Samsung Galaxy Note7 launch event scheduled for August 2

The fact that the next Note flagship will be known as the Galaxy Note7 has been one of the worst-kept secrets by Samsung. In order to diffuse any further speculation about the release and the naming convention, the company has now scheduled an Unpacked event on August 2, which will officially mark the arrival of the handset. The event will be held at New York City, while there will be satellite events taking place in London and Rio de Janeiro respectively. We brought you an exclusive last month which pretty much confirmed that the Note7 would be unveiled on August 2, so there’s very little surprise in this regard.

While announcing the launch event, Samsung also explained the reasoning behind jumping from Note 5 to Note7. As predicted, the company wants to keep the Note flagship in line with the S series flagship. This is a logical move and could help avoid some confusion among fans and customers.

Here’s what the company had to say on the matter:

First and foremost though, you might be curious as to why it’s called Galaxy Note7 instead of Galaxy Note6. There are a couple reasons why. First, the Galaxy Note7 will complement our Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and unify our product portfolio. Second, the Galaxy Note7 will minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.”

The Galaxy Note7 is rumored to be packing a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display. While renders have suggested that it might feature a curved edge screen like the Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung is yet to confirm this. Further, the flagship could be sporting 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a 12-megapixel camera on the back and a massive 4,000 mAh battery. We also expect there to be a slew of S Pen related features bundled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

4 GB of RAM? WTF? Just yesterday it was still 6 GB and now it´s 4? I didn´t buy the S7 edge because it didn´t excite me as much as the S6 edge did and delayed the purchase so I could get excited by the next Note but now I´m disappointed. They will really have to show off some software stuff if I´m to buy it.

I am curios, HOW do you manage to use all that 4GB ram on an Android device.And if you had 6GB RAM, WHAT you would do to get to use it all?

You guys complaining about 4GB or 6GB ram clearly have no idea what an android consumes, and what is more important on a device, than its random access memory.I am pretty sure that all of you being so devastated that is only 4GB, don’t do more than surfing on facebook, and checking emails.

Hope Samsung doesn’t not make the same mistakes as it did when it launched the Galaxy S6. Why do you think that the S7 was better with sales. The Note 7 has to have 6GB RAM, 64GB, with options for 128GB or 256GB for internal storage. If not, it will fail as for as sales are concerned.

I believe there will be few variants of the Note7 so the 4Gb/32Gb might be the “Neo” version of it (see Note 3). I want to believe that the 6Gb rumor is not long gone. I hope to see an newer Exynos with this 6Gb RAM and that 64Gb that many rumors agreed with. If that is the case, those 850 euros are quite justifiable. But yes, if the “light” version of Note7 (4Gb/32Gb) gets this price, it WILL be dissapointing.

Looks like SAMSUNG realized their mistakes when they released the S6 (poor sales) and I hope they don’t it again with the Note 7. It needs to have 6GB RAM and start at 64GB for internal storage and have MicroSD card slot.

Until not too long ago it was 6GB and 64GB. Now it is the standard 4GB/32GB with an updated 821 or Exynos processor. And they want to charge 850 for it? Why? Having edges (and thus less flat real estate) is a big downside. The flat part of the screen is allready small for writing, why make it even smaller? Another disadvantage is webbrowsing with a smaller screen and in landscape the edges get in your way. The more I think about it, the more I’m against buying the note 7 if they get on with the edge stuff. Get… Read more »
