The much awaited smartphone from the South Korean tech giant Samsung, the Galaxy Note 7, will be unveiled at an event on August 2.
Not many details have been revealed about the device. Samsung has skipped note 6 because the company feels that it will be a complement to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and will unify their product portfolio. Also, the Galaxy Note 7 will minimise confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.
Like all other Samsung’s Note phones, this phone will have a 5.7 inch to 6 inch Super-AMOLED dual edge Display and is expected to come with an iris scanner and Samsung’s stylus, according to tech blogger, Evan Blass.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be announced at an event in New York on August 2 that kicks off at 8:30pm IST. The South Korea company has confirmed that there will be simultaneous events in Rio de Janeiro and London.
Samsung also claimed that the new S Pen, which will be part of the Galaxy Note 7, will come with "added functionalities.”
The iris scanner will come handy for biometric locks and has been claimed to be more reliable than fingerprint scanners. A vivid choice of colours ranging from Black Onyx to Blue Coral will be available for the customers.
The Galaxy Note 7 is rumoured to sport a 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and a 3600mAh battery. With 4GB of RAM, it will offer three inbuilt storage options - 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB which is expandable.
The Galaxy Note 7 to be unveiled in August will have upgraded software and "significantly improved" note features, Samsung mobile boss DJ Koh has said.
