By now, it is pretty much guaranteed that the Galaxy Note 7 will come with a dual-edge display, and that a flat version might not exist. Other than the cool factor, an Edge screen means a higher price tag, and the Galaxy Note 7 could be the costliest flagship from the Korean manufacturer yet. Our sources tell us the Note 7 could start at €849 in Europe, €50 more than the Galaxy S7 edge.
The Galaxy Note lineup has always commanded a higher price tag than the Galaxy S series, and given Samsung is going all in with just a curved screen variant for the Galaxy Note 7, the pricing shouldn’t really be surprising. Sadly, it does mean that a lot of folks who have been looking forward to the Note 7 could be put off from buying it, or at least be forced to wait a couple of months for the price to come down.
The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to carry specs similar to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, with the addition of features like an iris scanner, a USB Type-C port, a larger battery, and possibly 6GB of RAM. The phablet will also be offered in a new color variant judging by a leaked render, and if the rumors are true, Samsung will take the wraps off the Galaxy Note 7 in a little over three weeks.
What do you think about the Note 7’s price tag, and about Samsung’s decision to not launch a cheaper flat screen variant?
