Samsung Galaxy Note 7, also known as the Samsung Galaxy Note 6, may be coming in just a few months. And already, the model may have been spotted way before the scheduled Unpacked event by the South Korean company.

In a new report from Phone Arena, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 or Note 7 (depending on whether Samsung will make all the iterations of its Galaxy S models on the same page), may have been spotted on the website even before the expected event.

The model number SM-N930F was spotted, and speculated to be one of the new models for the device. According to the source, the model number is not accompanied by any other details in the UA profile page. The most that the sighting does is confirm that the model exists.

There is some backing to the belief that it will be the next Samsung Galaxy Note device. Given that the SM-N910 was the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the SM-N920 was the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, it is possible that the next iteration, SM-N930 will be the newest iteration for the unit.

There are no specifics about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 yet, but it seems that the Unpacked Event in New York will reveal more about the new headset. in a previous report from Know Your Mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 or Note 6 may feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU, a whopping 6GB of RAM, a possible dual-edge display and new software and imaging features.

Samsung has more and bigger plans in the pipeline, if a new report is to be believed. It appears that it is pushing up its arm for OLED production, with a grand budget of 8 trillion won (approx. US$6.82 billion or AU$9.16 billion). According to Android Authority, the report comes from the Nikkei Asian Review in Japan.

The upcoming iPhone models for 2017 will reportedly be using Samsung’s OLED displays, hence the need for a bigger investment in the product. Samsung can already provide OLED displays for over 300 million smartphones every year, and the boost in budget production can bring the numbers up by supposedly 200 million units.

What is not assured is whether or not the boost in budget production is to meet a bigger demand for Apple products or to increase Samsung’s own volume of smartphone units.
