Last week, Samsung launched Galaxy Note7 and we were invited at the SneakPeak and LiveStream event here in Dubai. The feature of the phones are already mentioned in our previous post but it was important to know how they are launching the device in this region and for that, Samsung had a regional launch last night at Four Seasons Resort in Jumeirah, Dubai.


Just to give you a recap of the interesting features; With refined craftsmanship, premium materials and a unique symmetrical edge design, the Galaxy Note7 features are:

  • A water resistant body and S Pen (IP68)*
  • Top-of-the-line security that combines Samsung Knox with biometric authentication including a new iris scanning feature
  • Immersive entertainment features with HDR video streaming capabilities


Last night, Mr Tarek Sabbagh, Head of IT and Mobile Division at Samsung Gulf took over the stage and talked about #TheNextGalaxy, “In 2011 we launched and pioneered an all-new category of large screen smartphones together with the unique S-Pen. Over the years, each edition of the Note series has reconfirmed Samsung’s vision and commitment for development by improving consumer experience in a simple, productive and distinctive way. With the Galaxy Note7 we have reinvented the large-screen smartphone segment with a unique combination of productivity tools, entertainment services and security features. In addition, the Galaxy Note7 powers a robust ecosystem that strikes a balance between work and play, enabling people to achieve more than what they thought possible on a smartphone not just faster but wherever and whenever,” said Tarek Sabbagh, Head of IT and Mobile (IM) Division at Samsung Gulf Electronics.


The Galaxy Note7 will be available starting August 19, in Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and Black Onyx and a recommended retail price of AED 2999. A 128 GB microSD card will be supplied to complement the 64GB of internal memory.
