Among other things, the note told us to expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be available inside Verizon stores on August 19th. This afternoon, another tip has come our way. Once again, it involves the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. This time, the tip appears to be coming from Sprint’s camp.
The picture that accompanies this article is a planogram, and it helps indicate where a product goes on the shelves inside a store in order to boost sales. The card for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 notes (no pun intended) that the unit will have the following features:
- Most powerful and precise S Pen yet
- Water-resistant-just wipe off spills and splashes
- Fast autofocus for clear photos, even in lowlight
- Brilliant dual-edge Super AMOLED display
- 64GB internal memory, plus up to 256GB with microSD card
One day before the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be introduced, more images of the phablet have surfaced. Samsung has loaded up the device with features like the iris scanner which unlocks the phone extremely quickly. A video that we showed you last month displayed how fast the iris scanner can unlock the handset.
Another feature prominently displayed in two ads for the Galaxy Note 7 (one from Samsung Korea and the other from Samsung Taiwan) is the IP68 certification. The Galaxy Note 7 is the first model in the series to offer protection from water. Like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, the Galaxy Note 7 can be submerged in water as deep as five feet for as long as 30 minutes, and escape unscathed.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be equipped with a Type-C USB port. This provides faster data transfers, but also means that the OG Gear VR headset won’t work with the handset. But you VR fans can still go ahead and buy the Galaxy Note 7. A new refreshed version of the headset is on the way and it will support both Type-C USB and microUSB ports. The new headset offers a 110-degree view compared to the 96 degrees on the original model.
Earlier today, we told you about a rumored new battery savings feature that will adjust the resolution of the screen from 1440 x 2560 to as low as 720 x 1280. By doing this, the user can slow down the display’s drain on the 3500mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be unveiled tomorrow in New York City with pre-orders set to begin August 3rd.
