Television ad for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 teases some features (VIDEO)

This is it. The real deal. A video posted to YouTube by Samsung Mobile Korea is the first television commercial we've seen for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. And it's all about teasing some of the features that will be offered by the 5.8-inch phablet. Features like the fingerprint scanner and the pattern lock are first out of the gate, although the whole device is not displayed. The handset will also offer an iris scanner that can unlock the phone in .22 seconds.

The rumored IP68 certification is also teased. The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be the first in the Galaxy Note line to be waterproof. The phablet should be able to get submerged in up to 5-feet of water for as long as 30 minutes, and live to tell the tale. And a row of numbers from 0 to 5 lights up with a question mark after the last digit. This signifies Samsung's decision to skip the Galaxy Note 6 name and go straight to the Note 7. We've already explained Sammy's reasoning here; it doesn't want the phablet's name to include a number less than the one used on the Samsung Galaxy S line for fear that consumers would think that it offered older technology.

The ad ends with the confirmation that the Galaxy Note 7 will be launched in August, We should see the phablet unveiled at Samsung's next Unpacked event in New York City on August 2nd.

It's confirmed to not have 6gb of memory, the same terrible camera, and the same specs similar to the S7. Samsung is going the samey route with the Note phones.

You, sir, are the very definition of hypcrisy. I remember you implying android fans run after specs and synthetic benchmarks when doesn't matter in real life. Now when Samsung decides to optimize the Ram instead of simply increasing and hampering the battery (One Plus 3) by bringing TST tech you have problem too.

Dude. You're a straight up hypocrite. Here are a few things you need to do: move out of your parent's basement, get a job, find a hobby, and get laid.

That camera you say is so terrible is way better than icrap. At least 4gb's of memory is better than 2gb's like icrap has. Nothing is 100% confirmed tell August 2ed.

0:07 probably confirming it has front camera flash and later it is waterproof. (First I was thought she was on drugs or something)

And 0:05, is that a flat screen?

Hard to tell since the camera facing directly on the screen and not on the sides but if you pause at 0:02 at the correct frame, you'll be able to make out the bezels appear back and not inline with screen thereby indicating it might have edge screen.

Password should be complicated ? Good selfie depends on lighting ? Foreign language needs a rote memorization ? Falling into water means a dead-end ? 5, then 6 ? NO NOTE

What a rubbish add. I mean the music is not futuristic, and what is the women doing there? Come on you can do better than that. Has anyone seen the Dyson hoover or Sneff or Miele German adds. Samsung you iDiots, learn from Germans.... Look at the BMW, and Mercedes adds. Pure quality and science matured. Dumbass Damdung.

BMW and MB ads are quality and science? In what ways? BMW ads are pretty much the same from many years ago. MB does show passionate ads once in a while but wow? Aren't you the biased dumdum not knowing that this isn't a real ad rather a teaser

Hmm i start to think that this howl Samsung thing is relay overrated it is Just same S7 edge with similar specs, little bit bigger and s-pen nothing special by the way the design is still from last years Note 5 and S6 series. And for others i m not a fanboy of anything and i m not a dis liker.
