That theory is based on the fact that the same regulatory agency certified the Samsung Galaxy S7and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge two and half weeks after the pair was unveiled. With the Galaxy Note 7 receiving its green light more than a month before it is officially announced, it indicates a strong desire on Samsung's part to have everything ready to go in Russia once the phablet is made official on August 2nd.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 could be equipped with a screen as large as 6-inches, if a recent Zauba listing is correct. In the U.S. and China we could see the Snapdragon 821 SoC under the hood, with the Exynos 8893 chipset employed elsewhere. 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM will be inside along with 64GB/128GB/256GB of native storage. The same rear and front-facing cameras found on the Galaxy S7 will be on board the Galaxy Note 7. That means you should expect a 12MP snapper with OIS and an aperture of f/1.7 to adorn the back of the unit. A 5MP camera will grace the front of the phone, and the whole shebang will be powered by a 4000mAh battery.
