V3 was at Samsung's Unpacked event in London to catch a glimpse of the new Galaxy Note 7.
Samsung has decided to bring the supersized handset back to the UK this time. That's cause for celebration enough, but the Galaxy Note 7 is also the first in the family to ditch the traditional flat design.
The new Note has a seductive blend of metal and glass and inherits the S7 Edge's dual curves and beautiful build. Without a point of reference, you might even mistake it for its smaller sibling. We're also pleased to see the new S-Pen make its debut.
Much like the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge before it, the Note 7 feels like a premium device through and through.
The front and back are coated in glass, while the sides are rounded metal. The most notable difference is that the Galaxy Note 7 is the first Samsung smartphone to include a USB Type-C port.
But before you worry about the boxes of microUSB cables you've hoarded, Samsung has included a handy converter in the box, which is great news if you don't have the new one to hand.
The Galaxy Note 7 comes in Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, Gold Platinum (in some countries) and an all-new Coral Blue. The Blue looks absolutely stunning, with a slither of Gold trim hugging the phone's sides. It might just be the best-looking Galaxy yet.
Size-wise the Note 7 is worlds apart when put next to the S7. The Note is a svelte 7.9mm thick, much like the Galaxy S7, but it's longer at 154mm and wider at 7.4mm. It weighs 169g.
