Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Phablet at the UNPACKED

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Phablet comes with an iris scanner and a dual-edge display exclusively will be unveiled on August 2 at Samsung UNPACKED event holding in New York, London, and Rio de Janeiro simultaneously, the event will be live streamed on the company website, and will begin at 8.30pm IST.
Numerous features and specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are already known. Here is a comprehensive list of all that is expected to come with the Galaxy Note 7 this year based on leaks that has surfaced online so far.
Galaxy Note 7 Colour variant
Note 7 not Note 6
The Samsung is calling the phablet the Galaxy Note 7, instead of the Galaxy Note 6. Reasons being to unify its product portfolio and avoid confusion among its consumers. Samsung released the S7 and S7 Edge this year in its flagship Galaxy 'S' series, and bringing its Note series to the same numeral made sense to it.

Iris scanner
Samsung is set to flag off the iris scanner feature in its mobile portfolio with the Galaxy Note 7. It is expected to unlock the device in less than a second (the user only has to look at it). Of course, this doesn't mean that Samsung has ditched the fingerprint scanner, and it will still be embed the sensor into the Home Button.

Dual-edge display
Dual Edge display
At the top of the list is the dual-edge display. An Edge variant did accompany the Galaxy Note 4, but this time around Samsung looks to exclusively launch the dual-edge diplay variant, and give the flat screen variant a complete miss. Samsung is said to have ditched the Edge variant with last year's Galaxy Note 5 due to some tech difficulties in getting the S Pen to work on the edges. That seems to be solved now, and the company is all equipped to flaunt the display as its big feature on the phablet.

Water resistant
The Galaxy Note 7 will be the first in its series to get water-resistant capabilities. A Zauba listing tipped that the phablet will be dust and water resistant to an extent.

USB Type-C port
The Galaxy Note 7 is also said to be the first phablet in the Samsung portfolio to switch to the Google-approved USB Type-C port. Leaks do point toward this change, but the final confirmation will only come on August 2.

Specifications
The phablet is said to sport a 6-inch QHD Super Amoled display, though other reports tip a 5.8-inch display instead. It is expected to come in two variants featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 and Exynos 8893 SoCs paired with 6GB of RAM (10nm chip). However, there have been contrasting reports of a Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4GB RAM as well. The Galaxy Note 7 will offer three inbuilt storage options - 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB (with the choice to expand as well). It is rumoured to sport a Dual 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and a 3600mAh battery. The smartphone will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based TouchWiz Grace UX.

Colour variants
The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is expected to come in three colour variants - Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral. This information comes from Evan Blass, a source with high accuracy rate. Interestingly, a Gold colour variant is not added in the mix, however is not ruled out completely till official launch.

Improved S Pen
Samsung has succeeded in keeping details about the S Pen a close-guarded secret for now. The Korean giant has confirmed that the new S Pen alongside the Galaxy Note 7 will come with 'added functionalities', but that's all there is know about the stylus for now. Samsung will presumably also not repeat the same mistake it did with the Galaxy Note 5, which was said to have a 'S Pen design flaw' that allowed the stylus to be inserted backwards into its slot, causing damage to the stylus detection mechanism and possibly getting stuck

On a final note Samsung is looking to make the Galaxy Note7 available to buy before the Rio Summer Olympics kick off on August 5, where it is the official wireless partner.
