Samsung to jump to Galaxy Note 7, skipping 6?
In a turn of events, it seems like Samsung is bypassing the six label and going straight to naming it Galaxy Note 7 when it launches in a few months, according to a report.
In a move to eliminate any inconsistencies and to catch up to the popularity of the Galaxy S7 series, ETNews reported that the next Note device will be Note 7.
[Samsung] has decided to skip over Galaxy Note 6 to eliminate any inconsistency with an image that can occur as numbers of two products’ brands are different. It is also applying dual-edge on Note series for the first time. This is seen as Samsung Electronics’ strategy to maximize marketability of ‘Galaxy Note7’, which is considered as Samsung Electronics’ biggest anticipated product, and to widen a gap between itself and Apple.
This actually makes sense since having a number prior to the current flagship may give a feeling that it’s an outdated phone.
Additionally, we could also be seeing a dual-edge approach for the Note 7 when it comes out since the current Note only has curved edges on its back. According to the source, this could put the company superior above other phonemakers since “it has a high level of difficulty in technology.” Lastly, the source points to a mid-July or August for the official launch.
Samsung neither denied nor confirmed these reports, so do take them with a grain of salt as of now.
