Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the latest Buzz in the popular Galaxy Note phablet series, is now launched at simultaneous events in New York, London, and Rio de Janeiro. The launch started at 8:30pm IST, and We have shared all info with links for all the latest updates from the Galaxy Note Unpacked 2016 event. As specification goes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. The phone sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD dual edge Super Amoled display of 1440×2560 pixel resolution protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Confirming endless prior leaks and rumours, the Note 7 includes both an iris scanner and a fingerprint sensor. It is powered by an octa-core processor clubbed with 4GB RAM.
Some Galaxy Note 7 details were confirmed by Samsung when it issued its launch invites last month. The company confirmed the name of the smartphone, while touting the new and improved features of the new S Pen.
As for the leaks and rumours, Samsung is said to be doing several things differently with the latest Galaxy Note phablet, such as the inclusion of an iris scanner, and the utilisation of a dual-edge display. While Samsung had unveiled a curved display Galaxy Note smartphone alongside the Galaxy Note 4 in 2014 – the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge – the company had decided not to launch a curved display variant in 2015 alongside the flat display Galaxy Note 5.
Speculation indicated the reason was the difficult implementation of the S Pen stylus with a dual-edge display smartphone. This year however, Samsung is tipped to only launch a dual-edge display Galaxy Note 7, and not flat display variant alongside. Another highlight feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be its dust and water resistance, and the smartphone is said to have IP68 certification – the same offered by the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

With Samsung Pass plus Iris Scanner, you won’t need usernames or passwords
We rethought the Galaxy Note from every angle. A dual-curved screen so you can do more, better and faster. A rounded back so you can hold the 5.7-inch Note comfortably in the hand while using the S Pen. And continuing with the legacy of our previous Galaxy phones, we made the Galaxy Note7 water resistant. This time not just the device, but also the S Pen. So you can carry on using your phone wherever you are.
What Samsung Says about S Pen
We changed the S Pen in the way it writes, the way it works and the way it thinks. To write like a real pen because you use it to take notes, to sketch out ideas. To work without worrying about it getting wet because you never know when inspiration might strike. To speak multiple languages so you don’t have to, and to communicate in other ways when words just aren’t enough.
Sometimes the moment is planned, sometimes it just happens. With the Galaxy Note7, you get consistently good photos whatever the scenario. Its camera effortlessly handles the most difficult challenges, from a lack of light to sudden movement. It’s because the Dual Pixel Sensor works with a brighter F1.7 lens and larger 1.4µm pixels to capture images the way your own eyes do.
For Galaxy Note7 even the most basic internal memory is 64GB. But if your storage needs exceed that, Galaxy Note7 has expandable storage that supports a microSD card up to 256GB. If it’s a second number you need, all it takes is a switch of the cards in the hybrid SIM tray. And without having to turn off your phone.
Bigger battery with fast charge
More work and more play requires more power. And that’s why Galaxy Note7 comes with a battery that’s bigger than the previous Note. But that doesn’t mean it’s any less fast in charging because we know time is of the essence.
