6. Expandable storage

The more we use our smartphones, the more they need to be capable of storing a wide variety and large volume of content. The Galaxy Note7 ensures you’ll never be short of space for work or play, with 64GB of internal storage and up to 256GB of expandable memory offering a total of 320GB combined. Samsung is even providing a bonus 256GB microSD memory card for anyone who pre-orders the device, providing Australians with an added value of $299.

7. The Galaxy Ecosystem

More than just a smartphone, the Note7 allows users to unlock a galaxy of incredible experiences. It enables you to connect with the new Gear VR, Gear 360, Gear Fit2, Gear IconX, and even the TabPro S. It also provides access to services like Samsung Pay, S Health Samsung Cloud and Samsung Knox.

8. Secure Folder

While the boundaries between work and life can be blurred, the Galaxy Note7 enables you to keep your files and apps secure with the Secure Folder. This feature can be used to store private information that can only be accessed by you, thanks to Samsung’s defence-grade Knox system and iris scanner. If privacy is of utmost importance, the Galaxy Note7 has you covered.

9. Upgraded Always On Display

With Samsung’s Always On Display, you can receive information at a glance without waking your phone. It’s also smart enough to be automatically disabled when your Galaxy Note7 is placed in your pocket or bag, face down or running a low battery. Taking this feature even further, the Galaxy Note7 now enables you to make and save important notes on its screen using the S Pen without waking the phone.

10. USB Type-C

With the Galaxy Note7 you’ll never plug your connector in the wrong way again, thanks to the introduction of the USB Type-C input. The Note7 offers faster data transfer and charging speeds, and Samsung is including a microUSB to USB Type-C adapter in the box with every phone to ease the transition.
