Samsung New Galaxy Note 7 Features Iris Recognition and AMOLED Screens

Samsung Electronics continues to drive innovation in the smartphone market with the Galaxy Note7 by building on the company’s category-defining leadership with advanced features. From refined craftsmanship, premium materials to a unique, symmetric edge design, the Galaxy Note7 continues to set a new standard for large-screen smartphones. The Galaxy Note7 is highly water resistant (IP68)1 and provides top-of-the-line security options, combining Samsung Knox with biometric authentication including iris scanning, as well as immersive entertainment features. Galaxy Note7 strikes a balance between work and play, enabling people to do more than what they thought possible on a smartphone.

 “The Galaxy Note7 combines productivity, entertainment with strong security features. Powering a robust ecosystem, it is the ideal device for those who want to achieve more in life,” said DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “Life now moves faster than ever, so we created the Galaxy Note7 to help users get things done more easily wherever, whenever.”

Advanced Security: Now in the Blink of an Eye

Samsung understands the importance of keeping content on users’ phones protected. Coupled with Samsung Knox, a defense-grade security platform, Galaxy Note7 provides heightened security and privacy options, with highly advanced biometric authentication, including fingerprint scanner and iris scanning technology, new to the Note series. The Galaxy Note7 offers more authentication options that can be used interchangeably depending on how people use their phones, wherever they are, or whatever they are doing.

The Galaxy Note7 instills a new level of user confidence with Secure Folder – a separate folder on the phone that has an extra layer of authentication to keep private and personal information safe. In the future, the iris recognition technology will be used to authenticate secure purchases that are made with Samsung Pay. The Galaxy Note7 will support Samsung Pass at a later date, bringing authentication such as iris scanning and fingerprint recognition to apps and services.

Best-in-Class Entertainment

The phone is one of the most important screens in a user’s life because it’s with them all the time. The Galaxy Note7 features a gorgeous, curved QHD Super AMOLED screen delivering a bold and immersive picture. It is ready to stream HDR video, enabling a cinema-like experience including super bright colors and incredibly deep black, which ensures users get the full experience that the filmmaker intended.

By pairing the Galaxy Note7 with the new Gear VR powered by Oculus, users can experience premium virtual reality, anywhere. The incredible Super AMOLED screen and powerful processor on the Galaxy Note7 delivers an ultra-immersive experience. With a new look and a vast, ever-growing library of apps, photos, games and more, Gear VR puts users in the center of the action. Whether it’s next level gaming or journeying to places you’ve never been before, there’s always something new to discover.

For people who live to create, tell stories and transport people to entirely new worlds, the Galaxy Note7 can be used with the new high-resolution (3840 x 1920) Gear 360 camera to capture, edit and share 360-degree images and videos on the go. These memories can then be shared with friends via platforms including YouTube 360, Facebook or Samsung VR, the company’s premium virtual reality service, and can be relived with the ultra-immersive Gear VR.

Galaxy Foundation with Refined Craftsmanship

The Galaxy Note7 is equipped with the advanced camera that was introduced on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The dual-pixel sensor technology, wide aperture and fast autofocus work together to create sharp and beautiful photos even in low-light environments.
