Previously, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (Note 6) was believed to be one of the first smartphones launched with Android N pre-installed. Contradicting earlier rumors, a recently leaked render indicates that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 specs sheet may ditch Google’s upcoming Android operating system.

A Samsung Mobile user agent data of the purported Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with model number SM-N930A has surfaced online. The Galaxy Note 5 carries a model number SM-N920. Thus, the device leaked online is anticipated to be the next-gen Note phablet. The user agent profile shows the device running run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow instead of Android N, as reported by SamMobile.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is said to sport a 5.8-inch display with Quad HD resolution. The flagship phablet may arrive with two different processors for different regions. The rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 7 specs may also include a massive 6GB of RAM, according to unofficial reports.

Other speculated Galaxy Note 7 specs include a humongous 4,000mAh battery unit, USB Type-C port, support for Gear VR headset and IP68 water and dust resistance. Unlike the Galaxy Note 5, the next-gen flagship phablet may arrive with an ‘edge’ variant, sporting a dual-curved-edge display and dual-lens camera module.

In the meantime, a new leak from China indicates that Samsung’s next Galaxy Note phablet will indeed be called the Galaxy Note 7, not Note 6. Rumors were rife that this year Samsung will change the usual naming protocol to maintain a consistency with its flagship Galaxy S7 smartphone. Moreover, by breaking the conventional naming pattern, Samsung is reportedly trying to position the next generation of Galaxy Note 7 against Apples iPhone 7.

The next iteration of the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be unveiled in August. However, Samsung has not yet confirmed the Galaxy Note 7 release date.
