Despite some early rumors that claimed the contrary, it looks like Samsung has no plans to launch a flat Galaxy Note 7.

The next-gen Note phablet is expected to launch this summer, skipping the Note 6 name and going straight to Galaxy Note 7. However, it looks like this new Android flagship device will also drop the classic flat-screen design and will only be available in variants that use Samsung's dual-edge curved display.

According to local daily Munwha Ilbo quoted by The Korea Herald, "Samsung is not considering launching a flat screen version of the Note phone." On the bright side, the newspaper mentioned that Samsung might have a special edition version of the Galaxy S7 flagship in the works. This handset is allegedly themed on the upcoming Rio Olympics.

The next-gen Samsung Galaxy Note phablet is expected to show up in August at an Unpacked event that will take place in New York. If these latest rumors turn out to be true, it will become the first Note handset to feature a curved screen. For now, everything should be taken with a grain of salt, so stay tuned for more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
