The Galaxy Note 7 is now practically hours away from its unveiling, as Samsung’s Unpacked event is set for August 2nd. Among other things, that means a much-needed break from the endless stream of rumors and leaks. However, in what looks like a final burst @OnLeaks has shared a motherload of high-quality renders of the phablet.
Judging from past experience, these are almost certainly Samsung’s official press renders, a theory we can only confirm once the Korean giant uploads them come Tuesday. They don’t offer any extra information that we don’t already know by now, but you can’t really beat the level of high-resolution detail we have here. Not only do we get an all-round view, but also the black, silver and blue colors are all accounted for.
Also making an appearance is a render of the new Gear VR headset. If you missed it, the refreshed virtual reality accessory is to accommodate the Note 7, since it is already confirmed to use a USB Type-C connector. However, it will allegedly support older generations as well, including Galaxy S6, S7, Note 4, and Note5. Preliminary info hints at a price of $90, which sounds fair.
Speaking of money, the Galaxy Note 7 is said to cost about EUR 850 on launch. For that you get a 153.5mm x 73.9mm x 7.9 mm device, weighing in at 168 grams. Its hardware includes a 5.7-inch, QHD Super AMOLED display, 12MP camera on the back and a 5MP shooter on the front. For chipset variants, we currently believe there will be an Exynos 8893 version, clocked at 2.3GHz, as well as a Snapdragon 821 version – most probably for the US market. RAM will likely be 4GB as early prototypes show, although there is still the rumolr of a 6GB version floating around. And all that will be powered by a 3,500 mAh battery
Report says Galaxy Note 7 will come with Samsung’s Cloud service.
A couple of weeks ago, it was revealed that Samsung has filed a trademark for something called “Samsung Cloud Together” in Europe, with details confirming that it’s actually a cloud storage service for phones and tablets.
Now, according to a new report, the service will carry the ‘Samsung Cloud’ moniker and will debut on the South Korean company’s upcoming Galaxy Note7 smartphone.
Needless to say, the service will allow users to backup their data to the cloud. This will not only help save storage space on their device, but will also let them access backed-up data from any of the supported devices. Galaxy Note7 users will get 5GB cloud storage for free, the report notes.
