Samsung has officially announced that it will be launching its flagship phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, on August 2nd. The device will be unveiled at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event.
The launch will take place simultaneously in three continents: North America, South America and Europe.
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 7 at 11 AM EDT in New York, and Rio de Janeiro at noon, and at 4 PM in London. That translates to 8:30 PM in Indian Standard Time (August 3rd).
The presence of a European launch, hints at the availability of the big screen device in the Continent. Its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 5, was not sold in Europe, an unpopular decision which the company defended by claiming that Europeans did not use big screen devices for productivity, something which the Note and its S-Pen Stylus, is designed for.
The South Korean company states in its official blog, that the Galaxy Note 7 will have some new S Pen features. It also explained about the fact that it has decided to skip the Note 6 branding, in favour of the Note 7 to keep it on par with its flagship portfolio, the Edge S7 and the S7 Edge. Rumors hint that the Note 7 will feature a new display technology called Y-OCTA, which makes the touch screen lighter.
