From the exterior design to the key specifications, every aspect of this smartphone has been thoroughly discussed, analyzed and shared. Not to forget, those leaked official renders, internal modules, case-maker schematics and live photos.

In this post, we have listed down those collated configurations, price, release date and leaked photos for quick access.

Galaxy Note 7 Release Date, Teaser

Samsung will be releasing the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2 at a special #Unpacked event. This date has been confirmed by an official teaser.

Past rumors suggested that two variants of this device will be released. One of them will have a flat screen, while the other would flaunt dual-curved-edge display. However, based on the latest report, Samsung will be releasing only a single device with dual-curved-edge display in tow.

 

Galaxy Note 7 Price

The ?Edge? display is not easy to manufacture. It comes with technical difficulties and hence, the asking price has always been on the higher side.

No wonder, the latest report says the Galaxy Note 7?s base model will?cost ?849 (about $940) in Europe. This price is reportedly ?50 more than the current price of the Galaxy S7 Edge. In the U.S., however, the price ambit could be slightly above the $800 mark.

Galaxy Note 7 Specifications, Features

The South Korean tech giant will reportedly opt for either a 5.8 or a 5.7-inch display, complemented by 1,440 x 2,560 pixels QHD resolution.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 7 will reportedly come powered by the?brand new Snapdragon 821 SoC. It is worth noting that the SD821 is slightly over-clocked than the SD820.

While the Qualcomm variant is headed to the U.S. and China, the Exynos variant will be sold in other parts of the world. For those curious to know the general difference between the power of Snapdragon and Exynos chipsets,?TheBitBag got it covered.

Some reports suggest 6GB of RAM for the Note 5 successor, while others are conservative at 4GB. We believe 4GB might be the final RAM configuration as seen in many benchmark tests. This is also because RAM is not the only component to decide the performance of the device. Hence, the 4GB unit should be good-enough.

Moreover, a reversible USB Type C port has been rumored to be part of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 for charging and data transfer. Samsung has always housed generous battery units in the Note series of handsets and this time around, a solid 4,200mAh cell will apparently help keep the lights on.

Other rumored Galaxy Note 7 features include?IP68 rating, advanced S-Pen, Iris scanner and a?BlackBerry Hub-like Focus app to bring together all the notifications, messages and other communications under one roof.
