Samsung today sent out invites to a press event, which we generally know as ‘Galaxy Unpacked,’ for August 2, 2016, where it will be announcing the next Galaxy Note flagship – the Galaxy Note 7.
But wait … Note 7? Where’s the Note 6? Alright, the Note 7 is Note 6, or there’s no Note 6 in the pipeline. Yes, there’s no Note 6 at all.
Samsung explains the unusual naming of the Galaxy Note 7 as follows:
First and foremost though, you might be curious as to why it’s called Galaxy Note7 instead of Galaxy Note6. There are a couple reasons why. First, the Galaxy Note7 will complement our Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and unify our product portfolio. Second, the Galaxy Note7 will minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.
Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked 2016 launch event for the Note 7 will take place at 11am ET in New York City on August 2 next month. Satellite events will happen in Rio de Janeiro at noon and in London at 4pm, along with the live stream available through www.samsung.com.
