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

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.

the edge in leaked picture was small i said when they showed that picture…that it’s only edge design but not with edge fonctionnality that’s why you don’t see the G in SM930F

I could care less about the gimmick edge display. Several people that I know have the Edge said the excitement if it wore off in a couple days. It seems that Samsung is so concerned about keeping up with icrap they have lost site of what set them apart from other devices. All glass..not a fan. Love my Note 1,2,3 and 4. Now those devices made Samsung tops..not making it shiny and pretty.

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 think Samsung will publish a flat Version for sure, too. They should know, that there are many People, who don’t like edges on a phone.

I thought that the “F” in the part number designated the Europe model.

Actually the “F” designation at the end of the model number designates that it is a Snapdragon device. I do hope that Samsung will also release an Exynos variant too.

The F stands for international version and that is most likely the Exynos variant. As it doesn’t have to support CDMA bands.

Here’s a thought Samsung. Why not continue down your current path and release your ultra high end Note 7 Edge that caters to the “look good” crowd, that is always by a charger or plug and lives in the cloud exclusively. But then make a Note 7 “Classic” that goes back to the old school design that is much more durable with an updated composite, metal or plastic case, no curved screen, and has ALL the “features” that made the Note line popular in the first place that you have now forsaken to satisfy the fanboys. Other than the pen,… Read more »

But it does not say if it’s called Note 6 or Note 7.

Why has Samsung skipped 6?

I don’t care what they call it, just so long as it’s flat.
