Reliable sources from the Netherlands revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will only come in a single variant. The device is said to sport a dual curved edge display and will feature mostly the same specs as the newly-released Galaxy S7.
To be clear, the Galaxy Note 7 is the immediate successor to the Galaxy Note 5. Samsung decided against calling the it the Galaxy Note 6 because some potential buyers might think it’s an older generation device.
With that out of the way, we can now talk about rumored specs. GSMHelpDesk reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have a 5.8-inch AMOLED screen, 6 GB of RAM and an enormous 4,000 mAh battery. It will also come with an S Pen right out the box.
In the camera department, the large-screen phablet will have the same 12-megapixel main camera as the Galaxy S7. The rear-facing unit will include dual pixel technology, optical image stabilization and an f/1.7 aperture. There’s still no word on the device’s front-facing unit, but it’s worth stating that the Galaxy S7 featured a 5-megapixel front-facing unit with an f/1.7 aperture.
According to GSM Arena, Samsung has tapped three companies to supply the phablet’s OLED components. Idemitsu Kosan will supply the phosphorescence blue material, Dow Chemical will provide the red host, while Samsung SDI will be in charge of the green organic light-emitting diodes.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will reportedly enter mass production next month. Samsung will initially manufacture five million units due to release in early August. Phone Arena noted that the unlocked version of the phablet will priced around €800. If the current exchange rate stays the same, US buyers can grab the Galaxy Note 7 for a hair-raising $910.
