Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Note7 has been released. According to the company, the latest device packs a superfluity of features that are expected to set a new standard for the large-screen device sector.
Craige Fleischer, Director of Integrated Mobility at Samsung Electronics South Africa stated that “The Galaxy Note7 combines productivity and entertainment, with strong security features. The device strikes a balance between work and play, enabling people to achieve more than what they thought possible on a smartphone. Powering a robust ecosystem, it is the ideal device for those who want to achieve more in life.”
Here are the main features of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7
- Advanced Security
According the company, Samsung understands the importance of keeping content on users’ phones protected. Coupled with Samsung Knox, the Galaxy Note7 provides heightened security and privacy, with biometric authentication, including fingerprint scanner and iris scanning technology. The Galaxy Note7 additionally features Secure Folder, a separated folder that adds an extra layer of authentication to keep private and personal information safe.
- Galaxy Note7 S Pen
The 7th generation S Pen, according to Samsung, is more than just a writing tool – it is the gateway to getting more done efficiently and accurately. At launch, Samsung revealed that users can bring ideas to life the moment inspiration strikes without unlocking the screen by using Screen off memo and simply pinning the memo to the Always On Display.
The Galaxy Note7 features a curved 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen. The device is also ready to stream HDR video which, as stated by the company, enables a cinema-like environment including brighter colours and a deeper black, which ensure users get the full perspective that the filmmaker intended.
- Creating Connected Experiences
For people who live to create, tell stories and transport people to entirely new worlds, the Galaxy Note7 can be used with the new high-resolution (3840×1920) Gear 360 camera, to capture, edit and share 360-degree images and videos on the go. These memories can then be shared with friends via platforms including YouTube 360 and Facebook and can be relived with the ultra-immersive Gear VR.
