The blue version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be called 'Blue Coral'

The blue version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be called 'Blue Coral'
Yesterday, we told you that tipster Evan Blass had disseminated a tweet that contained the official logo of Samsung's next high-end phablet. The logo confirmed that Samsung will skip the Galaxy Note 6 name and will go straight to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The major reason for skipping the number 6 actually makes sense. The manufacturer wants to align the Galaxy Note numerically with the Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship phone.

Samsung was afraid that consumers would consider a Galaxy Note 6 to contain specs that would be one generation older than the specs on the Galaxy S7. The OG Samsung Galaxy Note was launched in 2011, the year after the Samsung Galaxy S was released. Without the adjustment, the phablet would always be one number shy of the numeral used on the latest Galaxy S handset.

As it turns out, the leaked logo did more than reveal the name of the next Galaxy Note phablet. It also showed off the blue color that will be an option for Galaxy Note 7 buyers. And thanks to an application filed last month by Samsung to legally protect the name of that color, we know that it will be called Blue Coral.

According to the latest specs tweeted by Blass, the Galaxy Note 7 will be equipped with a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560, sporting dual-curved edges. We should see an iris scanner and a fingerprint scanner on board along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage on the base model. The same camera combo found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be found on the Galaxy Note 7. That means that the 12MP rear camera will feature an aperture of f/1.7, OIS, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and RAW image capture. A 5MP front-facing camera will snap selfies and handle video chats. The phablet will be powered by a 4000mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could be unveiled during a Samsung event being held on August 2nd. The launch will take place in the middle of the month.

That will be an AWESOME inclusion coming from Samsung, but I highly doubt they'll make such bold move when Windows 10 Mobile clearly isn't ready for prime time. They barely bothered with making Windows tablets until the Surface Pro set the new standard.

Eagerly waiting for this beast to become my second Android Smartphone! Can't wait to start making significant use of the active digitizer in my 100% paperless work flow... Hope it doesn't disappoint.

I'm buying it if it has FM radio. The specs are so good that I'm willing to give Touchwiz a try. I also hope that they do improve over the S7e's camera as I'm not the biggest fan of the sharpening and oversaturated colors.

Oh, and btw, Evan confirmed 5,7" PA.

"I also hope that they do improve over the S7e's camera as I'm not the biggest fan of the sharpening and oversaturated colors." I recall reading that was always an option you could disable if you don't want it...

The antenna pin is grounded on all European flagship models, unfortunately.

"The specs are so good that I'm willing to give Touchwiz a try." Nova erases the majority of TouchWizs' existence. I hard reset my phone the other day & tried to rock my Note 4 stock. That lasted 5 minutes. Now if only I can get my badaboom font working on MM.

I liked the glazed blue on some of Samsung's earlier Galaxy models.

This phone is sounding better and better with every rumor/leak.

That's what they said about the Note 5.

And, based on the tech reviewers and customer satisfaction ratings, they were exactly right.

And it was. They said the iPhone 6 Plus would be the worlds best phablet and Apple was taking its time until it released a perfect phablet, yet in its second and upcoming iteration it will still be way behind the Note series which it tried to copy.

I eagerly wait the next iP7 rumour say they'll introduce "pro" version. I think iPad pro 9.7 would make sense but then in Indonesia you have to pay $200 for the pencil. Comparing with the Note series & it's an easy win for Samsung cuz they simply offer better value & feature (Samsung actually taking their times, makes huge bet introducing huge smartphone while Steve says it can't compete with either smartphone or tablet and make it into perfection). Haters gonna hate.

Blue is the new black.

Or Signature-Samsung?

Yup, midnight blue on my Galaxy S4!!

I hope this is like the bluish black sapphire of the Note 5. That is the best premium looking color ever.

Samsung can make any color as long as it's black.

THE fact is, note has always been just a slightly bigger Iphone. Just slightly different and with a pen inserted (more space). I prefer Note, still, but the facts are clear.

The only thing in common I see is that they are both phones. Other than that no comparison.
