Galaxy Note 7 teaser answers the question on everyone’s mind

We here at SamMobile have been bringing you, our faithful readership, details on “the next Galaxy” for some time now, but we were given something of a small market shock to discover that the next Galaxy would bear the number “7” instead of the number “6.” A leak showing the lucky number put any additional questions about its truth to rest. Now, anyone who knows successful marketing understands why this must be, but the next question following the number is the name itself: would we see a Galaxy Note 7 or Galaxy Note 7 edge?

Well, our evidence has shown the Galaxy Note 7 edge for the last few weeks, though we’ve still had a bit of skepticism toward it. First, we’ve seen an import listing that confirms the Galaxy Note 7 edge by way of its model number. A render of the upcoming Galaxy shows a dual edge design, though renders aren’t enough on their own, but a new Samsung patent filed in August 2015 shows the Korean giant is developing a setup where users can write on the edge of the display – hinting that the next Galaxy would be the Galaxy Note 7 edge.

Some have said that patent filings such as these are unlikely to see the light of day, but Samsung faithful have seen this pattern with Samsung before. Just last year, before the Galaxy Note 5 was unveiled, Samsung had patents published related to a Write On PDFs feature. It was implemented into the Note 5 and announced, so Samsung isn’t one to file patents for filings’ sake.

A new leak shows us that the next Galaxy moniker is indeed, the Galaxy Note 7 edge. The leak shows a panel with the light bursting forth from it with the words, “Write on the edge of something great.” Now, we know the next Galaxy is the Galaxy Note 7, but we don’t need any further hints that the upcoming device will, though bearing a different number, bring back the Six Appeal days. It appears as though that edge writing patent will be put to good use, very soon.

The Galaxy Note 7 edge will feature a 5.8-inch, curved Slim RGB AMOLED display with a Quad HD (1440p) screen resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 SoC, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, USB Type-C charging, and IP68 water and dust resistance. Alongside of these familiar rumors, other rumors pertain to the possibility of a dual-lens camera setup similar to the LG G5 and Huawei P9 as well as the implementation of an iris scanner, a feature that Samsung has been developing for some time. We’re also expecting Samsung to bring its Always On Display, 5MP front camera, 12MP back camera (both cameras having f/1.7 apertures), as well as similar accessories as the Galaxy S7 to the Galaxy Note 7 edge as well.

The Galaxy Note 7 edge will be unveiled the first week of August.

Are you ready for the next Galaxy?

I am confused now, should I buy s7 edge or wait for note 7 edge… its so confusing, Samsung always does this to their customers, they confuse them

What’s so confusing? It’s either you want a s-pen or not. Or go with both. Im using s7 edge and note 5

Maybe there is a REGULAR Note 7 device under the wraps. At least there is a Zauba listing for G930, which should be Note 7.

Dunno what rock you’ve been living under but Android’s been 64bit since Lollipop.

Android is available in 64bits since Lollipop, I don’t think the Note 7 will comme with Jellybean…

Well i see different opinions, but im sure more people want a flat version. I have note 4 and s7 edge, and i prefer the screen of the note, i don’t use nothing of the edges because who use with finger print sensor i thing is useless, only mess with the daily usage. I write better in one hand with the note that with the s7 edge and the edge is smaller. When im driving want to make calls or see something when i know i already touch something, when in on bed i hold on the phone is always… Read more »

Can’t wait for the Note 7 Edge

Part of me wants to say “wow, look at those amazing specs! Look at all those wonderful features!”.

But then I realize as an owner of note series phones for the last 5 years that this phone won’t be optimized, have terrible multitasking, frustrating battery life, and is just overpriced for what it does.

So why d’you keep buying them?

Please please please let there be a flat version.

The edges are pointless and they negatively impact the experience.

In my humble opinion 😉

They are making the screen bigger, but curving it. So essentially the same surface area as the Note 5, but with edge functionality. And 6 freaking gigs of DDR4 RAM… #DeliciousOverkill

Can. Not. Wait.

Don’t worry, it will be slow and sluggish. 🙂

You obviously haven’t used the Note 5. I would have entertained that sentiment up to the Note 4 and even the S6 before certain updates, but I’ve had my Note 5 since last August and it has consistently been fast as hell.

A flat version accompanying would be better. The dual edge reduces the available writing area for some professional users. When you writing or drawing you always expect the paper to be more flat rather than curved, isn’t it?

Goodamus

Of there is not a flat version I won’t use Note anymore.
I’ll give a chance to another vendor

yeah. dont wait it because it dont come with flat screen 🙂

Flat variant please. Whether I am writing with a pencil or a stylus makes no difference, I find it awkward to write on a curved surface.

Galaxy edge + Galaxy Note = THE BEST LOOKING/ MOST PRODUCTIVE PHONE EVER! Please bring back the IR blaster! Take my money Sammy!!

Write on PDF is actually also offered to the Note 4 series, as of Marshmallow – I even wonder how you did not write an article about that yet …
Note 7, myea, will see what they will include in that package to make it count – so far except the beefed up cpu (which at least for europe will be krapdragon …) and the iris scanner do not make a big cheer for true Note series users, if it has to sacrifice a lot on the Note’s versatility.

I wish they would put a 12mp camera on the front too

Hope is running an enhanced version of Exynos 8890, don’t really like snapdragon cpu already ever since I tried Exynos 7420.

The Exynos 7420 lagged in really heavy games like GTA and there were glitches.

If there is not a flat variant… Samsung will lose the crown of phablet king as most of the “pro” users need a flat screen to work on. This edge screen is gonna backfire sooner or later.

At least someone is in their senses. +1000000

Very true. The edge is total gimmick.

Glare, warped text and images. A screen that bends away from you. Ummmm no.

Please do a flat as well as an edge. The edge is just so meh.

correct.

I love the S Pen and use it.

What about the infrared inclusion? I am missing that on the s7 edge. It will be good to have ir included.

I hope there’s a flat version Deidre, I use the screen for engineering schematics, right to screen edge, and I use a small plastic ruler around the edges. A curve will be very awkward for me, and removes the functionality I need.

Where the normal note.

No one uses s pen it’s just a gimmick feature which adds $200 extra.

Note without S-Pen? It’s called the S-series.

It not called Samsung Galaxy Series is it.

Its called Note.

Samsung has 2 high-end series. the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note. In each of those 2, there’s more than 1 phone released in the past. That’s why I call it a serie.

So if people don’t want the S-Pen, they’re most likely going to buy an S7 (edge) or the S6 (edge) if their budget is limited.

LegendSmoker

and whats with people wich want s-pen but don’t want the shitty edges?

I wouldn’t own the Note if not for the S Pen.

I’m typing this response right now with my S Pen.

Don’t you dare badmouth my S Pen or you’ll invite my ire.
