As has been rumoured for some time now, Samsung unveiled their latest Galaxy smartphone today. Called the Galaxy Note 7, it was announced during Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event today and joins the already-existing Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
One of the key features of the new Note 7 is the display, with features a symetrical design with curved glass on both sides and a design that’s available in Black Oynx, Blue Coral and Silver Titanium.
It will also be available in gold in some territories.
The smartphone measures 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9mm, weighs 169 grams and is IP68 water and dust resistant.
It also includes the S-Pen, a fingerprint sensor on the home button and an iris scanner.
The S-Pen also features a brand new design, measuring 200mm long and 20mm wide, it has a 0.7mm diameter tip, weighs just 3 grams and it can now be used even when the screen is wet.
Talking about that screen, on the Note 7 you will find a 5.7 curved Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 515ppi and a Quad HD resolution.
It also claims to double the Note 5’s responsiveness with 4,096 levels of pressure, mobile HDR that will provide a higher dynamic range, as well as the ability to show HDR content at a brightness of 800-nits, which is pretty impressive.
Around the front, you will also find a5-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.7. This is joined by the Dual Pixel 12-megapixel shooter around the back of the device, with an aperture of f/1.7 and optical image stabilisation.
The Note 7 also has Auto HDR on the front and rear camera, with an LED flash on the rear as well as phase detection auto focus.
Inside there is an octa-core Exynos chip in the UK and other regions, which will come alongside 4GB of RAM, a microSD card slot and a 3,500mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will come with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 pre-installed with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface as well as Edge UX from the S7 Edge.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be available to pre-order from August 16th and will be available to pick up from stores on September 2nd.
We haven’t heard full availability just yet, however, GiffGaff and O2 has announced that they will be stocking the device.
Mobile Fun has also stated that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be priced at £749 unlocked, which is quite a hefty cost to pay honestly, especially after considering that the S7 Edge is £640.
