Samsung looks set to launch its much–hyped Galaxy Note 7 Edge (the phone initially thought to be dubbed the Note 6) as soon as August 2nd, after an invite to a special launch event in New York leaked online.
The invitation suggests that Korean giant is holding a major press briefing at the city’s Lincoln Center and features five curved stripes, designed to look like the number 7, and the tagline ‘The next edge is just around the corner’.
Until recently, it had been thought that Samsung’s new ‘phablet’ would be called the Galaxy Note 6. However, it seems to be skipping a number to bring the Galaxy Note range into line with its Galaxy S7 line-up.
The Galaxy Note 7 Edge is expected to feature a curved display, measuring 5.8–inches, as well as a large 4000 mAh battery, iris recognition tech and ultra fast charging.
If speculation about Samsung's plans is correct, it appears the phone-maker is looking to steal the limelight from Apple over a month before it’s due to show off the iPhone 7.
That device is expected to offer only minor improvements compared with Apple’s existing iPhones.
