The long-rumoured Samsung 2016 series flagship phablet Galaxy Note 7 series will finally see light of the day in a couple of months.

Samsung community blog SamMobile has got hold of the soon-to-be launched Galaxy Note series' promotional teaser. In the poster, the phablet's edge has been intentionally highlighted by thick white lines forming a shape of numerical 7, almost confirming that the new device will most likely be called the Note 7.

Below the device, we see launch date and venue details. The company will be hosting the unveiling at 11:00 a.m. EDT on Aug. 2 at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, New York.

For the uninitiated, Galaxy Note 7 was supposed to come with Galaxy Note 6 moniker as the successor of the Note 5, but recent reports have suggested that the company officials had a change of mind and went for 7 series. Many believe this is the right move by Samsung as the phablet name will be in sync with its 2016 flagship smartphone sibling -- Galaxy S7 series.

As of now, Samsung has not made any official comment with regard to the leaked Galaxy Note 7 poster. If we are allowed to weigh in, we cannot confirm what the device's moniker will be, but the rumoured release date seems plausible because last year, the company had launched the Note 5 in August.
