It's All in the Processors
The rumors have it that the new Note 7 will be powered by two quads, or an octa-core, i.e. two Qualcomm chips processing 2.6 GHz and 1.6 GHZ respectively. These will be either Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 series processors. Needless to say, the 6 GB of RAM will be higher than any other Samsung, and virtually every other mobile on the market, as will its 64, 128, and 256 GB of storage capacity. App lovers will no doubt go wild with the possibilities.
The Galaxy Note7 is also slated to be powered by Android OS, v7.0 software, with TouchWiz UI from Grace also available. This will make the Galaxy Note7 phablet a viable alternative to most tablets out there, as its compact portability will begin to make hoisting around an iPad look almost foolish--barring large-format graphics wizzes.
The new Samsung Galaxy Note7 will also come with an S-Pen, for signature verification or other identification on financial transaction apps, and the like. It will be sealed off in a water-resistant casing and sprayed with a protective nano-coating. This is a great feature for merchants who can use it to verify customers' identities and take payment through third-party apps at the same time. Other accessories will no doubt have Galaxy users as stoked as can be.
Upon launch, off-contract prices will run you approximately $800 in the States, and £639 in the U.K., where the Note7 has been previously unavailable. Its price in Euros will be €849 upon launch. This amounts to the biggest price tag for a mobile phone to date. Will it all be worth it? Many expert insiders say it should.
The Galaxy Note7 from Samsung promises to be something special among other phones and tablets. Its range of outstanding features will present buyers with a long and tantalizing list of juicy enticements. No doubt this phablet should be a monster in the mobile market and give users the best bang for their buck yet.
