The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Officially Hit the Shelves

With Apple announcing its plans to reveal the iPhone 7 in September, it seems only fitting that Samsung released the latest iteration of its heavy-hitting iPhone competitor, the Galaxy Note 7, a few weeks before.

The second you look at the Note 7—Samsung decided to skip a “6” entirely—it becomes immediately apparent that it was built from the ground up to be the non-iPhone answer to the iPhone. The physical design is remarkably similar to that of the iPhone, but the guts of this phone are damn near indistinguishable from the also-lauded Samsung S7 and S7 Edge.

Dual-curved Gorilla Glass 5 screens, 64GB of internal storage, microSD compatibility, a 12-megapixel f/1.7 camera, 4GB of RAM, its patented quick charging system and a 5.7-inch display make the Note 7 a major contender this year, and I’m definitely interested to see how the team at Apple plans on answering this.
