The last few weeks has seen a dramatic rise in the speculation surrounding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7. This was of course to be expected, as in spite of any firm confirmation from Samsung, all rumors were constantly pointing towards an August 2 unveil date. With that date continually nearing, it was expected to see an influx in the number of rumors coming though. Of course, the speculation surrounding August 2 has now come to an end as Samsung did yesterday finally confirm August 2 as the date in which their next unpacked event will take place and the Galaxy Note 7 will be unveiled.
However, that still does leave much room for speculation on what to actually expect with the latest Galaxy Note smartphone and along with a number of contradictory specs, it is now coming to light that there will be a number of software tweaks coming with the next Note. In particular, ones which are designed to improve the S Pen functionality.
According to a report coming out of The Korea Herald today, Samsung President and head of Samsung Mobile, Koh Dong-jin, has revealed that the next Galaxy Note will come with these S Pen software enhancements. According to the details, Dong-jin was noted specifically stating that “We have improved ‘note’ functions this time, upgrading software for user convenience.” Of course, in spite of the seemingly confirmation that there will be software tweaks and new features en route, there were no specific details provided on what those new features will be like or what potential owners of the Galaxy Note 7 can expect from the handset. However, with the software expected to be more Note-oriented than before, it does stand to reason that the S Pen will also likely see some new features or a redesign included as well. So this year’s model might not only be about the actual specs, which might help to explain the contradictions in specs coming through which suggest that the Galaxy Note 7 will come packing only 4GB RAM instead of the 6GB RAM which had been largely expected. Either way, with only a few weeks until the confirmed unveil date, it won't be long before all the details of the next Samsung Galaxy flagship are known.
