Samsung Galaxy Note 7 renders out, Features iris scanner

Samsung have announced that they will be launching the
much awaited Note successor the new Note 7 on August 2nd. Rumors
have been coming from all fronts about the new features the company will be
packing the device with.
As we all know, rumors are to be taken as grains of
salts, but here are the most viable rumors that could make reality.
The Galaxy Note 7
The Galaxy Note 7
is expected to come with a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display and feature
the same dual-edge design that Samsung has on the Galaxy S7 Edge. Rumors are
also pointing toward the device coming with 6GB of RAM, a 12MP rear camera, 5MP
front camera, and running on a Snapdragon 820 (or possibly 821) in the US, and
on Samsung’s Exynos 8890 SoC internationally.
Cell carrier prices will be pretty consistent, and here
in the US the top 5 including T-Mobile, US Cellular, Sprint, Verizon, and
AT&T will be featuring the launch. The latest launch date prices should be
in the area of $900(Approx 60,400).

According to the rumors, Samsung’s latest smartphone will
be water-resistant, gain a bigger battery — possibly up to 4,000mAh — and a
base model that will ship with 64GB of internal storage, which would be a nice
bump up from the Galaxy Note 5 (huh, Apple). Rumors also point to the Galaxy
Note 7 having a USB-C port and fast charging, and coming in black, silver, and
blue.
Nothing about those rumored
specs are too over the top, and should be expected in what is routinely
Samsung’s most powerful device. The biggest rumor so far has been the iris scanner, which would allow you to
unlock your Galaxy Note 7 and possibly authenticate apps by simply looking at
the camera. Samsung has filed for a patent for an iris recognition system, and
shots of the UI for the potential iris scanner popped up on Weibo a few days
ago, giving the rumor a bit more credibility. Companies are going lengths and
bounds for security enhancements, trying to revolutionize how
we work and shop.
The iris scanner will possibly be making a debut with the
Note 7 and if it launches it has to be the first of it’s kind and even thought
there is not much to break the internet over but it sure is a solid phone.
Rumors also suggest that the Note 7 will be running the
new version of Android 7, branded, Nougat.
There are also rumours that the device will come packing
some exciting new apps, including a new Dictionary and Speaking services that
will let users quickly translate words from one language to another, as well as
finally introduce a reliable text-to-speech functionality.
If the rumors and reports are true, Samsung’s work on the
Galaxy Note 7 should be enough to get fans excited about the new smartphone.
More rumors will likely pop up in the coming days, with just over two weeks
left before Samsung takes the wraps off its newest smartphone. We won’t have to
wait too long to find out what’s real and what isn’t.
