According to the latest rumour, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-order will begin at T-Mobile, next week. We have already covered that Note 7 is likely to be released on August 2 which makes it obvious that the device should be up for pre-order from next week.
The phablet will be the successor to the Galaxy Note 5. It’s worth noting that there has been no official word on the phone’s pricing and availability as of now.
A previous leaked video and render had revealed how Galaxy Note 7 and its S-Pen would look like. According to some sources, the handset will feature a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED 2560×1440 pixels resolution display. It’ll run on the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system out of the box and is likely to come with either Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC or Exynos 8893 SoC, depending on the region. Rumour is that it’ll come packed with 64GB inbuilt storage, sports 12-megapixel primary rear camera with a LED flashlight and a 5-megapixel secondary front snapper onboard for Video calling and better selfies. The device is going to come packed with a huge 3600mAh battery (which is similar to the battery of the Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone) that promises to deliver up to 20 hours of video at maximum brightness on a single charge.
According to another leak, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will come with Iris Scanner. The feature will add security measures to the device. While the fingerprint scanner will be used to unlock the phone, the iris scanner will be employed to complete the task in less than a second.
Another exciting rumour that emerged a couple of days ago is that the device is likely to be compatible with new Gear VR headset. Some of the other features the device will have are, a revamped TouchWiz “Grace” UX, a hybrid UFS/microSD card slot and a USB Type-C port for connectivity.
