Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could be launched on August 2


New Delhi: Samsung will introduce its latest Galaxy Note 7 and/or Galaxy Note 7 edge on August 2, according to a leaked promotional poster.  The South Korean company has scheduled a Galaxy Unpacked event at the Lincoln Center in New York City.

The leaked image was shared by Sammobile, and it shows details of a Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event on August 2 at the Lincoln Center in New York. It is scheduled to begin at 11am EDT (8.30pm IST). The image also further testifies that the next phablet will skip a numeral, and will be called the Galaxy Note 7. This numbering is presumably done to avoid confusion, and maintain uniformity with its flagship Galaxy S series. The image also hints at the possible comeback of an Edge variant alongside the Galaxy Note 7, or as is more likely, the launch of only a Dual-Edge display model like the Galaxy S7 Edge.

Leaked specs indicate a 5.8-inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 820 or Snapdragon 823 SoC paired with 10nm 6GB of RAM module, 32GB inbuilt storage with expandability via microSD card, a 12-megapixel rear camera and a Dual Pixel setup in the front. Additionally, the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to feature an iris scanner, a fingerprint sensor and a USB Type-C port.
