Rumors, rumors, rumors! Every time a new smartphone model is due to hit the shelves, the rumor and supposed truth is there for all of us to see. It is no different with the impending release of the new Galaxy Note smartphone. Recently, Samsung released the Galaxy S7. Now attention is directed to the new Note. Will it be a Note 6 or Note 7? What features similar to the S7 will the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have?
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Rumors:
As per cNet.com, the next smartphone in the Note series will be numbered “7” not “6”. Of course, the Note 5 was released in August of 2015, but it seems that Samsung is skipping the 6 to bring the Note in line with the releases of the “S” range of smartphones. So, August of 2016, will see the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, not 6.
Another rumor doing the rounds is the shape of the screen. Note this comment courtesy of Jessica Dolcourt of cNet.com:
“This year’s version of the Note line, which is known for the power of its digital pen, could ditch the Note 5’s pin-straight sides and adopt vertical curves like the S7 Edge, according to tech site Android Authority and Twitter tipster @OnLeaks.”
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Security:
One of the other rumors is that an iris scanner will be a key security feature of the Note 7. This has been touted as a revolutionary new feature in rumors prior to previous model releases, but Samsung has yet to implement it. Maybe the Note 7 will be the start of something new.
