Samsung?s spectacular Q2 results showed the company is doing very well, thanks to the well-received?Galaxy S7 series. Needless to say, all eyes are set on the impending Galaxy Note 7 release date. Meanwhile, Samsung?s Korean unit has released an official promotional ad of the upcoming Note device, which is believed to be very powerful among the Note series released thus far. Apart from the interesting theme and visual effects, the ad also confirms some of the key specifications of the phablet.
With the new ad, we now have confirmation that the South Korean tech giant is indeed skipping the name ?Note 6? and moving straight to ?Note 7.? This move is apparently to keep the number system same among all the high-end Galaxy devices earmarked for a particular year. For instance, this year?s flagship series is ?Galaxy S7? and ?Galaxy S7 Plus.? Hence, the Note 5 successor has been named Note 7 instead.
The promo ad shows multiple ways of unlocking the device using fingerprints and fingers. Recently, a video of an alleged Note 7 got leaked?showcasing an iris scanner in action. The authentication was done much quicker and it definitely looked like a good addition to the power-packed device. It?s easy to see why the fingerprint scanners are going to be pass? very soon. However, this ad doesn?t confirm the existence of such a biometric mechanism.
The ad also shows phones getting immersed in water, confirming the waterproofing capability of the upcoming device. Also, somewhere in the video, a girl makes use of a lamp to brighten a selfie shot taken with the help of the new phablet. Even though we are not sure what it means, the assumption is that perhaps the front-facing snapper has a mounted LED flash as well.
Other than these features, we have heard in the past that the Galaxy Note 7 will sport either a 5.7 or a 5.8-inch display, along with a QHD resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. The expectation is that this device will run Android 7 Nougat out of the box.
Under the hood, this smartphone will reportedly come powered by the advanced Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC. The SD821 is over-clocked when compared to the SD820 and it offers much better performance.
Except for the U.S. and China, other parts of the world will be receiving an Exynos variant of the Galaxy Note 7. In both cases, the internal configurations will be backed by 4GB of RAM.
