The next Samsung Galaxy Note will be revealed at a press event in New York City on August 2, roughly two weeks from today. And, as expected, it won’t bear the name Note 6. Instead, it’s expected to have naming parity with Samsung’s other top-end smartphone, the Galaxy S7, and thus will be called Note 7.
The upcoming addition to the series that started the trend of large-screen handsets has been in the rumor mill for months, and several photos of the Note 7 have been surfacing with regularity lately. The latest of which were pulled from Weibo by French blog NowhereElse.
While it’s difficult to say if the phone in the photos is indeed the real deal, the similarities between it and the Note 7 render posted by prolific tipster and tech blogger Evan Blass on Twitter are apparent.
The device, just like the Galaxy S7 edge, is said to have curved edges on both sides of the display — a first for the series. It’s also expected to come with Samsung’s S Pen stylus and a number of special software features designed to take advantage of the pressure-sensitive writing and drawing tool.
And, in typical Note fashion, this year’s iteration will feature top-of-the-line specs, like the S7 and S7 edge do. The expected specs for the Note 7 include a 2K Super AMOLED display measuring 5.7 inches, fingerprint and iris scanners, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 or Samsung’s own Exynos 8893 chip with up to 6GB of RAM, depending on the region, 12- and 5-megapixel rear and front cameras, and a 4,000mAh battery.
