Samsung unveiled on August 2 its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone with a curved screen and iris scanner, seeking to build on the sales momentum that has helped it roar back to surging profit growth.
After the successful release in other parts of the world, Samsung is finally releasing the smartphone in Pakistan, and will begin pre-booking of its powerful Galaxy NOTE 7 in the country.
According to a statement, the pre-booking facility is available on selected Samsung Experience Stores (SES) outlets, as well as online at ‘Daraz.pk’.
Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 7 with iris scanner
Under the special promotional offer starting from August 18, customers will get a free ‘Samsung Gear VR’ on purchase of Note 7, whose retail price has been fixed at Rs93,500.
To pre-book the device, customers can either visit any of the selected SES stores in the country, or visit Daraz.pk, and fill a form along with a deposit of Rs5,000.
Samsung Note 7 employs a similar design to the Galaxy S series, but offers a larger screen and functions involving a pen accessory. Grip on the device is also improved to make it easier to be used with one hand.
Samsung expects Galaxy Note 7 sales to beat predecessor’s
The iris scanner allows users to unlock the device through the recognition of their eyes – the first such application for a Samsung smartphone.
With smaller 0.7mm tip and pressure sensitivity, the Galaxy Note 7 S Pen provides a real pen-like experience. The new water-resistant S Pen gives users an ability to create and share GIFs with Smart Select, whereas Air Command functions, including Magnify and Translate, enable users to zoom in on the screen or convert languages by simply hovering even if the screen has gone wet.
