Products that some of us are unaware of but that others are already waiting for like the famous Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The new Samsung phablet is already a reality that we all knew and that Samsung has made official, but in a rather atypical way as we can see.
In this act device has not been named until the endUntil then, there has been a detailed discussion of the elements and features that this new Samsung phablet has, going through its functions and even talking about the possible accessories that the phablet will have. Once this was concluded, the CEO of Samsung introduced the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7.

Security, a strong point of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7
The new Samsung phablet will have the maximum security that is currently on the market. This security not only offered by the fingerprint sensor that the device has but also by the iris scanner that incorporates the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and that will be compatible with the rest of the device's security tools and functions that Android 6 and the future Android 7 incorporate. In addition, a secure folder (part of the internal storage) is incorporated where we can save any document that will remain safe from strangers in the terminal through its high encryption and new security technology, Samsung Pass. We can only access this place through the iris scanner, fingerprint sensor and code created with the S-Pen.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 maintains the design of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, a design that comes with a screen curved on both sides but in this case we have a larger screen, a 5,7 inch high resolution screen. This screen will have a great companion, a new S Pen that will make the productivity of the owners of this device radically change. Currently the new S Pen has been modified to the point of going from 1,7 mm in tip thickness to 0,6 mm in thickness. In addition, just by touching the screen, this new S Pen will activate the New Features in TouchWiz and Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Much has been said about the new interface and it seems that in this Samsung Galaxy Note 7 we will have it in a generalized way, that is, it will be in all models and variants of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Unfortunately we have nothing about the possible bending of the stylus, although we have seen that it can work as a support for the phablet.
Another novelty that Samguns Galaxy Note 7 brings to the range is water resistance that other models of the S7 family have and that this Note also brings with it, although it will be the same certificate that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge currently has, so it will not be as waterproof as some users would like. Samsung has not said anything about it, but one of the first tests that this device will pass will be the IP68 certification Well, many owners of the Galaxy S7 Edge are not happy with the water resistance of their devices.
This phablet will not only be oriented to the business world. It will also be a device for entertainment where the S Pen can function as a support for the device, something that has been talked about a lot and Samsung has only shown in "passing" in the presentation, but it seems to work. The Galaxy Note 7 will offer HDR in its images, a high range of video games and Vulkan compatibility. As for the camera, this new device does not have the same camera as the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, but offers an improved camera with a higher resolution in the images. This makes the device require a large internal storage. So the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has 64 GB of internal storage it can expand up to 256 Gb through the microsd slot that has.
The autonomy has been improved thanks to the USB-C and its new large battery
Wireless charging or rather autonomy is another interesting point. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has one usb-C output that will allow a fast charge but that we can also change for wireless charging. In any case we have a 3.500 mAh battery that will make us forget to charge the mobile for quite some time. The fast charge of this device is still Quick Charge 2.0, an obsolete Qualcomm technology but that is giving very good results in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and that great things are expected in this new phablet since this one has a USB-C port and the Galaxy S7 doesn't.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will not wait for the IFA in Berlin but will arrive on the market before that, specifically next August 19, although we still do not know the price that this new Samsung terminal will have.
First impressions of this new Samsung Galaxy Note 7
Everyone expected much more from this new phablet, not in vain Samsung itself has skipped the numbering, which it suspected to be a better model, but as many warned, The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is still a vitaminized Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. A phablet that incorporates some things that Samsung must have included in the Galaxy S7 Edge such as the USB-C port or the iris scanner. In any case, apparently so far, I think the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be a device that will amaze many, not only for its possible performance but for the rest of the elements, something that will make let's forget about the 6 Gb of ram that does not have 4.000 mAh battery that neither has or the S Pen that bends… .Elements that many will miss and that we will not see, at least in this model. But the scariest question or fact for the end user will be How much will this Samsung Galaxy Note 7 be worth? Y Is it really worth the difference in price between the Galaxy Note 7 and the rest of Samsung devices or mobile phones on the market? What do you think?
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will go on sale for 849 euros, somewhat higher if we refer to dollars, which will be the currency with which we can first buy this phablet. As for the screen, in this case it will use the new Gorilla Glass 5, technology that other Samsung models do not use.
