We know that the next Galaxy Note is coming rather soon. In fact, we heard last week that we were about 2 months out from the Galaxy Note event. Which puts the event around early-August. That also means that the rumor mill is going to be working overtime in the next few weeks, leading up to the event. Many of us believed that this year's Galaxy Note would be the Galaxy Note 6, given that last year we had the Galaxy Note 5. However recent leaks and reports have pointed at it being called the Galaxy Note 7, to bring the Galaxy Note in line with the Galaxy S lineup. Now we have another leak coming our way from Chinese micro-blogging website Weibo, that is giving more evidence to the fact that it'll be the Galaxy Note 7.
The image you see above was posted on Weibo, and states "The Next Note" and has a "7" above it. Now there's no Samsung logo, or even a mention of "Galaxy" anywhere on this image. So it is very possible that this is a fake image, or one that someone put together in Photoshop or Paint. Which means we'll be taking it with a grain of salt, as we should with any leak these days. But given the other leaks and rumors we've seen lately, it doesn't appear to be that far off.
Samsung is looking to put out the Galaxy Note 7 ahead of the new iPhone release in September. It's something they did last year, and it worked out well for them. Many have wondered whether we might see two devices launch in August from Samsung. However, many of the famous leakers out there are saying that there is only one device that will be debuting in August. Which is the Galaxy Note 7. That means no Galaxy S7 Edge+ nor a Galaxy Note 7 Edge. Samsung dabbled in making a Edge version of the Galaxy Note 4 back in 2014, but since then they have kept that to the Galaxy S line. It looks like Samsung has cut back this year, whether that be due to saturating the market, or another reason, we'll likely never know. We should know more on the Galaxy Note 7 fairly soon though.
