The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was announced back in August last year. This is still the company’s flagship phablet, at least until its successor arrives. Speaking of which, the next ‘Galaxy Note’ phablet will be called the Galaxy Note 7, at least according to various reports that have been arriving lately. The company allegedly plans to ditch the Galaxy Note 6 naming in order to bring the ‘Galaxy Note’ series to the ‘Galaxy S’ level (S7 and Note 7 instead of S7 and Note 6). Anyhow, we’ve been seeing some Galaxy Note 7 rumors and leaks lately, even the company’s new TouchWiz UI variant leaked in a video quite recently.
That being said, a new Galaxy Note 7-related rumor just surfaced, and it comes from the Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin. He claims that the Galaxy Note 7 will ship with a 3,600mAH battery, and that the device will be able to squeeze out 20 hours of video playback despite that. Now, he has also mentioned that the Galaxy Note 7 will launch on August 2nd during the company's next Unpacked event. As it usually goes with such rumors, you should take this particular piece of info with a grain of salt, as we cannot confirm it. Do keep in mind that Eldar Murtazin’s predictions are rather uneven, so it could go either way basically.
Chances are that the Galaxy Note 7 will resemble the Galaxy S7 devices in terms of the design, though rumors say that the company plans to release only the ‘Edge’ variant of the Galaxy Note 7, which is quite interesting. This essentially means that we’ll only get a variant of this phablet with a curved display on both sides, which might not be the best idea by Samsung considering that many people still enjoy regular displays, and Galaxy S7’s sales numbers prove that. The Galaxy Note 7 will certainly ship with a new and improved S Pen stylus, and you can expect this phablet to be made out of metal and glass. The company’s Exynos 8890 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel the Galaxy Note 7, and chances are Samsung will also release the Snapdragon 820 / 821-powered variant of their new phablet. The Galaxy Note 7 will ship with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM on the inside (the second option is more viable), and you can expect quick charging here, as well as (quick) wireless charging, same as in the Galaxy S7 devices.
