New reports suggest that Samsung may not even bother with a flat-screened Note this year. According to South Korean newspaper Munwha Ilbo, as reported by The Korea Herald, “Samsung is not considering launching a flat screen version of the Note phone” and instead will launch just a single phone, packing a dual curved edge screen.
Given that most recent rumors have pointed to a curved screen this wouldn’t be entirely surprising, though Samsung’s decision last year to release just the curved Galaxy S6 Edge+in Europe and not the flat-screened Samsung Galaxy Note 5 seemed to disappoint many, so how the world will take to only having a curved screen this year remains to be seen.
The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to feature a 5.8-inch Q-HD (Quad-HD)display, a Snapdragon 823 SoC paired with 10 nm 6 GB of RAM module, 32 GB inbuilt storage that can be expanded via micro-SD card, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a Dual Pixel setup in the front and a 4,200 mAh battery.
The device is also reported to have a Iris scanner that will allow users to unlock the device by scanning the retina. Other features include USB Type-C port and S-Pen stylus.
We should know for sure what form the phone will take soon, with an announcement expected in early August.
