The Galaxy Note 7 is the most awaited phablet of 2016 and Samsung will release it on August 2. Much of its specs have been revealed in leaked images and a first video of the phone in action was just posted on YouTube. MobileFunTV has showed a Note 7 with a curved-edge display, which booted up and ran a few applications.
The 25-second video posted by MobileFunTV on YouTube can be watched below:
Previously, Dutch site TechDroider has posted a photo of the Note 7 available in Black Onyx, but the device is expected to come in Silver Titanium and Blue coral versions, as well. In all leaked images, the device appeared with a curved-edge display measuring 5.7-inch, but recently, it was speculated that it will be an always-on display that will show information (time, date and notifications) even if the device is turned off.
Other rumored specs include USB-C charging connectivity (it will allow the device to charge faster), two variants of internal configurations consisting of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip with a dual-core 2.3 GHz Kryo CPU and dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo CPU, or Exynos 8893 chip with a quad-core 2.6 GHz CPU and quad-core 1.6 GHz CPU, each model supporting 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. The battery’s capacity will be increased up to 4000mAh.
The device is expected to feature a built-in iris-scanner, which will allow users to unlock the Note 7 without needing to enter a passcode or to tap on the fingerprint scanner. Rumors suggest that Samsung will introduce new applications such as Dictionary and Speaking, for helping users to quickly translate words to another language, and there will be added an efficient text-to-speech functionality.
On top of that, despite of the speculations that the Note 7 will come pre-installed with the new Android 7 Nougat, in the benchmarking tests was spotted a prototype running on Android 6.1. But if you ask us, we believe that Samsung will opt for Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
