Samsung has announced that it is going to launch Galaxy Note 7 on August 2 and has also sent the invitation for the official Unpacking event. The unpacking event will take simultaneously in 3 locations (New York City, Rio de Janeiro Noon & London) and the live stream of the official event can be watched from Samsung’s Newsroom site (news.samsung.com/global) all around the world.
Samsung has also revealed the reason for skipping the Note 6 altogether through the press release stated on their website:
First and foremost though, you might be curious as to why it’s called Galaxy Note7 instead of Galaxy Note6. There are a couple reasons why. First, the Galaxy Note7 will complement our Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and unify our product portfolio. Second, the Galaxy Note7 will minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.
Samsung has not revealed the specs, but the rumors have suggested the new Galaxy Note 7 will most probably come with 5.8-inch dual-edge display just like on Galaxy S7 edge and also suggest that the phone will have 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable memory along with a 12MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera and there is a high chance that the phone will come with 4000mAh or 3600mAh batteries. Wait, there is still more to come. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is supposed to have an Iris Scanner for unlocking the device, IP68 rating (Dustproof and water resistance) and Exynos 8893 or Snapdragon 821 chipset.
A few weeks ago the leaked photos of Galaxy Note 7 have surfaced and have given the idea of the look of Galaxy Note 7 but recently the new batch of photos has been leaked on the internet. The photos have been leaked from China and have shown the new Black Onyx variant of the Galaxy Note 7. There is one more rumor for the variant of the phone and it suggests that the phone will come in two more variants Silver Titanium and Blue Coral.
