The next Samsung smartphone reveal is expected to be for the Galaxy Note 7 and word is coming in that it'll be available as a curved edge variant, only.

According to the Korea Herald we can expect to say goodbye to the standard screened Note at Samsung's next Unpacked event where the Note 7 edge should be revealed. A previous report from Korea's Electronic Times made the same edge-only claim a few weeks back.

Following on from the popularity of the Galaxy S6 and S7 edge smartphones it appears Samsung is going for a Note 7 edge model as the only option.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 edge is expected to feature dual curved edges on either side, like the current Galaxy S7 edge.

A leaked teaser invite showed the edge of a screen, made to look like a seven, being drawn on with a stylus. This would suggest that the S Pen can actually be used on the screen edges – for what use, we can't fathom.

Samsung is expected to unveil the handset at a dedicated event on 2 August. Specs are rumoured to include a 5.8-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, Exynos and Snapdragon processor variants with up to 6GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel camera, 4000mAh battery and an S Pen stylus.

Samsung is reportedly skipping the Note 6 name to jump right to Note 7 so it can put the device in line with its flagship Galaxy S7 as well as up against the iPhone 7.
