At a press event in New York, Samsung introduced its 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 7 -- the latest iteration of its big-screen, stylus-packing phone. Featuring an iris scanner, a water resistant design and a 12-megapixel camera, the Note 7 is a workhorse of a handset.
With its Snapdragon 820 processor and beefy 3,500mAh battery, it also continues the Note's ongoing appeal to mobile power users. In addition, its signature stylus comes with a bundle of new tricks. It can magnify text, make GIFs and pin a memo to the lock screen.
If you can't wait to nab one for yourself, be aware that the Note 7 is quite costly, and is one of the more expensive Samsung phones next to the Edge series. In the US, pre-orders begin August 3 and a few carriers have already announced pricing as well as bundled promotions including the new Samsung Gear VR headset or a 256GB memory card.
In the UK, online retailer Mobilefun is quoting a price of £749, but Samsung and other networks have yet to release their own pricing. Vodafone, O2, GiffGaff, Three and EE, however, all confirmed that they will carry the Note 7.
Australia pricing and availability are still unknown, but if we go by last year's Note 5, we can expect the handset to cost around AU$1,199.
