Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be offered with dual curved edge screen only?
The latest buzz circulating about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (as the phablet appears more and more likely to be called) is that the device will not be offered with a flat display. That means only one version of the handset is expected to be released by Samsung this year, and that model will feature a dual curved edge screen according to the freshest rumor straight out of Korea.

The Galaxy Note 7 will be unveiled in New York City on August 2nd, according to a leaked image of the invitation to the event. Earlier this month, we exclusively revealed a teaser that appeared to confirm that Sammy's next Galaxy Note would be given the number 7 in order to stay in sync with the Samsung Galaxy S7. This would prevent the uninformed from believing that the new Galaxy Note model is a generation behind Samsung's flagship handset. But the teaser also seems to indicate that there will be a curved edge display on the device that users will be able to write on, using the S Pen.

We expect the Galaxy Note 7 to sport a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD display. Looking for a 4K screen? You might want to hold out for the Samsung Galaxy S8 according to the latest rumors. But we digress. Returning to the Galaxy Note 7, we should find the Snapdragon 823 chipset under the hood. 6GB of RAM is said to be inside to make the phone a multitasking boss (considering the failure of the OnePlus 3 to fully take advantage of its 6GB of RAM, let's qualify the last statement with a hearty 'maybe'), and the Galaxy S7's 12MP rear camera makes an appearance on the back of the Galaxy Note 7 carrying an aperture of f/1.7.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could be equipped with an iris scanner and/or a fingerprint scanner. Power comes from the massive 4000mAh battery. There has been talk about IP68 dust and water resistance for the Galaxy Note 7 despite that huge opening for S Pen storage.

Assuming that August 2nd is the actual unveiling date for Samsung's Next Big Thing, we're sure than many of you are hoping that the days roll by quickly.
