Samsung is set to announce the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in a meeting on the 2nd of August where they will officially announce the smartphone in New York City.
Although everyone would be expecting a Note 6 since the last Note that was released last year was a Note 5 but the company is choosing to jump to a Note 7.
This approach brings it to naming parity with the S7 line and also will put it on the same track as the iPhone 7, which is expected to be released this fall.

Samsung itself says the name change will “minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.”
If the Note 7 has a dual-curved display, it will be the first Note phone with such a feature (the Note Edge only curved on one side).
It is also expected to have an iris scanner for security and authentication purposes, which is alluded to in the invite’s design, which features an iris-like graphic.
For further specifications, stay glued on the 2nd of August, when the smartphone would be launched officially.
Nevertheless, various features have been leaked already. One of its most interesting features is an iris scanner that is said to authenticate a user faster than the fingerprint sensor found on Samsung smartphones. Now, images have been leaked that showcase how this iris recognition system works on the Galaxy Note 7.
