The new flagship comes with both Qualcomm and Exynos processors, depending on the region, has been rated IP68 for protection from the elements, and features USB Type-C connectivity, an iris scanner, and more.

Just as expected, the next-gen Samsung phablet is now official. Unveiled during a new Unpacked event, the handset is known as Galaxy Note7 and delivers a few unique features, mainly the iris scanning capabilities and Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

According to Samsung Electronics' President of Mobile Communications Business DJ Koh, "The Galaxy Note7 combines productivity and entertainment, and strong security features. Powering a robust ecosystem, it is the ideal device for those who want to achieve more in life." As previously rumored, this handset comes with 15 GB of free cloud storage with Samsung Cloud.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (US) or an Exynos 8890 (other markets), this 5.7-inch handset is the first one to reach the market with a screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Its specs also include a dual pixel 12 MP main camera, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, microSD support, 4G LTE and NFC connectivity, all driven by a non-removable 3500 mAh battery with fast charging. 

Available in blue coral, gold platinum, silver titanium, and black onyx starting on August 19th, Samsung Galaxy Note7 is rated IP68 for protection from the elements and comes with a new S Pen that has a smaller tip and improved pressure sensitivity when compared to its predecessor.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
