Since 10am last night (Indochina time), Samsung has just announced the new flagship phablet, the next Galaxy Note - Galaxy Note 7. It comes with new technology and impressive innovation which included IP68 rating (water resistant) and the Iris Scanner - unlock the phone by scanning your eyes. 

You might notice that Samsung is ignoring the Galaxy Note 6 and goes straight to name it as Note 7 (as rumored before the launch).

This maybe because Samsung doesn't want its users to feel Note 6 is elder than the S7/S7 edge.
