Samsung will finally put the rumors to rest because the Galaxy Note 7 is about to be official on Tuesday. However, there are some tech reviewers who think that the upcoming device looks just like the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
The amount of details flowing on the Internet has been tremendous. This brought people to the hype and the information caused the public to expect highly of the flagship phablet.
But, along with several leaks, tech websites expressed disappointments over its specs and features. Case in point, Android Authority fearlessly wrote that nothing is surprising about the product.
The outlet stated that the Galaxy Note 7 does not have groundbreaking features. Based on the previous leaks, the IP68 addition is nothing more of typical.
Moreover, the full specifications and features are eerily similar to the S7 edge. Let us dig deeper into the details.
First, the Galaxy Note 7 specs might include a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, an octa-core chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB ROM with microSD expansion. It would also sport a 12 MP f/1.7 camera with OIS and 4K video, 5 MP front-facing camera, 3,500 mAh battery, USB Type-C and the iris scanner.
Furthermore, the phablet measures 153.5mm x 73.9mm x 7.9 mm and weighs 168 grams, which is according to the website, is almost the same as the S7 Edge. The online portal pointed out that it is only a larger model of the latter.
Also, the chip, which is purportedly powered by Exynos 8890, is the same as what the Edge S7 has. However, the only thing that Samsung might actually have done good is the release of the new Gear VR along with the product. It comes with a USB Type-C connection. Its dimensions are 207mm wide by 122mm high and 98.5mm deep.

Aside from the website, Tech Radar also has the same sentiments. But the site was also keen to notice that the S Pen has some major tweaks.
The S Pen’s pressure level will now be 4096, as compared from 2048 on the Note 5. The S Pen might also have a latency time of less than 50ms.
Given the information, tech savvy user might still want to try out the Galaxy Note 7 once it is out on Aug. 2. Besides, Samsung might be gearing up for a major improvement under wraps so stay tuned.
