Galaxy Note 7 model number SM-N930FD gets certification in Russia

The Galaxy Note 7 is just a few weeks away, and we’ve been told that Samsung will start production on the device this month. Now, we’re seeing the typical certifications that come with each new smartphone release. The latest shows the Korean giant certifying the Galaxy Note 7 model number SM-N930FD in Russia, giving Russian customers reason to get excited.

The model number SM-N930FD shows the presence of dual SIM slots (as indicated by the “D”), with the “F” ending matching the European model number we’ve seen back a few weeks ago that indicates Samsung will bring the Galaxy Note 7 to Europe, with the Korean giant set to make up for the absence of the Galaxy Note 5 there last year, no doubt). Of course, it appears as though there’ll only be one Galaxy Note 7 model this year (not two), and this Russian model certification certainly matches the model numbers we’ve seen here at SamMobile since back in March earlier this year, with only the SM-N930 model number to speak of (different alphabet endings for different regional variants, of course).

We’ve been covering the usual, expected specs for the device (you can see all our Galaxy Note 7 coverage), but recent developments suggest that 1) the “next big thing” may have the next wide screen, 2) the presence of the USB Type-C port that confirms our own exclusive on the next Galaxy, 3) that there will be three colors to choose from (Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral) as well as an iris scanner on the back to boot. A curved display has been verified by Korea, but new Galaxy Note 7 cases reveal the same design.

Add to these evidences the 5.8-inch, Super AMOLED display with a 1440p screen resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB of minimum storage, 5MP/12MP camera combo with f/1.7 apertures, and a 3,600mAh battery, and you’ve got one world-class device. The Galaxy Note 7 unveil is set for August 2nd, and at that time, all the “Galaxy” will live on the edge.

I do hope they pull the 6″ flat N7 out of their sleeve when the iPhone 7 arrives.

Is there no Exynos anymore ? Earlier i read that there will be either Exynos or Snapdragon

Starting with the Note 5, take away the expected, “small” incremental increases in memory, storage, and processor speed that every iteration should have by default as well as improvements in software that in Samsung’s case are more about showing off than true, everyday functionality and what do you end up with? A device that has “new features” like a fragile glass back (if you can call that a feature), a smaller battery doomed to hold less and less of a charge in a year or two (good things come in small packages?!?, not), and “maybe” a USB type C port… Read more »

“My Note 4 still offers more pure functionality and flexibility than the last two Notes combined” this is impressive Considering there was only one note after the note 4

The new specs of the Note 6.7 are more akin to the Note 5 than the Note 4.
i.e.
Slippery back
Fixed battery
No IR
Smaller battery (3020 vs 3220 N4)
And to add with the N7
No flat screen.
Same screen size, but with edges. So less effective screen area.
SD makes a return fortunately.
Bigger battery again (3600-4000).

Yeah, I got my N910C last year and I love it. It is still a beast of a device even when compared to the latest iterations of the Galaxy S and Note series.

I wouldn’t compare the Note 4 to the latest Galaxy S devices nor the Note 5 for that matter. I had the Note 4 myself and got the Note 5 as an upgrade. The Note 4 was a great device don’t get me wrong but it’s a slug compared the newer devices out there by a hue margin.

Actually I have to contradict you here. Normally all major retailers (Amazon, and others) ditch an outdated product or drop its price drastically when it is past its lifetime and/or nobody wants it anymore. The Note 4 is a special situation however, after 2 years you still find it directly from the retailers still being sold; and for the 2nd year in the row, the price dropped initially to 300euros (in Europe) at the beginning of the year and then jumped back to ~500 Euros when specs of the new Note device was announced – I know, since I was… Read more »

I suppose if you are speaking in terms of pure performance (at least on paper) you could call the Note 4 a “slug”. And I understand that Samsung is in the business to make a profit and if all it takes for them to do so is to abandon the Note’s original lineage in lieu of a pretty face, then sadly the Note 4 will probably be my last one. Those of us still holding our Note 4’s in such high regard, we are used to such slander because if you remember not that long ago, that was the main… Read more »

I guess hold onto your Note 4 as long as you can then because if it breaks you’re screwed XD

I hope the battery capacity turns out to be > 4000mAh and that it also has an IR blaster.

The IR Blaster is history for Samsung never come back. Buy another phone or use the remote control provided.

A remote control was not provided with my camera, it’s an extra cost, and another piece of kit to carry and lose or leave behind.

You can’t control a camera via ir blaster

You can control whatever you want with an IR blaster that supports a IR remote control – photo cameras (for remote trigger systems), climatronic systems, TVs, blue ray players, top set boxes, audio systems, etc.

Buy a proper camera then. 😉 Most upstream DSLR’s have the option of an IR remote.
