Samsung hints on the invite that the Galaxy Note 7 will have a dual-edge screen like the Galaxy S7 edge. The current believe is that only one new Note model will be launched.
A new report claims that Samsung will kick off mass production of the Note 7 in July. According to sources of ETNews, Samsung will produce 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 in July and another 2.5 million in August. If these numbers are correct, then Samsung is very optimistic about the Note 7. Samsung only made 5 million Note 5 in the first quarter of its release. The Note 7 production volume for the first quarter could be 50% higher.
Earlier this month, renders of the Galaxy Note 7 leaked. The device has a very clean design and the screen extending over the edges gives it the unique signature look that only Samsung is offering.
