If leaks and rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Note 7 keep surfacing at the same torrential pace, Samsung may have no surprises left when it unveils the device next month. Folks at iGyaan.in, who have obtained an internal Samsung memo, claim that the Korean company has added some exciting new features to the Note 7’s S Pen stylus.
Galaxy Note 7 stylus may fix a flaw that haunted the Note 5
The publication adds that the stylus will get a new version of Bluetooth LE to enhance the proximity accuracy. It would also allow people to use the stylus longer. The Air Command interface is said to get two new shortcuts – Dictionary and Speaking. Dictionary will allow users to translate words from one language to another, while Speaking refers to a text-to-speech functionality.
According to iGyaan, Samsung has also redesigned the appearance of the S Pen. The latest renders of the Galaxy Note 7 suggest there should be a push to eject mechanism for the S Pen, similar to the one in Galaxy Note 5. However, Samsung might fix a known issue with the Note 5 that allowed the S Pen to be jammed backwards. What’s more, iGyaan also confirmed rumors about the Note 7 featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor.
Leak shows the cutout for Iris scanner
The publication added that the iris scanner in Note 7 would allow users to lock apps, documents, files and folders. The Galaxy Note 7 is rumored to sport a 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 6GB RAM, and a 4000mAh battery. The device is also said to include 64GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot, fast wireless charging, a 12-megapixel main camera, and waterproof design.
Last week, noted tipster Evan Blass leaked the unannounced images of the upcoming Galaxy Note 7, showing the phone’s entire front and back. The renders are in line with previous rumors, and show the exact cutout for the iris scanner that will allow users to unlock the device just by looking at it. Blass has a proven track record of leaking details of unannounced devices.
