Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to come with iris scanner, dual cameras and Android M


There are always rumour circulating when a new device is poised to be launched but appears that those suggesting that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may sport dual cameras may have some more credence.

There is plenty of speculation that Apple is also considering dual cameras on their iPhone 7 Plus which is expected to be launched in September.

Of course dual cameras have been on the market a while now in the Huawei P9 and LG G5 so it is hardly surprising that Samsung and Apple are introducing similar features on their flagship devices.

The other major rumour surrounding the Note 7 is its name, with Samsung apparently skipping the Galaxy Note 6 altogether.

Other features of the Galaxy Note 7 are believed to be a 5.8 inch RGB AMOLED screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor and a whopping 6GB of RAM.

In line with most devices that have been launched in 2016, the Note 7 will include fingerprint scanners but in an attempt to increase protection that little bit further it is expected that the device will also include a retina scanner.

It is expected that the new device will be dust and water resistant and bring back the sorely missed microSD card slot that had been missing on the predecessor and the storage on the phablet is likely to remain the same as the previous model.

As the Galaxy Note 7 is expected to be launched in August it seems likely that it will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow rather than Android N (or whatever it will be called in the future).

No more specs have been released at this stage nor has a confirmed launch date, although it is expected to be imminent, given that Samsung Thailand has recently reduced the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in stores throughout Thailand.
