The much anticipated next generation of Samsung’s Galaxy Note phablet was launched August 2, and while everything from the name to the features have been leaked online over the last few weeks, it’s still worth taking a look around the confirmed device.

As expected, the Note 7 (following on from the Note 5, and bringing the handset numerically in line with Samsung’s S series premium smartphones) runs hardware similar to the S7 – the much-praised 12MP camera, waterproofing and expanded storage are the headline improvements over the Note 5 which have already been a great success in the S7. The bevelled edge design echoes the company’s commitment to extra screen space without extra size.

As with all previous iterations of the Note, the significant different from the S phones is the slightly larger screen and the S Pen stylus, for writing directly onto the screen.

The Note 7 has the improved battery of the most recent S phones, and one or two new features, the most attention grabbing of which is iris-scanning technology. Initial tests seem to confirm that the infra-red technology works well, although some reviewers are questioning the need for an extra level of security already well served by fingerprint recognition.

Improved Gorilla Glass 5  will likely still need extra protection for all but the most trusting of users. Samsung has adopted the USB-C charger port for the first time in the Note 7, meaning users of the Oculus VR system will need to upgrade their headset along with their handset.
