The next addition to the Galaxy Note line-up will be released on 2nd August 2016. It is almost confirmed that the Note 5 successor will be named Note 7 instead of Note 6 to maintain consistency with the company’s S-series of smartphones.
The press invites for the launch event have already been distributed and the official teaser has been outed by Samsung. We already know a lot about the upcoming Note device from various rumors and leaks. Today we are summarizing the most probable configuration and features the latest device will possibly come with.
