A report in late April claimed that Samsung was testing both a flat and curved display Galaxy Note and planned to release only one. The edge variant appears to be the winner, as sources say Samsung is not considering the launch of a flat version.

After the launch of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in February, many believed that Samsung would also launch a flat screen and curved screen Galaxy Note 6 in the summer. That notion first came into question when a report surfaced in late April claiming that the company was indeed testing a flat and curved display Note 6 but was only planning to release one model.

Reports soon followed claiming that the Galaxy Note 6 name was being changed to Galaxy Note 7 in an effort to match the company's current flagship Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones. It was also revealed that the device would ship with an advanced iris scanner on board for enhanced security and payment authorization.

With only weeks to go before Samsung's Unpacked event reportedly scheduled for Aug. 2,  a report from the Korea Herald states that Samsung is no longer considering launching a flat screen version of the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung seems to appear confident with its decision in only offering a dual curved edge display Galaxy Note 7 since the device is reportedly entering mass production in July and the company plans to have 5 million handsets built in time for its August release.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to sport a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED curved display and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, with an expected Android 7.0 N software update shortly after Google releases the upgrade in Q3 2016.

The Note 7 is believed to be powered by a Snapdragon 823 chip and to contain the largest amount of RAM Samsung has included in any of its smartphones, 6 GB of RAM. It is believed to use the same front and rear camera setup found on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, a 12-megapixel rear snapper and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

Users should also expect enhanced S Pen functionality, and like the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, the Galaxy Note 7 will rock the same waterproof and dust-resistant case.
