Samsung Electronics Co., the world's largest maker of smartphones, unveiled a new Galaxy Note phablet in NY on Tuesday in a bid to keep up the momentum of its smartphone sales.

Other than the stylus, the Galaxy Note 7 also brings several other enhancements and features to the device versus Galaxy Note 5. When it comes to storage, the Note 7 has 64 GB storage, but it comes with a MicroSD card that can be expanded to 25GB.
