Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Launch Set for August 2
In an unconventional move on Tuesday evening, Samsung reveled that it will announce the Galaxy Note 7 on 2nd August.
Samsung confirmed in a blog post on Tuesday that it will unveil its next-generation Galaxy Note 7 during a press conference next month. The event will take place in New York City on August 2nd, aligning perfectly with a number of earlier rumors that suggested Samsung’s new Note phablet would debut on that date. Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t confirm any other details about the phone or when it might be released.
We know the new phone will be called the Galaxy Note 7 because Samsung told us as much in its blog post. As expected, Samsung has chosen to skip the “Galaxy Note 6” so that its flagship smartphones have the same number in their names moving forward.
Simultaneous, launch events will take place in Rio de Janeiro and London.
Last year, Samsung released the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5. In 2016, the company launched the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7.
Beyond that, the graphic above seems to confirm that this year’s Note 7 will include a stylus, obviously. The company also plans to stream the Galaxy Note 7’s unveiling live so that Android fans can watch along. Beyond that, nothing has been confirmed.
Reports have suggested that the phone will feature a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, 64GB of storage, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, microSD support, a 12-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, IP68 water and dust resistance and an integrated iris scanner.
