Samsung hasn’t shared any specification details of the device in the official post nut has confirmed that the Galaxy Note7 will have added functionality of the S Pen and will have a large screen. “Galaxy Note7 is a powerful instrument for achievement and self-expression, and is made for those who want to get the most from their phones – and their lives. Galaxy Note7 will help people do more in work, at home and everywhere in between. We can’t wait to tell you more about it!”

The Korean Giant also explained in the official post about its Galaxy Note7 name instead of the Galaxy Note6. “You might be curious as to why it’s called Galaxy Note7 instead of Galaxy Note6. There are a couple reasons why. First, the Galaxy Note7 will  complement our Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and unify our product portfolio. Second, the Galaxy Note7 will minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.”
