Samsung’s upcoming new phablet offering, the Galaxy Note 7, is rumored to sport display screen that curves to the sides, just like the South Korean mobile giant’s Galaxy S7 Edge flagship device. Many expect Samsung to launch the Galaxy Note 7 later in 2016 (possibly in August of this year). Various rumors regarding the device have made rounds around the interwebs, but the latest speculation has the soon to be unveiled handset do away with pin straight sides (just like the Galaxy Note 5), and feature vertical curves like those found on the Galaxy S7 Edge, as picked up by tech blog Android Authority and Twitter user @OnLeaks.
Samsung’s most recent smartphone offerings do play a lot with the concept of curves. As a matter of fact, the smaller Galaxy S7 is a bit similar to the bigger Galaxy S7 Edge by virtue of curves on its rear side as opposed to its display screen side. Samsung may be looking to unify its upcoming Galaxy devices moving forward. In that case, choosing to incorporate curves on the Galaxy Note 7 would not be much of a surprise. Still, some mobile users may start to wonder if they need to make adjustments especially in using a fine tipped stylus on the Galaxy Note 7’s curved display screen.
For sure, we will all find out in the months to come. Apart from the rumored curved display screen, it was also reported a few weeks ago that production of the Galaxy Note 7 will start in July of this year. This production schedule should put Samsung in a good position to start shipping units of the phablet by August later this year, as mentioned earlier.
Some readers may be asking: where’s the Galaxy Note 6? Well, the biggest vendor of smartphones in the whole world has outright decided to skip offering the Galaxy Note 6, and proceed directly to launching the Galaxy Note 7. The reasoning behind this is that releasing the Galaxy Note 7 this year would coincide with Samsung’s launch of its Galaxy S7 devices, effectively aligning both “7” devices and newer models moving forward.
Also reported within the last month is the possibility of Samsung incorporating iris scanning technology to the Galaxy Note 7. Most smartphones of today already possess fingerprint scanning tech, but industry watchers believe that iris scanning tech will prove to be a more reliable, and more importantly, safer means of verifying a user’s identification.
