There will soon be no shortage of videos on YouTube in which the Galaxy Note 7 is unboxed, reviewed and inevitably dropped till it’s dead but Samsung is taking the lead with those videos this time around, however, I expect it won’t be doing drop tests of the Galaxy Note 7 anytime soon. It has already posted an official unboxing video of the Galaxy Note 7 as well as a hands-on video which showcases the new tricks that the S Pen has picked up. The latest Galaxy Note 7 hands-on video from Samsung showcases its security features.
The Galaxy Note 7 does have a lot of those features. Knox 2.7 significantly improves the security of this handset and Samsung has built-in some software features as well for this purpose. One of the biggest features of this flagship smartphone is the iris scanner. This is Samsung’s first smartphone to feature this biometric technology and it enables users to quickly gain access to their device by just looking into the iris scanner. It’s much faster than the fingerprint sensor that’s also present on the Galaxy Note 7. The iris scanner does more than just unlock the phone, it can be used to lock content in the Secure Folder, sign into supported websites using Samsung’s browser and eventually it will also pave the way for safer mobile banking.
These great new features are certainly going to entice customers to pick up Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone. It’s going to be released on August 19 in select markets while increased pre-order demand has forced Samsung to delay the Galaxy Note 7 release in some markets.
