For starters, I can now confirm that the Galaxy Note7 who inherited the Galaxy S7 edge lines was assembled around a metal frame, with glass back, measuring up to 153.5mm 73.9mm wide for a thickness of 7.9 mm and 168g on the scales. It should be noted in passing that the assembly is waterproof and dustproof (IP68 certification).
From a purely technical point of view, we note that the Note7 that will come with the Android 6.0 operating system Marshmallow embellished with TouchWiz overlay EtiquEdge is equipped with a Super AMOLED screen with curved side edges measuring 5.7 inches diagonally for a resolution of 2560x1440px, a processor with eight cores clocked at 2.3GHz with 4GB RAM support, a Dual Pixel camera of 12 megapixels (f / 1.7) with optical stabilizer that can capture video format UHD, a front camera of 5 megapixels, a reversible USB type-C, an authentication system by reading fingerprint scanner coupled with Iris, is powered by a 3500mAh battery and embeds 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded using a microSD card (256GB +).
The Note7 is obviously accompanied by his famous S Pen now sealed, with 4096 pressure levels and a time of less than 50ms latency.
For its part, the new GearVR that measure 207mm wide by 122mm high and 98.5mm deep and weighs 300g vacuum (116mm against 198mm x 90mm x for the current version) is now compatible with USB Type -c and sees his vision expanded to 110 ° (96 ° against the old version). Note that the new GearVR remains compatible with the Galaxy S7, S7 edge Galaxy, Galaxy S6, S6 Edge Galaxy and Galaxy S6 edge +.
Finally, note that the Galaxy Note7 will be marketed in France in early September (probably 02/09), around 850 € . The GearVR is meanwhile available next month.
