Samsung Galaxy Note 7 rumor roundup


It is nearly a year since the Galaxy Note 5 was announced and Samsung is gearing up to launch its successor, the Galaxy Note 7 next week! It has even confirmed the marketing name, launch date and teased some of its features. As the launch date draws nearer, there are more leaks on the Galaxy Note 7. Here's a summary of what we know so far on the Galaxy Note 7: 

1.) How many variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 can we expect?

Samsung has been releasing at least two models for its flagship lineup since late 2013 (remember the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge?). At the Unpacked event last year, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 5 alongside the Galaxy S6 edge+. Earlier in March, it unveiled the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Will we see two Galaxy Note 7 models?  

One variant (most likely)

Korean publication Munwha Ilbo reported last month that Samsung will only be launching one model this year and it will be the first in the Note lineup to sport a curved display. Leaked blueprints and renders of the Galaxy Note 7 obtained by @OnLeaks and uSwitch also suggest that there will only be one model and its design is very similar to the Galaxy S7 edge.

Two variants (unlikely)

Chinese social networking site Weibo user Rec2020_Eight claimed that there was a possibility of Samsung introducing a more "Lite" variant of the Galaxy Note 7. This model is said to come with a more affordable price tag. However, the lack of significant leaks and credible images suggest otherwise.
