It is now almost confirmed that the next Galaxy Note flagship will be marketed as the Galaxy Note 7 and not as the Galaxy Note 6. The confirmation comes from reputed smartphone leakster Evan Blass, who is better known by his Twitter handle @evleaks.
The reason behind skipping the number 6 is pretty simple. Samsung doesn’t want to confuse its buyers by going with the number 6 as it uses the number 7 for its Galaxy S line. While this does make a lot of sense, we do not think it was absolutely necessary either.
Anyway, the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be made official on August 2nd at an event in New York City. Unlike the Galaxy Note 5, the next Note flagship will not be offered with a flat screen. Instead, it will only come in a curved variant, with the ability to use the S-Pen on the curved edges of the display. Rumored specs include a 5.8-inch curved Quad HD Super AMOLED display, higher clocked Exynos 8890 SoC, 6GB of RAM, 12MP rear camera, an iris scanner, and a 4000mAh battery.
