Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Samsung is almost ready to skip on the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 in favor of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 since it would align the phone with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge as the leading smartphones in its portfolio.

There have already been a number of rumors about the potential features being included in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which may be launched just a few weeks ahead of the Apple iPhone 7. Samsung are thought to be wary of the impact of the Apple iPhone 7 could make in the market.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to come with a 5.8-inch screen with QHD resolution. Big improvements are expected to be made in aspects like the stylus, a new snapdragon 820 processor, and, more importantly, 6 GB of RAM. Even though android is now supporting 64-bit operating systems, manufacturers have not yet gone to the level where it can be fully exploited. Phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 do have 4 GB of RAM, but it is the bare minimum required to run the 64 bit operating system. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to stretch the wings further in this regard.

Amongst the latest rumors is the use of a retina or iris scanner on the Galaxy Note 7. This will take the phone to a step above the current crop of smartphones, which feature fingerprint scanners. Of course, fingerprint recognition technology has improved tremendously since it first made its debut in the Apple iPhone a few years ago. However, an iris scanner will just be even better since there will be no contact involved in the unlocking process of a phone. However, it should be noted that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may not be the first device to offer the iris scanner.

Phones like the Lumia 950 have been offering this aspect for quite a while, but appearance on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may be a step into the limelight for this feature. Given the success of the past Galaxy Note series phones, one can be confident that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be a tremendous success. Hence, there is a possibility that the iris scanner feature could be a household name in the next few years following this introduction. The presence of trademarks, screenshots, and parts seem to confirm the availability of the iris scanner in the next Samsung Galaxy Note phone.
