Samsung Galaxy Note 7 release date rumors: Europe sales to start August 16


The much awaited flagship phablet from Samsung, the long rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 7, is closer and closer to becoming official. With the highly anticipated launch event for the new device happening on Aug. 2, people would want to know when they could start getting their own Galaxy Note 7.

Depending on where the user might be living, one may be able to obtain for themselves a new Galaxy Note 7 on the same day that it would be unveiled, or possibly anytime in the weeks following its introduction.

The latest reports about the release of the device pointed out that the upcoming flagship phablet from the South Korean tech giant would start selling, at least for consumers in the European region, on Aug. 16, two weeks after the device gets launched on Aug. 2.

However, the rumored release date was said to be only for the Netherlands, with most of the countries in the region possibly still getting the device on the same day that it launches. For the users in Europe, it was said that the Silver and Black color variants would be the only color variants that would be available initially, with the Gold and Blue colors following at a later date.

On the other hand, users that are in the company’s home market in South Korea would be able to get a hold of the device and bring them home on the same day that it launches. No word yet if fellow neighboring Asian countries such as Japan, Hong Kong, and the Philippines would also be able to open purchases for the device on the same day.

While the device remains to be unofficial, some of the “confirmed” specifications include a display size of 5.7 inches, with a Super AMOLED screen with a Quad HD resolution, and dual-curved edges. It runs under a Snapdragon 821 chipset or an Exynos 8893 processor, depending on the region. It packs 4 GB of random access memory (RAM), along with 3,500 mAh worth of battery capacity.
