Thelooks to be not only the best Phablet in 2017, but will likely compete for one of the best smartphones of the year. The Note series has consistently become one of the most anticipated Android smartphones on the market each and every year, and the 7 release looks to be no different.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Rumors
Still with plenty of time to go, we’re already hearing numerous. The many concept changes while enhancing all of the top features seen in previous Note smartphones are already looking amazing. If you’re currently looking for something new and innovative, waiting until the 2017 launch of the Note 7 may be something worth considering.
Sammy has been pretty consistent with launching their new Note flagship around the same time, but as another high-end handset from Apple looking to be released around the same time it brings with it new release date rumors. The most consistent rumors suggest a mid to late-September release, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the Note 7 much earlier.
Other rumors include a new display technology making the visuals truly lifelike and camera specs that will literally immerse user’s right into the moment. A 3D display is coming, and we’ve even heard rumors on the possibility of a fully foldable concept. We’ll continue to update you with the very latest Galaxy Note 7 rumors and of course all the confirmations as soon as we get more.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Specs
Thewill be many enhancements when comparing it to the Note 5 and Note 6. The new Phablet will certainly bring more speed, more memory options, larger display, and a premium outer surround that will prove to be a huge difference. When asking consumers what’s one of the most significant aspects of any smartphone, it’s not the visuals, processing power, or the camera, but instead, it’s the durability.
The Galaxy Note 7 is believed to boast an outer casing consisting of an alloy metal composite. While these leaks have yet to be made official, it could mean a nearly in-destructible phone. The display is said to be made of a new Corning Gorilla Glass that will provide optimal protection from drops and other forms of screen damage.
The camera specs are certain to get an upgrade as the rear camera is rumored to feature a 32 megapixels while the front is said to feature a 9 MP snapper. Powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 3.3GHz, 6 GB RAM, and 4200 mAh battery is believed to offer days worth of juice.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Features
Despite the idea there’s still so much time before the official unveiling, we’re already hearing so much on the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 features. Samsung has done a tremendous job with keeping new innovations under-wraps, but they have already publicly stated there’s a foldable concept phone in the near future.
No specific details have been given, but Sammy has already filed for a patent which leads us to expect nothing less, but speculate on which series or if a new Samsung foldable series will be launched all-together. We’re holding out for a foldable Note 7 that will feature bi-level displays that allow for independent viewing and interaction, but no official details are out.
It’s also believed the Note 7 will finally be waterproof, offer premium and faster wireless charging, faster charging capabilities, a fingerprint scanner, and a more responsive eye scanner. The last feature is something that we’ve been hearing is coming, but new details are in to suggest it’s almost a guarantee. With the increasingly popularity of mobile payment options such as Samsung Pay and Android Pay, having the sense of true eye sensing technology will be the best form of security yet.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 concept will enhance all of the top aspects that we’ve seen in all previous models while making the new phone more durable, more secure, faster, and overall, create a much better user experience. Sammy has done a great job of creating a handset that fits well for those looking for a business and/personal use handset, and the multitasking capabilities of the new Note 7 is expected to be even more impressive.
We’re fully expecting Samsung to move to a new metal alloy that will make the new phone much lighter, and much more durable. Rumors on a nearly in-destructible display will help consumers get the out-of-box protection we’ve been looking for. A reported uni-body design will make the battery un-removable, but it’ll be ok with a much larger 4200 mAh battery.
Coupled with wireless charging plus and a rapid charging feature that is believed to provide a full charge from 0% to 100% in less than 30 minutes. For users on the go, the Galaxy Note 7 will be the perfect smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Preorders
One thing that we know for certain is you’ll want to take advantage of preorders as soon as they become available. New Note handsets have sold out relatively quick in markets worldwide, and for those who don’t typically preorder there have been extensive delays. With the huge consumer expectations expected, getting in on early Samsung Galaxy Note 7 preorders may be the only way of getting ahold of one on launch day.
Preorders are done through your local carrier with an official announcement of when and how much to come soon after the phone itself is made official. If the release date rumors above hold-true, then we can expect carriers to start offering preorders around the 2week in September. Some carriers will be looking to bring in a few more customers which may just mean free accessories for those who preorder early.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Release Date
The expectedis expected to be made official at the annual IFA event which is held in Berlin every September. The annual consumer electronics show debuts many top upcoming tech products and the Note 7 is expected to be launched the same day. If this remains true, we could see a worldwide launch begin in Asia around the third week in September 2017.
It’s almost certain those in South Korea, China, Thailand, and China will see the release before other western countries including the US, UK, Canada, Europe and other markets worldwide. It’ll be interesting to see if the new Note 7 will be launched before the iPhone 7s as both will be competing to launch their newest 2017 smartphone before the other.

Early release date rumors on the iPhone 7s has it being released to the general public starting in Asia right around the same time with the larger 7s Plus carrying a similar Note 7 price tag.
