Samsung will launch Galaxy Note 7 on August 2

Samsung is set to launch its Galaxy Note 7 phablet at its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked Event on August 2nd, reports Sammobile.

Samsung's new 6GB LPDDR4 RAM may debut with Galaxy Note 6 phablet

At the event, it is being rumoured that Samsung may launch either Galaxy Note 7 or Galaxy Note 7 Edge, a variant of the phablet with similar specifications but with a curved edge screen. Samsung recently sent out invites for the event with a tag line 'The next edge is just around the corner' which has generated much speculation among industry experts.

Last month, The Korean Electronic Times News reported that to take advantage of the popularity of its Galaxy S7 line-up, Samsung is naming the next Note device as Note 7. By keeping the nomenclature consistent with its smartphone line-up, Samsung aims to widen the gap between itself and Apple and also wants to capitalize on how highly anticipated the next Galaxy Note device is.

As per latest reports, Galaxy Note 7 will come in two variants, one of which will feature a flat screen and the other a curved one. Both variants will sport 5.8-inch QHD displays with resolutions of 1440 x 2560 pixels. At the same time, prototypes of the handsets are now running a developer version of Android N and may launch with the new operating system early next month. The device may also launch with Samsung's new 6GB DDR4 RAM which is based on a revolutionary 10nm chip and will come with advanced energy-saving features.

Sammobile has also reported that the upcoming Galaxy Note device will feature either a Snapdragon 823 SoC or an Exynos equivalent and may also come with a 4,000 mAh battery and a USB Type-C port.
