Samsung Galaxy Note 7: The Smartest Smartphone Unveiled

The South Korea Technological Giant, Samsung Electronics, has released what it consider, its most Intelligent Smart Phone ever – the New Galaxy Note 7.

For gadgets lover like me, this is one of the most exciting news that can make you shoot off in all directions, looking classy this summer.

Yeah – you know that casual, “drop the phone on the table” during a meeting with other business partners, or “lets take a selfie” at a party, with your cool friends, feel? No one can burn you for it. You are who you are. Why? Because this phone, with its expected heavy price tag, is Impressively BOLD!




The Galaxy Note 7 features the same high end, first class material and a distinctive symmetrical edge design, with a finish, better than any of Samsung previous phones. It has a 12 megapixel and a 5 megapixel front camera. And for the very first time in any smartphone, the new HDR recording.

Think of it, High Dynamic Range imaging is the contemporary standard for TV picture quality. Very expensive and limited. Samsung had to partner with Amazon Prime streaming service, for content and quality HDR video streams.

The phone will also be available in more colors than before – Blue, Black, Yellow, Silver and Gold.

Enter the Game Changer: Iris Scanner

According to the Guardian, the Note 7 “biggest selling feature is a new biometric option in the form of an infrared iris scanner that takes just seconds to set up and unlock the phone with a glance of either eye.”

The scanner detect patterns in your iris. Just pointing it at your eyes will unlock the phone, and it does so really fast. But you must first be registered to the device.

This is an extra layer of security, even though the fingerprint scanner under the home button, still remains.

The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to hit the Nigeria market by September 2016
