Samsung Unveils the New Galaxy Note7; More at B&H Photo

Mobile News: New Phablet Debuted at Samsung's 2016 Unpacked Event

/ -- NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 02, 2016) - Samsung debuted the latest iteration of its Galaxy-brand smartphone today, the Galaxy Note7. The reveal confirms significant upgrades to the camera setup, S Pen, processing chipset, storage features, and overall design.

As with this year's Galaxy S7 edge, the Note 7 will feature a dual-curved QHD Super AMOLED display, though with the series signature screen size: 5.7". The phablet will also utilize Samsung's new Always-On Display, which continuously displays time, date, and notification data even when the device is asleep. In addition to these features, the Note 7 will support HDR video playback, making it one of the first smartphones ever to do so.

Samsung has enhanced the Note 7's camera array, as well. It now features a 12MP rear shooter, with dual-pixel technology that Samsung promises will allow you to shoot more detailed photos, even in low-light conditions. A 5MP selfie camera is also on board.

Two features that were brought back in this year's Galaxy S variants also make their triumphant return in the Note 7: IP68-rated waterproof and dustproof protection, and a microSD card slot that allows users to add up to 256GB of memory to their base storage of 64GB. Battery life has also been greatly improved for the Note 7. Now sporting a muscular 3500mAh battery, the Note 7 should have enough power to sustain its impressive performance for countless hours.

In addition to this impressive list of features, Samsung also announced that the Note 7 would incorporate its new iris scanning technology. The built-in iris scanner promises to add an extra layer of security to the Note 7 by converting users' iris scan into a digital signal only they can use.

Samsung also overhauled the Note 7's S Pen. The tip thickness was cut in half -- down to 0.7mm -- and like the Galaxy Note 7 itself, the S Pen is now both water- and dust-resistant. Responsiveness has been refined, and a new suite of functionality was created specifically for the S Pen, including text translation and GIF creation.

All these features -- combined with a new chipset, the latest version of Android OS, and a suite of compatible accessories -- mean that the new Note 7 could very well be Samsung's strongest phablet showing yet.

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.

Keeping your information private and protected has always been a top concern. So we developed one of the most foolproof ways to keep that information accessible only to you-iris scanning.
