The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will release in the U.K. after its predecessor, the Galaxy Note 5 was never made available in the country. In 2015, Samsung sold the Galaxy S6 Edge+ in the U.K., to the disappointment of many Galaxy Note fans. However, this year, the manufacturer is releasing only one flagship late in the year, the Galaxy Note 7, which features a dual-edge display and an S-Pen.
The Galaxy Note 7 will sell for £749 in the U.K, according to retailer MobileFun . The device will be available for preorder in the U.K starting Aug. 16; those who preorder will receive their handsets by Aug. 20. However, the device will go on sale officially in the U.K. Sept. 2.
U.K. carrier prices for the Galaxy Note 7 may vary. Carriers in the country include Vodafone, EE, O2 and Three. These carriers will also begin accepting Galaxy Note 7 preorders Aug. 16. Those who preorder the device can get a Samsung Gear VR headset.
Standout features on the Galaxy Note 7 include dual-edge curved display, water resistance, USB Type-C and iris scanner. Other features include a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440 resolution) dual-edge curved display and a Quad Core (2.15GHz Dual + 1.6GHz Dual), 64 bit, 14nm process chip, as well as 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with microSD expansion up to 256GB, a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera (both with f/1.7 aperture), a 3,500 mAh battery with fast and wireless charging and the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.
