Samsung posted their firsttelevision commercial on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on YouTube. The short video teases some of the features that will be offered in the soon-to-release phablet.
Although the entire device is not displayed, some of the first things we notice are thefingerprint scanner and the pattern lock. Only yesterday, we covered howSamsung Galaxy Note 7 wallpapers were leaked only a couple of days before the launch. If you take a look, then you’d see the wallpaper are nothing new, not innovative, other than a couple ofpastel geometric wallpapers, which are something youget to see much.
In the video, therumoured IP68 certification is also teased. The Note 7 is expected to be waterproof and should be able to stay submergedin up to 5-feet of water for maximum 30 minutes. Moreover, a rowof numbers ranging from 0 to 5 lights up with a question mark after the last digit. This is probably hinting at Samsung’s decision to skip Galaxy Note 6 for Note 7. We believe that the significant jump in the name was made to match it with that ofSamsung Galaxy S line for fear that consumers would think they are being offered the older technology.
