The iPhone can't get an OLED screen soon enough

by Linda Olson August 10, 2016, 1:25

The display is one of the most important parts of a smartphone and if you want the best display then buy one of the newest Samsung Galaxy phones. The Galaxy Note 7 is the first Samsung smartphone to feature an Iris scanner, which is also the USP of the device. That's right, if this is to be believed, the Galaxy S8 will only have one variant and not two like its predecessors.

Samsung Pay users will soon be able to secure purchases by scanning their eyes with the Galaxy Note 7, the latest addition to the Korean phone-maker's pen-oriented line up. This is a high-end phone with camera being its top feature.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage may hit the shelves in China in early September. With many feeling that the company's declining sales are a result of a lack of innovation from them in recent years, perhaps the introduction of a curved screen could be exactly what Apple needs. It was largely seen as an experiment from Samsung to see whether there would be real interest from the market. Samsung's doing its very best to attract people to the big-screen phone in South Korea, offering local buyers a free Gear Fit 2 fitness tracker with each order, and a promise that if the phone's screen gets broken, it'll stump up half the cost to get it repaired.

"Galaxy Note 7 brings several upgrades on board from a faster and more adept processor to a better GPU".

Simone Biles gets standing ovation after balance beam routine in Rio
Aly Raisman competing on the uneven bars on the second day of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games at the Rio Olympic Arena, Aug. 7, 2016. They first squirmed their way to stardom during their daughter's performance at the 2012 London Olympics.

The Note 7 is similarly water resistant (rated to IP68 specifications) and has support for microSD cards, both of which were not present in last year's Note 5.

As per the Korea Herald, Samsung is throwing in some meaningful incentives with Note 7 pre-orders. Moreover, Note 7 has a Super AMOLED Quad HD display that measures 5.7 inches and which has been really acclaimed ever since the release. iPhone 7 has an acceptable display, but we doubt that the company will kick it up a notch by using Quad HD on this version. But the Note series has always been a premium range, and while the iPhone 7 will no doubt be a high-end handset, it will have to pack in some serious display technology to outdo the Note 7.

Analyst IDC has estimated Samsung sold 77 million smartphones in the quarter - nearly twice as many as Apple's 40.4 million iPhone sales - driven by the popularity of the recent flagship devices.
