Samsung Galaxy Note 7R Update: Samsung Galaxy Note 7R To Release Before Note 8, Will Feature 3200mAh Battery

Galaxy Note 7R Release Date | Galaxy S7 is the Most Used Samsung Phone

Like Samsung's other high-end models, the new flip phone would be resistant to dust and water. "We have not yet decided on the phone's launch schedule", a Samsung official said. The release should happen as soon as this month in Korea. The full HD resolution on such a small display is going to make it look extremely sharp and produce unbelievable visuals, especially with the screen being an AMOLED display. It is also rumored to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 or the Exynos 8895 chipset and comes with 6GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128GB of internal storage. A 12 MP primary camera along with a 5 MP front camera is expected on this device. The only advantage of iPhone 7 Plus here is the quad LED flash and the aperture size of F1.8 with a bit bigger camera sensor size. In addition to its classy appearance, the S8 is loaded with features like, water-resistance, super-fast speeds flawless for Saint Lucia's fastest, most robust network, high performance, wireless charging, and external storage so you can store more photos, videos, and music.

Both feature Samsung's proprietary Infinity Screen, which offers an expansive display that ranges from edge to edge.

Experts also opine the W2017 variant due to be launched in Korea could be a special edition version of the above handset.

You read that right: Samsung still hasn't given up on flip phones.

Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 on all four major carriers in the U.S. Earlier this week, the company announced a new pre-order opportunity for those who want an unlocked model. But in many Asian countries, people still prefer flip phones.

Samsung's long-awaited Galaxy Note 7 refurbishment project is almost upon us - and we've now heard a rumour on pricing. However if you wanted two Galaxy S8 handsets, you're in luck.
