Samsung Electronics Co Ltd announced the launch of its newest smartphone - Galaxy Note 7- in China.

Featuring a symmetrical dual-edge design, the Galaxy Note 7 provides a comfortable grip and easier single-handed operation, despite its large 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display.

It features an enhanced, water-resistant S Pen, which boasts a sharper pen tip and increased pressure sensitivity to replicate the ease and accuracy of a real pen.

Coupled with Samsung Knox, an industry-leading security platform, the smartphone provides heightened security and privacy, with highly advanced biometric authentication, including fingerprint scanner and iris scanning technology.

D.J. Koh, president of mobile communications business of Samsung Electronics, said: "We are always listening to the voice from Chinese customers and making efforts to innovate and step forward and to satisfy their demands."

By pairing the smartphone with the new Gear VR powered by Oculus, users can experience premium virtual reality almost anywhere.

Market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) said Samsung Electronics retained its leadership as it did in Q1, shipping 77 million smartphones and capturing 22.4 percent of the market in the second quarter, surpassing Apple Inc and Huawei Technologies Co Ltd combined.

It has been available for pre-sale since last Friday at Samsung's official website,, Tmall and offline stores, and will be offered in Blue Coral, Gold Platinum and Black Onyx.
