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.
