For a quick rundown of the specs and features, the Galaxy Note 7 sports a 5.7-inch Dual-edge Super AMOLED display with a Quad HD resolution, either a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8 processor (depending on the region), 4GB of RAM, and the same wonderful cameras that first appeared on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. It also comes with Samsung’s Edge UX features, an IP68 water resistance rating, a big 3,500mAh battery, an iris scanner, and comes in four color options – Silver, Gold Platinum, Blue Coral and Black Onyx.
All in all this seems to be a solid upgrade from last year’s Note 5, and especially from 2014’s Galaxy Note 4.
