Finally, everyone (well, at least those in select markets for now) can buy one of the most beautifully designed phones ever made. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has hit select markets in commercial quantity.

For those who can afford the amazingly beautiful phone made by Samsung in select markets across Canada, the US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, the UAE, and Korea; the Note 7 will cost in excess of $800. Not a high price to pay for a phone that is winning hearts on phone and tech blogs—virtually everyone has giving kudos to the ingenuity behind its design and specs.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a 5.7-inch phablet that changes everything about the way the market views phones with large screen. It’s a phablet made for everyone—from the diehard selfie king, to the business man on the streets, there is something in it for everyone.

The Note 7 features a symmetrical dual-edge design, while providing a comfortable grip as well as easier one-handed operation—regardless of its 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display.

Prior to Thursday’s commercial launch, demands in the market has been pretty high—with reports claiming that the South Korean tech giant is struggling to keep up with pace. I suspect delays in the official release of the Note 7 in multiple European countries could be down to high demands.



Another reason for the delay in launching the Note 7 in the European market could be down to how Samsung rates other markers in Asia, Canada, the US, and the rest. Regardless, next month is the turn of the European market.

“Some countries, such as the Netherlands and Russia, will see the phone’s arrival delayed due to supply constraints. Samsung said despite delays the phone will be launched in most markets within September,” Korea Herald reports, quoting an analyst.

According to the Korea Herald, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 shipments could double those of Note 5. Quoting Chosun Biz, a local news publication in Korea, the report said Samsung will produce a monthly average of 3 million units of the phablet in the third quarter, which in comparison, is some 1.6 million units of the Note 5 in 2015. Total shipment is projected to reach 18 million units by the turn of 2016.

According an industry source, per Korea Herald, Samsung is currently in talks with 10 manufacturers, including Petron, in order to improve on its production capacity to meet demands.

Already, demands from markets in Canada and South Korea are on a record high—with the home country hitting 300,000 pre orders.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s iris scanner allows you to lock your phone and content, and carry out financial transactions securely. With an expandable 64GB storage space, 4GB of RAM, and a 5.7-inch QHD Dual Edge Super AMOLED display; $800 doesn’t look like a hefty amount to part with. Also, the issue of power has been well taken care of as the Note 7 comes with a 3,500mAh battery.
