If you’re a Galaxy Note 5 owner, then you remember how impatiently you were waiting impatiently for the release of the phablet. Samsung has launched this device on August 15, 2015 and there are rumors suggesting that the South-Korean tech firm is skipping the flat version in favor of a model with a dual-edge display and which will be released in August under the name of Galaxy Note 7 – in order to keep up with the Galaxy 7 in terms of branding.
Samsung has released its first phablet with a screen curved on one side in 2014 and it was the Galaxy Note Edge, with the same specs as the Note 4. Then, the Galaxy S6 had a variant with a dual-edge screen of the same size, and later was released a phablet version, while the Galaxy S7 has only a phablet with a screen that’s curved on both sides.
In the past weeks, we kept on hearing rumors about some prototypes that Samsung has been testing and now that we’re approaching August, we’re getting more clues that the successor of Note 5 will not be unveiled with a flat screen.
Moreover, it is believed that the screen will be slightly increased, so it will measure around 5.8-inch, but its resolution will be unchanged. Besides the familiar Stylus Pen, the Note 7 could also come with an Iris Scanner on the front panel, and the company that is rumored to supply the parts needed to build it is named Patron.
Other expected features: a 12MP Dual Pixel rear camera with IR focus, a 4000mAh battery charged via USB Type C and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor backed by 6GB of RAM. The phone might make its appearance on August 2, being unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event. Other reports say that Samsung will release a Lite version with a lower-resolution full-HD display and a Snapdragon 820 processor that will be backed by 4Gb of RAM.
