- Samsung has started sending invites for the launch event
- Galaxy Note 7 is being launched globally on Tuesday
- No details on India pricing for the phablet are available yet
While the world awaits Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch, Samsung has reportedly already started planning for the India launch of the phablet. The South Korean consumer electronics giant this week started sending early invites for an event on August 11 in New Delhi.
According to Fonearena, Samsung’s invite simply asks media to ‘block the date’, and though it doesn’t mention the Galaxy Note 7, the company does say the event will see the launch of its next flagship. With just one Samsung flagship launch expected for the rest of this year, it’s fair to presume the company is launching the Galaxy Note 7 in the country.
As we mentioned, Samsung is set to launch the latest generation Galaxy Note phablet on Tuesday, and the company is holding events simultaneously in New York, London, and Rio de Janeiro that start at 8:30pm IST.
At the event, Samsung is anticipated to unveil a new Gear VR headset alongside, apart from Samsung Cloud – a cloud storage service similar to Apple’s iCloud.
Samsung has confirmed its next phablet flagship will be called the Galaxy Note 7, and that it will come with an improved S Pen stylus. The smartphone is expected to sport an iris scanner feature.
As for specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to include IP68 certification for dust and water resistance; Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow; a 5.8-inch or 5.7-inch QHD Super Amoled display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 or Exynos 8893 SoC (depending on the region); 6GB or 4GB of RAM; three inbuilt storage variants – 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB; storage expandability via microSD card (up to 256GB); USB Type-C port; a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing camera, both featuring Dual Pixel technology for better low-light photography, as well as a 3500mAh or 3600mAh battery with fast charging capabilities.
