Unlike Samsung's Galaxy Note 5, the upcoming Note 7 is set to be made available in the Netherlands this year. However, while Samsung has taken to providing consumers with two options - that is, a curved edge screen, or a traditional flat screen - it is sounding like only the curved screen will be made available this time.

This news is coming from GSM Helpdesk, who also reports that the Note 5 was not made available in the Netherland market. The choice for a curved-only sale was made after Samsung tested both variants earlier this year.

The publication notes that, after rumors of the name, it will finally be called the Note 7, as the Korean tech giant has decided to skip naming the gadget the Note 6. Reportedly, this decision was simply to align the Note series with all others of Samsung. It was found that consumers became somewhat partial of other series, as they Note seemed to lag behind.

The Galaxy Note 7 will reportedly sport a lot of the features currently found in the Samsung S7.

As BGR notes, the upcoming phone will come with a 5.8 inch display with 2K, or 2560 x 1140, resolution. It will be powered by a quicker Exynos 8 processor, a 4000mAH battery and 6GB of RAM. Its camera will be 12 megapixels with dual pixel technology. A stylus will also come with the unit, as this extra item has become synonymous with the Note series.

The unit will reportedly also be fitted with an iris scanner, an IP68-certified body for water and dust resistance and USB Type C port.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is set for release sometime this August - most likely in the second or third week. It is expected to be priced at about €799, or just over $900.00. It is possible that Samsung will also release an updated Gear VR headset as it launches the Note 7.
