In about a month from now, Samsung Electronics will reveal to the world the new generation of Galaxy Note phablet with a pen; the Galaxy Note 7. But until that day comes, a handful of images has hit the Internet over the weekend, confirming in a way, that the handheld will feature retina scanning technology.
Galaxy Note 7 will apparently inherit Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge design, with those curved edges on both sides. Also, the rumour has it, that the seventh (not sixth, because the OEM is looking to align the S7 and S7 Edge with it) generation of Galaxy Note series phablet will have its ‘wow factor’, an iris scanner. Retina scanning technology seems that it will be the next big thing in the mobile industry, for the next 6 to 12 months.
In addition to the Iris scanner, the Galaxy Note 7 is also expected to come equipped with either the Snapdragon 823 (also known as Snapdragon 821) or the latest Exynos chipset, depending on the market where Samsung will be selling the upcoming phablet. Other specs include a 5.8 to 6 inches Quad HD display, 12 and 8 mega pixels cameras, USB-C port, 6GB of RAM, a battery with at least 3,300 mAh capacity and will be running on Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, with possibility of upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat, in 3 to 6 months time after release.
