We have seen quite a few rumors about the upcoming device in the Galaxy Note lineup. One of the major rumor is that it would be called the Galaxy Note 7 to match up the series with Galaxy S series (S7, S7 edge, and S7 Active). Now, we’ve received information suggesting that the Galaxy Note 7 with a curved edge screen would be unveiled at the next Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event. Samsung will reportedly host one of its famous Unpacked events (where it usually announces new Galaxy S or Galaxy Note handsets) on 2nd August, 2016.
According to an image that we’ve received, Samsung might unveil either the Galaxy Note 7 or Galaxy Note 7 edge on August 2, 2016, at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York. As you can see in the image, five curved lines might be pointing towards the number 7 ( actually making Z, but Z is meaningless in Note & EDGE series ), the Galaxy Note 7′s name and “The next edge is just around the corner” phrase suggests that it could be the Galaxy Note 7 edge. This would bring its numbering in sync with the Galaxy S 7 and S 7 edge.
Of course, for now, Samsung isnt confirming anything regarding its next-generation Note. On Samsung website and import listings, some new model numbers are found like SM-N935G, SM-N935 and SM-N930F. SM-N930F, which has a UA Profile page which is unfortunately devoid of any information about the features and specs of the upcoming Note. Basically, the pages existence confirms only the fact that Samsung is working on a device with the model number SM-N930F. Nevertheless, it makes perfect sense for the SM-N930 to be the Note 7 / Note 6 and SM-N935 for the Note 7 edge. Becuase from our past knowledge we know the Galaxy Note 5 has the model number SM-N920, the Note 4 is the SM-N910, and so on.
We expect that only one Galaxy Note handset will be unveiled by Samsung this August. The upcoming flagship is rumored to feature a 5.8-inch QHD curved edge display, a Snapdragon 823 SoC with 6 GB RAM onboard or an equivalent Exynos chipset, an iris scanner, IP68-certified water-resistant body, a USB Type-C port, and a 4,000 mAh battery. New Galaxy Note 7 would come with a BlackBerry Hub-like Samsung Focus app for enhanced productivity.
Some news out of Korea reveals that dual edge design is chosen for the Note 7. Samsung may release only one variant of the new Note device finally. Wait for the August and see. Samsung is facing competition from devices like OnePlus 3 and Le 2 max, so Samsung may soon release a new device.
