Galaxy Note 7 Rumored To Feature A Y-OCTA Display – What In The World Is A Y-OCTA Display?


From OnePlus 3’s Optic AMOLED display to Galaxy Note 7 being outfitted with a Y-OCTA panel, we are not sure who comes up with these fancy names, but they are really starting to confuse us. Regardless, it has been rumored that Samsung will be dropping its Super AMOLED display for its Galaxy Note 7 and will use the aforementioned display.

A Y-OCTA display For A Galaxy Note 7 Will Reduce Its Thickness While Adding More Sharpness  

Samsung’s Super AMOLED panels look stunning on its flagship smartphones, and it’s not that they are incorporated just for the sake of providing you with rich and vibrant colors because they have other helpful attributes as well. They allow manufacturers to make devices thin, which is not exactly helpful, considering that this leads to smaller battery capacities being tucked inside future smartphones. However, they are highly efficient, and in the smartphone age, you need as much battery life as possible.

The Y-OCTA display present in a Galaxy Note 7 could also reduce the display production costs for Samsung, which could work out in our favor in terms of pricing. As for the remainder of the specifications, Galaxy Note 7 will be available in a variety of storage models, which have been listed below and the internal memory will satisfy the UFS 2.0 standard.

  • 64GB
  • 128GB
  • 256GB

Keep in mind that you will have a MicroSD card slot for immediate storage expansion, so you can always get away with purchasing the base storage model and not worry about the slightest issue concerning low amount of storage.


The UFS 2.0 standard obviously means that you will get faster read and write speeds. Apart from this, one of the most highly anticipated rumors is a dual-camera configuration. In terms of its hardware, Galaxy Note 7 is either going to feature a Snapdragon 820 or an Exynos 8893 underneath its hood.

To top this, Galaxy Note 7 has also been reported to feature a massive 5.7-inch screen (there could be another variant) and IP68 certification, meaning that the smartphone is going to be waterproof till a certain depth. Additionally, the upcoming handset is expected to feature 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM; this will be the same amount of RAM present in Galaxy Note 5 because instead of having more RAM, Samsung will probably be thinking that adding more memory is baseless until the tech giant can get the software done right, and it will actually save the user more battery life too.

While details are virtually non-existent over the Y-OCTA panel, we will gain more insight into this and educate you in the process as well.
