Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to Feature Iris Scanner and USB Type-C Port

Galaxy Note 7

Leaked front panels of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 seem to hint at the presence of an iris scanner.

The exact application of this new feature remains to be seen, but it promises to take the Samsung Galaxy Note series to the next level. Almost every specification of the anticipated product has already been leaked. In the past, most of the leaks have turned out to be true and there is a good chance that it may happen with the upcoming phone as well.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to come with a 5.8 inch display with curved edges. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S7, which is also sold in the edge version, the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to have only one variant. As a result, Samsung seem to have been keen on packing the phone with almost every conceivable feature available in the industry now. Even though the resolution of the display will not be increased from the QHD figures, the addition of the edge display brings a whole lot of functionality to the phone especially with the S pen on board.

The latest rumors suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will not omit one of the must have features in 2016 – USB Type-C port. Doing away with the older generation USB port will be a major positive in the Note 7’s favor. Even though the phone does come with wireless charging support even in the current generation, this feature could be improved on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Furthermore, the availability of dash charging on the OnePlus 3 alters the scenario at the top end segment considerably. Samsung will have to come out with an even faster charging technology – especially compared with the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy Note 5 – in order to make the best phablet.

It is heavily rumored that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will not just come with a huge array of features that will suck its battery, but it is expected to come with a 4000 mAh battery by taking advantage of the larger footprint. The huge battery is expected to make the device easily last for more than a day even under heavy usage. On the imaging front, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is expected to carry identical specifications to the Samsung Galaxy S7 by sporting a 12-megapixel rear camera and eight-megapixel front camera.
