With the rumoured launch and release dates for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 edging nearer, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has already passed through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification, revealing the listing of each model number corresponding to their particular carrier. Variations of the device for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular have received approval.
On a related note, Samsung also seems to be ready to join in on the ‘Unlocked’ trend, as was evidenced by the release of Galaxy S7 Unlocked in June.
As one website has been reported as saying: “The USA-aimed carrier editions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have been tipped to be rolling with the latest in Qualcomm processor technology. That means each carrier edition of this phone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, if sources prove reliable. Outside of the United States, Samsung will very likely be releasing the Galaxy Note 7 with their own Samsung Exynos 8893 SoC”.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be launched at an event on August 2, and the device is expected to go on sale soon after that, although some speculate that the release of the smartphone may take place on the very day of its launch. The FCC listing of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a clear marker that the phone is nearing its release, and in this light the possibility of a launch-cum-release cannot be brushed off completely. This makes for exciting news for tech heads and gadget freaks as the coming few weeks are rumoured to see two flagship launches from two biggies of the smartphone industry, with the possibility of Apple launching the new iPhone 7 series, which includes the iPhone 7, the iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 7 Pro, which will be the first set of Apple devices to feature the iOS 10.
