The new Samsung Galaxy Note7 has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. The Korean giant finally made the phablet official on Tuesday, but that was far from the end of the story. Leaks and rumors were quickly replaced by first impressions, hands-on videos and preliminary performance tests.
We’re not one to shy away from the Note7 craze and have been keeping up with the flow, bringing interesting content and news about the handset as it becomes available. We are already clear on pricing and availability and have been exploring some accessories like the Gear VR as well.
