The Galaxy Note 7 is getting pretty close to being unveiled. Samsung has already sent out invites for their Unpacked event for August 2nd in New York City, where the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to make its appearance. Which means the rumor mill is ramping up, and so are the leaks. Earlier today, the USB Type-C cable for the Galaxy Note 7 appeared. It didn’t have too many surprises, given that it’s just a regular USB Type-C cable, and in white, the same color that Samsung has used for all their cables in recent years. Now the charger has appeared for the Galaxy Note 7. Again there’s not a whole lot of surprises here, but it does show us whether the charger in the box supports any form of Quick Charge or Fast Charging.
The label on the charger does say “Adaptive Fast Charging” which is Samsung’s own form of fast charging, and has been used on many other Samsung smartphones recently. Which means – unless Samsung has another surprise for us – that this charger will charge the Galaxy Note 7 at speeds similar to Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0. In the past, Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 chargers have been compatible with Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charging. And that will likely continue with the Galaxy Note 7. The side of the charger also shows that it is a USB Type-A port. So unlike the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, the Galaxy Note 7 will feature a USB Type-A to Type-C cable in the box, only. And not a USB Type-C to Type-C cable, which the Nexus 6P shipped with both.
On paper, the Galaxy Note 7 is looking like it’s going to be the phone of the year. Sporting a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 or the Exynos 8893 depending on the region, along with 6GB of RAM and at least 32GB of internal storage. With the Galaxy Note 7 featuring a USB Type-C port, that also means there will be a new Gear VR headset announced at Unpacked. Which will definitely be exciting for those that are into virtual reality, and don’t want to pay the price of the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
