Edge version of the Samsung Galaxy Note7 appears in import listing

The successor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note5 smartphone has been the subject of several leaks and rumors for the past few months now. However, what we didn’t hear so far is the possible launch time-frame for the device.

Well, that changes now, as the usually reliable leakster @evleaks has revealed an August launch forthe Galaxy Note 6 in the United States. In fact, he pin points the week of August 15.To refresh, rumors say the Galaxy Note 6 will be powered by a Snapdragon 823 SoC, and sport a 5.8-inch QHD display. The phone is said to come with a whopping 6 (or even 8) GB of RAM. Aside from this standard model, Samsung is also rumored to be working on a ‘Lite’ variant with SD820 chipset, 1080p display, and 4GB RAM.

Mind you, it’s not the actual phone that’s entered India, but a metal mask for mobile phone production line, whatever that may be. It is the quoted model name that gives grounds for interpretation – SM-N935G.

Samsung Galaxy Note5

The current Galaxy Note5 carries a model number SM-N920, the Galaxy S7 is SM-G930, and then theGalaxy S7 edge is SM-G935. The obvious logic would then indicate that the SM-N935 would be the next Note, and in edge flavor at that. Now there’s the less exciting option that the SM-N935 might be the ‘Lite’ variant of the upcoming phablet, but we’d rather believe the former.
