Samsung Unpacked starts with Galaxy Note 7 announcement

Following an epileptic opening ceremony and a melodious collage of national anthems to follow along with the Olympic spirit, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Note 7.

Company president Dongjin Koh calls it the “world’s most intelligent smartphone” and an entry into the fastest growing category of such phones: the phablet.

Big points about the Note 7 were presented before the phone was even announced like the iris scanner, — with applications for keeping parents’ children safe (and vice versa) along with mobile banking — the device’s water-resistance, its wireless charging capabilities and the water- and dust-resistant Wacom-powered S Pen.

The device is being introduced as part of an ecosystem of Galaxy with the Gear Fit 2, a New Gear VR and more.
