Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Note 7 phablet earlier this month during a New York City event. And, despite it not officially being released, retailers around the globe have begun taking pre-orders. According to Korean publications, Samsung will make sure its supplies are in place so the device can be purchased on the day it’s officially released.
It wasn’t long ago that iDigitalTimes.com noted excitement growing for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, although the company had yet to make an announcement about it. In several markets, pre-orders are being taken for it.
BGR, however, spotted some new pictures on the Chinese Weibo site that shows a device which looks similar to the upcoming Note 7. According to the pictures, it appears the Note 7 will come in three colors, have the S Pen, be an all-glass design and will even have an iris scanner.
The Note 7 will have the following specifications:
- 7-inch 2K screen
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip (dual core 1.6 KHz Kryo and Dual-core 2.3 GHz Kyro)
- Exynos 8893 chip (Quad-core 1.6 GHz and Quad-Core 2.6GHz)
- 3600mAh battery with Type-C 1.0 reversible connector to ensure rapid battery charging.
- 6GB RAM
Based on information from Gotta Be Mobile, the device will use cameras found in the Galaxy S7, with the potential for one camera to be 13 megapixels instead of 12MP. It’s got a rapid f/1.7 aperture camera so pictures can be taken quickly. It has dual phase detection and large sensor to capture light quicker. According to the tech site, this means clear, quicker pictures without any distortion or blurriness, even when there’s not a lot of light.
