General News Samsung Galaxy Note7: Top 7 features you should know
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note7 and it is set to go on sale in select markets shortly. If reports are to be believed, it could be launched in India as early as August 11 . The Galaxy Note7 will complete the trifecta of Samsung’s money churner flagship smartphones that also include the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

The Samsung Galaxy Note7 features a 5.7-inch QHD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset or Exynos 8890 chipset depending upon the region, 4GB RAM, and 64GB onboard storage that can be expanded using a microSD card. The phablet also comes with a 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,500mAh battery, fingerprint scanner, iris scanner, and connectivity options like 4G LTE support.

Here are the seven noteworthy features of the new Galaxy Note7.

Display: Samsung has retained the 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with QHD (2560×1440 pixels) resolution. But the talking point here is that Samsung has opted for a dual-edged curved screen similar to what you get on the Galaxy S7 edge. The difference though is in the curvature, and the screen on the Galaxy Note7 is flatter. Additionally, the rear glass panel too is curved, which makes the whole device feel more symmetrical than the S7 edge. The display is also protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which the company claims can survive a drop from up to a height of 1.6 meters.

Processor: Samsung has surprisingly not opted for the latest and best chipsets under the hood. The Galaxy Note7 is powered by either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset or Exynos 8890 octa-core chipset. The chipset offered will depend upon the region, and the variant coming to India will mostly be powered by the Exynos chipset. The processors are paired with 4GB of RAM.

Cameras: Samsung has used the same combination of cameras that are on offer on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. But that’s not a bad thing, as they are among the best that is on offer on smartphones today. At the back is a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera with f/1.7 aperture, OIS, and support for 4K and slow-mo video recording. Up front is a 5-megapixel selfie camera with wide-angle lens and selfie flash that essentially lights up the screen to help during low-light conditions.

Security: Security is a big deal for most people, Samsung has opted for a two prong approach. For one, it has retained the fingerprint scanner that is embedded into the home button up front. For the first-time ever a Samsung device is protected by an iris scanner, which the company says is more secure than a fingerprint scanner. Similar to Windows Hello, Samsung’s iris scanner too relies on an infrared camera that works well in low light, and can be used to secure apps, photos, notes and more. There is also a feature called ‘Secure Folder’, which is essentially a separated folder that adds an extra layer of authentication to keep private and personal information safe.

Durability : Just like the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung’s new phablet too is tough enough to survive the outdoors. The Galaxy Note7 boasts IP68 certification, which make it resistant to water and dust. The certification means that the phablet can be submerged in up to 1.5 meter water for up to 30 minutes. The water resistance works even if the S-Pen is removed.

S Pen: In the past couple of years, the S Pen has undergone quite a few improvements. This year with the launch of the Galaxy Note7, the S Pen gets a tweaked design, which ensures that you cannot slide it in backwards and cripple it, which was the case with the Galaxy Note 5. As for functionality, the stylus now boasts a 0.7mm tip and supports up to 4,096 levels of pressure along with latency of less than 50 milliseconds. In other words, Samsung promises an experience similar to writing on a paper using a pen. For the first time ever, the S Pen can also be used underwater. The S-Pen also gets a few software features like the ability to create GIFs out of videos by selecting the start and end point or to translate words by hovering the S-Pen over them, as well as the ability to create memos without unlocking the screen, and these memos can be pinned to the Always On Display.

Samsung Cloud: Samsung is going the Apple way by offering its users iCloud like storage. The new service is called ‘Samsung Cloud’ and Galaxy Note7 users will get 15GB of free storage out-of-the-box. Samsung says the feature provides “continuous backup and easy transfer of content including data, apps, settings and layouts between devices.”
