The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 leaks over the past few months have more or less delivered the complete picture of what to expect. Leaked images showed what the upcoming offering may look like, while other reports reiterated specs that are expected.
The last piece in the puzzle was when would the Korean tech giant introduce the offering to the world. It was then that SamMobile came across an image of what appeared to be the Samsung UNPACKED event invite revealing that the Note 7 could well be unveiled on August 2, 2016 in New York. However, with no confirmation from the company, details could change at any point in time.
On the other hand, the leak is now followed by supply chain details shared by an industry source, as noted by ETNews. Reportedly, the company has already started placing orders for the internals of the device with the suppliers. The device is expected to enter mass production by July so as to be ready for shipping sometime in August, when the Note 7 might be unveiled.
The estimates read out that the company, to begin with, will be manufacturing 5 million units of the upcoming phablet. This directly conveys that the Samsung is hoping to continue with its successful run after the Galaxy S7 series being well received in the markets across the globe. The Note 5, on the other hand, took an entire quarter to reach the 5 million mark, even when it wasn?t made available in Europe.
It is being widely accepted that only a single Note device will be unveiled at the event and it is most likely going to possess the much-loved curved display since the leaked invite read, “The next edge is just around the corner.” Yes, that?s one of the clues along with earlier reports suggesting that Samsung could be hard at work on the Note 7 Edge.
