Samsung Galaxy Note 7 specs: the hardware behind the ‘next big thing’

Some rumors (nearly all the new ones) have been proven absolutely right. Others (mostly old) were probably too hopeful. After all, it kinda sorta makes sense for Samsung to merely refine the wildly successful Galaxy S7 Edge this fall before radically transforming it into the GS8 next spring.

Besides, a fair comparison for the Galaxy Note 7 is likely against its Note 5-branded predecessor, not S-series cousin. And in that case, the upgrades are both obvious and substantial. But first things first, let’s see what the Note 6-skipping phablet is all about, and then, we’ll be sure to do a side-by-side battle, complete with exclusive hands-on video from New York City.
