Samsung has officially unveiled the new Galaxy Note 7 featuring a dual-edge curve display, water resistant body, S Pen, iris scanner, and more.

The Galaxy Note7 strikes a balance between work and play, enabling people to achieve more than what they thought possible on a smartphone.

“The Galaxy Note7 combines productivity and entertainment, with strong security features. Powering a robust ecosystem, it is the ideal device for those who want to achieve more in life,” said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “Life moves faster than ever now so we created the Galaxy Note7 to help users get things done more easily wherever, whenever.”

Here's a look at the features touted by Samsung...

Galaxy Note7 S Pen: Quickly and Easily Bring Ideas to Life
The enhanced Galaxy Note7 S Pen is more than just a writing tool – it is the gateway to getting more done efficiently and accurately. Users can bring ideas to life the moment inspiration strikes without unlocking the screen by using Screen off memo and simply pinning the memo to the Always On Display. The S Pen also gives users the ability to easily create and share GIF animations with Smart Select. In addition, the new Air Command functions, including Magnify and Translate, enable users to zoom in on the screen or convert languages with a simple hover of the S Pen. It is even easier to access the best of the S Pen’s creative abilities with Samsung Notes, a new unified app allowing users to jot down handwritten notes, draw, or edit memos from one location.

The new S Pen writes with ease and precision. The smaller 0.7mm tip and improved pressure sensitivity provides a real pen-like experience. With the peace of mind that IP68 water resistant provides, the Galaxy Note7 S Pen lets users jot down their thoughts without interruption, even when the screen gets wet.

Advanced Security: Now in the Blink of an Eye
Samsung understands the importance of keeping content on users’ phone protected. Coupled with Samsung Knox, an industry-leading security platform, the Galaxy Note7 provides heightened security and privacy, with highly advanced biometric authentication, including fingerprint scanner and iris scanning technology. The Galaxy Note7 offers more authentication options that can be used interchangeably depending on how people use their phones, wherever they are, or whatever they are doing.

The Galaxy Note7 instills a new level of user confidence with Secure Folder, a separated folder that adds an extra layer of authentication to keep private and personal information safe. The iris recognition technology will also be used to authenticate secure purchases that are made on Samsung Pay**. The Galaxy Note7 will also support Samsung Pass, bringing authentication such as iris scanning and fingerprint recognition to more apps and services.

Best-in-Class Entertainment
The phone is one of the most important screens in a user’s life because it’s with them all of the time. 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 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. The Galaxy Note7 also features Game Pack, available through Google Play, including top game titles, an easier redemption process and new user benefits.

By pairing the Galaxy Note7 with the new Gear VR powered by Oculus, users can experience premium virtual reality almost anywhere. Galaxy Note7’s incredible Super AMOLED screen and powerful processor delivers an ultra-immersive experience. The vast and ever growing library of apps, photos, games and more puts, users in the center of the action. Whether it’s next level gaming or journeying to places users have never been before, there’s always something new to discover.

For people who live to create, tell stories and transport people to entirely new worlds, the Galaxy Note7 can be used with the new high-resolution (3840x1920) Gear 360 camera, to capture, edit and share 360-degree images videos on the go. These memories can then be shared with friends via platforms including YouTube 360 and Facebook, and can be relived with the ultra-immersive Gear VR.

Galaxy Foundation with Refined Craftsmanship
With Galaxy Note7, Samsung continues to defy boundaries of engineering to perfect the user experience through innovative design. Every edge, surface and detail of the device’s design has been refined to provide a comfortable grip, easier one-handed operation, and durability with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Although the Galaxy Note7 features a large-screen, the unique front-to-back symmetrical dual-edge curve remains balanced and light with the sleek feel users have come to love from the Galaxy series. The curved screen lets the Galaxy Note7 add the powerful Edge Panel for one-tap user access to applications, news and functions.

The Galaxy Note7 is equipped with the advanced camera that was introduced on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge The dual-pixel sensor technology, wide aperture and fast auto focus, work together to create sharp and beautiful photos even in low-light environments.

In addition to 64GB of internal memory, the Galaxy Note7 offers expandable storage and microSD support up to 256GB. The Galaxy Note7 is equipped with a 3,500mAh battery, easy Power Management UX through Smart Manager, and charges quickly using the new USB-C port. Recharge the Galaxy Note7 wherever wireless charging is available.

A new line of accessories will be available to complement the Galaxy Note7, including the new S View Standing Cover, a light and portable cover that can be used to prop the device at a 60-degree angle for easy viewing of content, as well as an IP68 water resistant Backpack for on-the-go charging.

Creating a Phone+ Ecosystem of Connected Experiences
The Galaxy Note7 is more than just a smartphone; it’s a connection point to Samsung’s ecosystem of devices, software and services. Users can monitor their fitness activities on the Gear Fit2 or Gear IconX and track their data through S Health 5.0.** In addition to accurate and robust fitness tracking and measurement, the new S Health enables users to stay connected to family and friends by sharing fitness updates or competing in friendly challenges with one another.

With the Galaxy Note7, consumers can use the iris scanner to access value-added Samsung services like Samsung Pay** for quick and easy mobile payments.

The Smart Switch feature has been enhanced further with Samsung Cloud, which supports a seamless device experience by providing continuous backup and easy transfer of content including data, apps, settings and layouts between devices. Galaxy Note7 users will be able to use up to 15GB of free space to store and restore information on Samsung Cloud.**

The Galaxy Note7 will be available starting on August 19, and will be offered in Blue Coral, Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and Black Onyx.

goodbye apple...!
gamerscul9870 - August 3, 2016 at 3:46pm
Nice knowing you...!
N3H - August 3, 2016 at 3:57pm
I love Apple you know, I have a Macbook Pro, an iphone 5 and 4s, but I am tired of poor battery, running on all plugs for charge, I am collecting the equivalent of all my apps that I used at work (gps, GIS,...) with ios, gotta move to I am a designer in my lost time, ipad pro is nice but can't go in my pocket, S-Pen is just what i need to keep in my pocket to keep sketching my ideas on the move!!!!!!
gamerscul9870 - August 3, 2016 at 4:03pm
My battery lasts up to nearly 2 days on a single charge. The way your battery drains too easily is games, connection other than wifi, brightness, etc. but there's a reason portable chargers exist, plus I do airdrop iPad Pro drawings to my phone.
N3H - August 3, 2016 at 4:10pm
I'll move to Note, but will keep my iphone4s beside me to feel those good old days :) while sketching on the move...! and maybe later on I'll definitely remove my second sim and insert it for dual sim in this Note...who knows, you live and you learn !

samsung phones keep getting better, apple should really do something and be competitive !
gamerscul9870 - August 3, 2016 at 12:19pm
They're onky getting better because they always wait for something form the iPhone to inspire them. Apple always does something that is competitive and something like no ne else has done.

Like 3D touch that no one uses? 99% of people forget that it's even there lol. Things that I love about my apple products are: iCloud, FaceTime and iMessage. That's their real innovative things. Otherwise Samsung is 70 years forward.

well i think Samsung have raised the par by introducing iris scanner,waterproofing and better displays i guess competition in Android mareket forces manufacturers all go to the favour of the consumer with cutting edge technology and better prices that thing is not happening with apple.
gamerscul9870 - August 3, 2016 at 3:45pm
Tell that to the top rated smart watch along with iPad Pro features. The 6s did do something interesting in terms of 3D touch expanding on game features.

Note 6 a big failure no body at Shamsung bothered to release it, oh poor Samsung. Well Note 7 is just gimmicky, has same specs as S7/Edge.... Watch for your daddy iPhone 7 in September
SimonSays - August 2, 2016 at 11:14pm
As with all of their Samsung android phones, random freezes and restarts come standard.
RWR - August 3, 2016 at 1:13am
It's like buying a Lamborghini thinking it's going to be reliable
RWR - August 2, 2016 at 6:57pm
I'll wait for the Note 6
PerpetuallyBlue - August 2, 2016 at 4:13pm
Many great features but undo they the point of the screen all the way to the edge. It looks and feels so fragile. I hope apple doesn't go that route. Do love the headphones and other good features. Too bad it's still not iOS.
gamerscul9870 - August 2, 2016 at 4:37pm
They didn't and won't do it when they made the screens bigger on the 6 since the 5 so there's no doubt.
AverageReviewer - August 2, 2016 at 4:08pm
Low key want that S Pen but high key want that Dual Edge and Iris Scanner finally starting to feel like 2016
Ace* - August 2, 2016 at 4:07pm
Goodbye bezels.
Pyrocynical - August 2, 2016 at 3:52pm
I simply love this. No doubt m8.
