BEEFIER SPECS JOIN BUILT-IN GIF-MAKING CAPABILITIES.
The Galaxy Note 7 will bring a whole host of updated tech specifications to the 5.7-inch-screened handset (which now features a display that curves over both left and right edges). The Android 6.0.1 device will ship with a 3,500 mAh battery, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage — all standard.
Samsung’s fingerprint sensor makes a return, but is now joined by an iris scanner for additional security, according to Samsung. Using the camera and infrared, the Galaxy Note 7 is able to recognize users’ eyes to determine who is in fact using the phone. Along with gaining entry into the phone, the iris scanner can be used to lock down specific folders within the phone. Large changes to the Note line like this are joined by smaller updates like the switch from a micro-USB charging port to the reversible USB-C.
