Samsung’s recent flagship releases saw better reception than previous offerings, thus the anticipation over its Galaxy Note 7 series. As the company gears up for the launch on August 2, 10 a.m. EST, more details about the device have sprung up, leading many to believe that it could be a smartphone worth waiting for.


Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Release

It’s no secret that Samsung has struggled for the past years especially when Apple performed against it, leaving some of its smartphone offerings in the dust. However, the Korean tech giant appears to be getting its mojo back, as its current flagships have been well-received than previous units.

The good reception also led to many hoping for an excellent Galaxy Note 7. As the launch looms, the rumor mill is going on overdrive.

In fact, GSM Arena reported a new leak suggesting that Samsung will be offering three units of the Galaxy Note 7. The units include Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Gold. However, the quality of the images is not as good as the official renders, so it is not yet sure whether the information is solid. There are also reports saying that the total count of the options is four.

Other specs to expect include a 5.7-inch panel, a choice between a Snapdragon 821 and an Exynos 8893, 4GB and 64GB of storage for the model in the said leak. The report added that memory could go as high as 128GB throughout the Note 7 line. However, Samsung may not be going for the hype train yet as it will not be including a 6GB RAM.  It will most likely come with Android’s latest operating system, but people will have to wait.
