Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 7 teaser reveals curved edge screen

Alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 7 teaser reveals curved edge screen
Some mysteries related to the next version of the Samsung Galaxy Note phablet have apparently been cleared up, thanks to an alleged teaser for the phablet. The image was sent to us by a source who wishes to remain anonymous. According to his story, he was able to obtain a picture of the teaser. If the image is legit, it confirms that Samsung is dong the smart thing and is calling this year's iteration of the Galaxy Note the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

By skipping the Note 6 name and going straight to Note 7, Samsung would be aligning the Galaxy Note 7 with the Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship phone. Samsung feared that consumers would look at the Galaxy Note 6 name and conclude that it contained last year's technology. In addition, the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus could also perpetuate that myth when they launch in three months.

The teaser is actually a pun that reads "write on the edge of something great." This apparently alludes to the rumored design of the Galaxy Note 7, which supposedly features curved edges on both the front and back of the device. It also could reference new capabilities coming to the S-Pen.
We expect that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will feature a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen, carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 823 SoC is under the hood with a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. 6GB of RAM is on board, and the 12MP rear snapper found on the Galaxy S7 is used on the handset. That camera comes with an f/1.7 aperture.

We could see the phablet introduced as soon as next month with the launch taking place shortly thereafter.

Thanks for the tip!

Maybe because Apple is the copier of the Note series.

True!!!! Apple saying that screens over 3.5 or 4 inches is dumb, the note came out and everyone went crazy and it was a success for years... than the iPhone 6 came out with the iPhone 6 Plus years later. No! Obviously Apple made the phablet, right??? No. I can admit that they made a 5.5 inch phone stupidly huge..

Just a bigger screen that apple and its iSheep kept hypocritically calling an "absurd" idea and everything similar, until apple finally implemented it...

I never called it absurd and I dont care about apple products. Get out of the box. Its 2016 not 3000 b.c.

No, now you instead make stupid statements implying it's a copy of apple's device after apple implements it. For someone who "doesn't care about apple products", you sure give them credit for what they never did. Take your own advice and GTFO.

My device is Samsung Note 2. I also own Samsung Tab S 8.4 w dedicated keyboard. No need for another device though Im flirting with them. As I said, get out of the box.

couldn't agree more with this, Apple fanboy sused to say "I like my small screen those screens are too big" UNTIL Apple has one then it's the best thing since sliced bread, funny Apple used Samsung screens and chips and relied on them to complete their products while Samsung relied on nothing from apple, better screen resolution, changeable batteries and now batteries that fully charge in 30 minutes, memory card slots, waterproof, curved screens, where's apple been ? granted IMac's and Ipod's are great devices but IPhones and IPad's have been drastically obliterated by the competition

of course it isn't a different device...just like the Ferrari isn't a different car than a Model is just better, faster and sleeker....still has 4 wheels, an engine, windshield, steering is what is under the hood and what it can do that makes it better....NOT different...better. I am waiting for Apple to come out with a stylus and claim they did it first.

Apple claims theirs is the first Smart Phone. Because they are not from this World. In this World the Smart Phones were made before the IPhone.

BTW, the Idea of putting an IPOD into phones was Motorola's. Apple took it, reversed the idea and put antennas (phone) into IPOD and called it the smart phone!! Possibly they are referring to their Smartness of taking other's Ideas and and nothing to do with their IPhone it self..

This looks very enticing honestly. If the DAC is good, I may just pick up one of these :D. I wait till after the iPhone unveiling to come to a conclusion, but I can't lie, this seems to be the year Android an Android handset graces my pocket as a "daily driver". Should be fun.

I screwed that whole statement up lol. I was trying to say this could be the first year I use an Android as a Primary (Work/Communcation) device unlike previous years :D.

Give it a try my dude, touch wiz/android is fire. I love my Note, and my iPhone. Sometimes the Note is in the drawer, sometimes the iphone is, and sometimes I use them both in the same day. Think outside the box, and tech the Fk out. Never let these trolls dictate your choice. If you get one, let me know how you like it.

Sure thing. It wouldn't be the first Note I've owned (still got a Note 4 somewhere in my closet) but I haven't tried "the new TouchWiz" yet.

Notes rule bro, they are awesome devices. They have their issues like any other, but man are they good.

Why not pull it out and upgrade. Funny you blast Samsung phone yet own one you're not even using and seeing what has actually changed.

When have I ever bashed Samsung phones? I've owned several dating back to the S4. I may bash the incessant "Samsung is God!" dudes, but not the actual company. I haven't had a sim card in my Note for a year now, so I haven't gotten an update since.

yeah, give it a try.. I'm happy with note4, S-pen have more feature than I ever expected at that time, lol.. but only use it for half year, because I really want S6edge (and later, I exchange it to S6e+ since I miss bigger screen) and I think I'll get this new note if it support daydream (or maybe nexuses, I'm really curious about tango and daydream @_@)

The SD823 version will have the Qualcomm DAC, and the Exynos version will probably use another Wolfson, which is the same as the main DAC used by the iPhone. Wolfson was special back before Cirrus bought them, and Qualcomm DACs are trash.

Ah...appreciate the knowledge :D. Looks like I'll have to hunt for the Exynos variant apparently.

iphone does not use wolfson DAC. Do you have link to this info

The exynos version will probably get a decent DAC, but not the snapdragon version. I would probably pickup a cheap fiio x1 or something, 100USD and a lot better music quality.

Maybe Qualcom can catch up to Wolfson I have a set of APTX lossless bluetooth headphones, and would love for the Note 6/7 to have this tech incorporated in it Qualcomm says that aptX HD is now available in the CSR8675 Bluetooth audio SoC platform, which supports the 24-bit resolution all-around.
