Samsung Galaxy Note7 Announced

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

Making its début in New York just before noon, Samsung’s latest phablet is now official.

Like the Galaxy S7 the Note7 is dust and water-resistant, and its internal storage can be expanded with a microSD card. Unlike the S7 the new Note charges via USB-C, though there will apparently be a microUSB adapter in every box. And just for kicks, Samsung is throwing in an iris scanner.
