out there, a 6GB RAM is very possible. There will be 32GB of expandable storage, although a recent leak claims that the phone will have a base model of 64GB. The camera specs will be borrowed from the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and the battery capacity could rise to 4000mAh, just like what you get with the Galaxy S7 Active. Expect to come across a series of improvements with the S Pen stylus and more.
