Waterproof Note 7 – an important announcement of Samsung Unpacked 2016

Samsung Unpacked Presentation is one of the most prominent technology events of the year, the results of which have become one of the most interesting to users . It’s not the first year that the company has not been tired of surprising and pleasing with its new devices and technologies. Unpacked 2016 brought with it a number of announcements, the most significant of which was, as expected previously, PHABLET Galaxy Note 7. Many advanced users like smartphones, the display size is a little smaller than that of the tablet. Notebook lineages are among the number of such devices.


The most interesting users who saw the light during the presentation, of course, was Galaxy Note 7. The smartphone was equipped with an iridoscaner (scanner of the iris) and has water resistance, which is a stronger characteristic of protection against water than moisture resistance. Perfection of the iridoscanner took five years. Reporting from the presentation was conducted by many resources, including engadget.com .


Novelty supports wireless charging and comes with a new stylus Pen, the expected characteristics of which were considered almost a month before the announcement of the new phone . Among the characteristics of the new stylus is its protection from dust and water and increased response speed. Note 7 can hold under water not more than half an hour, provided that the depth does not exceed 1.5 meters. It is the first smartphone line Note, certified in accordance with IP 68.


Power Note 7 exceeds the corresponding indicators of Note 5 by 30%. At the same time, the power so important for modern devices is higher by 60%.


Samsung notes that Note 7 is the smartest of its existing smartphones at the moment. It, like the Galaxy S7 Edge, is characterized by curved lines. The diagonal of the novelty screen is 5.7 inches. The QHD screen of the new Fablelet is not just huge, but it also has the appropriate functionality – improved multitasking.


Thanks to the new function of the Motion Wallpaper, the wallpaper “comes to life” when you shake the device. More rounded and quite pleasant design of pictograms.


The front and back panels are protected with Gorilla Glass 5 glass, which adds strength to the phone. The novelty will be offered to users in four colors – black, gray, golden and the color of light blue coral.


S Pen allows you to transfer from one language to another, when the user holds a stylus over a word or phrase. In Always On Display, it’s now possible to attach notes. The Smart Select function provides conversion to GIF of any animation from the screen.


Note 7 allows you to play HDR-video. Additional pleasure for connoisseurs of digital entertainment will be the fact that Samsung provides 11 free games to the Galaxy Game Pack to all owners of Note 7. Vulkan API makes Note 7 a game designed for the game.


Note 7 has already familiar to users of S7 12-megapixel camera with Note 7. The difference is that the novelty supports the shooting of HDR-video. The amount of the built-in drive is doubled for all versions and is 64 gigabytes (UFS 2.0). In addition, the user can expand the storage capacity of the device using microSD memory cards up to 256 gigabytes. The maximum memory card capacity supported by SDXC technology is 2 terabytes.


The battery capacity of such a giant phone is 3500 mAh, which is less than the capacity of the Galaxy S7 battery. Note 7 comes with a USB Type-C connector, but is equipped with an adapter that allows the use of micro-USB cables.


Good news for users is the presence of a slot for headphones. Launching Samsung Cloud, the company offers users 15 gigabytes of free space in the new service for each purchased Note 7.


The new giant smartphone is characterized by a Knox security solution implemented at the hardware level. It should also be added that the Samsung web browser uses an iridoscanner to enter the sites. The company also introduced Samsung Pass, a password store operating in conjunction with an iridoscaner. Samsung Pay, by the way, will also work with the iridoscanner.


The new smartphone features support for Bluetooth 4.2 LE, NFC, GPS, GLONASS and Beidou. The device dimensions in millimeters are 153.5 (height) x 73.9 (width) x 7.9 (thickness). Thus, although the novelty is a gigantic phone, it is difficult to call Note 7 a thick device .


Users hoped that the processor of the novelty would be an improved Snapdragon 821 (or 823). In reality, the Note 7 processor was quad-core Snapdragon 820 (with two 2.15-gigahertz and two 1.6-gigahertz cores) and a fast graphics Adreno 530.


As is typical for high-end smartphones from Samsung, in some markets will be offered the option Note 7 based on its own chipset company Exynos 8890, already known to users on the Galaxy S7, noted on the pages of the resource phonearena.com . This chipset is comparable in its characteristics to Snapdragon 820, therefore there is no question that any version will have tangible advantages over another. However, earlier it was reported that the Galaxy S7 with the Exynos 8890 was faster .


Both versions of Note 7 will be shipped with four gigabytes of RAM LPDDR4.

Sales of new items will begin on August 19, 2016. The audience gathered at the presentation showed a video in 360 degrees using the camera Gear 360.


The new version of the virtual reality helmet Gear VR, also presented during the last presentation, is characterized by compatibility with the latest Samsung devices, as well as support for micro-USB and USB Type C.

In addition, Samsung introduced a new fitness strap Gear Fit 2.
