Looks like Samsung really had nothing better to talk about at the ‘Galaxy Note 7’ launch event, something that would actually make the event interesting, than to make fun of Apple’s “rumoured decision” to remove the 3.5mm audio jack from its upcoming ‘iPhone 7’. “Do you know what else it comes with? An audio jack, just saying,” Justin Denison, Samsung’s SVP of product strategy, said on stage, as he showcased the company’s latest flagship smartphone (via Business Insider).

Aside from the audio jacks, Samsung’s new Note 7 also comes with enhanced S Pen and a water resistant body. Samsung claims that the new S Pen offers improved pressure sensitivity and smaller 0.7mm tip to provide a ballpoint pen-like experience. “Galaxy Note7 provides heightened security and privacy options, with highly advanced biometric authentication, including fingerprint scanner and iris scanning technology, new to the Note series”.
The Galaxy Note 7 will be available at Samsung Experience Shops at Best Buy, as well as Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Car Toys, Sam’s Club, Target and select Walmart stores later this month. To learn more, click here.
