What we knew so far was that the Galaxy Note 6 will be released in mid-August, but with a much larger screen and a new name: Note 7. Maybe the information is true, maybe it’s not, but what is certain is that Samsung has tested two screen variants, one with a flat surface and the other with curved edges, just like that of the Galaxy S7, but it’s not sure which model will be approved for mass production. However, a new detail has been leaked, but we’ll tell you more below.
Samsung had a big success with the curved screen variant of both the Galaxy S6 and S7 and we shouldn’t be surprised if the Note 6/Note 7 phablet will have a similar screen. Anyway, until we’ll have more reliable information about the screen size and type, we’ll let you know. However, if what the India’s Zauba website has posted is true, then the next phablet will carry model number SM-N935G, as a metal mask has been imported to this country recently, and it also has the reference “TOP”.
The most important flagships released between 2014 and 2016 had these model numbers: SM-N910 (Galaxy Note 4), SM-G920 (Galaxy S6), SM-G925 (S6 Edge), SM-N920 (Galaxy Note 5), SM-G930 (Galaxy S7) and SM-G935 (S7 Edge) and the mysterious device with model number SM-N935G is believed to be associated with the upcoming Note 6. SM stands for Samsung, N is for Note, 93 is following 91 and 92 (it’s for this year’s model), while 5 is for “Edge”. We don’t know what the role of the “G” letter is, though. However, PC Advisor has mentioned a different model number, which is SM-N930F, and since there is no 5 in its composition, it means that the phablet will have a simple, flat, screen.
In the UK, the Note is expected to cost £630. Some of the rumored features include a new with a new waterproof design and iris scanner, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820/Exynos 8890 processor backed by 6GB of RAM and a 3700mAh battery.
