Samsung Galaxy Note 7 receives FCC certification

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 receives FCC certification
Things are moving rapidly with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and this morning comes word that six North American variants of the phablet have received certification from the FCC. These models include the SM-N930V (Verizon), SM-N930A (AT&T), SM-N930P (Sprint), SM-N930T (T-Mobile), SM-N930R4 (U.S. Cellular) and SM-N930W8 (Canada).

All of these models should be powered by the Snapdragon 821 chipset carrying a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. In most other regions of the world, the Galaxy Note 7 will likely be driven by the Exynos 8893 SoC. The phablet is expected to feature a 5.7 or 5.8-inch Super AMOLED screen, but a listing from India's export-import site Zauba left the door open for a 6-inch version of the device. Regardless of the size, the display will have a 1440 x 2560 resolution.

Will the Galaxy Note 7 come with 4GB or 6GB of RAM? Geekbench tests say we should expect the former, although there are some holding out for the higher amount. The 12MP rear-facing camera should be the same one employed by the Samsung Galaxy S7. That means it will have an aperture of f/1.7, OIS and PDAF. A 5MP camera adorns the front of the unit for selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is the job of what could be a 4000mAh battery stuffed inside the phone.

A fingerprint scanner will be embedded inside the home button, and earlier this morning we showed you screenshots of the iris scanner in action. Another listing on Zauba has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 7 will be waterproof.

With the FCC certification, Samsung can check off one more task that needed to be done before the company unveils the device on August 2nd.
