As expected, Samsung Electronics on Tuesday unveiled the Galaxy Note 7. However, it came with interesting features such as Iris Scanner, HDR content and Gorilla Glass, firsts in any smartphones.

DJ Koh, President, Mobile Communications unveiled the Galaxy Note 7 and as romoured had it, it's a 5.7-inch device and comes in four interesting colours of Black Onyx, Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and all-new Blue Coral.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also comes with a HDR and 64GB of internal memory as against the rumoured 32GB. It is also expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.

 

With the Note 7, Samsung has skipped a number in its Note series – i.e. the Note 6.

Clarifying on this, Samsung had earlier reasoned saying, “First, the Galaxy Note7 will complement our Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and unify our product portfolio. Second, the Galaxy Note7 will minimize confusion about the latest mobile technology from Samsung, and provide full alignment with Galaxy S smartphone.”

“Galaxy Note7 will help people do more in work, at home and everywhere in between. We can’t wait to tell you more about it,” Samsung added.
