Rumor has it Samsung will only offer one version of the Galaxy Note 6 (probably called the Galaxy Note 7), and it may still be deciding between a flat panel display or an Edge design. Now a fresh leak seems to reveal which way the company is leaning.
A device with the model number SM-N935 was recently spotted in Indian shipping database Zauba, suggesting a Galaxy Note 6 Edge could be in the works. That model number includes the “N” that signifies a Note device, like the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920). It also ends with a “5,” suggesting a curved display like the Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935). Combine the two, and you get a Galaxy Note 7 Edge.
Of course, it’s possible Samsung is still testing out the design. The filing is actually for a pair of metal masks used in smartphone production. Then again, with the Galaxy Note 7 expected in mid-August, the company may be gearing up for mass production pretty soon.
The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to pack a 5.8-inch Quad HD display, 6GB of RAM and at least 64GB of storage. It may also sport the same 12-megapixel camera from the Galaxy S7 with some software improvements. Samsung will likely offer a new Gear VR headset designed for the phablet as well.
It could be a few more months before the Galaxy Note 7 makes an official appearance but, if you’re a fan of Samsung’s flagship phablet series, it’s probably worth waiting for the Galaxy Note 7 Edge at this point.
