Samsung today launched the Galaxy Note 7, a much-anticipated successor to the Galaxy Note 5 which the company didn't release in the UK, much to the dismay of Galaxy Note fans.

The new Galaxy Note 7 comes with great new features like an Iris scanner and IP68 dust and waterproof rating.

Featuring a 5.7-inch curved Super AMOLED display, Galaxy Note 7 also comes with impressive internal specifications as well so it can be- like Samsung says: a multi-functional device for all kinds of users. Be it  consuming and creating media, editing and modifying work files or even experiencing the world of VR, the Galaxy Note 7 offers the processing power to multi-task at ease.

In Europe, Galaxy Note 7 will be available with an Exynos 8890 processor, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, 4GB of RAM, a powerful 3,500 mAh battery and 64GB of storage. If you need to save all your music and videos in the phone, the Note 7 further takes a MicroSD card as well. Like Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones, Galaxy Note 7 also comes with 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras.

In terms of security, Galaxy Note 7 offers a two-way authentication mechanism to keep your data secure. Apart from a fingerprint scanner, it is the first Note device to launch with an Iris scanner which is considered more secure than the former. Using the Iris scanner, not only will you be able to unlock the phone but will also be able to authorise NFC payments.

The S Pen in Galaxy Note 7 is uniquely designed to let you work it for many hours at a go and is twice as intuitive as the S Pen which shipped with the Galaxy Note 5. Featuring IP68 dust and waterproof rating, the S Pen comes with 4096 pressure points and will let you draw pictures, write notes and perform a range of other functions with ease.

Those who will pre-order the Galaxy Note 7 will get a Gear VR for free for a limited period. The latest Gear VR is 19 per cent lighter than its predecessor and will feel more comfortable around your skull thanks to its new foam cushioning. Despite its compactness, it sports a larger touch pad than its predecessor and the touch pad offers easier and more accurate control. Given that the Note 7 features a large curved display- the VR experience on its display should be worth experiencing.

Galaxy Note 7 is available to pre-order from now onwards and is available in Blue Coral and Black Onyx colour options. From 16th onwards, it will also be available in Silver Titanium and will ship with a free Gear VR headset for all pre-orders before 30th August.
