The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was recently launched in an event held in New York on the 2nd of August. The phablet from Samsung packs some interesting hardware and software for a premium price of $850. There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is one of the most awaited phones of 2016. The phone is made mainly out of glass and metal and also incorporates a dual edge display, first for the note series. Everything about the Note 7 screams quality. It builds on everything that was great about the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and further refines it. It also has some beastly specifications worth checking out. They are:
– 5.7 inch Super Amoled Display
– Quad HD Display (518 PPI)
– Gorilla Glass 5
– Mobile HDR
– Snapdragon 820 processor/ Exynos 8890
– 4GB RAM/64 GB internal storage
– 5 MP Front camera/ 12 MP f/1.7 primary camera with dual pixel auto focus
– 3500 mah battery
– Iris Scanner/ Finger print Scanner
– Improved S pen
– IP68 dust and water resistance
– Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow)
– Expandable storage up to 256 GB
Looking at the raw specs we can know that the Note 7 is a beast of a phone. However, many people around the globe have mixed feelings about the Note 7. One major gripe that most people have is that the Note 7 doesn’t bring much changes over the S7 edge. Of course it has the Iris scanner, Improved S Pen and all that, but people are not ready to drop extra cash just for an iterative change. It also packs only 4 GB of RAM considering the fact that the Note series is supposed to be a power house in Samsung’s arsenal with the latest hardware and mind blowing specifications. Indubitably, 4 GB of RAM is more than enough on a device in this day and age, but with devices like the One Plus 3 in the market which already has 6 GB of RAM, Note fans can’t help but feel left out. Nevertheless, the Note 7 is an amazing smartphone and will most likely be my next daily driver. The Note 7 will be available worldwide from August 19 with Pre-booking already commencing from the 3rd of August.
“The Galaxy Note 7 is both a beauty and a beast”
The Note fans here in Nepal ,however, will have to wait about a month or so to get their hands on this beast. Samsung Mobile Nepal will undoubtedly will try their best to bring the phone here in Nepal as soon as possible.
And according to the price of previous Note devices, the Galaxy Note 7 will probably be priced around Rs 89,000 here. I, however, am a little skeptical that the Note 7 will be priced higher than the supposed price of Rs 89,000 given the fact that the price of Note 7 is higher than previous Note devices in the international market. Hopefully, it won’t be priced higher than that of its previous iterations.
Pre-Booker’s of the Note 7 may also be in for a treat as they might very well receive a Gear Fit 2 or a 256 GB Samsung memory card. Along with the Note 7, Samsung Mobile Nepal will most probably launch the new Gear VR and the Icon X earbuds. And if you are wondering, it is unlikely that they will give out the new Gear VR with the Note 7 for free, like they did with the Note 5. But you never know what surprises Samsung Mobile Nepal may bring to the table.
That aside we also hope that Samsung Mobile Nepal brings all the color options like the Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, Gold Platinum and the Blue Coral.
And if I had to pick one I would probably go with the new Blue coral option. Hopefully, Samsung brings all the color options including my favorite the Blue Coral for the Note 7 here in Nepal.And if you haven’t figured it out by now, we here are TechnoNepal are very excited about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and can’t wait to get our hands on it. We will undoubtedly bring you guys a full written review and also a video review once it launches here in Nepal. So for those, keep tabs on our website regularly and also subscribe to GIS Nepal.
