More about Galaxy Note7
The basic specs are similar to Samsung Galaxy S7. There is Octacore processor which is either Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 depending on region. The Ram is 4GB which some of you may think is bit less compared to 6GB of One Plus 3. But we think 4 GB is more than enough. 6GB at this point is absolutely overkill and not needed.
The camera specifications are also same as that of Samsung Galaxy S7 which is one of the best in the market right now. There is 12 MP back camera (12MP Rear Facing with OIS, f/1.7, 1.4µm, 1/2.6″ powered by Sony IMX260 or Samsung S5K2L1)and 5 MP front camera (with, f/1.7, 1.12µm powered by Samsung S5K4E6).
Screen size is 5.7 inches and resolution stands at 1440p with dual edges. It is not 4k as some of us have been expecting. We all know Samsung has best mobile screens in the market right now. So no doubts here. The Samsung Galaxy follows the same design core as that of recent galaxy phones like S7 with 3D Glass back.
There are few changes made keeping in mind the Note series like the back of the phone is slightly curved. this makes the phone easier to hold than it’s similar counter parts like iPhone 6s Plus. Samsung is offering color options like Blue Coral,Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, Gold Platinum.
Now coming to exciting features exclusive to Samsung Galaxy Note7. There is Iris scanner introduced in the phone that scans your eyes to unlock phone. The iris scanner lies upper side of the screen. Iris scanner works good but finger print scanner works faster. Iris scanner in the phone needs more refinement.
There is another new Mobile HDR which enhances the display configurations of the phone. It will make phone with more contrast and brightness. This feature before this phone was only available in high end TV’s made by Samsung LG ,etc.
The most important feature of the phone , S-pen. The note series is known more its S pen. The new S pen is now more sensitive and can be used for more detailed works. It will even work if there is some water on phone . It works with magnetic resonance technology. The new S pen is designed so you can not insert it the wrong way in the phone. This has been problem with many user which resulted in damage to the S pen.
There is new USB – C type port. Say goodbye to old charger pin. USB – C type port was also expected in Samsung Galaxy S7 but was missing. Samsung Galaxy Note7 also supports wireless charging.
Coming to software part, the phone is powered by Android Marshmallow with Samsung’s own UI touchwiz.
