Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Note 7, the newest member of the company’s Galaxy Note lineup of products. The newest phablet offering from the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices comes with some interesting features, including a sleek, curved 5.7 inch display screen, a water proof frame, a stylus pen, and the South Korean tech giant’s Knox security features which include biometric authentication and a new iris scanning technology.
First of all, the specifications -- the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 sports a 5.7 inch Quad HD Dual edge Super AMOLED display screen with a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels and pixel density of 518 ppi. This is paired with a dual pixel 12 megapixel camera on the rear side (F1.7, with optical image stabilization), and a 5 megapixel camera on the front side (F1.7).
With regards to hardware specifications, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 packs an eight core, 14 nanometer process chip set consisting of a 2.3 GigaHertz quad core processor and a 1.6 GigaHertz quad core processor. This is supported with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 64 gigabytes of internal storage, expandable up to 256 gigabytes by way of a micro SD. Other notable features include a fingerprint scanner, an iris reader, and a 3,500 mAh battery (fast charging on wired and wireless; wireless charging compatible with WPC, PMA). The phablet is powered by Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be made available in store shelves everywhere beginning on August 19th of this year, and will be offered in color options that include Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium, Black Onyx, and Blue Coral. Prices may vary depending on the mobile operator carrying the device, but the range is somewhere between $840 to $880.
With the release of the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is hoping to extend its winning streak. One of its flagship devices, the Galaxy S7 Edge, has been named by Strategy Analytics as the world’s best selling Android powered handset during the first six months of this year. A couple of other Galaxy devices, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy J2, have proven to be solid hits in 2016 so far. Combined, the three devices sold more than 38 million units around the world (they are also the top three Android smartphones across the globe). The Galaxy Note 7 should help the momentum going, at least among ultra high end smartphone choices.
