Samsung to start manufacturing Galaxy Note 7 in July

The Galaxy Note 7 (as we first believed) has already transformed into the Galaxy Note 7 edge with a teaser to confirm as much, and with early reports that Samsung has been using the “Galaxy Note 7 edge” moniker, the Korean giant has been diligently pursuing the new handset’s production. Now, a report out of Korea says that production of the handset will start in July, with an initial batch of 2.5 million copies made. The Korean giant will manufacture another 2.5 million handsets the following month, resulting in 5 million Galaxy Note 7 handsets available for purchase immediately after the scheduled August 2nd announcement for the next-generation Galaxy.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 5 slightly earlier last year than it did the Galaxy Note 4 (which launched in September). In order to take advantage of early adopters whose pockets are always “itching” for new handsets, Samsung moved up its announcement to August instead of September. The company launched its devices in mid-August last year, but with a date this year that is two weeks earlier than usual, it appears as though Samsung isn’t waiting around for its most formidable American foe at all.

The Galaxy Note 7 will be the first Galaxy Note device to have dual-curved edges, with the single-curved edge Galaxy Note Edge remaining the origin of the edge movement in Samsung’s smartphone lineup. The device will feature a 5.8-inch, Super AMOLED (Slim RGB) display with a Quad HD (1440p) resolution, Qualcomm’s more updated Snapdragon 823 processor, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 32/64GB of storage, a 5MP front camera (f/1.7), 12MP back camera (f/1.7) that’s but one of a dual-lens setup, a 4,000mAh battery, and USB Type-C charging. The Galaxy Note 7 will also feature a Samsung Focus communications app alongside of an iris scanner (now two years in the making) that will be manufactured by Patron. Get ready to “write on the edge of something great.”

Please confirm there will be a flat, Exynos version. This site is raving about the Edge version, but it only adds 100 euro’s to the price and most have no use for it. I don’t want to drag my Note 3 along for another year.

I hope the Galaxy Note 7 will only have one real edge, just like the Galaxy Note edge I owned before my S6 edge, S6 edge plus and my S7 edge. I really miss the SPen and the real edge since I don’t have got the Note edge anymore. The edge on the Note edge was very useful in comparison to the S6 edge and S7 edge.

I wish our UK carriers could stock dual sim card handsets.

I prefer the flat screen but I do like the Edge functionality as well. I got my wife the S7 Edge and that feature works nicely besides its look and feel. AHHH I can’t wait for this, it’s going to be a monster.

I would have said the same except it will have a Micro SD card slot with up to 2tb capacity, that doesn’t worry me any more.

Guessing creates random posts and clicks on your web page. It starts buzz.
To be honest I fail to see what this new note brings to be worth the monetary investment.

Will it compete oneplus 3 ? And if yes then will they give ENOUGH FEATURES AND VALUE FOR MONEY ? Lets wait till 2nd august … coz if we spend 50k+ on around similar specified smartphone like oneplus 3 then we must get double extra features like water proof and ir blaster etc.

The Note series has s pen which one plus 3 does not have also it’s expected that Note 6/7 will have ip68.

Samsung has moved on now and discontinued installing an ir blaster.

I was an unfortunate owner of a Oneplus phone. Bought it in Hong Kong while on business as it was cheap and looked ok, thought I could use it as pack up phone. The screen died a week after I got back to Europe. Then trying to get support I met a blank wall of silence, not a word. not an acknowledgment of my problem. NOTHING! I even called the Chinese head office. Someone said they would get back to me. I had a feeling the guy wasn’t even writing down my details. You will pay $400 for a piece… Read more »

I think you had a bad experience
I had the Oneplusone and now the Oneplus 2, also bought 2 Oneplus x to my younger brothers, these phones are not cheap made, the materials are different than samsung flagship and they are not high end phones, but i would not say they are cheap made or crap phones. You get alot for the money and its worth it.

Just wait until it’s officially announced by Samsung rather than just guessing.
