Galaxy Note 7 could be bigger than we thought

Samsung is gearing up for the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 (or 6) phablet, and the leaks and rumours are starting to pile up.

Just this past week we've had news of a possible USB Type-C connection, and caught our best glimpse yet at the upcoming device's design thanks to a set of renders from prolific leaker Evan Blass.

And now, a listing on India's import-export site Zauba suggests we could be getting a larger version of the Galaxy Note 7 than we thought.

The device was expected to come with a 5.7-inch display, but the Zauba listing appears to suggest it will actually ship with a 6-inch screen.

Alternatively, it could be that Samsung is planning to release a larger variant of the Note 7 – releasing both a 5.7-inch and 6-inch handset.

The listing itself is for a test version of the phone, and includes the model number SM-N930, which has previously been reported as the internal code for the Note 7.

As the IB Times, states, it's unlikely that Samsing would be testing the final version at this point, as the handset is expected to be launched at a dedicated event on August 2.

Which, again, points to this larger version being a variant on the main design.

Previously however, Evan Blass reported the phablet will only come in one version with a dual curved edge screen, although no mention of larger models was made.

The phone itself is also expected to include a Snapdragon 820 or 823 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and come in three colour variants: Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral.

There's been no word from Samsung on whether we can expect a larger model, so at this point it's still worth taking today's Galaxy Note 7 leak with due caution.

The Note World is agog on this rumor; now about 36 hours old. When I first read of this I had a healthy skepticism which has since blossomed into a fragile hope. Let's do this, please, Samsung. A 6" Note 7 variant would set the smartphone community on its earbuds.

a 6 inch screen would be awesome..lets face it...our media consumption needs are growing ...and phones are going to be heading towards 6inches as an almost standard anyway...so why not let samsung lead the way.Plus with the s7 edge being 5.5 inches we need a difference with the note thats substantial...thats the reason some of us buy the note...we want the biggest baddest smartphone...not something marginally better

I wouldn't mind a bit more screen real Estate ,
That being said , i would much prefer a more substantial battery at the top of the priority list than the small one they put in the note 5.
