Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be officially unveiled on August 2nd


Samsung will unveil the latest version of its flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2nd.

The South Korean tech giant has begun sending out invitations to an exclusive event, which bear a silhouette of the Note’s trademark Stylus.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note devices are famous for their large screens and built in stylus.

Samsung is now expected to release the Note 7 just before Apple releases the iPhone 7, which is expected to be unveiled in September.

Samsung will be hoping that launching the new device before Apple will give them the lead on its Cupertino based rival.

Earlier this week a series of images which claim to be of the Note 7 were leaked online, which shows the device available in three colours: Blue Coral, Black Onyx and Silver Titanium.

Another set of photos release on Wednesday from a Chinese tech site showed a working Galaxy Note 7 with what looked be an iris scanner.

It is also widely rumoured that the Note 7 may include some pretty impressive translation features, with a new dictionary and speaking service enabling the quick translation of words.

The Galaxy Note 7 is believed to include Android Nougat, the newest version of Google’s mobile operating system.
