The long-rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is now official ahead of a UK release on 2 September.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has the same metal and glass design as the Galaxy S7 and is 7.9mm thick. It comes with the same IP68 certification which means, in theory at least, that it'll survive the occasional bath-drop. Unlike the Galaxy S7, however, the handset's screen can be controlled in wet conditions with the bundled S-Pen stylus.
The Marshmallow-powered Galaxy Note 7 is the first Samsung smartphone to come with an eye scanner, similar to that seen on the Lumia 950. The system is compatible with the firm's Knox security suite, while a feature called Samsung Pass allows authentication for services such as Samsung Pay.
The fingerprint sensor is still present, so you won't have to glare at your smartphone every time you want to unlock it.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a 5.7in 2560x1440 518 AMOLED screen with the same Edge functionality as seen on the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The screen also offers support for Samsung's new S Pen stylus, which is twice as sensitive to pressure as its predecessor and comes with a slimmer tip for more precise note-taking. Perhaps the S-Pen's standout feature, however, is the ability to translate a word on the smartphone's screen simply by tapping it.
Samsung's 64-bit Exynos processor (or a Snapdragon 820 if you're in the US) is backed up by 4GB RAM and a beefy 3,500mAh battery with support for quick charging and wireless charging. The Galaxy Note 7 supports LTE Cat 9 speeds, and is the first Samsung smartphone with a USB Type-C connection in place of microUSB.
Things are similar to the Galaxy S7 when it comes to cameras. There's the same 12MP Dual Pixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation and support for 4K video, and the same 5MP camera on the front.
The Galaxy Note 7 will be made available in a 64GB model only, but microSD allows this to be expanded by an additional 256GB.
The Galaxy Note 7 will be available in the UK in 'blue coral' and 'black onyx' from 2 September, with pre-orders set to kick off on 2 August. A 'silver titanium' version will be available soon, according to Samsung.
Samsung also launched a new Gear VR headset alongside the Galaxy Note 7, which offers an improved 101-degree field of view and support for USB Type-C and microUSB connectors.
