Samsung has announced its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7 in India. The smartphone was launched globally earlier in the month and it shows the importance of the Indian market, that Samsung has followed up with the launch in India not even 10 days in to the global launch. The Note 7 will be available for a price of Rs 59,990. The phone will be on sale from next month, September 2nd to be precise. However, starting from August 22nd, you will be able to pre-order the phone so that you are one of the first to get it when t eventually makes way to the market.
Samsung introduced a new Gear VR with the Note 7 and the same will be available at a special price of Rs 1,990. You will not be able to use the Gear VR that shipped with the S7 on the Note 7 since the Note 7 comes with a USB-Type C port one of the new add-ons to the Note series alongside the Iris scanner.
The overall design of the Note 7 is largely similar to what we saw on the Note 5, therefore it is more of an evolutionary product. The phone features a 5.7inch Super AMOLED panel with 2K resolution. It is driven by Exynos 8890 processor, which is an octa-core processor powered at 2.3GHz. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage on the device. The camera configuration on the back and front are 12 MP and 5MP respectively. These are the same camera modules that we saw on the Galaxy S7. There is the customary S-Pen bundled which is better than ever especially on a display that is extremely pressure sensitive. The phone uses a hybrid Dual SIM slot, so you can either use two SIM cards or one SIM card and one MicroSD card here. The phone ships with Android Marshmallow out of the box with TouchWiz UI on top.
The front of the phone has the home button flanked by capacitive buttons. The home button also has the fingerprint scanner in-built. The phone has a waterproof body so you should be good in occasional rainfalls. Samsung has also teamed up with Reliance Jio,, who are offering their Jio 4G Preview plan complimentary with the Galaxy Note 7.
