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!
