Samsung Galaxy Note 7 release date? Circle August 2 in your calendars, sources say

We are roughly a fortnight away from the official announcement of the Galaxy Note 7. Yes, it's really called the Note 7, as Samsung recently confirmed, and yes, it is certain we will be seeing that one on August 2. So far, so good, but what about the market release of the device?

Word on the street is that Samsung might release the device to the shelves the very same day—August 2. Reportedly, supplies of Note 7 units have already been secured.

This might seem a bit far-fetched, but if Samsung's definitely capable of making sure its latest product is immediately available on the market. Reportedly, the reason for this immediate release of the functionality-oriented device is to capitalize on the upcoming Olympic Games that will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The major sports event will be the perfect ground for a successful marketing campaign. As a reminder, Samsung is already establishing a serious presence for the forum - more than 11,000 athletes will receive the Olympics-themed Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, as well as a pair of Gear Icon X headphones.

Of course, raking in profits before Apple announces and releases its next crop of iPhones is also in the cards.

Back to the Note 7, we seem to know everything there is to it. Specs, design, and intriguing features like the iris scanner are all seemingly known. You can check out the links right below to find out what you should know about the Note 7. As far as price is concerned, Samsung is tipped to be pricing the Note 7 a bit higher than the Note 5 - European prices will start from EUR 849 ($938), which likely means that US buyers will have to shell out roughly $800 for Samsung's phablet.

Lol.. True that. Though the iphone 7 line will probably eat up the full note line in a week tbh. Being the better phone is a different story entirely though. Still holding out for the iphone 7 pro.

That's great. Wonder why oems don't take this approach tbh.. Makes me wonder if the Moto Z's executives were drunk the whole time.

Very interesting. Given that this information is true, once they have the live event showcasing the Note 7, will it then be available in stores minutes after? Or will one be able to purchase it before the official announcement? I guess we'll know for sure in 19 days!

Wow why are people excited for this? Its just the same as the note5 with an upgraded ram and improved gimmicks. How can people repeatedly keep buying lies. These are the very people responsible for the existence of so many companies in the world. If people stopped buying lies I wonder what the world would look like.

Why do isheep fall for apples lies. The iPhone 7s will not be much different if any from the iphone 6s.

Why do people get an iPhone simply because Kim Kardashian has one? Why do people like country music? Why do people vote for Donald Drumpf? Why do people like NASCAR? The answer is: to each their own.

I disagree on to each their own. Not saying I am trying to control their opinions but they are taking decisions without knowing the full picture. It is always good to educate and enlighten your fellow human.

I agree that one should get educated and make a decision based on the full picture, but the simple fact is that A LOT of people just don't care to know about phones, which is their choice. People are becoming more and more dumb. They listen to lies instead of seeking the truth. At the end of the day, you just have to better yourself and hope that others do the same.

People are excited because the Note 5 was the best phone on the market, and this promises to be even better than it. Also, because most of what you said was pure crap.

I still think flagships are getting stagnant in terms of new innovation, just newer specs and slightly toggled software

Great question. Ask them: posted on 29 Jun 2016, 09:11 10 7. darkkjedii (Posts: 19901; Member since: 05 Feb 2011) Why not spend your money on what the hell you want to spend it on? I mean come on. posted on 29 Jun 2016, 09:15 4 8. newbey123 (Posts: 555; Member since: 19 Mar 2012) Yeah, I have never understood why people care what others buy! posted on 29 Jun 2016, 09:22 1 in response to #8 10. Ruturaj (Posts: 1294; Member since: 16 Oct 2014) I don't encourage these things. But I can give you probable reason, if sells of note are increased then we can see more R&D on next device (so not bigger S series phone) and if sells fall too low one day they might stop producing note. Second is extreme case though. posted on 29 Jun 2016, 09:24 10 in response to #8 11. kiko007 (Posts: 1039; Member since: 17 Feb 2016) It's simple. Some individuals place their fragile egos into inanimate objects. These individuals usually lack the comprehension skills necessary to acknowledge some people don't see the world the same way they do. People please stop staking your pride on a mobile OS! It is pathetic to do so! posted on 29 Jun 2016, 10:19 in response to #11 19. darkkjedii (Posts: 19901; Member since: 05 Feb 2011) Well said yo

Buy what you want, use what you want, get some cuddy, go to sleep, wake up and repeat.

You stupid, the CPU/GPU has been upgraded more than the RAM. Note5 didn't have microSD slot and IP rating ? The only thing I could hate about the Note 7 are the edges, but Note series are usually way less round shaped than S series, so maybe I'll like it after all.

This isno concept. Phonearena already have the phone, but they won't admit. Anyway, the N7 is not wide like the previous Notes. This is tall and slender, like the S6E.

I'm pretty excited to see what they bring. Water resistant is a must have feature for me personally so I'm glad they are jumping in on it. I hope the rumors of the smallish battery are not true

The Olympics; my first thought. Sounds plausible. It'd be great having my Note 7 two weeks or so prior to my vacation.

Oneplus 3 and mate 8 are sold, hopefully this turns out to be good.
