Galaxy Note7 S Pen: Quickly and Easily Bring Ideas to Life
The enhanced Galaxy Note7 S Pen is more than just a writing tool – it is the gateway to getting more done efficiently and accurately. Users can bring ideas to life the moment inspiration strikes, without unlocking the screen, by using Screen off Memo and simply pinning the memo to the Always On Display. The S Pen also gives users the ability to easily create and share GIF animations with Smart Select. In addition, the new Air Command functions, including Magnify and Translate, enable users to zoom in on the screen or convert languages with a simple hover of the S Pen. It is even easier to access the best of the S Pen’s creative abilities with Samsung Notes, the unified app allowing users to jot down handwritten notes, draw, or edit memos from one location.
The new S Pen writes with ease and precision. The new, improved pressure sensitivity and smaller 0.7mm tip provides a ballpoint pen-like experience.
Advanced Security: Now in the Blink of an Eye
Samsung understands the importance of keeping content on users’ phones protected. Coupled with Samsung Knox, a defense-grade security platform, Galaxy Note7 provides heightened security and privacy options, with highly advanced biometric authentication, including fingerprint scanner and iris scanning technology, new to the Note series. The Galaxy Note7 offers more authentication options that can be used interchangeably depending on how people use their phones, wherever they are, or whatever they are doing.
The Galaxy Note7 instills a new level of user confidence with Secure Folder – a separate folder on the phone that has an extra layer of authentication to keep private and personal information safe. In the future, the iris recognition technology will be used to authenticate secure purchases that are made with Samsung Pay. The Galaxy Note7 will support Samsung Pass at a later date, bringing authentication such as iris scanning and fingerprint recognition to apps and services.
The phone is one of the most important screens in a user’s life because it’s with them all the time. The Galaxy Note7 features a gorgeous, curved QHD Super AMOLED screen delivering a bold and immersive picture. It is ready to stream HDR video, enabling a cinema-like experience including super bright colors and incredibly deep black, which ensures users get the full experience that the filmmaker intended.
By pairing the Galaxy Note7 with the new Gear VR powered by Oculus, users can experience premium virtual reality, anywhere. The incredible Super AMOLED screen and powerful processor on the Galaxy Note7 delivers an ultra-immersive experience. With a new look and a vast, ever-growing library of apps, photos, games and more, Gear VR puts users in the center of the action. Whether it’s next level gaming or journeying to places you’ve never been before, there’s always something new to discover.
For people who live to create, tell stories and transport people to entirely new worlds, the Galaxy Note7 can be used with the new high-resolution (3840 x 1920) Gear 360 camera to capture, edit and share 360-degree images and videos on the go. These memories can then be shared with friends via platforms including YouTube 360, Facebook or Samsung VR, the company’s premium virtual reality service, and can be relived with the ultra-immersive Gear VR.
Galaxy Foundation with Refined Craftsmanship
With Galaxy Note7, Samsung continues to defy boundaries of engineering
to deliver a more ergonomic and intuitive user experience through
innovative design. Every edge, surface and detail of the design has been
refined to provide a comfortable grip, easier one-handed operation, and
durability with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5. Although the Galaxy Note7
features a large screen, the unique front-to-back symmetrical dual-edge
curve remains balanced and light with the sleek feel users have come to
love from the Galaxy series. The powerful Edge Panel provides one-tap
access to applications, news and functions.
