This could be the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The South Korean firm is preparing to renew its device ‘phablet’ format but the first few rumours suggest modifications and changes…


A small jump for a large mobile. No official confirmation but the South Korean firm, Samsung prepares it’s new smart phone.

The first features broadcast on the Internet, in this case by Evan Blass, a known Twitter user who regularly handles insider information about new releases, suggests that Samsung will keep the size of this device, 5.7 inch screen SuperAmoled with a QHD resolution (1,440 x 2,560), similar to those offered by the version available in the current market figures.

Regarding some details, based on the first rumours the Asian giant is preparing a device of at least a 64 GB of memory, but expandable by using a microSD card, breaking the decision last year that disregarded this feature which clearly was for many users still important despite the rise of services in the “cloud”.

With three colours provided (blue, silver and black), the Note 7 could incorporate a rear 12-megapixel camera and a front 5 megapixel more detailed than the one offered in the Galaxy S7 model that despite reducing the number of megapixels, has opted to increase the quality of it.

One aspect still playing in many speculative terms is the possibility of adding an iris scanner as a method to unlock the screen. Another feature that has been talked about is mounting a Snapdragon 823 processor manufactured by Qualcomm, and a possible RAM that would be expected to come up to 6GB.

Hoping for a powerful 4000 mAh battery, the device, it’s believed, will feature IP68, which means it will be resistant to water and dust. In addition, it would come either directly with the USB Type-C port, the new industry’s standard. Instead of reserving the breaking news for an event like IFA Berlin or the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung might be willing to hold a launch event for the Note 7 in August.
