Quite some time ago we heard a rumour that Samsung would be hosting an Unpacked event in August, and now that is finally official.

This was confirmed by Samsung this week, who have sent out invites to the press for the event on Augst 2nd.

In the invite, they also confirmed that the device that they will be announcing the Galaxy Note 7 during the event, as they not only featured the number 7 in their invite, but also released the following statement:

You might be curious as to why it’s called Galaxy Note 7 instead of Galaxy Note 6. There are a couple reasons why. First, the Galaxy Note 7 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.

We don’t yet know any official specifications for the Note 7, however, rumours suggest that it will have a 5.7-inch display with a 2,560 x 1,440-pixel resolution, a Snapdragon 821 processor and either 4GB or 6GB of RAM.

It is also said to feature a range of storage options from 32GB all the way up to 256GB, with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Samsung’s Unpacked event will kick off at 11am EDT in New York and at 4PM in London on August 2nd, which they will also be live streaming.

As always, we will have the latest for you right here, on TechNutty.
