Samsung is just weeks away from unveiling its next flagship with more advanced specs than its previous premium device, but also a higher price. The latest information shows that the unlocked Galaxy Note 7 could cost about $849, which is $50 more than for the Galaxy S7 edge.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 could be sold for a price starting at $849, making it the most expensive Note to hit the shelves, according to SamMobile. The price would be $50 higher than that of the Galaxy S7 edge, and in some respects, it’s quite justifiable, considering that the Note 7 will have more advanced specs.

It’s almost a sure thing that the upcoming Note will have a curved dual-edge display, just like the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. RAM capacity is expected to reach 6GB, compared to 4GB on the S7 edge, but there are some contradicting rumors on this matter. Leaked information shows 6GB of RAM, but some variants like the one for Verizon could come with 4GB of RAM.

Other than that, the Note 7 will have some specs similar to the S7 edge, with the additional USB Type-C port, iris scanner, and a larger battery. Some hearsay has suggested that the Note 7 could also pack a more powerful processor, the Snapdragon 821 or Exynos 8893, depending on the country. By contrast, the S7 edge had a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 processor.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 could come with a redesigned S Pen stylus

The Galaxy Note 7 will also introduce a new version of TouchWiz to the world, the GraceUX. Aside from this, it will also come bundled with a redesigned S Pen stylus with more features compared to the stylus on previous Note smartphones.

A fingerprint scanner will be embedded in the home button, just below the 5.7 or 5.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display. Rear camera capacity could reach 12MP, and the handset could draw power from a 4,000mAh battery.

It’s also expected to come with IP68 certification. Considering all of this, a $50 price hike compared to the latest flagship doesn’t seem that much, but it does mean that some eager fans could put off purchasing the device until prices start going down.
