Samsung will, finally, unveil the Galaxy Note 7 later today. The Unpacked event is scheduled for 8AM PST / 11AM EST, and even though we know pretty much everything about the device thanks to leaks and rumors, Samsung might yet surprise us. Needless to say, the Galaxy Note 7 will be one of the most powerful devices this year, it will pack in the latest and greatest Samsung has to offer, and will be a phablet of choice for many people in the coming year or so. Samsung seems to have a somewhat different approach this time around, the Galaxy Note 7 will, almost certainly, going to be the first ‘Galaxy Note’ device not to sport a flat display. This phablet will, much like the Galaxy S7 Edge, ship with a ‘Dual Edge’ display, but it seems like its display won’t be as curved as the one utilized in the Galaxy S7 Edge.
That being said, we have some good news for those of you who live in India, and are looking to purchase this phablet. The Galaxy Note 7 will be launched today in New York, but the launch in India is not far away either. According to media invites, Samsung plans to unveil the Galaxy Note 7 in India on August 11th, which is only a week away. The device will be launched in New Delhi it seems, though we still don’t know when exactly will the event take place. We don’t exactly know how much will the Galaxy Note 7 cost at this point either, but things should become far clearer later today, even though Samsung almost certainly won’t share the pricing structure for India during today’s event, but we will be able to guess based on the US price at the very least.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to sport a 5.67-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The device will be fueled by either the Exynos 8890 or Snapdragon 821 SoC, depending on the region. The 12-megapixel ‘Dual Pixel’ camera will be available on the back of the Galaxy Note 7, and a 5-megapixel shooter will be placed up front. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come out of the box, with Samsung’s custom UI on top of it. The physical home button will double as a fingerprint scanner, and the device will be made out of metal and glass.
