Leaked Unpacked invite reveals Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch date

Leaked Unpacked invite reveals Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch date
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, which launched earlier this year at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, have already brought plenty to the smartphone table. But, as ever, Sammy's annual glut of high-end handsets will spawn another chapter with the next Galaxy Note. According to reports, the company will skip the 'Note 6' moniker altogether and jump straight to 'Note 7', which would see the Note draw parity with the aforementioned S series. With an early August announcement also pottering about the rumor mill, it looks like we now have a firm date. 

A leaked snap of an invite graphic shared by SamMobile suggests that the Note 7 will be unveiled on August 2nd. From what we've heard so far, there could be two models of the upcoming Note—one with curved-edge display, and one without. This theory makes much sense given the popularity of Samsung's edge smartphones in recent times, if more for their aesthetic appeal than the debatable enhancements to functionality.

According to the latest info, Samsung Galaxy Note 6/7 will pack a mammoth 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display of a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 and flanked by Adreno 530 graphics, the new Note could boast 6 gigs of RAM under the hood, while the rear-facing 12-megapixel camera may offer an impressive-sounding f/1.7 aperture. Other treats could include an iris scanner, IP68 water resistance, a 4000 mAh battery, and something the S7 duo missed—USB Type-C. 

The invitation lines up with the prediction of reliable leakster Evan Blass, who noted on June 2nd that the announcement was "almost exactly two months away." Set to be unveiled in New York, the new info suggests that a live stream will also take place for fans far and wide to enjoy. 

We'll keep you updated on any further Galaxy Note 6/7-related reports, so stay tuned!

I hope they have Note 7 Active, but I'm not holding my breath.

Have been using my Note 4 pretty much nonstop since I've been on vacation the past 5 days. Downtown Disney, Universal Studios & Islands of Adventure, Cocoa Beach IN the water, Universal & Islands again, Downtown Disney again & Fun World & Daytona Beach. Haven't dropped my phone once & all I'm using is a silicone gel skin. Note Active isn't needed.

I'm hoping for an even bigger battery. My S7 Edge is enough but I want EXTREME battery life. Also, a 5-axis OIS module would be nice.

I hope it will have DAB+ (or at least FM with a native app). If so, I'm definately buying it. Bring it on Samsung!

Please let there be a flat version. Pretty please. 5.8" edge display = 5.4" of flat screen. Essentially, the Note 7 will have a smaller display than the Note 5. Not cool Sammy, not cool dude. After having the S7e... and now the Note 5....I can't ever go back to an edge display. Glare, warped text & images. Drove me crazy.

Agree. I prefer a flat screen. Notes should have flat screen for S-Pen
