Samsung appears to be getting ready to unveil its "next big thing," dubbed the Galaxy Note 6 aka the Galaxy Note 7, but it is not revealing any detail. However, leaks have revealed almost every detail, including specifications. Now, it has emerged that the next-generation device will see the light of day in the third quarter of this year.

It was earlier speculated that the Galaxy Note 6 (Galaxy Note 7) could be released as early as mid-July, but leakster Evan Blass @evleaks has now claimed in a Twitter post it will be released in August. The claim holds some water as the Galaxy Note 5 was released in the same month last year.

There were also unconfirmed reports doing the rounds that the Galaxy Note 6 (Galaxy Note 7) would be released in the United States in the first week of August.

The South Korean technology giant is tight-lipped on the much-awaited device, but several reports have claimed it will sport a 5.8-inch display with 2,560x1,440 pixels, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor, running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow (even Android N), with 64GB/128GB internal memory, 10-nanometer 6GB RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery.

It was also reported that the device might feature the same snappers seen in the Galaxy S7 — a 12MP main camera with features like f/1.7 aperture, 26mm, OIS, 1/2.6" sensor size and 1.4 µm pixel size, and a 5MP front-snapper with f/1.7 aperture. However, a report by Chinese website Zol (via Pocket-lint) has claimed, citing industry sources, that the Galaxy Note 7 edge version will feature a dual camera.
