Speculation surrounding the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has so far put the launch of the flagship anytime in the first week of August. Now a poster which appears to be a leaked teaser for the device shows off the date 2 August indicating that it could be the launch date for the Note 7.

According to an image that was sent to Sam Mobile which exclusively reports on Samsung, the company may unveil the Galaxy Note 7 or the Galaxy Note 7 Edge on 2 August, 2016, at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York. The poster reads, "The Next Edge is just around the corner" which hints that it could be an Edge device. However, the next Galaxy device from Samsung in line is the Note 7 which was originally supposed to be named Note 6.

The Edge in this case could mean the design of the Note 7 which is expected to have a dual curved screen with a possible functioning Edge screen in place. While it is not certain which device this may be, the white lines on the poster clearly point towards a Galaxy Note 7 series model.

The date of the launch is in line with what we have reported earlier, but it contradicts what famed tipster Evan Blass had claimed. The prediction was that the US launch would be by the second week of August. A launch almost a week early is not the only issue here, but the fact that the device will launch in the US is. Traditionally, Samsung devices are unveiled in their home-country South Korea and then elsewhere, unless it is a trade/electronics show, like the MWC 2016 where the Galaxy S7 series was unveiled.

The Note 7 is likely to get a 5.8-inch QHD curved edge display, on board a Snapdragon 823 SoC or (Exynos equivalent for select markets) chipset, running on a 4,000 mAh battery. The device is also rumoured to feature an iris scanner, an IP68-certified water-resistant body and a USB Type-C port, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
