Rumoured Features for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 6/7

The release of the newest Samsung Galaxy Note has many tech-lovers on the edge of their seats. The highly anticipated Android smartphone has, in fact, already triggered a great deal of speculation and sparked a lot of confusion simply over its name.

By default, the next Galaxy Note should be called the Note 6, following the Note 5. However, it is believed that the new Galaxy Note will actually be called the Note 7 so it falls in line with Samsung’s other releases - the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

 

Expected Release Date

Nobody can know for certain but the Note 7 s rumoured to be released early August. August 2nd or 3rd appear to be the most popular dates, following the release of this photo featured on SamMobile.

To support this, a Korean source believes that production of the Note 7 will begin in July.

 

Display and Design

One of the biggest changes rumoured for the Note 7 is the introduction of a dual-edge curved design, similar to the Galaxy S7 edge.

A 5.8-inch display seems highly likely, but there are whispers of the previous Note’s 5.7-inch remaining.  AMOLED and a QHD resolution were suggested by trusted phone leaker Evan Blass, alongside colour options of blue, silver and black.

 

Hardware and Software

Inside the Note 7, it is believed that we’ll find 64 GB of storage (or possibly more), a Micro SD Slot, a Snapdragon 823 processor, 6GB of RAM and a long-lasting 4,000 mAh battery. The device is also allegedly features a USB Type-C port which was missing from the S7 and a IP68-certified water resistant body.

A 12-megapixel dual lens camera and a 5-megapixel front camera are expected to be featured, especially after the praise it has received from the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

 

Iris Scanner

Possibly the most exciting rumoured feature, an iris scanner is anticipated for the Note 7. The biometric device has been rumoured to feature in device for some time and Samsung have recently filed for registered the trademarks ‘Samsung Iris’ and ‘Samsung Eyeprint’ in the EU.

 

Samsung Focus

Samsung Focus is supposedly a new communication centre that operates in a similar fashion to the Blackberry Hub. To enhance productivity, various services are rumoured to be integrated here such as emails, memos, invites and your calendar so you can manage multiple accounts and services from one place.

 

We can never be certain if all of these rumours are true, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long until we find out the truth about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7!
