Samsung Galaxy Note 7: All you need to know


The worst kept secret of Samsung's 2016 portfolio, the Galaxy Note 7, will no longer be shamelessly picked on by the rumor mill as the newest iteration of the device is... already official! As it's pretty easy to get lost in all the info that's incoming from all directions, we decided to be a bit more helpful and summarize all the important bits of info in this post. No more lollygagging, check out our coverage about the Note 7 right below.

The essential stuff


Big, bold and beautiful, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 sets a new standard for high-end Android smartphones. It combines cutting-edge hardware with premium design to become the latest (and greatest) member of the Note series. Of course, the 5.7-inch handset comes bundled with a refined S Pen - an advanced digital stylus for sketching, taking down notes, or navigating through the UI. Another stand-out feature is the built-in iris scanner, which is used to identify the device's owner. At the back of the device, we see the highly-acclaimed 12MP camera from the Galaxy S7, known for its speed and quality images.





Diving deeper


Without the shadow of a doubt, the Note 7 is nothing else but the most advanced phone Samsung has ever made. Actually, it's could very well be the most advanced smartphone on the market right now (that's technically not on the shelves yet).

Basically an S7 Edge - 100 mAh battery capacity + Bigger screen & better Screen to Body Ratio + 64 GB base model + Active digitizer pen + IRIS Scanner + Gorilla Glass 5 + Problematic Type C Port (USB 2.0 or 3.0?). Or a Note 5 + 500 mAh battery + Better Screen to Body Ratio + 64 GB Base model + Waterproof and more precise Active digitizer pen + IRIS Scanner + Gorilla Glass 5 + Better Camera + Faster Processor + Problematic Type C Port Would make a good upgrade to my OnePlus One, let's see what reviews say about its battery life and other hidden features.

I would say better wait for next Nexi phones and LG V-20 and let's at least wait for Surface Phone and see what does it bring to the table.

I'd definitely like to see what the Surface Phone has in store. The others, not an option as they lack an active digitizer pen.

Don't use the edge benefits if you want a flat screened version, as that's your only choice right now!

Not enough information. Is the screen still pentile or RGB? Is the memory single lane UFS2.0 or dual lane? Has the new software make better utilisation of the 820? Anands review of the new Moto z has shown that moto has made optimizations to the software that allows it to utilize the 820 more efficiently making it perform better. Even using the same memory as Samsung they were able to pull off higher nand speeds.

What I wanted from this note: Note 6 name, Sd 821/Exynos 8893, 6gb ram (only if properly utilized), 64/128gb + micro-sd slot, dual sim worldwide, 4000 mah battery with 8.1 mm thickness (or better), an additional Rose gold colour, option to decrease resolution to 720p, Flat screen version, slightly thinner top+bottom bezels, 8mp front cam, 1/2.3 lens with back cam, quick charge 3.0 (Exynos 8890 supports 2.0), 4-axis ois, and 1.5 microns just till now! I know I may be asking a lot considering the development timeframe, but hey! That's what you call wishing. The above list might need an update as soon as the full review and specs are released. After all, most of it is surely what many others also wanted!

All I'll say is how much are you willing to pay for that

Knowing the current state of flagship prices, $850 at max for 128gb model.

What's so hilarious in it? The 64gb note 7 would be $800, so the 128gb with my wish list should be 50$ more to give a tough time to the competition.

I don't see anything new and inovative but the iris scaner, and i don't think it's an important feature, i think you can't use it in dark situations. I think Those who got the galaxy s7/s7 edge, won't upgrade
