Samsung Unveils New Galaxy Note7

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 7 - a large-screen cellphone - on Tuesday in an attempt to take business from rival Apple.

The Galaxy Note 7 is also the first Note phablet from Samsung to feature a dual-edge screen.

Since inception, the concept of the Galaxy Note 7 has undergone several iterations and the final product is indeed as well-rounded as other Samsung devices from the Galaxy Note lineup. Even though the device will be available to buy starting 19th August, smartphone carriers in the USA have started taking pre-orders for the device already.

Pre-orders for the device come with a free $200 account credit, and the option of an exclusive Silver Titanium variant of the device, only available to Spark customers.

One of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7's key features is the iris scanner, which allows users to unlock their devices by aligning their eyes with the two circles on the display. Nevertheless, we assume that all Galaxy Note 7 users in the U.S. will be able to take advantage of this.

Samsung also launched a new Gear VR headset alongside the Galaxy Note 7, which offers an improved 101-degree field of view and support for USB Type-C and microUSB connectors.

The Galaxy Note 7 has a 5.7-inch curved panel, 2560 x 1440 pixels (518 ppi), and a Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 5, Forbes reported. The Note7 comes with a 64 GB memory, which can be expanded thanks to the microSD slot, which supports memory cards of up to 256 GB.

The S Pen has also been given a range of new features compared to previous generations of the Note, including the ability to translate words on-screen from and into a series of languages when hovered over text.

Samsung says the iris scanner is more secure than fingerprint scanners found on phones made by its rivals, such as the iPhone. In the United Kingdom, pre-orders open on 16 August and it will go on sale on 2 September.

As per the specifications, the Galaxy Note 7 is a feature-packed flagship.

It has 64GB of internal storage and the battery has been increased to 3,500 mAh.
