Samsung Electronics has scheduled the Samsung Unpacked 2016 event, where it is expected to unveil its Galaxy Note 7, on August 2.

According to Samsung’s invite posted on their website, the event will be held in New York City and will start at 11: a.m. EST.

Samsung said that they will be unveiling the new Galaxy Note 7, which will be made for people “who want to get the most from their phones – and their lives.”

The smartphone maker said that the Galaxy Note 7 will allow people to get more work done, at home or anywhere in between.

Samsung also said that they added functionality in the S Pen and large screen, which suggest that the stylus that usually accompanies the phablet will likely stay for at least year.

The company also explained that the new phablet will be called Galaxy Note 7 and not Note 6 because it will “complement their Galaxy S7 and S7 edge” handsets.

The Note 7 name will also “minimize confusion” about the latest technology from Samsung and “provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.”

Prominent Samsung leaker Evan Blass posted on his Twitter account leaked images of what the Galaxy Note 7 would look like. It comes in three colors, Black Onyx, Titanium Silver and Blue Coral.

Images show that the new phablet will have edge-to-edge curved screen and a possible iris scanner.

Though the internal of the new Galaxy Note 7 is still up for debate, there are already rumors coming out about its internal hardware.

Engadget reports that the new phablet will have a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display handset with a 12-megapixel rear camera.

The Galaxy Note 7 is also rumored to have a 64 gigabyte of storage.

Samsung said that simultaneous launch events will take place in Rio de Janeiro at noon and in London at 4 p.m.

The New York event will also be live-streamed on Samsung’s website.
