There is not much left to be known about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note7 smartphone, thanks to the rumors and conjectures so far! The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is its top of the line device that is known for its features and compatibility with Stylus. It is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year, and will be officially unveiled on August 2.
While there are just a couple of days left for the Samsung's biggie to get official, a new leak has revealed a set of official press renders ahead of its launch. Leaked by @onleaks, the new set of photos of the Galaxy Note7 has given a better look of the upcoming smartphone.
As seen in the alleged press photos of the Galaxy Note7, Samsung will introduce the phone in black, silver and blue colour variants. The blue variant of the phone dons a gold bezel, which makes it look more attractive than other versions.
Here we give you more details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone:
Metal and glass Design:
The Galaxy Note7 is believed to have a metal body design with glass rear panel, like the Galaxy S7. What is to take note is that this time Galaxy Note7 will come in a single variant, adorning curved edge display. Measuring in at 153.5×73.9×7.9 mm and 169 grams, it will be marginally thinner and heavier than the previous generation Note 5 smartphone that measures 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm in dimension and weighs in at 171 grams. However, the dimensions also suggest that the new Galaxy Note would be slightly narrower, which could be due to its curved edge display and almost negligible side bezel.
A QHD display:
As per the previous reports, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note7 smartphone will feature a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD display, offering 2k 1440 resolution for a crisp and sharp visual experience.
SD 820 chipset power:
The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset, and another variant with Exynos version, which are the same processor variants as available on the Galaxy S7. The chipset is expected to be paired with 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded by another 256GB using a microSD card.
Water and dust resistance:
Rumor reports have also suggested that the upcoming Galaxy Note7 would have an IP68 rating, making it water and dust resistant, just like the Galaxy S7 models.
Android Nougat on board!
A recent report suggested that the Galaxy Note 7 would be shipped with Android 7 Nougat out-of-the-box. We are not sure if this would happen, though the new report sourced Android Developers blog, to state that, "Google confirmed that a "consumer release" of Android 7 Nougat will be coming by the end of Summer, not in Autumn, hence there are chances that Note 7 could feature the same OS at the time of launch."
Bigger pixel Camera:
The Note7 will most likely feature the same 12MP Dual Pixel f/1.7 rear camera and 5MP front facing camera specs as the Galaxy S7, which means that the phone should be good to perform in low light conditions, and result in better pictures.
Iris scanner as well as fingerprint scanner:
As per the previous reports, Samsung Galaxy Note7 will not only feature a fingerprint scanner, but also come with an iris scanner for enhanced security of the phone.
USB Type C Connectivity:
The latest leak also confirms the presence of USB Type-C reversible port on the Galaxy Note 7. Other connectivity options of the phone are expected to be dual-SIM, 4G LTE, Wifi, Bluetooth and more.
Improved S Pen:
It is expected that the Galaxy Note7 will feature an improved S-Pen, which would have 4,096 levels of pressure and a latency of less than 50 milliseconds, resulting in an experience similar to writing on paper with a pen. It will also have an S-Pen feature that will let users translate words by hovering the S-Pen on them. It will also let users create GIFs out of videos.
Samsung Galaxy Note7 price
A new report also suggested that the Galaxy Note7 will be priced at Euro 850 (approx. Rs 63,300) in France. However, this doesn't mean that its India pricing would be same. The company is expected to launch the phone at an aggressive price point in India.
