There weren't a lot of surprises, but Samsung finally unveiled the Galaxy Note 7. It features a lot of similarities to the Galaxy S7 line including the same water resistance rating. The Note 7 uses a reversible USB-C instead of the usual Micro-USB connector. Samsung will include a Micro-USB to USB-C adapter so older devices will still work with the Note 7. The curved screen uses Gorilla Glass 5, which is supposed to withstand a lot more damage.
