Samsung schedules Galaxy Note 7 event for August 2nd

Yep, there's no Note 6.

Samsung has just sent us an invitation for its Note event in New York City, and yes, it's for the Note 7. We've heard for awhile now that the company would be skipping over a number for its next phablet, but now it appears to be official. According to Samsung, the name of the device will "minimize confusion" and "complement" the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets, thus unifying the product portfolio. There's not much else we know about the phone, though rumors suggest a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display handset with a 12-megapixel rear camera and 64GB of storage. It's all rather mysterious, but as the event will be on August 2nd, we won't have long to find out more.
