Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (SM-N930FD) certified in Russia

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (SM-N930FD) certified in Russia
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been certified in Russia, carrying the model number SM-N930FD. This model offers dual SIM capabilities. Not much more is noted about the handset, although the timing of the certification would seem to indicate that Samsung might be planning on releasing the phone for sale almost immediately after its unveiling on August 2nd.

That theory is based on the fact that the same regulatory agency certified the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge two and half weeks after the pair was unveiled. With the Galaxy Note 7 receiving its green light more than a month before it is officially announced, it indicates a strong desire on Samsung's part to have everything ready to go in Russia once the phablet is made official on August 2nd.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could be equipped with a screen as large as 6-inches, if a recent Zauba listing is correct. In the U.S. and China we could see the Snapdragon 821 SoC under the hood, with the Exynos 8893 chipset employed elsewhere. 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM will be inside along with 64GB/128GB/256GB of native storage. The same rear and front-facing cameras found on the Galaxy S7 will be on board the Galaxy Note 7. That means you should expect a 12MP snapper with OIS and an aperture of f/1.7 to adorn the back of the unit. A 5MP camera will grace the front of the phone, and the whole shebang will be powered by a 4000mAh battery.

Ugh, why cant Samsung just put in the Exynos in EVERY model of the Note/S series.

To my understanding its because Exynos is tuned for European/Asian LTE bands and does not support CDMA.

At this point after having a note 5 and snapdragon s7 edge, I'm disgusted by Snapdragon soc. Battery life of the exynos S7 edge is ridiculously good. Heard of people reaching 8 hours SOT. That's crazy. I'm grabbing a Exynos Note7 and won't look back for Samsung pay.

Well considering on S7 edge running snapdragon i tested i had about 6.5 to 7.5 SOT exynos not thats much better. Also exynos trottle a lots more after 15 min of gaming. But hey its okay if you want lower performance for a bit more battery life we all have differents need. right now i got a LG G5 for very cheap ( 350$ canadian so about 200$ USD ) and i get 4.5 to 5.5 SOT and its has a tiny battery and SD820 soc.

Yep and S6 and note 5 have lots of drop calls ect because they dont support all the band correctly in north america.

SD 820 in my s7 edge is pretty damn good to me.

Lots of hater for quallcomm. Also Samsung starting to have cult member like apple. SD820 is more than fine and in fact its better for long session of gaming.

The thing is tho, when a company makes good products, why shouldn't they receive praise. Who makes the best screens? How about soc? Who consistently delivers great camera? Who brought a untethered virtual reality experience with tons of content to the masses? Face it, Apples cult is different entirely. Apple releases a phone and people but it. Period. Samsung releases a phone with the best specs they can find and features you don't just get elsewhere. That is why it seems as if Samsung has a cult following. They put in that work.

Because the dumb US citizens will cry that they are not getting the best from Samsung.

I hope and pray it has a 6 inch screen. Those of us who want a large screen phone would finally have an easy US spec'd option. But i suspect this rumor wont be found to be true. The skinny jeans and tshirts crowd in the west unfortunately rules here and I suspect those of us who want a think 6 inch screen phone will still have to stay with my Mate 8, and the future Mate 9, even though Asia has a plethora of fine options we will never get acess to

I hope it's a 6in as well. The Note series should be a lot bigger than the s7 edge imo. 5.7in is not that big of difference to make me jump from my edge to the Note 7.

My thoughts exactly. Samsung will probably use the Galaxy A9 to appease the 6"+ crowd. Well, if they ever release it in the US, that is.
