With Samsung set to unveil the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 next week in New York City at their Unpacked event, there are loads of rumors and speculation popping up all over the internet. The latest is pointing to the launch date for the Galaxy Note 7 in Europe. While Europe didn’t get the Galaxy Note 5 last year – they were stuck with the Galaxy S6 Edge+ – it appears that Samsung won’t be doing that this year. It appears that Europe may be getting the Galaxy Note 7 as soon as two weeks after the device is made official. That’s a pretty quick turnaround for Samsung, and one that would definitely help them sell even more Galaxy Note 7 devices before the iPhone launches in September.
There have been rumors that the Galaxy Note 7 would be going on sale the day it is announced, however that is likely only going to happen in the company’s homeland of South Korea. And that is standard practice for companies and their flagship devices. So that should come as no surprise. There were rumors that T-Mobile USA would begin pre-orders this week for the Galaxy Note 7. Which we now know, are not true. The release date for the US is still up in the air. However it does seem like the August 16th date may be the global rollout date. Similar to what they did with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge earlier on this year.
Rumored specs for the Galaxy Note 7 are pointing at a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with either the Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890/8893 powering the show. As usual, that will be market dependent. Additionally, the device will sport 4GB of RAM, and not the 6GB that was previously rumored. It’ll retain the 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras that were found on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, and the Galaxy Note 7 is equipped with a 3500mAh battery. If the leaks and rumors are to be believed.
Whether or not Europe sees the Galaxy Note 7 available on August 16th, is still up in the air. But Samsung should have more information on this when they unveil the device this Tuesday.
