[Unpacked 2016] The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is coming August 2

By now, we probably all heard a good deal about the Galaxy Note 7. Leaks have been all over the net about 1, 2 or 3 possible models of the phablet. So far, none of that is confirmed.

Today, the Korean company reached out to US media outlets to inform us about the new Unpacked 2016  event which will take place in New York on August 2nd to unveil the new Galaxy Note 7. Samsung decided to skip number 6 and go directly to 7 this year.

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 Note 7 is rumored to sport the Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM (not 6GB), 3,600 mAh battery, 64GB of internal storage and a new “Grace” Touchwiz UI. As usual, these specs/reports should be taken with a grain of salt until August 2. We’ll make sure to let you know directly from the event next month.

With added functionality of the S Pen and large screen, the Galaxy Note7 is a powerful instrument for achievement and self-expression, and is made for those who want to get the most from their phones – and their lives. Galaxy Note7 will help people do more in work, at home and everywhere in between. We can’t wait to tell you more about it!
