Samsung is rumored to launch the next Galaxy Note device during the week starting August 15 and the South Korean company might skip over a generation number and name the next device in the series Galaxy Note 7. Now, it seems that the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 will also have an Edge variant, as the device appeared on customs import website, Zauba.
The import listing reveals that the Galaxy Note 7 will be coming with a curved-screen version. However, the information isn’t definitive, considering that the actual phone didn’t enter India, but only a metal mask for mobile phone production line. The model name carries the code name SM-N935G, which is open to interpretation.
The Zauba listing priced the metal mask at $120 and it’s used in the production of integrated circuits for the touchscreen and other parts of the phone.
The current Galaxy Note 5 has the model number SM-N920, the Galaxy S7 is SM-G930, while the Galaxy S7 edge is SM-G935. The logical interpretation is that the SM-N935 is the next Galaxy Note 7. However, there’s still a chance that the SM-N935 could actually be the Lite variant of the Galaxy Note 7.
The Zauba listing doesn’t provide any information on specs for the upcoming Galaxy Note 7, but previous rumors indicate to a 5.8-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution. The smartphone should come with Snapdragon 823 SoC under the hood and 6GB of RAM.
It might also have 256GB of internal storage and a 12MP rear camera. Front camera capacity should reach 5MP and Samsung might decide to get IP certification for the first time in the case of a Galaxy Note series device.
The Galaxy Note 7 could come with an iris scanner and a 4000mAh battery. Samsung is rumored to unveil the Galaxy Note 7 during the week starting August 15, but the date has yet to be confirmed.
