Samsung Galaxy Note 7: All we know right now

In the last few weeks, we have been flooded with leaked specifications, features and images of the upcoming Note device. However, given that the Note 7 is already an open secret that Samsung no longer wishes to preserve, the company will still keep its official specifications list under the wraps until launch day. In the meantime, new rumours suggest that the Galaxy Note 7 will be slimmer than the Note 5 thanks to a new display technology.

As per Phone Radar, the new Y-OCTA film previously featured in the Galaxy S7 Edge under its curved display and helped with touch recognition. However, the film will be attached via electrodes to the glass screen in Galaxy Note 7 and will thus make the display slimmer than those in previous Note devices. 

While speaking with reporters in Seoul, Samsung Chief Dongjin Koh said that Galaxy Note 7 will feature upgraded Note features. This may include modifications in the S Pen and the ability of the device to let users create presentations, detailed drawings and share them with other devices and upload on Cloud. We will be able to tell you a lot more about the modifications once Galaxy Note 7 gets unveiled on August 2 in New York City.

Apart from a slimmer display, Galaxy Note 7 is expected to launch with an IP68 waterproof and dustproof rating, a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 821 SoC, Samsung's new 6GB DDR4 RAM,  a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front cam, 64GB of on-board storage and a MicroSD card slot. You will be able to choose from Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Blue Coral colour options. Sadly, a Rose Gold variant won't happen this time. Overall, the phablet will be a perfect competitor to most flagship phones but given its size and scope, could be more expensive and its pricing might turn out to be a major factor behind its success.
