Samsung just introduced its newest Galaxy Note and they hope to outdo Apple with a big new security feature: iris scanning. The phone will feature both a fingerprint scanner and iris scanning for added security with their Samsung Knox platform. The phone will also feature a water-resistant body, a newly updated S Pen with a finer tip and IP68 water resistance, and a curved 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen. 

Going deeper into the specs, the phone will feature Android Marshmallow, an Octa core processor, 4GB of RAM, a dual pixel 12MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, and a 3,500 mAh battery. Look for the Galaxy S7 Note to hit the shelves on August 19th.
