Samsung announced its latest iteration in the Note lineup dubbed Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and we are here with a list of 5 things that you probably didn’t know about device.
1. IP Certified
Yes! Your read it right. Galaxy Note 7 is the very first Note device from Samsung which is IP68 certified. Firstly, let’s understand what IP actually means. IP stands for ‘Ingress Protection’ and the double digits following it represents – how effective the device is against solid objects such as dust; and against liquids such as water, respectively. So, the bottom line is – the Galaxy Note 7 is protected from immersion in water with a depth of more than 1 meter up to 30 minutes.
2. Iris Scanner
The newly announced Galaxy Note 7 features an Iris Scanner upfront for added security and No, before you guess, it DOESN’T uses the selfie camera for it. According to Samsung, your iris scans are coded in a digital format and scrambled, so nobody can get a hold on anything that will be of any use to them by hacking or stealing your phone, just the way it is with the finger scans. Thus, feel free to use it with Samsung’s new Secret folder that can store all the media, docs, mails, apps and contacts you want to keep a secret.
3. HDR Screen
The Galaxy Note7 features a gorgeous, curved 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen delivering a bold and immersive picture on a smartphone. It is one of the very first phones tour feature an HDR display technology. It is ready to stream HDR video, enabling a cinema-like experience including brighter colors and a deeper black, which ensure users get the full experience that the filmmaker intended.
4. Pressure sensitive S Pen
Ever since the very first Galaxy Note, the S Pen has been the highlighting feature of the Note family and it keeps getting better. The S Pen also gives users the ability to easily create and share GIF animations with Smart Select, and new Air Command functions, including Magnify and Translate, enable users to zoom in on the screen or convert languages by simply hovering. The S Pen can write on the screen even underwater. It can recognize up to 4,096 pressure levels.
5. Gorilla Glass 5
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is the very first device to come with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection above the display and on the back too. According to Corning, phone faces protected by Gorilla Glass 5 have an 80 percent chance of emerging unscathed after falling from heights of up to 1.6 meters of 5.25 feet.
