Galaxy Note 7 model (SM-N930F) appears on Samsung’s website, could indicate non-edge variant


Last updated: June 18th, 2016 at 13:59 UTC+02:00

We’ve seen model number SM-N935G appear in an import listing to confirm that an edge variant of the Galaxy Note 7 exists, and its similarity to the Galaxy S7 edge model number (SM-G935) confirms that it is indeed an edge variant of the upcoming Galaxy Note. At the same time, however, we’ve seen model numbers that seem to indicate one device for all customers worldwide as far back as March and even with a model number list under the Grace codename.

Now, we’ve even seen a poster hinting that users will be able to “write on the edge of something great” — a dead giveaway as to the existence of the Galaxy Note 7 edge as the next Galaxy. All the evidence has suggested so far that the Galaxy Note 7 will indeed bear the edge, but a new leak suggests that Samsung may indeed have a flat, non-edge Galaxy Note 7 variant in the works.

The model number SM-N930F has appeared on Samsung’s website with no details given regarding what to expect from the handset. We know from past and recent model numbers that the Galaxy Note 4 had model number SM-N910, the Galaxy Note 5 had model number SM-N920, so SM-N930 is a clear reference to the next Galaxy Note handset. Of course, until recently, we didn’t assume outright that the next Galaxy Note would skip “6” for “7,” but this is indeed the case.

One interesting thing to note (see what I did there?) with the upcoming Galaxy Note is that the model number at Samsung’s website doesn’t bear the “G” at the end of it, suggesting that this could be a regular Galaxy Note 7, not a Galaxy Note 7 edge. And yet, at the same time, this may not necessarily indicate as much.

Samsung has been unifying its product line to provide marketing clarity for consumers: the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, and the upcoming Galaxy Note 7. To provide even more clarity with the Note line, Samsung may ditch the “edge” moniker for the Note this year so that every consumer will see one Galaxy Note 7 variant instead of two variants.

News out of Korea reveals as much: that the dual-edge design has been chosen for the Galaxy Note 7, without a “tipping of the hat” or possibility of any non-edge variant arriving on the market this year. For now, then, we suggest that you take the possibility of a non-edge Galaxy Note 7 variant with a grain of salt. We’d rather you err on the side of caution than err on the side of surprise — until August 2nd, that is.
