Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Edge Unpacked event coming August 2
Rumors and leaks on the Galaxy Note 5 successor(s) have been rampant these past few weeks. Now, a teaser for the official unveiling of the supposed Galaxy Note phablets should be taking place this August 2nd at 11:00 EDT at the Lincoln Center in New York City. The event will likely be broadcast live as well. Like the previous teaser image, Samsung is accentuating the number "7" with smooth rounded edges to suggest that the Galaxy Note series will indeed skip a number and that a "Galaxy Note 7 Edge" is still a possibility. Earlier rumors pointed to a "Light" model with lower specifications and a more affordable price.
So far, we are expecting the next Galaxy Note to have a Snapdragon 823 SoC or Exynos 8890 SoC, up to 6 GB RAM, a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED QHD display, 4000 mAh battery, and IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. It may also be Samsung's first smartphone to carry a USB Type-C port and rumors are claiming an integrated iris scanner for biometric unlocking. The software may be getting a makeover as well judging by the beta program currently open to Galaxy note 5 owners in parts of Asia. Like the BlackBerry Hub, Samsung could include an app called the Samsung Focus for combining email, instant messaging, and calendar into one convenient window.
