Date Of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 launch will take place on August 2 in New York, after the South Korean firm sent out invites for the exclusive event.
It had been rumored that Samsung would bring the launch of its phablet forward, and that’s exactly what’s happened with the Note 7 shifted to the start of August.
In previous years we’ve seen Samsung’s Note series launch at the tail end of the same month, right on the cusp of the IFA trade show in Berlin, but now it’s totally removing the phone from any other association.
Pointing to the pen
The invite teases the arrival of the phablet with the use of a stylus icon (a hat tip to Samsung’s S-Pen) and a tag line which reads “7 Unpacked 2016”.
TechRadar will be reporting live from the Galaxy Note 7 launch to bring you all the latest on Samsung’s latest phablet.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 screen
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 screen is said to be large and curvy, with a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, according to phone leaks expert Evan Blass. That’s our best guess too.
Sure, it could get a tad larger. Word from both Weibo and GSM Helpdesk points to a 5.8-inch screen at the same 1440 x 2560 resolution, with the latter also claiming the display might be curved.
We’re hearing similar rumors from another Weibo post, which claims the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have a 5.8-inch screen in both curved and flat varieties. In fact it might be bigger still, as a listing on Indian import site Zauba puts it at 6 inches. Everything we’re seeing says it’ll be big.
Certainly it’s going to fill that space with at least a QHD resolution, given that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is, but our money is on a 5.7-inch screen. After all, theSamsung Gear VR might not be able to fit anything bigger, unless Samsung is shaving off .2 inches from the already thin Note 5 inner bezel.
