It feels as if we just got the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, and now we’re approaching an earlier than expected launch of the Galaxy Note 7. According to a new report, Samsung will begin mass producing Galaxy Note 7 units next month.
We’re expecting Samsung to introduce this year’s Galaxy Note on August 2nd, which is far earlier than IFA (where it is typically unveiled). Over recent weeks, the rumor mills have heated up to the point where we have a good idea on what to expect for all the device’s specifications. However, there are still many things we don’t know for sure about the upcoming device. These include a possible edge design, an iris scanner, and the name (Note 6 or Note 7)?
The news comes from etnews, who reported that Galaxy Note 7 units will go into production in July. Additionally, they reported that Samsung’s plans to start production early means they’ll have 5 million units available for purchase in late August. This will help Samsung avoid stiff competition in the third quarter from rivals like Apple, who is expected to debut a new iPhone or iPhone(s) in the phablet territory this September.
An official release could very well be just two months away. What are you looking forward to seeing most in Samsung’s next Note?
