After enduring a tough start to life, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is finally back on T-Mobile shelves, both in-store and online.
In addition to offering new Galaxy Note 7 units that have now been corrected of the defect that was causing them to blow up, the U.S. carrier is also ready to replace any recalled unit as well as replace the full amount for anyone who doesn’t want anything to do with the phone anymore.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes back at a time when Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL are here. However, given the strong return to the scenes the phone had in its home country of South Korea, we won’t be surprised to see the same happening in the U.S. There is no doubt that the handset is attractive to the eye. It gets even better when it comes to the performance and features and if indeed the battery issue has been corrected, the Galaxy Note 7 should still be a huge block in the path of the aforementioned Apple and Google phones.
Samsung has already taken care of the Galaxy Note 7 issue with respect to the recalled U.S. units. Now that it has begun shipping to local carriers and retailers, many should now have a chance to fully interact with the gadget. Beginning this October 5, those on T-Mobile can share this joy.
To give you a highlight of what Samsung Galaxy Note 7 brings to the table, here’s a brief look at the phone’s most basic specs and features.
The Note 7 has a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a QHD resolution of 1440p and Always On Display. The screen is curved like what you see with the Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the smaller Galaxy S6 Edge. It also comes with the Edge software alongside the S Pen, which should give you a unique experience.
Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 7 packs all the 2016 flagship hardware you can think of – a Snapdragon 820 SoC, Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RAM as well as expandable storage of 64GB. There is Android Marshmallow out of the box, but an update to Android Nougat should be availed probably before the end of this year.
In addition to coming with a world-class camera, the Galaxy Note 7 also happens to be the first Samsung phone to come with an iris scanner. This offers the same functionality as the fingerprint scanner, but it is more secure. Still, the phone has a fingerprint scanner for those who don’t fancy the new authentication technology.
