South Korean tech brand Samsung announced and confirmed today a couple of things about its very in-demand smartphone, the Galaxy Note 7, that would possibly help lure more consumers to purchasing the phablet.
Just a few hours ago, Samsung published a new blog entry explaining what the Knox 2.7 security feature does. According to the tech giant, its updated Knox feature offers next-level security by preventing hackers from penetrating an application through the enhanced core kernel security.
Additionally, Knox 2.7 works with the Galaxy Note 7’s iris scanner in implementing top security when it comes to unlocking and accessing the device. Knox also powers Secure Folder, which is basically an encrypted folder for sensitive content and apps. Aside from providing top-of-the-line security however, Knox 2.7 also works in managing the firmware and improving the productivity of the Note 7.
Meanwhile, Yahoo! Tech has learned that Samsung subtly added new items to the ample accessories of the Galaxy Note 7. The South Korea giant updated its website’s Accessories section to include an anti-slip case and add-on lenses among its growing number of Note 7-specific accessories.
The anti-slip case is actually a companion case for the two add-on lenses of the handset. When the Note 7 is snugly covered by the case, it is easy to connect either the telephoto or the wide-angle add-on lenses to the back camera. Though the phablet comes with a 12-megapixel sensor and 4K video-recording capacity, Samsung is still giving owners the option of using add-on lenses to capture more high quality photos.
In related news, Samsung Mobile President Koh Dong-jin has confirmed the existence of a Galaxy Note 7 that rocks 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Unfortunately, the high-capacity storage variant will most likely be available only in China, where the competition for large-storage handsets is tight, as per GSM Arena.
