Samsung announced the coming of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 yesterday, August 2, 2016 as is the usual practise with the Galaxy Note series, which is announced around August of each year and released into the market a few weeks after.
The last edition of the Galaxy Note series is the Galaxy Note 5, but it seems Samsung is skipping the Note 6 and jumping to Note 7 so that the numbering of the Note series would tally with that of the Galaxy “S” series. Galaxy S7 was released earlier this year and now that the Galaxy Note 7 is coming out, the numbers can now be the same and be increasing together annually.
While the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a number of properties in common with its predecessors like the Note 5 and Note 4, which all have a display of 1440 x 2560 pixels and a pixel density of 518ppi, the Galaxy Note 7 also brings new features to the game that makes it stand out. The major ones being
An Iris scanner that can be used to scan your iris to unlock your phone or some other locked folders on the phone
Dual curved-edge screen, which makes the phone look like a bigger version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, but with more features of course
A re-energized, more sensitive and intuitive S-pen that allows you take notes even when your screen is off
A bigger battery of 3500mAh
A RAM size of 4GB
This phone is packed with power and is easily looking like the best phone that you can get out there. It is not just a big smartphone, but it has been dubbed “The smartphone that thinks big“. There’s also a Gear VR designed to work seamlessly with this phone alongside a Gear 360 device that can be used to take 360o photos and video.
