After a few weeks of the international launch, Samsung has brought its latest flagship, the Galaxy Note 7, to the Indian markets. The company launched a range of smart devices, but the smartphone grabbed the prime spot in the launch event. The latest Note series smartphone comes top of the line features and is supposed to give its competition a run for their money.
Samsung, this time, took a bold step by ditching flat screen altogether for their flagship, and the Galaxy Note 7 was launched with a curved screen only. It comes with a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED curved display and it is covered with Gorilla Glass 5. The screen quality and features are top notch and is considered the best in the industry. The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Samsung’s own UI on top.
Being powered by an octa-core Exynos 8890 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz and 4 GB of RAM, the device is really a powerhouse. It supports internal storage of 64 GB and it can be further expanded up to 256 GB using a microSD card. Besides the fancy S Pen Stylus and its functionalities, the Galaxy Note 7 is water resistant, has heart rate sensor, fingerprint scanner and an iris scanner.
The camera sensors too come with new features. There is a 12 Mp shooter on the back that comes with an LED flash, dual-pixel PDAF, OIS and f/1.7 aperture. The front sensor is of 5 MP and it also has f/1.7 aperture. A 3500 mAh battery powers the device and it supports fast charging too using both wired and wireless chargers. It will be made available in Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and Black Onyx colour options. The Galaxy Note 7 is up for preorders and will ship starting September 2 for Rs. 59900.
