The Galaxy Note 7 smartphone with a model number SM-N930F has been spotted on Samsung’s website. Rumors have it that this model number belongs to a variant that will not feature a dual edge curved display.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that was launched in 2014 had a model number of SM-N910. The Galaxy Note 5 from last year has a model number of SM-N920. Hence, the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to carry a model number of SM-N930. Since SM-N930F that has been found listed on Samsung’s site does not bear “G” at its end, it suggests that this could be a variant of Galaxy Note 7 that will not feature a dual edge curved screen, Sam Mobile reported.
However, other rumors suggest that Samsung will only launch one model of Galaxy Note 7 this year and even thought it won’t carry “Edge” moniker, it is likely to feature a dual edge curved display. In the past, the Galaxy Note 7 with model number of SM-N935G was spotted on an import listing. It confirmed that the dual edge edition of Galaxy Note 7.
Samsung is expected to name the next generation Galaxy Note phablet as Galaxy Note 7 instead of Galaxy Note 6. The probable reason behind it is that the company wants Note series phablet to carry the same numbering as its Galaxy S series smartphones. Since Samsung had launched Galaxy S7 earlier this year, it is rumored to skip a generation to launch Galaxy Note 7.
Recent rumors have suggested that the South Korean tech giant will manufacture 2.5 million units of Galaxy Note 7 in the next month. It is expected to produce another 2.5 million units of the phablet in August. Speculations are rife that the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event will be held on Aug. 2 to unveil the Galaxy Note 7.
