Samsung today announced its latest in the Galaxy Note series, the Galaxy Note 7.
Its latest large-screen device features a curved 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, which Samsung says is ready to stream HDR video with brighter colours and a deeper black. The Galaxy Note 7 features an octa-core (2.3GHz Quad + 1.6GHz Quad) processor, which should offer plenty of power, along with 4GB RAM.
The Galaxy Note 7 also packs 64GB of internal storage, though this can be expanded thanks to microSD support of up to 256GB.
This handset can be used creatively in tandem with the Gear 360 camera to capture, edit, and share 360-degree images. These can then be shared on Facebook or YouTube, and can be enjoyed with a Gear VR headset. It also offers a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera.
As rumoured, the Galaxy Note 7 features an iris scanner for added security and to authenticate secure purchases made on Samsung Pay. Then there’s Secure Folder, a separated folder that adds an extra layer of authentication to keep private and personal information safe.
The Galaxy Note 7 will be available from August 16 and will be available in Blue Coral, Silver Titanium, and Black Onyx. Those who pre-order the Galaxy Note 7 in Ireland from Carphone Warehouse, Three Ireland, Tesco, or Vodafone will be rewarded with a brand new Gear VR headset.
