7 Points on The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Ahead of Its August 2 Release Date


#GalaxyNote7 #Smartphone7 Points on The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Ahead of Its August 2 Release Date : The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will very likely be the most powerful Android handset on the planet for a good few months after its release. Samsung is enjoying something of a resurgence in form of late with its Galaxy S7 handsets and, if history is anything to go by, the Galaxy Note 7 will be bigger, better, faster and more functional than its sibling. This has always been the case with the Note series, at least, in my opinion, and I do not see this changing in 2016.

The Galaxy Note 7 will also be the first Android phone with potentially 500GB of storage. According to reports the top model will ship with 256GB of internal storage, a huge figure that dwarves pretty much everything else currently on market.

In order to get to that all important 500GB mark is to take advantage of the Galaxy Note 7’s microSD port, into which you can slot either A) Samsung’s 256GB microSD card or B) SanDisk’s newly announced Extreme microSDXC UHS-1 card, which has just been called the fastest microSD card on the planet with its transfer speeds of 100MB/s and write speeds of 90MB/s.

Also worth noting is that the SanDisk microSD, despite having the same, ultra-fast transfer speeds, is $100 cheaper than Samsung’s 256GB option which is currently available for $250.

This is a huge difference in price for the same performance and storage, so which you go for is a basic no-brainer. Expect to see Samsung’s option reduced in the coming weeks.

Samsung will almost certainly do multiple versions of the Galaxy Note 7 too; one with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon CPU, the other with Exynos. Whether Samsung brings back removable batteries, however, remains to be seen. SD-support is almost guaranteed, though, as is higher internal storage options – maybe even 256GB.

I personally think the Galaxy Note 7 will more than give Apple’s iPhone 7 a run for its money.

And here are six points expanding on that theory.
