The time has finally arrived, Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7 is now available to purchase. The commercial launch has gone live today in the US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rice, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, the UAS, and Korea.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a true flagship by any measure. The phone features the company’s latest 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440) resolution Super AMOLED display, and is powered either by Qualcomm’s top of the line Snapdragon 820 or Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 processor, depending on your region. The phone also comes with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and an excellent 12MP rear, 5MP front camera combination.
Samsung has also thrown in virtually every extra feature that you could want. Fast charging, dual-mode wireless charging, a USB Type-C connector, fingerprint scanner, iris scanner, Samsung Pay, and an even more accurate S Pen, it’s all in there.
