Specs leak again for Samsung Galaxy Note 7, with phablet's release rumored for mid-August
The next big smartphone that everyone is waiting for happens to be Samsung's Next Big Thing. We're talking, of course, about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The freshest rumors hot off the grill are here, and while they might not have changed from previous rumors, the more you hear it the more you will believe it. Today's gossip comes from the Netherlands where the info was told to GSM HelpDesk from what it calls "reliable sources."

First, the name. Skipping the Note 6 name and going straight to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 makes too much sense not to do. First, Sammy is instantly syncing the Note series with the Galaxy S line, and is telling many confused consumers that the Note 7 is not an older generation model. While we can't think of anyone we know that wouldn't buy a Galaxy Note 6 because the name carries a lower number than the Galaxy S7, such people do exist.

The latest specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 include a 5.8-inch dual curved edge Super AMOLED display, with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 823 SoC will be driving the device in the states, which will contain 6GB of RAM. The same 12MP rear camera found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be used on the Galaxy Note 7, which means that it will carry an f/1.7 aperture and OIS. And the Galaxy Note 7 will also borrow the front-facing 5MP shooter from the Galaxy S7. The S Pen will come with the device out of the box, and a 4000mAh battery will keep the hamster wheel spinning.

The unlocked version of the handset is rumored to be priced at €799 EUR, which converts into $903 USD at the current conversion rate. The Galaxy Note 7 is now expected to be unveiled on August 2nd with a launch coming in the middle of the month.
