Samsung officially launched the Galaxy Note 7 the 2nd of August 2016, the latest in its line of stylus-equipped flagship smartphones. The Note 7, blends many of the features from last year’s Note 5 with the design and waterproofing of this year’s excellent S7 Edge. The Note 7 will be available from all four major carriers on August 19th, with preorders starting today, August 3rd. Samsung says that pricing will be commensurate with prior Note devices and will be higher than the S7 Edge, which is about $770 to $800, depending on where you look. An unlocked version of the Note 7 will be available in the US at a later date.
For sometime Samsung has differentiated the power-user focused Note line from its more mainstream handsets by giving it specs a little more. This year’s approach is a little different, however: inside, the Note 7 is virtually indistinguishable from the S7 or S7 Edge. It has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor (in North America, China, and Japan; other markets will have Samsung’s own Exynos processor), same 4GB of RAM, same quick charging and quick wireless charging, and same 12-megapixel camera with f/1.7 lens and optical stabilization as the S7 series. The Note 7 is similarly water resistant and has support for microSD cards, both of which were not present in last year’s Note 5. The Note 7 has 64GB of internal storage, and its battery has been increased to 3,500mAh.
My verdict for this device from the videos i have seen soo far
A great phone for the Note fans, Samsung’s melded together the great features of their 2016 flagship and also some great new features with the S-pen
