Samsung Galaxy Note7 release date | Galaxy Note 7 UK price | Samsung Note 7 spec rumours

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note7 is being subjected to obscene amount of leaks, and the trend looks to continue till the official release on August 2. The latest leaks include photos and video of the Galaxy Note7 that shed more light on the USB Type-C port, dual-edge display, and the possibility of 64GB as the base variant.

The first leak comes from Sammobile, and it suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Note7 will up its base variant to 64GB of inbuilt storage. A carrier listing screenshot suggests that the 64GB storage option will be the new base storage option. However, Korean Telecom has only listed this, so it is possible that the 32GB variant may be introduced in other markets. However, with the possibility of the rumoured 256GB storage model, Samsung could be the first to rush in the new storage revolution. Notably, the company had in February started mass production of its 256GB UFS 2.0 storage chips, and these are expected in the Galaxy Note7.

Rumours suggest there will be several versions of the Note 7 launching this August, including for the first time a 'Lite' model and an updated Note Edge. According to a source on Weibo, the Note 7 Lite will feature a lower-resolution full-HD display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor in place of the 823, and 4- rather than 6GB of RAM.

We're not convinced, however. The rumours are much stronger around the theory that there will be just one standard Note 7, but with a dual-curved edge, rather than a trio of devices. Plus, if Samsung really is bypassing the Note 6 for the Note 7 in order to avoid brand confusion, and working to introduce a streamlined design across all its smartphone families (even down to the A series - see our A3 2016 and A5 2016 reviews), it wouldn't make sense to suddenly introduce a Lite version. Samsung is known for ensuring its new flagships obliterate the competition in benchmarks - anything but the best won't be worthy of the Galaxy Note name.
