Galaxy Note 7: Samsung's Biggest Bet Against The Odds

Manila, Philippines -- With a lot of leaks that have been released before the official launch, the most awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is now officially announced, boasting with some of it's great features like being Water-proof, having an Iris-scanner, a Dual-edged glass, that sports a 5.7-inch screen, Quad HD Resolution (1440 x 2560) and a Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Also identical is the layout of the physical buttons, with the two volume keys high up on the left side, while the power button sits towards the center on the right. Samsung's signature, physical Home button, as always, is available up front, hugged by the capacitive keys for Back and Multitask. The one sure way of telling the the new Note 7 from the S7 edge is the S Pen's slot on the bottom, or by sizing them carefully.

The phone will be made available in a number of colors, including Blue Coral, Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Gold Platinum. Depending on the region, a subset of three of these will be made available, Also, the Note 7 sports an S-Pen that works underwater, and a 64GB of internal storage, that allows you to have more space and capacity on your phone, even without an external SD.

Going back to the screen—traditionally the highlight of the Note series—Samsung is also making some of its TV tech available to the Note 7. More specifically, the open HDR10 standard will be supported, meaning a potentially highly visible improvement in picture quality when watching appropriate titles off Netlix or elsewhere. Main theoretical advantages of HDR10 content include a higher dynamic range—and therefore better contrast—and richer color granularity due to 10 bit color. How well HDR10 really translates onto the screen remains to be seen—but we're definitely interested.

Finally, and because this is likely on the minds of many, the answer is 'No': there isn't a model of the Note 7 with a more conventional, 'flat' screen.
