Rumors claim that Samsung will announce Note 7 on August 2, 2016 at an event in New York. We can also expect the handset to go on sale immediately after the announcement. A reason why it is going to start producing the new Galaxy Note one month earlier. The report also claims that the company will start manufacturing 2.5 million devices in July and another 2.5 million in August for a total of 5 million handsets as initial supply by August.

The device will have a 4,000mAh battery, and USB Type-C charging and an iris scanner manufactured by Patron. The Galaxy Note 7 will also feature a Samsung Focus communications app.
Samsung usually announce new Note device on September. However, last year it announced Galaxy Note 5 slightly earlier to take advantage of early adopters. It is believed the company is going for the same strategy and moved up its announcement to August instead of September.
