Samsung is rumored to skip the Galaxy Note 6 and launch directly the Galaxy Note 7 in August, in order to match the Galaxy S7 range. This comes to contradict earlier reports that indicated Samsung is testing a couple of devices for the Note5's successor.

According to Korea Herald, a local daily newspaper in Korea, Munwha Ilbo, confirms that Samsung will not release a flat screen edition of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 this year. Samsung Electronics' new Note phablet is expected to have a curved screen. This is indicating the company's commitment to a dual-edge curved display for its entire line of Galaxy smartphones. 

University Herald reports that Samsung will unveil its flagship Galaxy Note 7 in August, at an event held in New York. The phablet will become the first Note device with a curved screen. The South Korean tech giant is not considering launching a flat screen version of the Note phone. 

Speculations suggest that Samsung is also likely to unveil a special edition version of its flagship Galaxy S7. The upcoming smartphone will be themed on the upcoming Rio Olympics. 

MNR Daily reports that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will start its mass production stage in July. Galaxy Note 7 is expected to make an appearance at the looming Galaxy Unpacked event on August 2. The upcoming device could pack an Iris Scanner on its front shooter, if previous reports will prove to be true. Rumors suggested that an eye-scanner module manufacturer, Patron, will supply Samsung with the parts required for the Iris Scanner.

Up to date, Samsung has not confirmed any rumors regarding the existence of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 or the alleged Galaxy Unpacked event scheduled for the August 2 date. With that in mind, these are still speculations and we can only wait for an official statement from the South Korean tech giant.
