Forget the teaser clip, here are the full Galaxy Note 7 specs

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 17

Earlier on Thursday Samsung teased us with a preview video for the Galaxy Note 7 handset set to launch this week. Well, a report this evening has skipped the foreplay and revealed the full spec list for the large-screened device.

9to5Google claims to have obtained an exclusive rundown of those titillating vital stats.

According to the report, it’ll be the first high-profile phone to debut the new Gorilla Glass 5 display tech that’ll stand a better chance of surviving waist-to-shoulder height drops. That’ll shield a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display and an iris scanning camera right above.

Elsewhere, it’ll boast the USB Type-C charging tech, supporting 12/5-megapixel cameras and a 3500mAh battery.

According to the report, it’ll run Android 6.0.1, rather than the forthcoming Android 7.0 Nougat software which is yet to be officially released by Google.

Samsung also plans to launch a new iCloud-like backup service called Samsung Cloud, the source says, which will include 5GB of free storage.

This information ties in with most of what we’ve already heard about the phone, which will be Samsung’s best foot forward for the rest of 2016, leading up to the Galaxy S8 launch at MWC 2017.

Removeable battery and microSD slot or it's not a Note and I'll be sticking with my Note 4.

Removable battery is nice but given the prevalence, size and price of portable chargers these days I'm not quite as fussed about that. I have two portable chargers - one is ridiculously big and will see me through a week and the other is a day's worth of battery - together they give me more options than just a spare battery for a single device at a lower cost than an OEM spare. Totally agree regarding the microSD slot. If you're buying a phone like this you're a power user and if you get something with a huge, amazing screen like this and can't store a choice of high quality videos it's just a waste.

The iris scanner looks like a right farce though - you seen the list of things that make it not work? Humidity.... would be buggered today.

I hate USB - C almost as much as NANO sim cards!
Nice one, reviewer parrots everywhere. Behold your mighty works!
Even if Sammy offers swaps & compensation for my USB 3 cables I will still be rude to them.

I hope someone or some firm manufactures adapters.
Un-swappable batteries compound the crime.
Mobiles need, you know, mobility.

The audio was super loud on that vid, it did tell us though that waterproofing will be maintained.
Not sure yet if it can entice Note 4 & 5 users to upgrade.

Looking forward to seeing it undressed and fondled.

Batteries get worse over time. My Note 4 doesn't last nearly as long as it used to, and nor does my wife's.

If you change your phone every year then maybe not a worry, but if you like to hold onto them for a while then being able to replace the battery is important.

Admittedly it's fairly rare that I feel the need to replace the battery just because I've drained it, although my wife does as she uses her phone a lot more (she rarely bothers with her laptop).

I have a PowerGorilla, which is fine for traveling. On a daily basis I guess a little power pack like yours would make sense as it could charge other devices too.

Have to say, I used to use my Note 4 as a portable battery pack (e.g. for bluetooth headphones); easy enough with the right leads (the leads were tiny so I'd carry them with me in the bag)..

You're quite right regarding battery performance over time. I didn't consider that. I suppose that people buying a note are often paying more for their device and expect longer out of it than people who have more standard smartphones. I think a downside of using the little charger is that it's usually just a little top up which eats at the limited number of charge cycles the battery has before performance declines.

In retrospect I think you're right that this kind of model, especially given the predicted asking price, should have a replaceable battery. Perhaps not a 5 second job one but it should be a user serviceable item.

My biggest concern is, Flat or Edged screen or both. How I long for the Flat note with all these high tech advances being buddies around! How disappointedI I will be if only the folded ones a.k.a edged ones are released! Let Samsung remember their traditional old school flat Note buyers! Let them release both edged and flat with same specs and what a day it shall be!
