Report: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to feature a 5.8-inch curved display and 4,000 mAh battery

The Galaxy Note 7 launch invite was leaked recently, and it is being reported that there will be only one variant of the device, either the curved screen variant or the one with a flat display. Now, a new report claims that Samsung will only launch the curved screen variant of the Galaxy Note 7 (or the Galaxy Note 6), and that it will be released in the Netherlands and other markets in Europe.

According to a report from GSMHelpDesk, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 7 with a 5.8-inch QHD dual-edge curved Super AMOLED, a higher clocked variant of the Exynos 8 processor, a whopping 6GB of RAM, an improved 12-megapixel camera with dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus along with some new camera features, and a 4,000 mAh battery. The report also states that the South Korean smartphone giant will launch the device in the first week of August, and its in-store availability in Netherlands will be somewhere around the second or third week of the month.

The publication also reports that Samsung will release the Galaxy Note 7 with a starting price of 799 euros. Take this information with a pinch of salt as nothing can be final till Samsung officially unveils the device. Other reports talked about the Galaxy Note 7 featuring an iris scanner, an IP68-certified body for water- and dust-resistance, Android N, and a USB Type-C port. Samsung could also unveil an updated Gear VR virtual reality headset along with the Galaxy Note 7.

Lame move Samsung! I guess you don’t learn! Bring back the Note 4 style with better specs! I don’t want glass I don’t want curved screen. I can’t be the only one that feels this way! I tried the the s7 edge and couldn’t stand it! I did only give it a ten day run but it’s just not for me! Went right back to my note 4.

If there is a flat screen model in the States then yes, count me in. If not, bye all.

Arghhhh everytime I hear that Samsung is going to put just a 4000 mAh battery I feel itchy. -Galaxy A9 pro= 6 inches, 1080×1920 pixels resolution, 5000 mAh battery. Snapdragon 652. -Galaxy A9 (2016) = 6 inches, 1080×1920 pixels resolution, 4000 mAh battery. Snapdragon 652. -Galaxy note 6/7 = 5.8 inches and 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution, 4000 mAh battery. Snapdragon 823 or Exynos xxxx. One could argue the chipset is supposedly more efficient but surely it won’t make up for the difference of 1000 mAh especially when the resolution of the Note6/7 is much higher. I just don’t get… Read more »

One could argue that people will find a reason to bitch about just about anything. Note 5 and S7 have crazy good battery life. Note 6/7 has a 25% bigger battery than the Note 5 and S7. That’s going to equate to INSANE battery life.

Yeah, right!!! Wait after a year or little more and you’ll see where that INSANE battery life will be then especially if you are a heavy user like we are all becoming. Battery life wears out quickly because of our increasing dependency  to our phones even if you are not a heavy gamer. Samsung is going to charge an eye and a leg for this phone so we have the right to bitch about whatever we want to. Yes, why not 5000mAh battery on the most expensive phone Samsung will soon release when it’s in a much cheaper one with… Read more »

I have a Note 4 that I got almost two years ago. I game and run much of my business from it. Since the Android 6 update I have zero issues with battery life, even on an extra. heavy use day. I frequently find myself with 20-30% at then end of a grinding day. And fast charging makes this a zero issue “problem”.

The Note is already pushing the edge of what most people can comfortably carry. Giving it even more weight and thickness is going to be a turnoff to many potential buyers.

Really?!! How funny, I’ve got Note 4 too and both batteries, the original and the spare one don’t seem to last as long as they used to and mine is a year and 5-6 months old approximately. I’m pretty sure it will be even worse once they get to two years like it happened with my S3, isn’t that obvious?Also, apparently quick charging (which I love and it’s very convenient) tends to wear out the battery even more.

The solution is easy. Make the battery removable like they used to do. We all use our phones differently. This way, people have options.

I replied to your comment yesterday but for some weird reason it hasn’t appeared yet. “Since the Android 6 update I have zero issues with battery life, even on an extra. heavy use day. I frequently find myself with 20-30% at then end of a grinding day.” So does this mean that you had issues before? Or that you were so lucky to buy the only Note 4 that after almost two years of a declining battery life it suddenly regenerated with Marshmallow to almost new again? I have Note 4 too and both batteries the original and the spare… Read more »
