Samsung has finally unveiled the Galaxy Note 7 after riding on the rumor wave for sometime. Galaxy Note 7 will be the first Note to be IP68 rated which means it is dust proof and water proof for depths beyond 1m.
Note 7 will be the first Samsung device to have a curved screen which meets a curved back, with the glass on front and metal at back curving in unison. The device has a gorgeous 5.7″ screen with QHD resolution and is also one of the first devices to feature HDR support found on 4K TVs to produce more colors and high contrast.
The Note 7 has an enhanced Stylus – S Pen which is also IP68 rated, can be used to write in on Always-on screen and even underwater. The device also features an Iris scanner to the list of sensors which will be able to replace the fingerprint reader for use with Samsung Pay, Knox and your personal files. Note 7 is powered by the latest Snapdragon 820 chipset or an Exynos 8890 (depends on region), has 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. There is no word on the 128GB variant but luckily we have the microSD card slot to expand storage.
There is a 12MP dual-pixel camera on the back with f/1.7 and 5MP selfie camera, both borrowed from the Galaxy S7. Note 7 is the first Samsung device to feature the USB Type-C port which supports quick charging and OTG. There is also wireless charging technology for the 3500 mAh battery inside the device.
The device goes for pre-order on Amazon starting tomorrow and the sales start from August 19 in the USA.
