삼성전자 ‘갤럭시 노트7’ 국내 첫 선…"패블릿의 혁신" Just about a week before its official launch next Friday... Samsung Electronics unveiled its Galaxy Note 7 in Seoul today. It's already been hailed by some as a phablet innovation,... with key features including enhanced water resistance and bio-metric authentication. Our Kim Min-ji tries it out for herself. More freedom and greater convenience. That's what Samsung Electronics is promoting in its latest addition to the Galaxy series -- the Note 7 -- which the company unveiled on its home turf at a media event on Thursday. Samsung gave the device the number seven, even though the previous device in the series was the Note 5, in order to line up with the Galaxy S7 smartphone launched earlier in the year. Above all, it says it put great effort into breaking the perception that there is no end to innovation. "Samsung Electronics was the pioneer of the tablet smartphone. The Note 7 is more complete. We hope to open a new era in the global market. We put a great deal of emphasis on using top-notch technology and boosting the software and services." The phablet, which has a price tag of roughly 890 U.S. dollars,... is similar in appearance to the Galaxy S7 Edge. Samsung has stepped up the features of the S-Pen, allowing for underwater use,... as well as a function that offers foreign language translation. Also creating a lot of buzz... the Note 7 comes with iris recognition, promising users more security and greater privacy. The feature is the first of its kind in the Galaxy series. "In a split second,... users can unlock their smartphone and start mobile banking without the hassle of having to go through complex verification procedures." Samsung has started taking pre-orders for the device,... and over 200-thousand people signed up in the first two days. That's about double what it was for the Galaxy S7, released in March. "Samsung's marketing and promotion of the Note 7 have boosted its early popularity. The product is actually very impressive,... especially the S-pen and biometric authentication. Sales are expected to surpass those of its predecessor." While Apple is scheduled to release its new iPhone next month,... experts say that unless it has some game-changing features,... Samsung can expect to see strong sales,... which could help lift the profits of its mobile division in the latter half of the year. Kim Min-ji, Arirang News.
