Big thinking
design

The Galaxy Note 7 was designed with purpose, both inside and out. From the dual-curved display and curved back to the revamped menu and expanded options for personalisation. It's a smartphone that changes the way you get things done—in a big way.

Curved
symmetry

Galaxy Note 7 is the first Note with a dual-curved screen that meets a curved back. Glass on the front and metal on the back bend in unison creating a seamless, flush surface all around. It's the first Note to be perfectly symmetrical, top to bottom, side to side, and front to back.

Designed to curve

Because the back curves with precision, it feels just right whether you're picking it up from a flat surface, or whether you have it in your palm while using the S Pen. On the front, the screen bends just at the last minute to offer maximum space for the S Pen, while delivering the full advantages of a functional edge screen.

Full of potential

With the Galaxy Note 7 bezel pared down to the bare minimum, you get more out of the screen. It's fully prepared to accommodate the way you work and play, be it an important document or a big movie.

Beauty
in simplicity

The lock screen comes to life with a tilt of the phone. Icons and menus are simple and easy to find so you get to where you want in a few simple moves. Essential settings are managed with a swipe down of the Quick Panel. And the various modes on the camera are just easy swipes away.

Note the edge

With the edge screen on the Galaxy Note 7, you have what you want at a flick of the finger. From your favourite apps to the updates you need, from more information shown at a glance to a wider selection on the Tasks edge. What you need is available in the way you want because it's customisable as well.

Always
On Display

The ability to get information at a glance without waking up your phone is significantly better on the Galaxy Note 7. You can choose to get third-party app or calendar event notifications. You could set a custom signature or pin a Screen-off memo to the Always On Display. You're also able to change the clock's colour and style to your liking.
