New Delhi: Leaks, rumours – they all got it right.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be launched on August 2 as rumoured and the South Korean electronics giant has confirmed the same.
The company wrote on its blogpost, “On August 2nd, Samsung Electronics will unveil the Galaxy Note7”.
With the Note 7, Samsung will be skipping a number in its Note series – i.e. the Note 6.
Clarifying on this, Samsung gave a couple of reasons saying, “First, the Galaxy Note7 will complement our Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and unify our product portfolio. Second, the Galaxy Note7 will minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.”
About the Galaxy Note 7, the company said it was “a powerful instrument for achievement and self-expression, and is made for those who want to get the most from their phones – and their lives”.
“Galaxy Note7 will help people do more in work, at home and everywhere in between. We can’t wait to tell you more about it,” Samsung added.
As per recent leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display with 12MP Dual Pixel rear camera plus and IP68 certification.
