Earlier we saw a short video of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, just a few minutes. The device in question — which appears to be an early prototype is devoid of a curved display.
The 4:30 mark is very interesting. It appears to be a testing portion for the iris scanner. Unlocking the device seems to bring up a user interface that shows a cartoon character who is directing the user to unlock the phone using their eye. The video shows the character for a split second as the phone seemingly unlocks in an instant. If that’s the sort of speed we’re to expect from the device’s supposed iris scanner then color us impressed. Alongside that, we also get a leak of the device being compared to 4 different Galaxy S7 Edge variants from different countries.
Here's the full video:
The Samsung Galaxy Note7 will be unpacked on August 2. The first official ad is already out, but (naturally) it doesn't show the star, it just sets the mood.
