Samsung confirmed this week that it was going to unveil the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2nd in New York and now we’re seeing the next logical step: certification. The new phablet has been certified by the FCC for use on all US carriers.
The authority has certified versions SM-N930V, SM-N930A, SM-N930P, SM-N930T, SM-N930R4 and the SM-N930W8. These are meant for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile and all of them are said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, together with 6 GB of RAM. The Note 7 is rumored to have an Exynos 8893 CPU in other markets around the world.
The price being thrown around these days is 849 euros, which converts to $943 and it’s about 50 euros more than the Galaxy S7 Edge. The new phablet is said to have an USB Type C port, iris scanner, 6 GB of RAM and a 5.7 inch Quad HD screen. A larger battery and curved screen edges are all in the mix, together with the same camera from the Galaxy S7 and waterproofing.
New color versions are also expected.
